Little things


I was working on my smalls last week. I finished the stitching on the grow! pin cushion. Isn’t it pretty? I can’t wait do complete the finishing.

I need to check if it needs beads. There might be a few. 

I got the gingerbread man done on the Little House ornament. Some of the stitches look a little wonky but I think I’ll leave it as is. Just need to do the border and candy canes he’s holding now.

And I decided on the rest of the colors for my April ornament for the snow scene theme so I’ve got to finish that up by next week. Here it is so far:

It is First Snow by The Drawn Thread. That middle bird on the right was supposed to be white but I used a dove gray. Blends in too much, don’t you think? I had better change it back to white.

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!
