Stitching Saturday

Well Santa came with some Stitchy Goodness for me.

My sisters always check out my 123 Stitch Wish List.

Now I need to go and update my list again! I am really looking forward to stitching Red Bird along with some Spring things. Because for me, once Chtistmas is over,  I am ready for spring. If  I cannot have it outside, I will just stitch up some spring.

I did purchase a few things from Kitten Stitcher.

I purchased this new Plum Street chart because...HOUSES!

Kitten Stitcher is also doing a fund raiser for her local animal shelter. I purchased these two charts donated by other stitchers to raise money for this charity.

I love this Lizzie Kate Seasons leaflet.

I could not resist this cute chart. I was not familiar with his designer but her design just called out to me.

I won a  pass the stash give away at Key X Stitch on Floss Tube. She is one of my favorite floss tubers.

I can't resist Prairie Schooler.

As it is the end of the year, I got out my stitching journal to see how many pieces I had completed this year. The Total was 41!  Some were small and some were gifts so I did not keep all of them.  I do have some Works in Progress that are going with me into 2019.

                   Molly Pitcher...Little House Needleworks Patriots
                   My Christmas List by Silver Creek Samplery
                   Christmas Quaker Bygone Stitches
                    Jolly Happy Soul by With Thy Needle and Thread
                   Bleu Skin by Plum Street Samplers
                   February  Hands on Designs

As you are reading this I will be gathering all my stitching supplies together to join the North Alabama Stitchers at the Decatur Public Library. We are supposed to bring some of our recent finishes to share. I think I am going to take, I Heard the Bells by Hands on Design. It was my first pillow to use crushed walnut shells and I love how it turned out.  I look forward to seeing all the projects completed by my stitching friends.  And I will be looking forward to January 11th when I get to attend my first Stitching Retreat.  Here's to 2019!

Love your stitching and blog!
Am slowly getting back to ccs. Did five ornaments this year and have nine ready for next year. Going to do a couple of small pictures soon and look for some others.

You are going to be a busy lady!

That stitching retreat is going to be on my future agenda. Tucker is taking up the slot this year and that is okay with me. I can't wait to hear what you learn and do at. It is fun hearing how other people approach things. Stitching stash looks good. I have quite a few large carry overs to 2019. I have worked on two the past couple of days and realized I wanted them done, so only one small on the horizon until they are done.

You have so many wonderful patterns to work on in the year ahead. And how neat to go to a stitchers event! I'm so ready to get back to stitching. It's so relaxing!

What fabulous new stitch stuff you have received and acquired, Arlene! I hope you have an enjoyable outing with the North Alabama Stitchers today. You will have a blast at your retreat on the 11th.

Arlene, you have made so many beautiful ornaments, pillows, and framed pieces. I probably forgot other things you've made but I do remember each one is simply beautiful!
