Friday & Saturday Stitching

Lots of stitching this weekend. 

I finished the over one on the C, D, E, and F blocks for the Sampler Book from Erica Michaels.

I started and finished this perforated paper project from Hands on Design.

I also spent some quality time with Catherine’s Big Heart from La D Da. I still have to complete the over one on this one (maybe next weekend).

We have been eating well. We had Chicken Parmesan last night.

We’re staying until Monday so another full day of stitching left!

Stitching Retreat

First day at retreat and I’ve finished four pieces!

1. Stacy Nash - House on Pumpkin Hill - I just needed to finish filling in the large white pumpkin at the bottom. Done!

2. Stacy Nash - Little Sparrow Sewing Box - the bird and the spool of thread needed to be stitched. Done!

3. Erica Michaels - Sampler Book, Letter A - needed to stitch the over one label at the bottom. Done!

4. Erica Michaels - Sampler Book, Letter B - needed to stitch the over one label at the bottom. Done!

I hope that the next three days are equally productive!

Birds & Bees Sewing Roll

I had one more finish this past weekend. This is the Birds & Bees Sewing Roll, Biscornu, and Fob from Stacy Nash. The stitching is finished and the real finishing will come later.

I was working on this when the Queen died so I added a crown at the top of the needle roll.

This project was an exclusive on Facebook.

Knocking these finishes out! It feels good!

Snooty Parrot Sampler

This finish has been eight years in the making! This is the Snooty Parrot Sampler stitched on 40ct Lakeside Vintage Examplar with a silk conversion from the Attic. Don’t study too close - I eliminated a couple of over one motifs. Just needed to be done!

So happy to have this WIP finished!
