My Time Stitching

Hello blogging friends! I’m back for my 6th day in a row with another quick post. I didn’t know if I could do it, but I did. It is the 6th and final day of my blogaversary celebration. My last giveaway will be at the bottom of this post. remember to use the special code word in your comment for today and the previous 5 posts. I will draw for all of the prizes on March 31, 2023 and post the results here on my blog. I truly don’t know where the last 11 years went, but I have had fun with this blog. I have enjoyed posting and sharing what I have been up to and reading your comments and getting to know you through your blogs, too. I have really enjoyed my blog and hopefully you have, too. So what have I been up to since yesterday?

Still stitching on Spring Basket. Sorry about the wrinkles, but I don’t really feel like ironing it just to get it all wrinkled again when I work on it later. It is a more involved stitch than I first thought, but I really am enjoying it. I thought about leaving the border off, but I think it really adds to the design. I just have to finish the border and decide how I want to finish it. The next time that I post, it will be a FFO (Fully Finished Object)

Now for my last giveaway. Another cross stitch pattern. Another favorite designer, Country Cottage Needleworks.

I have many of this designer’s patterns in my stash and I loved this one so much I purchased it twice, LOL. So now I am giving you a chance to win this one. Put code word Christmas in your comment if you would like a chance to win it.

I won’t post again until March 31 when I have picked all of the winners. Again I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving comments. I try to read and respond to each and every one. I have enjoyed sharing what I am up to with you the last 11 years and I look forward to many more. Thank you ❤

Happy Stitching!

  1. I’m a new addition to your blog’s subscribers, but I am so loving it! You stitch such lovely things! I can’t wait to see your FFO!

    Thank you so much for sharing your blogaversary with us! It’s been fun!!


  2. I just love the Spring Basket. The boarder is so effective. Worth the time to do it.
    code word: Christmas
    And I adore the Vintage Christmas pattern too! Looks simple and not overwhelming. The complete opposite of my current project >> “The Quiltmaker” by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum / Lavender & Lace which I question if I will ever finish. I will and will be happy when it is done.



    1. Thank you, Valerie. I definitely think the border is worth doing. I am loving all the stitches in this one.
      I have stitched 2 L & L pieces so I know how intricate they are. I know the pattern you are doing and it will be so beautiful when you are finished. Enjoy the stitches.

  3. Hi Ginny, I definitely think doing the border is worth it. It’s going to make such a sweet little cushion.
    My favourite CCN design I’ve done is ‘Stop and smell the roses’. It has pink, bunnies, roses! But I do like that Christmas design too.

  4. looks like those bunnies will be finished by the end of March which is tomorrow – goodness me, another month gone!
    If this chart could be posted to France, then I’m in for the giveaway (code word! Christmas) if not, good luck to the others!


    1. I actually did finish the pillow on March 31, so I will have the week to enjoy for Easter and then I will probably leave it out in hopes that Spring will arrive. It was a fun stitch. And yes, I can’t believe March is over already!


  5. I think you’re right that the border adds something to the design, it gives a frame and a containment and is very pretty. This has been such a fun week, thank you so much! I’m looking forward to seeing your finished spring basket

  6. I have so enjoyed all of your posts this week. It has been such fun to see your amazing stitching progress. I think the Christmas pattern is beautiful and a perfect project to start when the days start getting warmer and we start longing for cooler days. Thank you for sharing.
