My Stitching Collection (1-7)

Almost a week into 2017 and I remembered something I'd been swishing around in my head for a while. I had the idea to start posting a project a day---- some finished, some UFO's---- and see how far into a year I could get. Sadly, it was languishing in the nether regions of my brain, but when I saw Syd from Syd's Stitching Room post a photo a day, it nudged the thought back to the forefront. Thanks Syd!!!!  So I am going to attempt this starting with smalls (since all my framed pieces are still packed). If it's a set, I'll do one piece of the set/series a day. Some days I may miss and I'll bunch a few together like I'm going to do today to catch up. So here goes.....days 1-7; there will be no rhyme or reason in how I post these....just whatever suits my fancy. P.S. I may not remember all the info on the projects but I'll do my best!

1. Under the Deep Blue Sea by Sue Hillis
2. Pocket Band
3. Needlebook
4. Scissor Pocket
5. Pincushion
6. Thread Keeper
7. Needlepoint Dolphin by Annie's Shells

So with that accomplished here's what I've been working on currently. First up is the piece for the January challenge on All About Smalls. I'm close to being finished with the stitching.

Then in between the tiny work I did some more on the Beekeeper's Cottage Etui.

The green and red is helping keep Christmas in my mind!!! LOL

The house is de-"Christmased" and looking rather naked. Time to get my butt in gear, paint and hang pictures! I need to get that done in order to finish up my sewing room, as that's where all the boxes are being stored. My Christmas gift from hubby is a cutting table, but it's on hold since there's no place to put it right now.

So, in conclusion......thanks to all my friends who I asked to send me some of their worked!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship! 




  1. Love your snow picture, Stasi! It looks like you got around 4-6 inches which is more than me. Your pictures 1-7 are darling. Enjoy your snowy day!

  2. What great stitching Stasi. Great progress on the teensie tiny scissors. ;) Are you painting light colors or dark?

  3. Under the Sea is a beautiful project.
    Congrats on your finish.

  4. This is going to be so fun. You and I have similar tastes so I'm pretty sure I'm going to be enabled. Tee hee! Love the mermaid and of course, the teeny tiny scissors. YGG!
