New Season, New Starts


If you have followed my blog you may have noticed that I am not really a seasonal stitcher.  I am not fast enough to stitch and finish something to enjoy for a particular season so I work on whatever catches my eye for the moment.  I recently finished Block 10 of Shores of HRH so I rewarded myself with this little Just Nan Exclusive.  It is a Thread or Scissor Pocket and I am enjoying working on the opalescent fabric.

I also started Son #3 Bar Mitzvah sampler.  He has been asking when I was going to get to it and I figured I should get it done before Son #4 is called to the torah on 12/13/14.  Yes it has taken me 2 years.  What took so long you may ask. Well problem #1 is finding a bar mitzvah sampler when you have already stitched two of them and second I had to tweek the design I did find and that took some doing.  Then of course color choices and doubt about color choices.  Putting all of that aside I have started it and it is stitching up quickly.

I am so busy with the start of school, finalizing plans for a bar mitzvah and working that I thoroughly enjoy putting needle to thread.  It doesn't happen often but when it does I don't want to move from my nest. I will leave you with a pic of the Danes who bring me joy, laughter and frustration on a daily basis. Have a great week and Happy Stitching!
