Time Flies!!!


I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by and that the last time I've posted to this blog was May 14th!!  So much has happened.... #1 graduated High School and is in the final stages of her countdown to college, #2 got her driver's permit and has already hit the road almost every day since last week, I got a new day job and a local college and am LOVING it, had some downtime with the family... and even with all that I've gotten a substantial amount of stitching done. 

I have been asked to stitch four of the BH&G Heirloom Stockings from someone who reached out to me on a message board.  I am about three weeks in to the first one Called "Toys and Games" and you can see the progress below.  They're done with DMC three over two on 25-count mushroom Lugana which I LOVE stitching on.  The photos were taken after 1 week, 2 weeks and then 3 weeks just now.

I have some other smaller projects finished as well as part 1 of L*K's Mystery Sampler just about done but I'll show you those in future blogs.  In the meantime, I'd like to hold a mystery giveaway---leave a comment about what your favorite part of this summer has been and I'll pick a winner this time next week. It'll be a pattern, floss and fabric and I promise you won't be disappointed! (Open to all---not just U.S. followers.)

Have a great week and just keep stitching! ~Nicole


  1. Wow you have gotten a lot stitched in just 3 wks, great work.
    My fav part of this summer has been playing with my 2yr old grandson in the sprinkler, his smiles just make me happy.

  2. Great stitching. It will be wonderful when it is finished!

  3. Favorite part of the summer has been the Olympics and watching my son enjoy the outdoors.

  4. My favorite part of the summer will be when my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson move into their new house!

    Great stitching!

  5. You have gotten a lot of stitching done in 3 weeks great job!!!
    The best part of my summer has been all the family reunions that we have attended.
    Happy Stitching

  6. The best part of this summer has been watching my 46 year old son proposing for the first time in his life to his lovely Lisa. They've been going with each other for a year and a half and I knew the very first time I met her that she was someone that would be in his life forever. She completes him and I've never seen him happier. She's a beautiful sweetheart. I have been so blessed.

    Thank you for an opportunity to win a nice giveaway.

  7. Hello, Nicole,
    I am stitching Toys and Games stocking too, and I see that your stitching/pattern is a mirror image of what I have. I am just following the pattern. Are you customizing? Thank you.
