Sweetheart Sampler Stocking
Sweetheart Sampler Stocking
BBD
30ct St. Valentine’s Blend by R&R
GAST Cherry Bark
Finished 7/30/10

Look, another finish! After finishing Margaret Pence, I decided to pick this little stocking back up that I had started right after Romeo died. It made me feel really good to have a quick little finish on this. And since Romeo was my little sweetheart, this stocking will for sure remind me of him. I only have one more of the February stockings to stitch. You may remember I stitched February’s Violets in remembrance of my grandmother’s birthday last year. So, I may decide to just go ahead and start that other stocking here soon. They are such fun little stitches, and so colorful. I love this St. Valentine’s fabric, it has the slightest pink hue to it that really looks so pretty with the Cherry Bark thread.

After finishing up the stocking on Friday night, I decided to pick my Anniversaries of the Heart piece back up. This piece is giving me such fits. I had issues starting and then set it aside, then I decided to pick it back up, stitched on it all weekend (got farther than this photo shows) and then spent all night last night ripping out everything I’d stitched since Friday. Bummer. There was no way to fudge it since my mistake was in the bottom border, which has to line up since I’m stitching these all together on one piece of fabric. I really wish I could get a better photo of this, but like I said, this piece is giving me trouble.

And I had thought I would start my new piece this weekend, I pulled together my fabric and threads. I’m missing a few threads, which I didn’t think was a big deal, but when I sat down to stitch, they were the two threads I really needed to start. Nice. So, no new start this weekend. But, here’s a little sneak peek. I’m missing a blue, a couple of greens and another gold.

So, other than my finish, stitching was kind of a bust this weekend. Oh well, maybe I can find a new groove this week.

Until next time, happy stitching!

I am grateful for my sweetheart.

    Michelle, the little stocking is really nice, I love it.

    I had to laugh about wanting to start a new project even though not all the thread where there to only find out you needed them to start. Why does this happen!!!??? It seems my friends have this trouble as well as myself.

    Have a good week —- Roberta

  3. Bummer on the frogging! And on the lack of threads! Tell us what you’re missing–it might be hanging out in my stash!

  7. All looks good–I enjoyed reading your post about Romeo; very touching. This is a wonderful remembrance of him!

    Snow Garden is my favorite of the Anniversaries. 😀

  9. I am having the same issues with my blackbird piece too! I keep thinking that I can’t work on it because I can’t see color variations…it’s all just 30 shades of neutral.

  11. Sweet little stocking finish – the scissor looks great with it too. I have not tackled AofH – maybe next year. Sigh, so much to stitch, so little time, & so slow!!

    Love the colors on your next project – what fabric are you using? Or is it listed below the pic and I was not paying attention…?

  21. Those threads for the new piece look very promising. I love the colours and yes, you made me curious to see what the new project will be.

    I just love these little BBD stockings. They are also on my stitching schedule for … lol.

  23. Michelle, I adore all of the stockings by BBD! Love the color you chose on that one.

    Oh, I’ve been there done that. If a project calls for a hundred colors and I’m missing ONE, you can bet I will need that ONE to start with! If you want to Email, I can check if I have the ones you are missing and just pop them in the mail to ya!

  25. The stocking is gorgeous Michelle. I have this chart but have yet to stitch one for myself!

    Sorry about the frogging. I seem to have been doing a lot of that lately but never mind. Looking forward to seeing your progress on the Anniversaries of the Heart. Can’t wait to see your new WIP.
