Saturday Stitching

First things first, the winner of this chart is....

Barbara! Thanks for your comment Barbara. Please send your snail mail address to me at agrimm55@hotmail.com. I will get it in the mail next week.

I had one more finish this week. This is my oldest WIP. And I sneaked it in just as April was ending.


I am going to be honest and let you know that I cut this project short. I did not do all the sheep and grass and I left off the bottom border.  I felt it looked good as it was and frankly I was just tired of stitching this one. Now I have May and Oh Say Can You Sea to finish next week.

I also got a good bit done on my start. Where Liberty Dwells by Brenda Gervais.


I am using colors from my stash but I am staying in the same color range.

I stopped in at the Cross Stitch Peddler and Marlene was preparing a project for the Wednesday Stitching Class that meets there every week.


This is Riley's Harbor by Kathy Barrick.  The class  is stitching  it on Veldt and Marlene changed up some of the flosses. I had no interest in stitching this until I saw it on her project table. Well of course I asked her to kit one up for me as well.  It will be a while before the fabric comes in so I have time to purchase the flosses and the chart.  That is why LNS stores can test your will power ladies. When you see the pretty fabric and the flosses, all self control flees!!


Girls I am estimating that I will have to live to be at least 500 to finish all my charts!!

Happy Stitching!

I love that quote. We will have long lives for sure:) I like that whale one...kinda looks New England and Early American at the same time. I think it would be cute displayed all the time in the right room and certainly during summer months. I am plugging away. I don't think I will ever start so many at the same time. IT just drives me a little batty.

I know what you mean! Every time I get interested in something, I start buying supplies! I bought a set of sketching pencils yesterday! Think that will help my art? heehee! Love those little sheep! Hugs!

Congratulations on your May finish! I look forward to seeing it in finished form. You are making good progress on the patriotic stitch, Arlene. That quote is so true. Enjoy your weekend!

I always enjoy seeing your projects!

Congrats to the winner! Woot woot!

Lovely May finish. Those PS monthly designs are adorable. Lovely start on the Germans design as well.

I have made several unexpected purchases based on seeing models at an LNS. It’s probably a good thing I don’t have one. When we visit Oregon and I get to visit Starlight Stitchery, I plan for many unexpected purchases!

And now you know my secret to living forever...

Congrats of Barbara!! Oh, your May PS finish is perfect, I never would have know there was more to the pattern if you didn't say.

It's a good thing that I don't have an LNS nearby, I would be in a heap of trouble!!

Arlene, the comments from RJ this morning were really from me, I didn't realize I was still signed in under her name!!! Sorry RJ!!!

You and me both, Arlene - except my "hobby" is mostly paper crafting. I'm sorry to have missed your giveaway. Congratulations to Barbara! I am hosting a Mother's Day giveaway today! Hope to see you there! xo

Love your May PS piece, Arlene! I still need to stitch this month (along with about seven or eight others!!). And your new project is very cute. I have never seen the Riley's Harbor design, but I love it! Can't wait to watch you stitch it :)

I have no LNS and am SO envious of those of you who do--imagine having to order every skein of fancy floss online... It gets expensive with the shipping costs!
