Some Stitch'in Going On Here

I have told you before that Tuesday is my favorite day of the week. It's my stitching day with friends. For the past two weeks it seems that I have done more ripping out than stitching. I have put that ripping project back in the closet. I was using silk floss and as you know it doesn't rip out well. I have ordered some more silk floss and I am going to take a break from that project for now. I have started my next project from A Stitcher's Journey by BBD. I love this book and want to stitch every project in it. Please excuse the photos. We have not had a lot of sun up here in the Northern part of NYS. Below is the Tulip Pincushion that goes inside the Tulip House Stitching Companion.

This is a picture from the book. I was very fortunate to have some of the same fabric that Barb and Alma used on their project. It is my dream to someday take a cross stitch class from these ladies. I was lucky enough to take a quilting class from them. They had a beautiful trunk show with them that included some cross stitch projects as well as many beautiful quilts. They are down to earth, sweet and funny along with being very talented. If you ever get a chance to take one of their classes you will not be sorry. They are taking this year off from teaching but hopefully they will be back next year.

I also have a finish to share with you. This is also a design by BBD. It is going to be a gift for a friend for Christmas. I am so excited to have this one finished already.

Stitching day is always fun chatting about family, friends and new projects. We have tons of laughs. School has let out for the summer so I can stay longer than usual as I don't have to pick up my grandchildren from school. Speaking of grandchildren, I had a very busy week with them. First we had Fifth Grade Moving Up day. My grandson will now be going to the middle school. We also had Eight Grade Graduation. OMGoodness! My granddaughter will be going to the high school next year. How in the world did this happen?? I am so not ready!!!

Now back to my stitching day. Along with the fun and laughs we also have a great lunch. I took one bite of my zucchini crepe and had to share it with you.

OH MY, were they delish!! I licked my plate clean. It would be nice if you could join us some Tuesday.

I am off to stitch for a bit and then it is off to bed for me. Have a great week. I hope that you find time to do what ever makes you happy.

Hugs and Stitches,
