Late Monday Happenings...

Meant to post earlier but my printer finally jerked my chain enough that I had to replace it. So, that meant a trip to town and shopping... and that threw dinner later than planned...and then DWTS was on...

So here we are ~


My mailman brought me my new floss. Aren't they gorgeous?! I especially like all the purple in this lot. And after playing with them I just had to make something.

Oh My Stars! Pincushion
from A Stitcher's Journey
Blackbird Design
28 ct Cashel Taupe
VMS floss
I have been wanting to make this pincushion since I got the pattern, When I saw the new floss together it just fit. Had this completely finished and decided to add more walnut shells. That meant I had to take the ric-rac off and unstitch. Now I'm satisfied with the poofiness. Tomorrow will see the ric rac back on. This time I think I'll stitch it on instead of hot glue.

Because I detoured on the pincushion I failed to get anything more stitched on The First ~


That's a lot of solid stitching in Olive Green. Maybe later this week I'll get it finished.

Since I'm about to fall asleep - It's off to bed for me!
Night night everyone!

Lovely floss and great progress on another tag for the calendar.
I hope that your foot is getting better daily. I am looking forward to seeing how you finish the pin cushion.

That floss looks gorgeous, & I love that BBD pin pillow. I have made a couple of those as gifts but really need to make one for myself! Perhaps seeing your's will give me the kick in the butt I need to do that : ) I'm looking forward to seeing it finished!

Love the BBD finish... look forward to seeing the final product! And yes, that is a lot of solid stitching. I just finished Sweet Stella by Erynne Chard and THAT was a lot of yellow! but it is very sweet, and hopefully soon I will post about it... Hugs!

lol! I call your experience of getting distracted by your errand, etc. the "Give Your Mouse a Cookie" syndrome....from the children's book.

Yummy floss!
