Blackbird Designs Stocking Finish, Take 1

Not bad for a first attempt at finishing a Blackbird Designs stocking! There’s definitely room for improvement but I learned what to do (read through all the instructions first) and what not to do (assume you know what you’re doing even though you’ve never done this before)! My second attempt should turn out muuuuch better! […]


A Saved Stitches Finish

This is one of the “save the stitches” pieces I picked up at a thrift store in Florida last season! The original post can be seen here. I had all the goodies for finishing it into something snazzy but never got around to it. Such is the case with a lot of things these days, […]

Some Fall Stitching

As I mentioned before, fall is my favorite season for stitching! I just love all those burnt oranges and olive greens and harvest browns! The perfect palette for stitching! Or a 70’s kitchen! I started working on Autumn Acres Farm by Hands On Design last year but only got as far as stitching the truck […]


Fall Finishes

‘Tis the season for me to pull out several fall projects and hunker down in my big, green, comfy chair for some stitching! Fall is by far my favorite season for stitching so I have a lot of patterns to choose from! This year I decided to do something a little different, however, and pull […]


A Day Late

I didn’t choose my next Stitch Maynia project yesterday as planned but it’s still May so it’s all good! This is Sweet Land of Liberty by Heartstring Samplery. I decided to coffee dye my fabric and I’m pretty darn satisfied with the results! And it couldn’t have been easier! I just stewed my piece of […]


Maynia Continues!

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another Stitch Maynia pick! This week I’m starting the June Word Play from With Thy Needle and Thread! I had all the called for threads in my stash as well as a chunk of 32-count Dirty Linen so I am all set! I just need to carve out […]


It’s Wednesday!

Time for a new Stitch Maynia project! I saw a bunny hop across the street when I was out for my morning walk today so I felt inspired to stitch something with a bunny in it! I found Bunny & Co. from With ThAy Needle & Thread in my stash so I pulled together the […]


Stitch Maynia

My plan for this year’s Stitch Maynia is to start a new project every Wednesday. There’s five in the month so that means five new projects. I haven’t exactly decided which five projects they will be but I have narrowed it down and every Wednesday I will choose something from that stack, kit it up, […]


Saving the Stitches

One of my favorite things to do when Phil and I are in Florida for the winter is to visit the local thrift stores. I always keep an eye out for anything cross stitch related, whether it’s patterns or thread or finished pieces. Today I was digging through a bin full of miscellaneous crafting materials […]
