Some Sampler Stitching
I did these rows of stitching awhile back on a round robin piece and said I would use them again.  Well, here they are! As sometimes happens in the best of families, occasionally a round robin goes awry.  This is what happened last year in a round robin..  ...

Round Robin Work Finished
 The counted thread round robin I was in on EAC Virtual Threads is done now.  I did my work on the last two pieces and received my piece back. These butterflies are what I added on this one.  I was a bit disappointed in my contribution to this one.  If you ...

Upcycling a Bit of Stitching
 I found this cloth at the local thrift store and was charmed by the hardanger motifs on it.  I think it was a cloth napkin but not entirely sure.  It had stains on it but nothing near the motifs so it was fair game for upcycling in my eyes.  One corner had...

Renovation H-E-double hockey sticks
 I wonder if it is only Canadian kids who say that - H-E-double hockey sticks?  Anyway, one way or another, it has been renovation hell around here the last couple weeks! Here is "the Man" taking up the original flooring in the great room downstairs.  Since...

New Neighbours and Squatters
 As I mentioned in a previous post, I am just getting used to being home again after working away for five months.  Being away that long, you can expect a few changes in the neighbourhood - folks moving in, folks moving out... So, this is my new neighbour w...

Do You See Designs Ideas Everywhere?
I am constantly seeing things that inspire me to try to stitch them - do you?  It seems like these ideas are everywhere around us and I am continually taking photos so I will remember them later. This feature wall on the exterior of the Royal Albert Museum ...

Little Butterfly
It seems like I am getting a few little things done lately - very small things!  This is a little cross stitch butterfly stitched onto perforated paper.  It is part of a larger project that a group of us are collaborating on.  The photo does not show that i...

This Year's Resolutions
Well, my resolutions are very different this year!  Here goes... 1. To buy no more stitch supplies unless I need them to finish an ongoing UFO.  This may be unrealistic, so I will make a backup - no more than one purchase a month. 2. To work exclusively on ...

Another Round Robin Project ...
Believe it or not, I am finally catching up here!  The advantage to having given up on housework during the renovations seems to be more stitching time - yay! So, another round robin project caught up and mailed off.  I found some 17th century stitching pat...

This is part of a table runner making the rounds in a counted thread round robin I am in.  There are three offset rectangular shapes outlined on each end of the runner so what you are looking at here is one end.  I was the third to contribute to this piece....

Ramblings from the River
 There are a wonderful amount and variety of birds here by the river and I have been enjoying waking up to their song each morning.  My first thought when I noticed all the shavings around the base of this tree was that the beavers had been at work again bu...
