A Summer Pixie.....(195)

Today's stroll piece is from Bent Creek, stitched in 1998. There were a series of four seasonal charts called A Pixie for all Seasons....this is the summer one. There was an actual "pixie' design and a "saying"; I did the sayings only and change them out every season.

I got a little more done on the Schoolhouse piece, but not much. I am substituting fibers and started to do the roof in a dark brown, similar to DMC 3371, but it was too dark. So, I had to take out about 4 rows of the over one...yea I know...not easy....and switched to a grey. I like it much better!

I'm hoping to get some errands run this morning and then sit all afternoon with my foot propped up and ice on it. I had a little mishap a week ago but didn't think much of it. It didn't really hurt, just a little tender to the touch.  But as the week progressed (and I didn't stay off it) the top of my foot has become totally bruised! So, me thinks it's time for a little "babying"......any excuse to sit and stitch you know!!! :)

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Oh Stasi, your foot sounds sore, what happened in the little mishap?! Somehow my mishaps seem to always involve a toe and a table leg :( stitching and ice are called for this entire weekend, except for fetching yourself the occasional refreshment lol. Seriously though, do take it easy ♥️
    Your pixie seasonal, and the frame with your change out idea...brilliant! The whole piece is so fun!
    Your Schoolhouse progress is perfect, can't wait to see more :)
    Have a good weekend...sending hugs for your booboo

  2. House construction is looking good, Stasi. I am sorry though that you had to frog out the roof. I really like today's stroll piece. I don't remember that series though so off to look and see if I can find it. Sorry to read of your foot mishap; I hope it is on the mend soon. Have a relaxing weekend with your foot up!

  3. I hope icing and relaxing works to fix your foot Stasi.
    Did you see this?

  4. Changing out the Bent Creek seasonal piece is such a great idea.
    Frogging out over one takes twice the time to stitch it but the new color looks great.
    Hope your foot is much better and a little loving tender care and rest takes care of it. Happy Stitching! Mary&RJ
