Project Day Finishes, Well Sort Of

Have been working on trying to wrap up some projects.  
I have turned the heel on a sock.  
I want to finish that pair because I got some self stripping yarn this weekend.  
Katy and I took a little road trip to Sturgeon Bay and The Spin.  
The Spin is a yarn store in an old bank building and she has some pretty amazing yarn.  
I picked up some skeins for Christmas presents.  
We had lunch and bummed around downtown.  
I really like Sturgeon Bay, kind of nautical.  

Then I have several projects that needed to be framed.  
I got them mounted and laced up the backs.  
The Summer Sampler from Prairie Schooler must have shifted in the process.  
Oh well, I do get things a little cattywampus. 
Next to it is Four Seasons Sampler 

Cinnamon Stars and Tarot Cards
Abigail Adams and La-D-Da from the Winter Edition of Prim Stitching and Punchneedle. 
Pineberry Lane I Bring Thee Joy and PS January
I finished my second little hedgehog from Prairie Schooler as a pin keep with walnut shells.  
I need something next to my chair.  
My lates on Honey Bee Hill.  
Buster has found a secret spot between the couch and an end table where Henry can't get at him.  
Don't know exactly when he decided to do this but, it works.  
It was a very productive weekend .  
Now I just have to straighten out the sewing room.  
It is sort of a disaster.  

Have a wonderful week. 
Keep on Stitching


  1. A lot of wonderful framed finishes!
    Cinnamon Stars has to be my favourite :)

  2. Productive weekend?! I'll say! Beautiful framing - my favourite is the Tarot Cards, perfect for Halloween.
    That's a sweet little pincushion too. I have been gifted a couple of pincushion but can't bear to use them! I should attempt to make my own.

  3. What wonderful finishes. Oh my goodness - I love Cinnamon Stars - I have that project on my TODO list. Your work is beautiful and little hedge hog pin keep is perfect. You are amazing to get all of this finishing done in one weekend!

  4. What a productive weekend you had! What a wonderful assortment of framed pieces and your little hedgehog is cute! The picture of Buster made me chuckle.

  5. Your framed projects look wonderful! I need to make a trip to the framer myself!

  6. I bet the yarn store was fun.
    Wow, you got a lot accomplished!
    They all look great.
    Poor Buster, hope he found a great hiding spot. :)

  7. Oh my goodness Monica. You're such an inspiration to me. Look at all the beautiful stitching and you accomplished so much in just a matter of a couple of days. It seems that you and I have the same taste when it comes to patterns and all. Keep up the great work and the blog. Love stopping in here. OH! What kind of matting board do you use to stretch your pieces on before you lace them......I think I would like to give it a try.

  8. Beautiful, wonderful stitched and fabulously framed stitching! What fun you must have trying to figure out where to hang them all. I love that PS hedgehog finish. He's adorable!
