The Strawberry Patch

This is challenge piece number three - The Strawberry Patch from Homespun Samplar.


This is a delicious stitch.  I’m not quite sure why I sopped working on it!

12 Days of Christmas

Yep, you probably figured you would see this one in the mix.  I should be able to finish it, right?  I’ve already stitched seven of the days!


It’s been fun looking at everyone’s picks for the #stitch9challenge!  I hope we are all successful in finishing them!

Wild Roses

I’ve been working steadily on this piece and will continue stitching on it until It is finished.


I’ve also joined the “Stitch 9 Challenge” on Instagram and have selected nine projects which I would like to finish this year.  Wild Roses is number one.  I’ll show the other eight projects to you over the next few days.

Hope the New Year is going well for you.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2019!

I opted not to start a new project today.  Instead, I decided to continue stitching on a piece I started back in October.  It’s called Wild Roses and it is from Carriage House Samplings.


I stitched this once before as a gift for a friend.  This time, I’m stitching it for me.  It will be personalized, but I have to work all of that out yet.

The linen is a pretty golden yellow with very subtle hints of an orangey pink here and there.  It is very pretty.

Wishing you peace and many hours of stitching in the new year!

Going Out With a Bang

The last few days have been positively delightful!  Despite working around the holidays, I have found time to stitch.  And the best part of all - I have two finishes!

My first finish is a mini-finish.  I completed another block on Satsuma Street’s 12 Days of Christmas.  The seven swans can swim now!



My second finish is Letters from Santa from With Thy Needle and Thread.  I am not sure yet how I will fully finish this one.



Best wishes for good health and more stitching time in 2019!

P.S. Doris and Art, thanks for stopping by.  Best wishes in the New Year!

Blogmas -December 15, 2018

Finally, some stitching!  Today, I finished block six on Satsuma Street’s 12 Days of Christmas!


I started this piece two years ago.  My plan was to stitch a block a month.  I guess I’m kind of behind!


Went to a wonderful Christmas concert on Thursday night.  Saw the Tenors!  Second row seats!  It was fabulous.

Blogmas -December 9, 2018

Blogging daily is kind of like going on a diet.  It’s a wonderful idea.  The thought of posting and losing weight are exciting.  I can make a plan and carry it out for a couple of days and then various challenges get in the way.  Just like the diet, I’m going to try again.  Let’s see if I can make it until next weekend.

Today I want to share with you a festive planter that I received from my co-workers for my birthday (Nov 30).  It’s sitting on our dining room table on top of a new quilted tablerunner that I picked up yesterday at a holiday boutique.


I will share my stitching progress in a separate post.  Don’t get too excited, it’s pretty grim!
