march 16 - another pattern will be traveling soon

So, while most everyone around the country has been enjoying summer-like weather, here in the Pacific Northwest it has been raining like crazy. The last two days were just non-stop downpours, but it seems to have let up today, so I have high hopes for at least a partially clear weekend (maybe...).

I've had these photos sitting in my blogger for days now...just no time to post anything! But now I have a few things...

About the only stitching I managed last weekend...an update on my Traditional Sampler. Only one more band to go!


An idea for those of you who love Vikki's silks...now that they mostly (always?) come on bobbins, I was looking for a way to store them. While shopping for something else, I came across these cute little bobbin boxes....


They store 21 bobbins and were only $3.99. I thought that was a pretty good deal...and they can stack and take up very little space too.

Lately, I have noticed several bloggers being awarded the Liebster Award. It is for great blogs that are starting out and have fewer than 200 followers. What a wonderful way to be introduced to new bloggers! I have been having so much fun reading fun facts about bloggers I already know, and discovering lots of new blogs to follow. I'm not sure who got this one started, but thank you! It's a wonderful idea!

And, finally, I finished the stitching on Busy Needle from LHN. This was beautifully stitched and finished by Becky a few weeks ago (I still haven't decided how I'm going to finish mine) and when people started looking for the design (which was a special edition and no longer available), I realized I had it in my stash. So I stitched it up and am now offering it as a traveling pattern.


If you would be interested in a chance to stitch this adorable design, please leave me a comment on this post, and please make sure to leave an email address so I can contact you.

This is our IHSW weekend and I am hoping to finish an exchange piece and stitch up three PIFs that need to be sent out very soon. I'd love to also maybe stitch something that I can show on Monday too, but we'll see what happens. We're having a sleep-over with our grandson on Saturday night which usually means no stitching time for gramma, but that's ok by me as long as he is around!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Oh, can't wait to see the final band put in! And I love your Travelling chart finish too, but don't include me in the travelling part.

    Hope that your weather clears up. Our weather here is just nuts for this time of year - in the 70's and my early flowers are up and the trees are budding. Much too early for that! Have a great weekend!
