A Little Pin Money......(167)

Greetings all! We finally had the championship baseball game last night for our grandson, and though our 'boys of summer' fought hard, they lost the game in the end. We are proud of their season and spent many enjoyable evenings/Saturdays watching them. Go Yankees!!! ( I can't believe I just said that as we are Orioles fans and the Yanks are our biggest rivals) :)

On to stitching....the Stroll piece for today is Pin Money by Summer House Stitche Workes. I did this in 2015 and it was a small kit that included the wooden nickel.  

I finished week 8 of the Blue Band Sampler SAL last night. I won't be showing the whole thing now, until it's done, since it's on the scroll frame. Week 9 came this morning, so I'll be hopping on that soon.

I'm starting to think I'm a little over committed this summer with this SAL, two Christmas stockings and I am doing a  SAL with two friends of the Elegant Stitch/Hands on Design collaboration box and smalls. But, on the other hand, a Richmond summer is upon us, with all its heat and humidity, so I'll probably be spending lots of time home in the A/C! :)

I'm going to end today with photos of my grand kids on their last day of school. They have both grown so much this year! Here's to a fun filled summer!

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



  1. Your grandkids are adorable, Stasi. Your Pin Money piece is sweet. You have some nice projects to help you get through the hot and humid summer.

  2. I agree Pin Money is sweet and so are your grandchildren. :D
    I will be stitching the summer away also as I can't do the sun or heat!

  3. Stasi, your grandchildren are just adorable! Great photos. Love your stitches too. Have a great weekend. RJ @stitching friends forever

  4. Grandson and granddaughter are adorable!

    Pin money is a sweet design. Your blue band sampler is so pretty! I'm getting more and more tempted....

  5. Beautiful grandkids...obviously take after their grandmother...LOL... love the pin money piece. If your temps are like our temps in OHio and I think they are inside with the AC is the only place to be...happy stitching!

  6. Boy, does he look happy to be done with third grade. They are cuties.
