Stitching up a Storm Today!

Well, I went stitching today. I stayed for about 3 hours and got a lot of my March Flip-it Bit done. When I got home Matthew crashed, so I stitched a little more.

A little more progress on a Bit of March

While stitching March I got the urge to start Blackbird Designs "Their Song," so I did!

Another pic. of my new start - Blackbird Designs "Their Song."

I was also inspired to start when I saw these in my yard...


There were two of them, but I couldn't get close enough for a decent pic. While stitching I picked up a couple things...

Couple things I got at Nantz's Needlework.
Mary Garry's "Milkpaint Sampler" and Papillon Creations "Simple Little Quaker."

The picture of the Mary Garry sampler does not do it justice. I saw one finished on an Asian website. Click here to view.

I also stopped at the yarn shop on my way up stitch. I had never been in before because I usually have the kids with me and I hate dragging them into places like that. Anyway, I got a few skiens of sock yarn.

Lorna's Laces sock yarn - baby stripe colorway.
Lorna's Laces - Baby Stripe.

Lorna's Laces in the Watercolor colorway.
Lorna's Laces - Watercolor.

They only had one of the 2nd colorway, so I'll have to make some ankle socks. :) I love Lorna's Laces - it's the same yarn I'm using for these socks...

One Finished sock and one WIP sock as of 12/17/06

Well, I think that's enough blogging for one day! I'm ready for bed! Write later! :)


  1. You really got a lot done! Very cute.

    I was contemplating starting the new loose feather too this week, it's really pretty.

  2. You go girl :) I have been stitching a good bit this weekend as well :)
    Nice start on BS :)

  3. Lovely work Nicole! I love the yarn you picked up. Very pretty.

  4. I'm curious what the colorway on those socks might be. It's gorgeous.
