What I Stitched On Last Week


My stitching has continued to be quite random lately, just working on what calls me at the moment. I have a little progress to share from last week:

Lazy Alphabet by La D Da.

(This one is so fun!)

Charmed by Raise the Roof

(Also so fun!)

English Sampler Pillow

(I messed up the spacing of the mauve dots so I have to take out half of them. Argh! And then I simply must address that pesky row I need to rechart! Wish me courage and luck!)

Angels by Country Cottage Needleworks

(It’s coming way too slow for how small it is but I only work on it at my little guy’s swim lesson so 1/2 hour a week).

I also framed my little Jeanette Douglas Sunflowers. I found a good frame at Hobby Lobby but it was white and gray and silver and that didn’t go very well so I painted it. This one makes me happy!

So this was a nice productive little week but now I would like a satisfying finish soon so I guess I need to CONCENTRATE!

August Small: French Garden Fob


I finished up the French Garden Fob from 2 weeks ago for my August Small!

Boy was this ever fiddly. It came out fine but I wish the back had come together nicer. It was so quick to stitch up perhaps I’ll give it another go in the future. Or at least attempt the technique again which was an interesting approach to backing with the same linen you stitch on. That was neat.

I’m linking up with Heather from Stitching Lotus, so if you want to see more beautiful Smalls check out her link! And if you are visiting from there, thanks for coming, and I hope you’ll visit again!

Sunday Stitching


I wanted to see if I could make a whole small in a day. I chose the fob from French Garden by The Drawn Thread. I will for sure get it done tonight, I have 3/4 of the border left, but wanted to take a picture while there is still good light. Here it is!
