Much to show and a book finish

First let me say thanks to all the wonderful comments I received about my nieces stitching piece! I was the first to be amaze by her interest in stitching and oh so happy that she loves it and came upon this on her own! She is amazing! I do think it's in her genes!

I have updates on Cinderella Sampler from Willow Hill Samplings....several pictures follow and I hope they are better than the last! and and and my favorite part of the sampler Her slipper is on the path and she is most definitely barefoot....the next scene to stitch is Prince charming presenting her with the said slipper! She is almost done and I love her! The fabric is a Silkweaver Solo and is 36 count!

Next up is my progress on M-designs Letter J! ! I already have the Letter C done for hubby and then the Celtic Heart all to be framed together! The fabric is PTPlus 32ct Davinci!

I hade another new start yesterday... not shocked I know... It's a SAL with Margaret and Brenda (no blog yet) from my wednesday stitching group at SP. The fabric is 30ct Twisted Peppermint Pink and the pattern is called Scraps the Mummy.....don't have a picture of the model photo but promise to soon! Not much done but it will definitely be fun and it's the first time I'm using anchor threads.....just what the pattern called for. And also Margaret bestowed on me this award.... I am so honored! Thank you dear friend!

The rules are as follows:

I am going to bend the rules a bit since I read so many wonderfully creative blogs that I just can't pick 8! So if you are reading this considered yourself tagged........

Off to stitch and have a cup of tea.....

I almost forgot I just finished The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. A simply amazing book that took a while to read but is so very worth it! It gives a new perspective to dracula and is filled with wonderful images and characters that you just can't help falling in love with......I highly recommend it!

I am grateful for dear stitching friends..............

May your needle fly through your fabric.........


  1. That Cinderella sampler is just gorgeous. Those colors are so soft and pretty--great job!

    1. I love the sampler too! I can't even imagine how awesome it will be once it is framed and put on the wall.

  2. Love that Cinderella sampler, this is so gorgeous! Wonderful job on your other stitching too.

  3. I do love your Cinderella sampler. And I'll have to take you up on your book recommendation. It's been sitting in my pile for a awhile - I'll have to pull it out.

  4. Cinderella looks great, and you've got a nice start on that Mummy. The Historian sounds really good. I'm going to add it to my list of books to read! I'm a sucker for a good Dracula story (no pun intended!).

  5. Juls your Cinderella Sampler is so pretty. I love seeing your updates on it.

    Nice start on the Mummy and the M Designs is looking lovely.

  6. I love your commentary on Cinder...it just makes her so real! Her story lives on.. :) Hugs, Deb

  7. Cinderella sampler looks fabulous. Kudo's to your neice-her project looks great!
