GOOD MORNING.....


It's already Wednesday and I haven't done one stitchey thing this week. 


I swear, I stitched this little design from Primitive Hare, just to hold up in the evening.  Seems my DH always wants conversation when I'm stitching...LOL!!   It is on 28 count evenweave, but it was from Joann's and it is the most uneven fabric I've ever used (MRJ Textiles)!  That's why this one is not framed...it's crooked in the frame and looks terrible!  So I just have it clipped to the top of my ruler....

These are my new scroll frames from Rola Frame.  I love them!  I usually use a hoop, but I heard so many good things about these frames, I decided to purchase one.  Now I have six sets...they are light weight and fit nicely into my Lowery floor stand.



I seemed to have gathered quite a collection of hand dyed floss.  I love the colors but some of them I can barely see any variegation...so .....I'm not sure the extra money is worth spending, when DMC has so many beautiful colors...


I finished this SAL in March, by Country Cottage Needleworks, but have yet to find a suitable way to finish it.  I'm not going to frame it, it will more than likely be a flat-fold finish with some wintery type fabric bordering it. It was a fun stitch...but of course, I always end up one stitch or row being off....UGH!


Well...that's it....it's good to be home from our vacation.  The early part of the week has been filled with Dr.'s appointments for my mom, including today..then tomorrow I start my hooking workshop...I haven't pulled one single piece of wool to color plan yet...guess I'll be super busy this evening!  Have a great day!

  2. Hi Bobbie,
    Like you I have been an absent blogger and life was just so busy I needed some time away, but now I am so ready to get back!! Love your stitched pieces and those scrolls look like they are super helpful!! I keep saying, "one of these days I will get back to cross stitch" and so far, I just keep saying it but nothing happens!! hahaha
    It's so nice to know that I can always start......one of these days!!!!
