Alphabet Heart and A little Strolling.......447-448

 Greetings all! I hope you are all surviving this crazy up and down weather and staying healthy. I know the flu and a stomach virus are making the rounds and I am doing my best to fight them off with lots of hand washing, essential oils and crowd least as much as I can. 

I'm starting off with a couple Stroll pieces today, a Shepherd's Bush Fold kit from 2001, February and, to make Cute as a Button (2018) by Needle Bling Designs official, I'm reposting it.

I had been working on my Celtic Banner .....

.....when the Valentine's Day bug hit me and I remembered a DMC freebie I had printed out awhile ago..... wonder of wonders, I was able to put my hands on it.  The red fabrics I bought last weekend were also calling out to me, so an idea started brewing and this is what I have so far. I'm using GAST Oatmeal over one on a 32 count Victorian Red linen.

Here is the link to the free chart:   DMC Alphabet Heart

Did you notice the adorable pouch? My friend, Debbie, gifted that to me last weekend and it is perfect to hold this little project --thanks Deb!

It's going to be a rainy day here so stitching is on the schedule. Hope you are warm, dry and healthy wherever you are! Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Lovely stroll pieces, Stasi! You have made good progress on the Celtic Banner and a good start on the DMC heart. Thanks for sharing the link!

  2. Your SB February piece is so pretty, and that little valentine pillow is just adorable - what a cute finish.

    Great progress on Celtic Banner, and the little alphabet heart is looking fantastic on that wonderful red fabric.

  3. Stasi, I love anything by Shepherd Bush and yours is so pretty. Your banner is coming along the style of those letters. The red linen is so pretty and I think oatmeal is the perfect thread color to go on the red you selected. Great little bag from Deb. RJ

  4. SB February is sooo cute!! Your new start is lookin' great!

  5. Your February stitching is so cute, Stasi! I think this is the first year in a long time that I didn't stitch something for Valentine's Day... Oh well!

    Love that red fabric and I saw your latest finish in IG this morning. It turned out great... Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow ♥♥♥

  6. You have been busy Stasi!! Sweet cute as a button stitch!! I will have to remember that one! Great progress on your Celtic Banner and the SB stitch is lovely. I want to stitch more of the SB patterns as I like that they incorporate other stitches.
