Started Stitching My Token of Love by Rosewood Manor

My-Token-of-Love-Rosewood-Manor-SamplerMy January stash acquisition to kick of the new year with was the chart and supplies to stitch My Token of Love by Rosewood Manor, along with a few extra packs of my favorite John James Needles because you can never have enough extra needles.

Over the past year I’ve been eyeing several of Rosewood Manor’s patterns and they’re quickly becoming a favorite for me. If you’ve been following my window shopping adventures here on the blog you’ve probably seen them pop up a few times.

So here’s my stitching progress so far… [Read more…]

Finished My January Snowflake

Actually, I finished it about a week ago, I just needed to get the pictures off the new camera and figure out all the settings and buttons. I’m still not sure where all the settings are on this tiny little camera yet. But, here’s my snowflake, finally finished.

Loretta’s Annual Report of the Stitching for 2012

Last year I didn’t have a lot of finishes to share at the end of the year, or even a lot of progress to share. Fortunately, 2012 has shaped up to be a nice year of stitching for me. Let’s have a look…

Almost There on Paisley Pumpkin

I had hoped to stitch *two* of the fall Mill Hill kits this month, but things have been busy lately so it looks like I’ll only get one stitched up. I just realized I haven’t posted an update on this project recently, I’m such a slacker. But there is progress and I’m well past half way now.

Unhappy with the Floss Toss ~ the Woes of a Stitcher

gaelic-banner-dracolairA little over a month ago I finally broke down and bought the supplies for the project that keeps me up at night wanting to stitch it – Gaelic Banner from Dracolair.

I’ve been drooling over it for the longest time, having all these mental conversations with myself about whether or not I could tackle such a big project. In fact, I bought the kit for Paisley Pumpkin that I’ve stitching in the same order as those supplies.

But you’ll notice I haven’t posted a start on Gaelic Banner yet. I’m having fabric issues. I just can’t find the perfect fabric. I’ve gone through several pieces of amazing fabric already and once I put them with the chart and the threads I decide they’re all wrong. Kelly at Stitchnmomma even created a piece just for me, which is beautiful and awesome and going to be used for another project. [Read more…]

Stitching Paisley Pumpkin by Mill Hill

Paisley Pumpkin kit from Mill Hill was my Labor Day weekend travel project… Not a lot of progress to see so far.

Oak Island Mystery Starting to Take Shape

I made some good progress on Pirate Treasure the past few nights stitching a little at a time. You can see the top of the hidden pirate’s hat being outlined here in the lime green color. (I didn’t realize the lighting was weird on this photo until after I uploaded. I blame the stormy weather.)

Happy Dance! Dream is a Wish

Lately I’ve been stitching on bigger projects and suffering from that blah feeling you get when you haven’t celebrated a finish in awhile. I’m sure you can relate to what I mean, that moment you want to finish something, anything at all. So I took a few minutes to dig through my stash and pull out some small charts that I keep on hand for just such a stitching emergency.

Oh Look, There’s a Corner of Border

I am convinced that I have turned into the slowest stitcher on the planet. I used to be able to finish a medium sized project in two weeks or less, now it takes me forever to finish anything.

I am determined to create more stitching time for myself somehow. But, here’s a little bit of progress on the quote I’ve been stitching and you can see a corner of the border…

Progress is Happening Slowly on These Two

I haven’t had as much time to stitch as I’d like to, but I’ve made some progress this week nonetheless. I did a little bit of stitching on Pirate Treasure over the weekend…

I love this pattern and it’s coming along nicely, but I think I’m going to put it away for awhile and come back to it later on. I’m itching to dig into some new stash that I bought [Read more…]
