Next up from the WIP basket

For the longest time I have wanted to pull out these small stockings from Blackbird Designs from quite a long time ago. I finished a couple of months of them and then moved onto something else. I had won this cute little bag from Stitches N things in Michigan and this project fits perfectly in it. 

I started back on the February set entitled  Love is in the Air. This is a fun stitch and I am enjoying it. It is my new Thursday night stitch project/travel stitch.

I also decided that I needed to do a piece on counted canvas. This is work from Nancy's Needle. It is a long languishing WIP.

The big piece is still Mary Wigham on my floor frame. It is a lovely piece. I love the Quaker designs.

I decided to move this to the scroll frame because I was afraid I would never get the hoop marks out. I am trying to stitch from my WIP pile or at least from stash. I did cave and buy a project bag by Sew Much 2 Luv. This is sized a little bit bigger than the regular sized bag. It is a little deeper and will it hold a larger q-snaps as well as all the threads. I love her bags.

Well that is my update for now. I hope to have more frequent small finishes now that the stockings are back in my workbasket. 
Hope you have plenty of stitchy time this week.


  1. Love the colors in Mary Wigham! You are off to a good start on the Violet stocking. What a pretty project bag!

  2. Love seeing what you're working on and what is in your workbasket! I have one of the Christmas BBD stockings on the go though it hasn't received much attention lately.
