As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Wipocalypse June

So here we are on the other side of the Monday marathon madness. I managed 3.5 hours of stitching and stitched on 6 different projects. I actually got excited when the Blackwork came out of the jar! 

So the six were...

3 of the butterflies 

Also to come out was the 12 days of Christmas. 

I managed to get a whole band done on the blackwork seasons sampler. 

Lastly was a little Dragon Dreams dragon I decided to stitch for hubby for our wedding anniversary, I did put in 2 sessions on it one when I got up and then in the evening. It was a good thing as I couldn't find the anniversary card I brought for hubby so frantically finished the dragon and made it up into a little card. 

I've decided that I'm going to do it again tonight, but take the anchor sampler out of the pot as I'm doing that for Just One July. It was actually a lot of fun. 

Lastly the monthly question:

Question of the Month

Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter?

I'm not sure it really makes a difference really. My stitching bug wanders off whenever it pleases, I often have a big hiatus in January but that's about it!

Happy stitching friends 


  1. You did really well - progress on 5 and a finish! Now that's productive.

  2. You did really well with the WIP marathon. Love the blackwork sampler.

  3. Oh I've thought of you!! You did very well and managed to make good progress on all the selected projects.
    I will be joining the fun too for the Just One July. Let's see how much we can do :)

  4. Wow! Lots of progress...and I love the dragon. He's so sweet! May I ask the designer of the pattern? I have a little grandson who loves dragons and can see this as a Christmas ornament.

  5. Great Stitching -- Thank you for sharing your wips. I had so much fun with this Marathon...

  6. So you couldn't resist Jo's idea either, lol. And wow, you had a lot of progress during your stitch marathon. And lovely projects, too. That blackwork sampler looks gorgeous.
