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.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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?

And I think that my tortoise-like stitching pace has become impossibly slower with this piece. After finishing the stitching on the main sewing pocket (albeit I finished after the workshop was over), I’m now attempting […]
