Days 4 and 5...in my year of stitches...


Good Morning Friends,
It's a wicked -7 degrees outside...but the sun is pouring thru the windows and it's cozy inside.

I didn't get to post yesterday's stitch, it was a full day...some are like that...most are;)

You may have noticed...I seem stuck in a variation of chain stitches...there are many to explore!

Day 4 was Lazy Daisy...and Day 5 adds some sweet Colonial Knots...


You can follow all my stitches on Instagram
I'll still post about them here and on Facebook...but not sure I can keep up daily with all three.

Thanks to everyone who has taken time to comment...nice to know there are so many kindred souls out there ~ Laurie

Day 3 in 1 Year of Stitches

Day 3...
Chain Stitch
one of my all time favorites...
The next few days will build on the this stitch...at least that is the current plan;)

back in the day, most of my jeans and shirts had bits of embroidery on them!
I doodled on all my school notebooks...and stitched on any piece of cloth that was in reach!

Today is filled with finishing class models, prepping "Shady Spot" ~ the 2017 Annual LJF Rug Project, a doctor appointment and errands for Dad. I hate having to take him out when it is so cold and icy...
but my mantra is "we do what we have to do"
Then it's back to a little stitch and wool therapy
Wishing you all a happy day! ~L

Day 2 ~ 1 Year of Stitches


Day 2...
Tulip Stitch
I'm stitching on a vintage piece of muslin that I picked up at Playing Possum Antiques & Whimsy in St. Peter, MN.
We stopped in to browse on our drive home from our niece's wedding in Sioux Falls. The wedding was wonderful, it was great seeing family and fun catching up with everyone!

But now it's time to put the holidays behind me, focus on many projects in between caring for Mom and Dad...
Lots of exciting things to come this year!
