New stash! · Passione Ricamo SAL · Uncategorized

I’m Here! I’m Here!

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:

Progress on PR SALThis 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.

Stash purchasI 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?

      1. Well I stopped stitching, that is cross stitch. My roommates bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. Which will get me back at cross stitching because I can learn how to make quilts. Blogging is not there yet for me.


  1. Your SAL is coming along nicely 🙂 I’ve never done one before, and I have so many patterns here that my Hubby tends to widen his eyes in slight shock every time I bring a new piece into the house! LOL


    1. I know what you mean. When I want to buy a new pattern, or piece of fabric or scrapbook stuff, he asks why can’t I just use what I have?? They just don’t understand, do they?


  2. Hi Ginny! I’m catching up on my blog reading and glad to see your update! Glad that your son has decided on his college plans. How exciting!

    Love all your new stash. That will certainly keep you busy for awhile!!! Funny how things just fall into your bag. Haha.That seems to happen to me too.

    Hope that you’re enjoying Summer!


    1. Thanks, Fawn. I do miss my blog posting and reading. Trying to get back into both. I am trying to take Summer one day at a time so that it doesn’t go by so quickly, but it is still flying by. I hope yours is going wonderfully.


    1. Thanks, Angela. I don’t know when I will be able to start the Snow Globe Mantel, but it is very cute. And I received a call from my LNS that the other 2 parts are in so I can pick them up anytime. How exciting! I see more stitchy stuff being added to my stash in my near future 😉


  3. Hi Ginny, I love all your new stash 🙂 I’ve been very restrained of late lol but looking at your lovely stash makes me want to buy lol


    1. I know what you mean, Summer. I have been working on a big project, and designers keep coming out with beautiful things that I keep adding to my list of “things I want to stitch”. It is fun shopping, though 😉


  4. Kaghos, you have to do what makes you happy. You will get back to cross stitching when it is right for you. Enjoy your craft, whatever it is at the moment.
