February Fully Finished Objects

Thanks to Rachel, I have been motivated to FFO a few more smalls this month! I already showed you my 2 Mill Hill Santas… And here is the snowflake all finished. This is Mill Hill’s “Ice Crystal” from the Snow Crystals series. I finish them very simply, the way my Grandma always did. I hot …

Toccata 1 update and my ornaments

I’m continuing to make a lot of progress on Toccata 1! I have about 13 more motifs until I can’t do more without my thread order. One motif is all Queen stitch so that will take a whole stitching session but otherwise I’ve been doing about 5 motifs a day so I should arrive at …

November (and October) FFOs

I didn’t get my October FFOs posted in time for the deadline last month for Rachel’s Fully Finished Object Gallery, so I saved the post and added a few to it for November! Here are 2 months of FFOs! October: First I framed Let It Bee from The Drawn Thread. Cynthia made it easy on …

A Couple Smalls for July

I’m linking up with Heather of Stitching Lotus for our monthly Smalls check in! I got all the beads on Star Santa, as perhaps you expected! Do you remember this Threedles design from a while ago? I found the beads I needed on clearance at JoAnn’s so I got that done too! So fancy! I …

In the good old summertime

Here in Arizona it is hot, hot, hot! The heat really saps my energy! And, with the kids’ summer activities, I don’t have blocks of time for stitching, alas! However I do snatch moments here and there on a variety of small projects. Little by little it adds up, and I realize have quite a …
