SOME STITCHING DONE

I have finally finished stitching the September block of Sweet Nostalgia. At first, I thought the stitching was going fast. Wrong! There is a lot of stitching on these designs. They remind me of the Dick and Jane books that I learned to read from as a child. I would like to do all the blocks in the series but it will be a long term project. I just have too many other projects to do. I used Crayola Crayons for the color added to the stitchery.
And I have caught up on the Bunny Hill Snowbound blocks. Here is February and March's blocks. I just noticed that I did not stitch the snow line on the March block. That should only take a few minutes. I saw a block on another blog done with red polka dot skis and decided I needed to do the same.

And the last photo is for Darlene of Quilting Daze. She asked that I take a picture of my pincushion collection that I have displayed in a basket. I think I have shown them all individually as I made or acquired them. There are more I would like to make.
I am still prepping a wool table mat with cherry trees & sheep. I was tracing the shapes onto freezer paper & pressing onto the wool the other night when I had trouble sleeping. I surely did not count correctly. Possibly due to the lack of sleep. I have to trace & prepare a few more shapes today. Lots of tiny pieces on this mat.

A beautiful day here in Florida today! Take care & come back to visit me again soon.

  16. Your blocks are wonderful! That is a lot of stitching on the Sweet Nostalgia blocks - I've been thinking about doing them all in one color. It seems to go faster that way - but I LOVE them with the crayon. We'll see.

    Your pincushion collection is amazing!
