S is for Sassy Jack's

 The other place that I like to purchase my needlework supplies is Sassy Jack's

Kim Young is a wonderful person and  stocks her shop with all sorts of interesting things.  She is currently offering a free  sampler download. To get all the information, watch this video from last week:


This was a fascinating show showing some of Kim's collection of samplers.  

I have purchased a "few" things from Kim. I'll share the latest in a few days.

R is for Royal Garden

 I must admit that I love this piece. If I didn't have other projects that need some love, I would stitch on this until completion.

P and Q And Why I Didn't Post Yesterday

 First, I was able to schedule myself for my first shot in the vaccine. I think I made a mistake as I first donated platelets:


 (Full disclosure-this is an old photo of me donating, but not much is different....)

That made me very tired so after donating platelets, running errands, and getting the vaccine, I took a nap. Then went to bed early. So that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.

P is not for platelets, although it could be....it is for PURPLE!


I must admit that I love this color. And this project, which is Royal Garden.

Q is for question.  I have one for you. Should I start Purrfect Christmas Santa 

or Kitty Stalks?

I need a new Mill Hill project.

O is for Organized

 Which I am not. This is sad. I really should start getting organized, but I have no clue how to start. Every now and then I think I should hire someone to help me. But it is so embarrassing...

Here is what I wish my craft room looked like:

 Dream on, right. Especially since my craft area is in the basement!  Here is the full tour:

N is for Needle in A Haystack

 I tend to shop online as we have no local needlework shop. I have purchased from Cathe Ray for years and I do like her website. If you need unusual threads, contact her. She probably has it.

My latest from her was Springhill by Rosewood Manor. I love the colors on this!

M is for Gifted Gorgeousness (!?)

 Well first off, today is the day we are supposed to post photos of stitching that has to do with gifts. If you want to full scoop, head over to Jo at  Serendipitous Stitching and she will fill you in on this fun SAL.

This piece seems to have moved permanently to my basement. It is a shame, as it is lovely and I so want to finish it and hang it on the wall. If I would just stop starting pieces and taking classes....



I'm so mad at this piece, I don't even have a current photo! That may mean it needs to move upstairs and get stitched!

L is for Lavender

 I have this piece sitting on my iron board. It stares at me while I exercise. I think it will move from the basement to my stitching space as it is screaming to get done!
