Peppermint Twist Update

I've been making a little progress on PT. I've been trying a rotation where each piece gets its own day to be worked on. I think I have too many projects going and not enough time. I've also got a serious case of startitis. There are so many pieces in my stash that are calling me. I gave in and started PS Weaterwise. I haven't made enough progress for a picture yet.

I'm sad today. It would have been my mom's 94th birthday. She has been gone for 20 years and I still miss her.

Happy stitching!

Of Female Arts

I've been slowly stitching on Primitive Needle's Of Female Arts. I'm stitching it on 40ct Vintage Maritime White with Expresso Belle Soie. This is my first adventure with 40 ct and it is easier than I expected, but I don't think I could do it without my Dazor light.

Valentine's Day

We don't do much for Valentine's Day. DH gave me a card and 2 giant Hershey's Special Dark candy bars and I gave him a card and some workout pants. We ordered pizza for dinner because the restaurants are always so crowded on V Day.

On Saturday nights, I've been stitching on LHN's Heart of America and worked on it for a couple of hours last night. This is my progress so far.

Peppermint Twist SAL

I'm doing a SAL with some on-line friends with Blue Ribbon Designs Peppermint Twist. I'm stitching it on 36 ct. Woodsmoke with one thread over two. I've been making many dumb mistakes and frogging a lot.


I finally gave in to my desire to start a blog. I think it will be a fun way to share my love of stitching and reading.
