Saturday Stitching

 Well another week of not a lot of stitching....I am blaming it on Christmas and going to Grimmwood.  My stitchy bug has not been very strong this week. 

I thought I would share a picture of the storage bin I mentioned last week. 


It is not very big and it keeps me from becoming a true hoarder of charts.

My sweet friend, Meg, sent me a package this week with some lovely charts. 


And she sent me this lovely ornament. 


I am blessed with so many sweet friends in our stitching community. 

I did stitch a bit on my January Word play and I finished the dress on the bunny lady. Now to do the grass and  I should have it ready for Deborah before Spring arrives. 


Speaking of the new year....

I have two main projects I am starting in January. Winter Rose Manor by Brenda Gervais. I received my fabric from Inspired Needle. Cathy sent me a nice piece of Vintage Country Mocha fabric, so now to get my flosses. I am going to be using DMC as the fancy flosses are so hard to find because I truly believe almost every stitcher in America is stitching this design.  I am also kitting up Mychal's Prayer as part of Georgia's Stitch Along.  Meg sent me Waxing Moon's Winter Houses so one of those will be a January Start as well. Thanks Meg, those were on my Wish List!! 

I am hoping to return to North Alabama Stitching Days in 2021. I really hope that once the covid vaccine is available to us oldsters, we can return to some of our normal routines. 

This is my last post at Nanaland until January 1st. So Merry Christmas to all my blog friends. See you in 2021.

What a lovely ornament and package of charts that Meg sent your way, Arlene! Looking forward to seeing your starts on the big projects come the new year. I need to pull Mychal's Prayer so I can start kitting it up; thank you for the reminder. Wishing you and yours a joy-filled holiday. Merry Christmas!

P.S. I started Counted Cross Stitch in the 70's...did huge huge works of doll houses for my daughter, school mascots for son...etc...I quit when I returned to college in 1992 and taught and worked on degrees until 2013...then subbed...am back to CCS and crocheting...however, you are a true artist...you amaze me...I told a friend of mine who has started again...I never had your talent. amazing...

Thank you Brenda... I am good at stitching but my finishing needs some work! I hope I improve in that area as I continue trying! Practice makes perfect! I hope anyway.:)

Such nice charts and a lovely ornament from sweet Meg! Your big blue bunny piece is growing nicely. I remember that dress taking forever :) But, you are on the home stretch now.

Enjoy your blog break and I truly hope you get to see at least some of your family over the Christmas holiday. Merry Christmas! ♥

Oh, yay! I’m glad I picked Winter Houses to send you. It just said to me, “I need to go to Arlene.” Glad I listened!

For me I think 2021 will be the year of stitching Christmas. I’m working on a stocking for Thomas and should have it done in January. Then maybe ornaments, ornaments, ornaments.

Merry Christmas!
