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 […]


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 […]


Busy as a Bee

You guys probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth, huh?  Well, things have been very busy around here and a lot of late nights and early mornings at work.  I managed to take Friday off though so that I could have a four day weekend, which I really needed.  And amazing what […]


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 […]


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 […]


The Tortoise and the Hare

And just when you thought I was finished with this Hare Pyns stitching…there’s more. It’s neverending. I just keep stitching. 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 […]
