Sweetheart Sampler Stocking
30ct St. Valentine’s Blend by R&R
GAST Cherry Bark
Look, another finish! After finishing Margaret Pence, I decided to pick this little stocking back up that I had started right after Romeo died. It made me feel really good to have a quick little finish on this. And since Romeo was my little sweetheart, this stocking will for sure remind me of him. I only have one more of the February stockings to stitch. You may remember I stitched February’s Violets in remembrance of my grandmother’s birthday last year. So, I may decide to just go ahead and start that other stocking here soon. They are such fun little stitches, and so colorful. I love this St. Valentine’s fabric, it has the slightest pink hue to it that really looks so pretty with the Cherry Bark thread.
After finishing up the stocking on Friday night, I decided to pick my Anniversaries of the Heart piece back up. This piece is giving me such fits. I had issues starting and then set it aside, then I decided to pick it back up, stitched on it all weekend (got farther than this photo shows) and then spent all night last night ripping out everything I’d stitched since Friday. Bummer. There was no way to fudge it since my mistake was in the bottom border, which has to line up since I’m stitching these all together on one piece of fabric. I really wish I could get a better photo of this, but like I said, this piece is giving me trouble.
And I had thought I would start my new piece this weekend, I pulled together my fabric and threads. I’m missing a few threads, which I didn’t think was a big deal, but when I sat down to stitch, they were the two threads I really needed to start. Nice. So, no new start this weekend. But, here’s a little sneak peek. I’m missing a blue, a couple of greens and another gold.
So, other than my finish, stitching was kind of a bust this weekend. Oh well, maybe I can find a new groove this week.
Until next time, happy stitching!
I am grateful for my sweetheart.
