Very nice Stitching Blog

I’ve found a nice BOM on Val laird’s site.  It’s called “What Is Love” and there are 6 blocks available to download.

I hope this works.  I’m still finding my way around this blog thing.  If clicking on the link doesn’t work, please copy and paste it to your search engine.

Cheers – Shari

A new SAL

It’s been a while since I posted.  I’m still trying to get the hang of this.

I found a new SAL blog to follow.  It belongs to Dorothy Baker from Ontario, Canada.  The link is below – as you can tell, I haven’t figured out how to make a Tiny yet either.  I hope it works.

It’s called Sweet Nostalgia BOM

Sweet Nostalgia B.O.M.

I really need to figure out this blogging thing.  Hopefully, you can locate Sweet Nostalgia from the above info.  She’s also doing a fabulous giveaway if you leave a comment and can link to her blog.  No doubt you will have better luck linking than I had.

Happy Sttiching.

Tozz’s Corner

This is a new blog I’m following.  She has a really cute BOM of both applique and embroidery combined that is free for the month posted.  After that time, you can purchase missed blocks at her Etsy store.

Take It Further January

January is long gone and my stitching is finished.

TIF January I have decided to switch to CQ blocks, so, as usual, I’m way behind. I hope to have something to post for February soon, as well as a new January block.

Happy Stitching

Take It Further Challenge Jan 7, 2008

The new Year is a week old and I have been trying to decide how to interpret the concept of admiration. I’m drawing a blank!! So, I have decided, this month to work with the color palette instead. As a quilter, this is NOT a palette I would pick – although it might look much better in prints rather than plain fabrics.

I will be working on 32 count Belfast linen in antique ivory. I am stitching a linen book, with a stitched cover, spine and pages. This month, I am stitching a bargello design, with 6 strands of DMC cotton floss. I may decide to throw in some extra elements as well, We’ll see.

This is my work so far on page one.WIP - Jan 7, 2008

The brown stitching line is my backstitched outline around the current page and, what will become page 12 when it’s all put together. I am currently obsessed with these stitched books in all sizes. They seem to me to be the ideal thing to use for projects like this challenge and for samplers etc. The pages will be whip stitched together, once completed and mat board will be inserted inside each page.

TIF Cover in progress

The above photo is the front and back cover, in progress as well. The scan makes it look crooked, buy it’s really not. The thread is DMC Cordonette crochet cotton, that I hand dyed several years ago. It’s approximately 12 weight.

Happy Stitching, everyone.

My Stitchin’ Addictions

Hello World

I’m trying to catch on to this blogging thing that everyone else is so darned good at. Heaven knows how it will turn out.

This is my space for babbling about all kinds of stitching. I have no urge to quilt at the moment – except for running the longarm machine. I find myself becoming very passionate about various forms of hand embroidery, machine embroidery and needle felting – both hand and machine. What I desperately need is more time to play with these machines, fabrics, fibers, threads etc.

I have recently gone back to cross stitch and am thoroughly enjoying it with a group of internet friends. We plan to do some unusual sampler projects in the near future.

I also am enjoying knitting socks for my self – and the odd project for my new granddaughter.

So, as long as I can remember how to operate this WordPress blog thing, I will try to post regularly.
