Weekend stitching

I managed to stitch quite a bit over the weekend. Especially Saturday. I worked on Blessings and Kind Wishes. I completed the house and most of one of the birds.

On Sunday, I worked on This is the Day. I stitched the background of the alphabet until I ran out of WDW Conch. Then I worked on the sun. I need to place an order today for some more threads for this. I love this piece but it is a thread eater. :)

I am re-thinking what I am going to put in my Friday slot. I started Bayside Bungalows this week, but I didn't get very far on it. I am thinking that instead of stitching a new piece on Fridays that I might pull out one of my many WIPs and work on that instead. One of my goals this year is to whittle down that wip pile, and it isn't going to get smaller if I keep starting new pieces. So I am debating... I could save Bayside Bungalows to stitch on the way to and from Florida in a couple of weeks. I think I will go through my WIP pile this week and see if anything beckons me. :) (I did not start Red House Sampler, btw.

Thanks for the well wishes. They must have worked. Whatever I felt like I was coming down with never materialized (at least not yet).

Working on June Morning today... pictures to follow later in the week.

Happy stitching,



  1. You got a lot of stitching done this weekend. I love the fabric you're using for This is the Day.

  2. Ooooh, you've done a lot! Lucky you. I am going to start This is the Day too, but it'll probably be a couple of weeks before that happens as I just ordered the floss. I'll be doing it on 32 count, and ordered 2 of each of the conch, tomato, and picnic basket. Think that's enough?

  3. YGG--you got a lot done! Your Blessings looks wonderful--you've made a lot of progress with it. Love the This Is The Day, too! That piece of fabric is to, ummm, pardon the pun, dye for! ;) Can't wait to see your June Morning! I'm glad you're feeling better, too. :)

  4. Both projects are going to be just beautiful! Great job!

  5. Both of you wips are beautiful Kellie! I too love the fabric you are using for "The is the Day."

  6. So glad you're feeling better!

    Beautiful progress on your wips!!
    Love your design choices!
