Let me tell you about…. what’s stitchin’ this week

Most of what I stitched on this last couple of weeks I cannot tell you about because it’s the class for Needlework Hideaway called Explorations and it’s a Mystery Project. All anyone can know about is the four colorways offered and the fact that the class teaches many stitches with many different threads! Take a look at Needlework Hideaway!

Another piece I’ve been working on for the last several weeks is a piece I found in A Needle Pulling Thread magazine.  This tatted piece is the first needle tatting I’ve done that isn’t lace or small medallions and was a bunch of fun. I made a mistake that I’m not going to take out and I stopped one round before the end of the pattern but this is the size I need for appliquéing to a pillow for our guest room that is done in all blue and white. This year I plan to complete the decorating in that room. I have rows for a quilt for the bed that were completed in a Row by Row challenge in our Quilt Guild a couple of years ago and that need to be put together, the room needs new drapes and I’m working on a cross stitch sampler all in blue on white for above the bed. I’ll post pictures as I get along with this project and you can keep me on task!

Scrumptous new colors!

Scrumptious new colors!

A box of thread was in the mail today and I couldn’t wait to share the new colors from ThreadworX! Aren’t they lovely? And the color names are just as scrumptious as the colors! These are Camel Hair, Creme de Menthe,  Cayenne Pepper and Indian Turquoise.  Don’t they make you just itch to stitch? We have several new ThreadworX  TOMC collectors and with these kinds of threads who can blame them? See for yourself here.

Let me know what you’re working on, I love hearing about all the wonderful projects out there!

Until next time, keep stitchin’
