So, my hubby and I heard an unexplained noise the other night while stitching/watching the boob tube, went to investigate and found nothing. Chalked it up to "hearing" things while distracted by the TV show we were watching. Lo and behold, I visited my sewing room yesterday and found this:
I just need to finish up some nun stitch on the scissor minder and put it all together--set complete. Will share when finished!
My IKEA shelf unit had "separated" under the weight of my stitching books!!! Oh-No
(as Mr. Bill might say)!!!!! Hopefully we can fix it with a major gluing, but now I feel I have to consider if I should get rid of some of the books---not something I want to think about as I have a really nice collection. But, do I really need them all? How many stitch diagram books do I need? Will I ever stitch anything from the annual Vanessa Ann books I've been holding on to for years? I know .....need vs want/covet!!! Guess I've got some pondering to do!!!!
On to some stitching news! I did find some thin black velvet ribbon and encased the edges of my Alphabet Primer Pocket. I like it so much better now that I can't see the linen showing through the black joining stitches.
I also managed to get an accompanying small stitched and finished to go with the pocket and another small stitched. Here they are:
|Village Scene Needlcase|
|Inside with needle pages|
|All tied up with ribbon and a bow|
|Village Scene Scisssor Minder and Sheath|
I have started on a stocking for my new granddaughter, Anna's Stocking by Shepherds Bush. I think I'll be doing Oliver's Stocking for the grandson. I'm not sure they will be here by Christmas but want to be prepared in case they are. I want them to feel part of the family from the get go!!!
Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
