Worn Out!

I am worn out from this weekend! You wouldn't think stitching all day would make someone so tired! I'm sure part of it has to do with Matthew waking up at 5:45 am everyday. I don't think he's gotten used to daylight savings yet! Anyway, I had so much fun at my Susan Greening Davis class. The project is beautiful and not extremely hard. I think I may actually get this one finished! Here are some pics...

The view outside our classroom. So pretty!

The main part of the project. A beautiful shaker carrier. This is not mine, but a fellow stitcher's.

The lid of the Shaker box. This is Susan's finished project.

The inside of the box. I'm not sure if I'm going to line my box. I hate to put glue on it!

Needleroll. The linen is linen banding, so no sewing required - how awesome is that?? :) There is a also a little ruler you stitch that rolls up too. I didn't get a picture of that. It's also done on linen banding.

A little bit of what I had done. I've almost got the pin cushion finished too!

Martha and Anita (I think that's her name). I'm so bad with names!

Watching them glue!

Martha - checking out all the goodies!

More Goodies!

Well, that's all! I had so much fun and was so glad Susan put me by Martha. She's such a great person! :)

Oh, I did finish up Curly Q on Friday. I love it, but I am so glad it's done. I was actually thinking of framing this one! :)

Little House Needleworks "Curly Q Ewe"

I think this post is long enough! So I'll write later! :)


  1. wow, you are soo speedy! Great pictures! I'm so glad I got to spend the weekend stitching with you! Thank you so much for all the goodies, but, even more, thanks so much for taking that van load of us women STASH shopping!!!!! It was a great weekend. We had so much fun. Can't wait to see you finished project!

  2. I love your Curly Q Ewe. I think I will have to get that pattern. That's the problem with so many great stitching blogs, stash expansion!

    Great stitching pictures.

  3. Congratulations on finishing Curly Q - very cute!

    The class looks divine. I have a Shaker Box - I might have to look at lining it and making it pretty!

    I love the pink Ott light! I know it's not yours, but I've got to find me one of those!

    I'm glad you had fun at your class.

  4. That class and the project looks good enough to eat! LOL! Just kidding but I really DO love that project! It's going to be super when all finished up!

    CONGRATS on yet another beautiful finish! She's a cutie if ever I saw one!

    Now rest up!

  5. Wow! Great pictures and a fabulous finish!!

  6. It sounds like you had great fun. Lovely photo's and I'm glad you enjoyed it so much.

    Curly Q is really cute. I agree, I think you should frame it.

  7. Your Curly Q Ewe looks stunning, I have ordered mine and should be here soon. Looks like you had fun at the class, did you buy any of the goodies, I am drooling just looking at your photos.

  8. Looks like a fantastic project and wonderful class!!!

    Wonderful finish!!! Seeing yours finished makes me want to start mine :)

  9. That class looks great, Nicole! Your Curly Q Ewe turned out beautifully. I can't wait to get mine. :-)


  10. Great pics! That looked like a fun class and your projects are wonderful! The Curly Q Ewe is adorable!

  11. It looked like a lovely class. Curley Q is gorgeous, congratulations

  12. Wow! Bet you had fun at your class. I'd love to go to one. Thanks for the invite to the LNS's :) I have never really been down the West coast - only the east! I have visited a LNS in Largo and one in Dunedin. The one in Largo doesn't have much of a selection =/ The one in Dunedin has a nice selection, but I think the prices are a little high. I think I get way better deals online!

    Maybe we can get together sometime after the New Year. I am going to be pretty busy every weekend until then. Plus, I have *SO* many things to stitch before Christmas. Not sure how I'm going to get it all done!

  13. Curly Q is so cute! I love it :D And your retreat looks so awesome. I'd love to go to something like that. I know I will someday... :D

  14. This is absolutely lovely and sweet!!
    Congratulations on your finish!
    I have the chart but haven't all threads that I need. As seeing your finished piece, I really want to stitch this!
    Very beautiful stitch!

  15. Curly Q Ewe is so cute - congrats on the finish!
