Hi everyone! Time for a chat about what’s been going on with my needle and thread lately. I am at least going to have one seasonal finish this autumn! Since my last blog post I finished this older freebie by With Thy Needle & Thread (you can find it here).
Stitched on fabric from my stash and the suggested colours but my interpretation of which colour went where. Now if I could just ‘finish finish’ this one……could be that it will be next autumn before I can actually display it as ‘something’ not just a stitched piece!
Next up, another seasonal piece, Ghoul Tidings from Paulette at Plum Street Samplers which is in the JCS Halloween issue this year.
I’m using the suggested colours and a fabric from my stash, no idea what colour it is, but I like how it is working with the suggested threads and I’m pleased to be using something from my stash that has been waiting to be used for a number of years.
There has been some dilly-dallying this month with A Sampler Story with only the first of two planned blocks for this month completed to date. When I finally got down to it I had fun with Adam and Eve.
Next week the whole focus will be stitching the second square for the month. After that I’ll only have four more squares to complete!!!!
I hope I’m not getting ahead of myself in saying that another finish could be right around the corner. I’ve now had several Wednesdays, the SAL day on IG for BN’s Lo How a Rose sampler, where I really feel like I’m making progress. After Wednesday’s stitching this is how the piece was looking…….
I feel a bit like I’m tempting fate saying that I’m only going to need one more Wednesday to complete this but, fingers crossed!
Like many of us, I’ve been enjoying the Sunday Mystery Sampler over at Plum Street Samplers. I love that there are only a couple of motifs to stitch each Sunday so it really is a piece that is easy to keep up with.
I’m stitching Mary’s Sampler II using the suggested Vintage Examplar but in 32ct and the suggested colours.
And that’s about it from my corner of the stitching world! Thanks for all your lovely comments last time round, I may be blogging a number of years now but finding that someone has taken time to leave a comment never gets old. Hope all is well with you and yours and that you have a lovely weekend!
Until next time….
