SAT Friday and a new start!

I really enjoyed this SAT Friday over at the Let’s Stitch blog and got a lot done on my stocking. I am again hopeful that I will have it done before Christmas. I had kind of lost all hope and was getting pretty bored with the piece, so many quarter stitches and confetti stitches and gaaaaah! It was just driving me crazy! Then I thought ‘One stitch at a time. One stitch at a time’ and it got easier again. So here are my results!

Stitchers Stocking Before&After
Stitcher’s Studio Christmas Stocking from Cross Stitch & Country Crafts magazine, Issue July/August 1989

I also started a project from my box of projects. It is the ‘Little Woman’ series of thread packs from Little House Needleworks. I started ‘Quilting’ last Monday and have been working on it on and off since then. The others in the series are Reading, Gardening and Baking. You can see a picture of them here (scroll down a bit). Anyway, here is my progress on this project also:

Little Women - Quilting
Little Women series from LHN ‘Quilting’
Threads: CCC
Fabric: 32ct Attic Lace from Lakeside Linens

So that is all my progress this week. I am thinking about if the new challenge for the Let’s Stitch blog will be a good excuse to start something new. LOL! I was thinking about something small, maybe something for Christmas. I am going to think about it at least 🙂

    I really love the stocking. It is coming along very nicely. Makes me wish I had one stitched for me.

    Now….. The quilting piece is cute but I am not sure I would stitch them as a set because they don’t all apply to me. Are you doing them all?

    TDee

  7. Yes TDee, I am going to do them all one the same piece of fabric. I wasn’t so sure about Reading, but after seeing it stitched, and seeing the threads I just love it 🙂

  8. You´re doing great with the stocking. I know you´ll finish it before Christmas.
    LHN is looking very cute.

  9. Your stocking is gorgeous!

    I love the Quilting design too, and it’s also in my stash, soon to be joined by the other three. And this weekend I started a different one of these little LHN/CC packs, Iced Tea. It’s my very first one – they’re great fun, aren’t they?

  10. Wow- love your quilting pieces!! Your work is so lovely and I love the choice. It’s always fun to start something new!! Heaven help the pattern shops if we ever stop having that urge!
