Two little finishes and Three little starts

I just love smalls. It is so satisfying to finish something! Here is what I got done last week: A pair of Mill Hill skates for Daughter #1 (I will make it again right away for Daughter #2 but in purple) And the Threadwork Primitives Quaker Birds Pinwheel: I bought the backing fabric this week …

September Smalls

Well, it is very frustrating to have followed all the instructions and gone through a lot of effort to get it right and then things just don’t work out! I ordered the specified box from Hobby Lobby for Spring Arose and my piece is TOO BIG to fit on it. I double checked. It’s the …

Diligence! A Smalls Update

OR How Regular Stitching Has Paid Off This Month. The kids are back in school, so that means I return to my regular schedule and some time to stitch in the car waiting for the pick up. And with the routine back in place, I also end up with some time in the evenings too. …

Another Month, a New Batch of Starts

I finished Fraktur Friends! I love it!  (Where is my picture??) To celebrate, I kitted up all the things I hope to work on (and complete) in the next  month. And then I started them all. First, the 2001 Prairie Schooler Santa. 2001 is important for me because it is my anniversary year. I like …

Stitching time

I had a 3 hour blood test today which meant an unusual amount of daytime stitching time. I was actually looking forward to it in order to have that stitching time!

Under the Wire April Smalls

Here, finally, is my small for this (last) month, the Gingerbread Man Ornament by Little House Needleworks. I’ve always thought this is one of their cutest ornaments and I’m glad to have made it! It would have been done sooner if only I could count to 3 accurately on those border corners! Ugh! All but …
