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.


Five Fathoms Down

Mermaid Fraktur

At the end of 2016 I was asked if I would be interested in doing some model stitching for my newly reopened LNS, The Stitch Niche. The new owners are working hard to get some new models up in the shop, which I thought was a wonderful idea. They asked me to stitch on of Paulette’s (Plum Street Samplers) new designs, Mermaid Fraktur. They had chosen 36 count Earthen by Picture This Plus, which I think was a brilliant choice, and the called for threads.

Rolling Along

Thanks for all the comments on my last post.  It’s been fun working on some summery projects while the mood strikes.  Although I haven’t worked on it in awhile, I thought I would share my latest progress on And They Sinned.  The photo above is basically the middle (the fold) on page two.  I’ve been […]


Summer Stitches

Hi, everyone!  I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer.  I’ve been working on a couple of projects that just seemed like the perfect thing for summertime.  You may remember a while back I started the Tula Pink Hex on the Beach quilt.  It was an English Paper Piecing (EPP) kit that was offered at […]


Snooty Turtle SAL

I’m so bad at keeping up with SALs, I really am.  And yet, each and every time I’m presented with one I leap right in with both feet.  Hope springs eternal.  So, at the beginning of the year, a SAL began in one of the Facebook groups to stitch the Snooty Parrots Sampler by Barbara […]


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 […]


Two Cakes in One

So far this year, each one of my WIPocalypse posts have featured a finish, which is pretty fantastic. First it was Margaret Cottam, then last month it was the bonus block from Anniversaries of the Heart and this month it’s another Anniversaries of the Heart block. I’m a little overdue for my WIPocalypse post this […]


Mademoiselle Victorine

Remember back on New Year’s Eve, when I showed you the photo above of these beautiful silks? Remember when I said they were my New Year’s Day start? Ah, good times. Well, on January 1 I made an executive decision that instead of starting a new piece as planned, I wanted to continue on with […]


Be My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s a little overcast and dreary looking out today, but I thought I’d share a few special things that are brightening me up. Above you can see this pretty heart-shaped Whitman’s box. This was a gift from a sweet friend of mine. She bought these, not only so that we could indulge […]


Eat, Pray, Love

Eric and I have been married almost six years. Our wedding ceremony and reception were greatly influenced by his Italian heritage on his mom’s side. For our honeymoon, we went to Rome. When we were planning our wedding, Eric ran across a phrase in Italian that he really loved. It translates to “my heart is […]


Decadence

Thanks, everyone, for your sweet compliments on Margaret Cottam. I really appreciate them. Unfortunately, not a whole lot of stitching has gone on here in the past couple of weeks, so I don’t have much stitching progress to show you. But, I did something really self-indulgent and took the day off work on Wednesday. I […]
