Finally stretched and framed Mystery 9 (aka The King’s Vegetable Garden) by Chatelaine Designs!! Eric built the frame for me and I painted it a blue that matched one of the blue threads. And now it’s hanging on my gallery wall.



Anniversaries of the Heart by Blackbird Designs – finished Moonlight Visitor (block 9). I made some color changes in this block – used CC Bean Sprout for GA Endive, CC Steamed Broccoli for GA Piney Woods, used the DMCs for Almost Auburn and Tufted Yellow, added Weeks Iris and CC Cinnamon Toast, and Weeks Read Pear for GA Woodrose. I wanted the tree to be a bit greener and the butterfly to be a bit more purple. Dedicated to my grandmother and to Reverend Kay. I’m stitching these all on one piece of 40ct Vintage Examplar by Lakeside.


Started on block 10 – Pumpkin Farm.

Working on WIPs for High Tea hosted by Caroline from Off the Grid Needlearts each month – picking a focus WIP for each month.

Project Bag Roulette – added my project bags into the Tiny Decisions app and then I can spin the wheel and pick a project in that bag to work on for a week.

Primitive Hare Sabbat SAL – there are eight freebie designs and I would like to stitch all of them. I’m contemplating starting Yule today for Yule and the Winter Solstice.
