Flying Needles and Other Ramblings

My needles have developed a mind of their own lately. Sometimes they jump out of my hand and land across the room someplace or slide down between the cushion and arm of the recliner never to be seen again. Tonight's needle was threaded and sitting in my piece. I went to get some coffee and that needle had flown away. I know my DH who never wears shoes in the house will find it and not be too happy.
Tonight was Peppermint Twist night and I made some progress, but not as much as I hoped because I was watching a good movie with Jack Nicholson. I always think I'll accomplish more than I do.





Monday night was Of Female Arts night and I made pretty good progress. It's slow going for me on 40 ct. I've almost made it all the way around with the motifs and the border. Once I get that finished I hope the words will go quickly.



Over the weekend I finished Easter Spots by The Trilogy, that I found while stash diving last week and decided to stitch for Easter. I finished it as a pinkeep today.




While I was in finishing mode, I dug SB's April out of the to-be-finished box and made a flatfold so I've got a couple of new Easter pieces to display.


Tomorrow night is PS Weatherwise night and I hope my needles behave themselves.

Happy Stitching!

Great progress, Kathy! I love your pinkeeps, they are adorable. I think I have the SB that you finished, but mine is stuffed away in a box. I need to get it sent off to a finisher! I love your Of Female Arts--that is SO pretty!

You've had a busy week, Kathy! Love your Easter finishes! And kudos to you for almost having the border finished on OFA!! Seeing your progress on Peppermint Twist has me longing to get mine out and start it - you're such a bad influence! LOL

Love your little finishes. And your WIPs are looking great! I hear you on the needles flying away. Seems to happen a lot but fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it), I was the one that got pierced by stepping on it! OUCH!

OH goodness, now girl, quit throwing those needles!! LOL I love your lil Easter projects, they are so sweet!! And your OFA is looking so great, and yep, the verse will go much quicker. Love, love, love your Peppermint Twist. So I guess you are doing a daily rotation? I need to think very hard about that, I need to do something!:LOL

You have some wonderful WIPs on the go, Kathy. And such lovely Easter finishes. They make me want to start a finishing frenzy today. Maybe I will, who knows.
As for disappearing needles, who doesn't know this phenomenon. Once I found a needle in my bra and I had searched the whole room for it with no result. No wonder, lol.
