Flosstube Episode 26: The Man with the Gold Pants

In this episode of the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast I share my first Year of WIPs finish, Dark13Stitching, and the start of a new SAL.


Have You Any Wool?

Wee Wooly

Sharing a birthday gift I stitched for a friend – Wee Wooly by Heart in Hand stitched on 32ct Vintage Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens with my own conversion to the color palette I wanted.

Show notes: Finishes: Yowza Weigh It Shawl by Susan B. Anderson – using Miss Babs Yowza in the Zombie Prom colorway and size 8 Signature […]


2016 WIPdown

  In 2015, I focused a lot on my quilt WIPs and working my way through them.  I was very pleased at the end of the year to have made great strides in that arena.  I started with my oldest WIP and with each I finished, I moved on to the next in line (oldest […]


Boughs of Holly

Hi, all!  I hope you had a very merry Christmas.  Today I want to share the EGA holiday party from earlier in the month.  For this ornament exchange I decided to stitch a portion of the pattern Blessings Be Thine by Blackbird Designs.  I loved the little sprig of holly and the stars.  I stitched […]


All the Beads

Thanks so much for the comments on my last couple of posts.  I still can’t believe that I never posted about the guild holiday parties from last year!  And I definitely appreciate you all stopping in to visit my blog.  I know it’s been sorely neglected this year.  I’ve enjoyed doing the video podcasts and […]


Where Did 2014 Go?

It’s that time of year again when the holidays roll around and I am furiously trying to finish up my exchange ornaments for the guild holiday parties.  In all the flurry I realized today that I never shared last year’s fun here on the blog.  Gah!  So, let’s pretend for a moment that it’s December […]


Episode 9: Clearing the WIPs

    Show notes: Finishes: Hand-quilting with perle cotton on my Indulgence table topper quilt – finished 9/11/15 Stealth quilt top pattern by Janet Kime from her book The Cat’s Meow – fabrics purchased and cutting done wayyyyy back in 2001/2002.  Began sewing 4/12/14 and top finished 9/26/15 WIPs: Ornament and guild nametag finishing.  The twisted […]

Unfinished Finishing

I have a confession.  I have a very bad habit of taking classes/workshops and then the project never sees the light of day again.  Maybe.  Ok, yes, seriously I do.  It may be a problem.  There is more than one instance where the only stitches I have in some pieces are the basting stitches.  Anyone […]


Closing Out the Year

I appreciate you all being patient while I play post catch up here.  This post though, as you can tell from the title, is the last of things I wanted to share with you from the end of 2013.   I was very excited when Paulette announced she would be doing a Sunday Mystery SAL back […]


Snow Day

Thanks for all the compliments on my ornament in the last post.  I agree with you – the guild members are a talented group of stitchers!  As you know, I have been attending the Tudor Rose guild’s annual holiday party since I became a member.  I decided this time that I would also attend the […]


The View Above

The past few months it seems I’ve been stitching on a series of things that I couldn’t share – but now they can be revealed!  In early December, I attended the annual Tudor Rose Sampler Guild holiday party.  I’ve enjoyed attending each year but always find that I’m down to the wire getting my ornament […]


Tales of a Hexagon Addict

A couple of months ago, I started another hexagon pincushion for a dear friend’s birthday.  She’d admired the ones I’d made previously, so I just knew that she needed one too.  And not only are hexies downright addictive, they are also a great take-along project.  I’ve found they are a perfect way to keep my […]


Spring’s Song

I had one final finish in 2012 that I’m finally able to share.  I stitched this little piece up for a dear friend’s birthday (which I am notoriously and repeatedly late for).  She spent the majority of her year last year stitching for other people, and I wanted to do something special that was just […]


Time Warp

It’s been a while, huh?  I’m not really sure where September, October or November went.  And obviously, it’s been almost a month since I blogged, which is unheard of for me.  Hopefully, I am back on track now.  Thanks for bearing with me though, and I hope that you’ll enjoy what I’ve got to show […]


Hop To It!

I haven’t felt like doing a lot of stitching lately. But a couple of weeks ago, I spied a little gift bag in my craft closet and inside of it was this sweet little bunny box. Back when Sylvia and I went to Nashville Market together a couple of years ago, we bought these boxes […]


Collecting My Thoughts

I’m still working on getting back in the swing of things, so there’s really no stitching progress to show (I just keep flitting from piece to piece). So, instead I thought I’d just show you some things I’ve been meaning to share and finally got around to taking photos of yesterday. First up is my […]


Auld Lang Syne

Can you believe another year has come and gone? I thought I’d squeak in a final post for the year and do a little recap of 2011. Above you can see my finishes for 2011. A couple of quilts, some beading, some finishing, and a few medium-sized pieces. They are (from left to right): Camille’s […]


Joy

I can finally share with you the ornament I stitched for our guild’s annual ornament exchange. It’s the Blackbird Designs “Joy” ornament from this year’s JCS Ornament Issue. I didn’t have any of the Belle Soies called for on hand, and didn’t want to shell out $90 to buy them for an ornament, so I […]


Denial is Not Just a River in Egypt

Ever have those times in your life when there’s so much “stuff” going on and you’re just feeling completely overwhelmed with life in general? I tend to throw myself into projects to keep my mind busy with whatever I’m working on rather than whatever it is I’m trying to not obsess over. So, the past […]
