Has It Really Been A Year?

Yep!  Looks like my last post was 5/2/16!  Seems like posting photos of my stitching projects on Instagram (with a link to FB) is a whole lot quicker than typing blog posts.  But I thought I would do a quick post to show you a few things I'm working on.

First of all is a sampler by La-D-Da called Me & You.  I'm stitching it on 55 ct. Ivory Kingston linen.  With the high count linen, the stitching is slow.  Hopefully I won't go blind trying to focus on my stitches! 🙀 Here is a picture of my progress on this project.

The next project has been a WIP for over 10 years.  I bought the pattern at a stitch retreat in either 2002 or 2004 and immediately started stitching on it.....but not for long!  It has been sitting at the bottom on a project bag for at least 10 years.  A few weeks ago, I decided to pull it out and start stitching on it again.  I have been working on it frequently but, again, due to the small stitches (one-over-one stitching) it is slow going.  This is a pattern called Splendor IV - A Colonial Coverlet by The Heart's Content.  Take a look.....I almost have the outside border stitched.  You can see how small the piece will be (approx 14" x 2").

The entire piece will be stitched in DMC 815 with the exception of my initials which will be stitched in a slightly lighter or darker (haven't decided which) color.  Here is a better look at the color of the thread.

And finally.....another small that I'm working on.  Here is a photo of what I have done but I am not going to give any more information since this will be a gift and the recipient is on social media.  Once I get it finished and the gift has been given, then I'll post a photo of the completed project with project information.

I stitch like I read books......several at a time.  I am also currently working on a few more projects but will post photos of them later.

So, what are YOU working on?


  1. I know what you mean about just posting pics on social media and not blogging....forgot how time consuming it could be when I started blogging again last week. But glad you're back at it! Love your stitching! I, of course, am working on cards....lots and lots of cards! :) Come make cards with me. I miss you!

  2. Teeny tiny stitcheries! Love the red. Welcome back to blogland. Hope you stick around.

  3. Lots of TINY stitches in those projects... but they will be beautiful once completed... xox
