A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
Gosh, this makes post titles a doddle, doesn't it?
The DUCJC is being held this year in memory of SoCal Debbie and I am attempting to stitch on 31 different projects throughout January. A mixture of WIPs and new starts.
Day 15 - Just Nan - Haunted Pumpkins Tree:
Stitched on 28 count Chocolate Orange evenweave from Crafty Kitten
I stitched the two pumpkins on the bottom left.
Day 16 - Joan Elliott - Believe:
Stitched on 28 count opal evenweave Robin's Egg by Silkweaver Fabrics
I really didn't want to put this one down and continued into the evening when I usually read blogs
Day 17 - Primitive Hare - Hallowe'en Cubes:
Stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen.
Giovanna will be SAL with me on this one.
One cube per month until Hallowe'en.
I emailed Isabella to ask for this chart plus two thread winders for Christmas. Due to a misunderstanding she sent me the Christmas Cubes instead. So what's a girl to do? I decided to keep those too, pay for them and ask her to send the Hallowe'en Cubes in addition. As a little "sorry" she invited me to choose one more chart of my choice! I loved the design Gracie had stitched for the Christmas competition so chose "Dear Santa, define Good".
My previous post was the link-up for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL. I have now visited and commented on every blog who linked up so far. The link-up will stay there so please feel free to join in any time this month. There has been some great stitching going on, lots of lovely gifted charts and fabrics plus a good few shoehorns too!
Finally, I will be running the Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop on Valentine's Day.
Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop
It's really very simple, all you have to do is email me a picture of something you have stitched which is suitable for a stitching friend on Valentine's Day. It could be a heart, or a pair of cute creatures, or the word "love" or anything which warms your heart. Really anything you think a fellow stitcher would like to receive in her email Inbox. It can be something you've stitched in the past or something you've made especially for this year. It could also be quilted or sewn this year as I know some of my followers do other crafts too.
Send me the email by 10th February.
When I have all the emails I will randomise them and send one to each participant on 13th February. Then on 14th February you must post the picture you receive onto your blog under the heading
Secret Stitching Sweetheart.
There will be a list on my blog of everyone joining in, so check out all the blogs and find out who got your picture and identify yourself in their comments as their
Secret Stitching Sweetheart.
Does that make sense to everyone? I hope so!
If you'd like to be involved then leave a comment on this post, I'll be putting little reminders up from time to time and will email on 9th February to make sure you send the pic in time.
