Fingers worked to the bone!


The Mother flew through this Skull Banner in a matter of days! Stitched on Under the Sea fabric's Hecate.

Now where did I put mine...

Happy 4th of July!


I wanted to finish Red, White & Blue for the 4th, but alas... 
This Cricket said No!

Feeling Patriotic

I took a break from sisters birth sampler to sneak in some stars and stripes stitching! The Maiden

Just monkeying around!

Making some progress on  sister's monkey birth sampler!
I am trying a new way of stitching with varigated threads where you outline the area to be stitched and then work from the outline in towards the center. So far I love it, and it prevents lines of color appearing unnaturally in your stitching. Who wants a stripped monkey? The Maiden

Still headless..


I figured I better post some progress pictures before I  finish! The Mother was right, the retreat was so inspiring!

Get Kraken!

I was not the only  one to join Maynia at the last hour! The Mother has started Get Kraken by Ink Circles, stitched on 28ct Rhiannon by Stepanie.
While we were in Texas she kitted up this gem with a cotton floss conversion using Weeks Dye Works threads.

Surprise, I'm going to be an auntie!


After much deliberation my sister has chosen the Tree Top Birth Sampler for her nursery by Tempting Tangles Designs. As she is 12 weeks along, I need to get cracking!
I wanted to join stitch Maynia this year, but with the retreat and all my sewing I missed the boat! I did manage one new start though! The Maiden #Maynia
