I see it’s been a while, but I am still here and stitching. Some things happened in my life that caused me to be off-track. I am trying to get back into things again. Some good things that happened-My youngest son graduated high school and will be attending college in the fall. I wasn’t sure what he was going to do, but we finally found the perfect college and he is excited about starting.
I have been stitching on a model stitch, so I can’t share that one. I will say that it is quite involved and is coming out beautifully. I have been able to add a few stitches to the Passione Ricamo Stitch A Long and here is where I am with that one:
This piece is such a joy to stitch on. It will end up looking very similar to a Round Robin. You can see it here on Passione Ricamo’s website. It is going to be beautiful when I finish it someday.
I also have some new stash to share. I visited my LNS yesterday and a few things fell into my bag that was already on hold. A couple of these I picked up on my last trip, too.
I picked up that last 3 Mira’s released. And today 2 more witches and a mermaid were released. I will have to pick them up next time. I found the Snowglobe mantel piece by Bent Creek. I picked up the 2nd piece as the shop was out of the 1st and 3rd pieces. What a cute piece that will be. And my cute froggy bag. Love the fabric, was bummed that the bag is flat. I’m sure I will find some things to put inside, though. Two adorable Christmas patterns by Country Cottage Needleworks. I have seen both of these in progress on a couple of blogs and I just love the colors! Pink and blue and pink and green, marvelous! And last, Chocolate Monday by Kit & Bixby. Before I gave up chocolate in February, I was a chocoholic. This pattern just called out to me. I love the pink and brown and the font is way cool.
So that is my update for now. I am off to stitch for a bit. What new things have you added to your stitching stash?
