Overdue Post

March is just flying by. Thank goodness the month is a little longer than February!

I’ve been busy stitching away. The first project that I worked on was this Pinwheel / A Homestead Gathering from Cathy Habermann. The kit is a collaboration with Me and My Stitches. I will receive four packages during the year. The stitching is done. Once I have this “finished finished” I will post a picture of the entire package and all the little goodies we received.

Next up - I’ve been working on this Blackbird Designs project. You will recognize it from the Sewing Club book, but I’ve had this project since 2019. Barb and Alma were the featured designers at Stitchville’s Spring Fling that year. There are four pieces that make up the entire set, I have three of them stitched. (Sorry for not ironing it.)

Finally, I participated in a beginner wool applique class on Zoom with Rebekah L Smith this weekend. This was our project. I still need to stitch the stem that attaches the heart with the leaves and then the flower at the top. I also need to blanket stitch around the outer edge. Almost finished. It was a great class!

Here’s a recent Lizzie photo. She makes me smile every day!

Beautiful stitching! I love the colors in the pinwheel. The crisp white just makes everything look so much richer.
