Just Seven More Days

Stitchville's Spring Fling begins a week from today!

This design from Blackbird Designs is meant to be a birth sampler. I stitched it to commemorate the short life of one of my mom's sisters.

The countdown to Spring Fling continues....10 days!

Today's Blackbird post is yet again one of their older Loose Feathers. I think this one was called Evening Shades the Garden.

A Little Stitching

I've discovered that I can work on tiny projects on stiff linen on the plane. I started adding the strawberries to this Catherine Theron needlebook.

This next piece shows progress from last night and tonight. This is a piece I started as a spring challenge in the All About Smalls Facebook group. It's called Darling Buds of May from Blackbird Designs.

Time for bed!

Just 11 Days!

Just 11 days until Spring Fling with Blackbird Designs!

This is another one of their older Loose Feathers designs.

Happy Monday. Hope you have a good week!

Four Calling Birds

My March installment of Satsuma Street's 12 Days of Christmas in complete.

Four calling birds,
Three French Hens,
Two turtle doves

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

12 Days and Counting

I'm always wishing for more time, but I'm hoping time goes quickly these next two weeks. I am so looking forward to Stitchville's Spring Fling with Blackbird Designs!

This is one of their Loose Feathers pieces that I stitched back in 2006. It's called Quaker Garden.

What Have I Been Stitching?

I'm kind of stuck on this one. It's With My Needle from the Goode Huswife. The top half is almost done....

Hope your weekend was filled with stitchy goodness!

And I have a few more words to stitch on the top line....

Disappearing Act

After posting to this blog every day during the month of February, I took a brief hiatus. My friends commented last weekend about my absence, but yesterday, while visiting the Mad Tatter, she scolded me. She looks forward to seeing regular blog updates. Guess I better not disappear again!

Last weekend, our guild organized a stitching weekend at a local hotel. Two days of stitching bliss. With friends. And good food. Doesn't get any better than that!

I worked on Spring Delivery from With Thy Needle and Thread. I also stitched another spool design from Milady's Needle.

Tonight I finished Spring Delivery.

While visiting the Mad Tatter yesterday, I took a photo of the tatted doily on her dining room table.

She is having fun tatting Ice Drops and I found a tree for her to display them on.

While traveling this week, I worked on the Strawberry Needlecase from Catherine Theron. This matches the biscornu that I finished stitching last month.

Won't take long to finish the stitching on this.

I am going to need to find a weekend or two (or three) in the near future for finishing. Lots of projects waiting to be finished!
