The People's Choice SAL

It's the first Saturday of the month so time for the People's Choice SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Thank you to Jo for hosting this SAL. This month's topic is BLUE.

Blue makes me think of cold so I tend to use it on winter/Christmas projects:


Thanks for looking.


My current project is a pack of Santas - no rhyme or reason, just ones that tickle my fancy and make me smile.

Thanks for looking.

Sampler Life SAL completed

So it's been almost forever since my last post but hopefully it won't be so long between them now. I finished the Sampler Life SAL I was working on and have it framed and on my wall now. I really love how it turned out and am hooked on this format of small patterns grouped together as a sampler.  


Sadly, Santa and his pup from 2018 are still WIPs.

Primitive Santa

Again, it's been awhile and not much stitching.   I've been working sporadically over the winter on Primitive Santa.   I  changed the border quite a bit. I didn't like the original border,  even though it's more "primitive" looking. Excuse the wrinkles, please.

It's been a bit of a stitching slump for me and I'm not sure it's over yet.  I have, however, worked a little on my Sampler Life SAL that has turned into just a sampler of blocks.  The first 3 rows and one block on the 4th row are from the Sampler Life SAL. The remaining bottom blocks are ones I've either found somewhere or I've altered to fit the 50x50 block format.  I'm having a hard time finding blocks that fit in that format so any suggestions are appreciated.  Right now I'm just playing with stitches and colors in the current block.  I may continue with that for the last few blocks until it's finished.

More Stitching!

I finished Small Rustic Composition yesterday.  It was a kit from DMC and a gift.  The kit came with lovely minty green aida but there was a permanent crease in the middle of it so I switched to something I had in my stash.

I also finished a few more squares for the Sampler Life SAL. 

And then when I dug out my iron to press the Small Rustic Composition, I came across 3 other smalls that I finished earlier this year but totally forgot ... duh.

I can't find the pattern for this one, so cannot remember the
designer,  but I think it's from one of the JCS Christmas
magazines.  Sorry ... I'm too lazy to go look it up right now.

I love this little guy.  I stitched him for an exhange a
few years ago and always wanted one for me.
