June Goals


I have several small projects going this month, I’m aiming to get a couple of them finished if not all. Here’s where they all are:

Blackbird Design Wild Garden:

Plum Street Sampler’s Birthday Tart:

Beehive Needleworks Peacock Pin Pillow:

What do you think of the “perfect blue?” This is Evening in Paris by Dinky Dyes. It is as bright as I wanted but not as dark, if that makes any sense. Boy it is hard to find a blue that just has the ultramarine, rich, dark but pure bright blue color! Well, I’m not taking it out, this will just have to do!

And a new one: Stitching Bee by Little House Needleworks (one of the Silver Needle’s club kits this year-I heard it will be released next year as a chart). This is very cute and I really like the present they sent this month of the bee needle minder!

So we’ll see what I can do with these this month!

But my big goal is the Hardanger on my Heirloom Nativity. I’ve been afraid of it! But this month I will take it on! I will start on the kloster blocks today!

May Smalls Check In


I finished quite a few Smalls this month which I posted about earlier this week but my “official” Small for the May check in is The Blue Pot Pin Pillow from Mani Di Donna.

When I saw this released at Nashville this year I had to have it! I loved everything about it! The overall colors, the picture, the Gloriana silks, the little silver add ons…and the price which was quite reasonable, I felt!

I don’t often turn around a purchase so fast, that is make it up right away after getting it, but this piece was so charming how could I resist? I just ordered the velvet to make up the pillow so that will be one of my June goals. Stay tuned!

May Flowers


I’m linking up with Jo’s People’s Choice for May- the theme is Flowers.

I feel like a lot of my stitching has flowers in it!

Here are some highlights:

Fobs by The Drawn Thread and The Scarlett House

Blackbird Designs’ “Spring Arose” which still has not been FFO’d but which I still think is SO pretty!

Various Flowers on Pillows:

Sunflowers! by Jeannette Douglas. These remind me of Van Gogh.

And no “Flowers” theme stitching post seems right without including the lovely flowers in my Just Nans!

Thank you for visiting! See you again soon!
