Slow Stitching on Sunday

I was able to collect my latest finish from Joann's this week....

...Sarah's Carol's Garden by With Thy Needle & Thread. Again Bev and Joyce have made me a happy stitcher. The frame is very shiny and its hard to get good picture. It is lovely olive-y green and I added that little gold filet edge which I think dresses it up.

I didn't get much done on the Barbara Ana Designs "Remember Me", so I didn't take any pictures. Hopefully tonight will have some quality stitching time.

I've been perusing other blogs and stitchers are already plotting their strategy for next year. Several people are doing Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year and I have a couple of Scarlet Letter samplers somewhere in my stash. Of course there are the numerous already started large leftover samplers in my WIP basket and the other day I got caught up in the Little House Needleworks Santa Village SAL. I'm planning on stitching these up on one piece of linen - one looooooonnnngg piece of linen - all 12 houses lined up next to each other. I got notification that my order was mailed from the Strawberry Sampler - thanks Catherine!

And I'm thinking of doing some other Christmas-y stitching. I have the BBD Christmas Garden sampler all kitted and ready to go. And today I saw the BBD Winter Wonderland on Brenda's blog and it is calling my name - LOUDLY! I've already found it and a thread pack online. I think you can tell it is inevitable that it will be coming to my house very soon - LOL! So a Christmas-y theme for 2013 and perhaps a finish of one of my large leftover samplers. That should keep my plenty busy.

So do you have any stitching plans for next year? Now by no means is this plan carved in stone, heck it could change before this evening is over, but I do enjoy entertaining the notion that I have a plan, when in fact I kinda wander from one project to another. (sort of like that run-on sentence) My dear Dad use to say that I bounced around like a BB in a box car - yeah, he knew me - LOL!

Have a great week - happy stitching!

  1. Really pretty finish, Carol! It is sure nice to have reliable folks working on your framing.


  2. Carol's Garden is delightful. I love the way you had it framed.

  3. Carol's Garden looks great!
    So many decisions about next years stitching. I want to finish 2 of my SL UFO's. I have so many other projects that I have lined up too.
    I hope that I can stay focused!

  4. Very nice Carol - I am especially taken with the beading on the interior of the frame - way cool!
    Good luck with your 2013 stitching action plan.

  5. What a sweet piece ~ the frame is perfect!!

  6. You make me want to get out my UFO's and sit and stitch a spell. It has been a very long time,,,but I bet I could remember how to do it.

  7. I'll bet you make Bev and Joyce's day when you bring in your pretty samplers to be framed! I have never heard of Little House Needleworks - I may be in trouble here! I'm making a list! Silent Night is at the top. IS the Santa Village SAL new? I looked for it, but didn't see it.

  8. This is a beautiful piece and the frame is perfect for it!
    No stitching plans for the new year yet...just lots of temptation! Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
