Justine

Today I wanted to share a stitch along I started back in February with my friend, Sylvia.  We wanted to choose something to start while we were in Paris as a remembrance of our trip.  After looking at a few options, we decided to go with Le Marquoir de Justine.  Sylvia had some lovely 40ct […]


Stars in Her Crown

The Tudor Rose Sampler Guild invited Paulette of Plum Street Samplers to come and teach a workshop for us and we commissioned her to design a sampler.   I’ve been counting down the days and anxiously awaiting Paulette’s arrival in Dallas for our class.  Saturday was the big day, and true to form Paulette’s attention […]


Spring is Coming

I really don’t know where the time goes!  March is here and the trees are blooming and we’ve had a few really beautiful days.  Of course this time of year, I’m drawn to brighter colors and I’m really loving my new found focus on the projects I have in progress.  Earlier this week was the […]


Of Angels and Acorns

On Tuesday night before guild, I met a couple of friends for dinner. After we ate, they presented me with a secret project they’d been working on since my dad died. They started with Ghoul by Plum Street Samplers, which I love, and charted out a part of the poem that was read at my […]


How Now Red Cow

As you can see I’ve been working on Isabella some more. I finally got the cow all filled in and went back to do some more leaves. She’s really coming along.  I really am absolutely in love with this sampler. I’m not sure what it is that’s keeping my attention with her right now, but […]


Cow Tipping

Thanks so much for all of your kind words about Othello.  We’ve sure been missing him.  I’ve spent the week trying to get sort of readjusted to having an “empty nest” so to speak.  And I’ve tried to get back to my stitching as well.  One thing that has been brightening my days is my […]


Isabella

Since finishing my Rabbit Box at Easter, I decided that I would work on something else that’s been calling my name. You may remember Isabella Johnstone?  I’m stitching her with the called for Belle Soies on 40ct Vintage Lentil.  And I’ve really been enjoying her (despite having to rip out her entire right hand side […]


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 […]


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 […]


Miss Cottam, I Presume?

She ended up with a 2012 instead of a 2011, but she’s done! I finished her last night (a week later than I’d intended). She really was a complete joy to stitch. I started her on Thanksgiving Day and finished her on January 7th. I used the called for threads (Weeks) in the called for […]


All Hearts Come Home

I thought I’d share a few little photos of our holiday home. I absolutely love having seasonal stitched pieces out, and I hope in the next year to have more of them. I had hoped to have all of my ornaments finished and hanging on the tree at this point, but it hasn’t happened yet. […]


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 […]
