Saturday Stitching

I have had a productive stitching week....


I finished my February Hands on Design.


It has a new home in the dough bowl.

I moved a few things around....I hung Baby Its Cold Outside on the wall so Winter and February are now the Breakfast Bar stars.


This is my garbage can cabinet but the top houses Nana's Snack Bowl. Don't all Nana's have treats out for their grands? I also added Jolly Happy Soul to the kitchen decor.


I think he is the perfect addition to this corner of the kitchen.


We were talking about Victoria earlier in the week so I thought I would share God Save the Queen. I did not take it completely out of the q snaps. ( I am lazy that way!)  I am closing in on an ending. It is supposed to have a picture of Albert on the right side but it was rather creepy looking so I am going to put 63 in its place. Victoria was on the throne for 63 years...amazing for that time period and all of the children she bore. Maybe we should all gobble our food!( I wish)



Just finished this quilt flag that was stitched from the Hands on Design Knee High by the Fourth of July.  Now to fully finish it.

I did pick up two pieces of stash..


I am purchasing all the Prairie Schoolers that I do not have. I am thinking of doing this one for the grands for Christmas 2019.


I saw this stitched and decided that I would  stitch it into a drum. Now that I have one drum finish under my belt I know what to do and what NOT to do which might just be more important.

Off to stitch with the North Alabama Stitchers today....so it is a good Saturday in my book.

All look wonderful to me. I really love your bowl and I think the 63 will be perfect on the Victoria piece.

Enjoyed seeing all your stitched pieces, Arlene! That Hands On Design chart pack (the monthly celebrations) is a popular stitch around the stitching world. I hope you have a fabulous stitching outing the North Alabama Stitchers today.

All of your projects are beautiful and I can't wait to see the finished on Queen Victoria! We are watching the show on PBS and just love it. Your dough bowl looks great for February!!

You did have a wonderful stitch-filled week, Arlene! Your little Hands On Design finish is darling and looks perfect in your dough bowl. And you know I absolutely love those PS finishes :) Seeing your Frosty is pushing me to get my chart out and get started--I love it on that darker fabric. Hope you are enjoying your weekend ♥

Such sweet &heart; stitching! And I LOVE your garbage can cabinet. May I ask where you bought it?! - I know I'm weird! xo

Love the picture of your cabin! The table setting is lovely. What fun for all your book club mates to be presented with a pretty table setting for them like that. I was touched with your picture of you and me. I'm going to download it. Cute of your grands. Makes me smile to see them.

Cute February cross stitchings! My favorite detective is Miss Marple, but I like Poirot too. We saw Agatha Christie's play, The Mouse Trap, in London over 20 years ago. At that time it had been running for over 30 years, the longest play ever. I don't know if it is still showing.

Thank you for sharing your stitching with us! I was given a dough bowl for Christmas. I plan to decorate it with small cross stitching as you have done. Love your Valentines!
