Snail stitching


I feel like I have been progressing at a snail’s pace these days. We’re busy and I’m tired! But this week I’ve buckled down and spent some good time with Random Thoughts and the Just Nan pin cushion.  

I finished the 1 over 1 motto!

And here’s the whole thing so far:

I can see my self-designated stopping point approaching! 

And here’s the grow pin cushion. I can’t tell if it’s flowers or butterflies. Whatever it is, it’s pretty!!

March Finish for Smalls SAL


I did it! I have it ready to post on the day it’s due over at Stitching Lotus‘s 2017 Smalls SAL! Thanks for hosting, Heather! Here’s my small:

It is Stoneware Bunny by Priscilla’s Pocket. It came as a little kit, just needed to add my own backing. I choose a striped denim which I thought went pretty well with the colors in the Black Raspberry Jam GAST used-better than the calicos that were available. I did run out of thread because I wanted to use 2 strands instead of 1 to get better coverage. And I changed it a bit because I decided I wanted a spotty bunny instead of of a stripey bunny. I have never seen or heard of any stripey bunnies so I thought spots were better.

Here are a couple other small finishes this month, first the Snow Fun Mill Hill ornaments I did for the Christmas Ornies SAL:

And in case you didn’t see it yet, my Just Nan grow! tin, which I just love. I am working on the pin cushion that goes inside right now.

Finally, as little PSA: there is a giveaway you can enter over at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe  this month for one of the most gorgeous floss collections- check it out!

Thank you so much for checking out my blog and please leave me a comment! 🙂

A case of startitis


As if I don’t have enough going on, this week I caught a bad case of startitis.

I started March of Joyful World! Which is my only legitimate start because I have to at least start March in March, right?

(is February done? No, it is not! Not quite anyway! I am still deciding on my special stitching for the baseline.)

I started this! (my Ornies SAL for April)

It is a freebie from The Drawn Thread called First Snow.


I started this! (My spring Smalls FB challenge)

This is the pin cushion to go in the Just Nan grow tin I finished earlier this month.

I started this and I almost finished it! (I ran out of thread because I wanted to use 2 ply instead of one-bunny still needs spots-I will change the stripes to spots)

It is Stoneware Bunny by Priscilla’s Pocket released at Nashville this year.


I started this random thing, Little House’s Gingerbread Man ornament, which I had no business starting because it doesn’t fit in my schedule or plans-I just wanted to get going on it because I FINALLY have the floss I need!

I also gave way too much time to Spring Arose: 

But I spared some minutes for Random Thoughts because I got my missing color! Can you tell I made any progress? I can’t! I worked on the satin stitch elements which is time consuming counting for sure!

I’d say a pretty severe case of startitis! Hopefully it means something will be finished sometimes this month too!
