Stitching and Stuff

I got a little bit more done on P&P. It's coming along. I'm almost to the reindeer and tree section. I keep thinking if I do keep working on it non-stop maybe I will get it done by Christmas?? Maybe?? We'll see! :)

I use to have trouble with 40 ct. linen and I think I've figured out why. I always used a size 28 needle and I found it was too sharp and split the linen threads too much. I've been using a size 26 needle and it seem to be working much better. I did get a little stash in the mail yesterday too...

I got my "Brave Hearts" pattern and some silks for it from Handcrafts Online. I'll probably start this one sometime in 2008 after finishing P&P and Prairie Sampler.

Well, I'd better get some work done! Write later! :)


  1. Oh Nicole your Poinsettias and Pines is just really beautiful!! I had seen that in my LNS but until seeing yours I didn't realize how really beautiful it is. My DH got me that for my birthday and I just love it!! I have only got one poinsettia stitched on it as I have to finish an ornament for a friend, but I just love it and enjoy watching your progress!! You have great taste in projects too. This is just really pretty and I am doing mine on 40 ct too.

  2. Your PP turns out so lovely....you are really tempting me....
    Are you stitching on Elegant Bean or on Luna? And does it ask for Crescent Colors or GAST? I think I won't be able to stop myself from ordering it.... :-)

  3. The more I see your P&P coming along, the more it's calling my name. :)

  4. Love P&P. It has been calling to me at the LNS. Still might have to get it. Also "Brave Heart" is on my list too.

  5. You'll definitely be finished by Christmas!!

    Brave Hearts is lovely - I've been wanting to get it ever since I saw it on your blog a few weeks ago.

  6. Glad you're home safely from GA. I am almost sure you will get P&P done before Christmas! It seems as if you stitch soooo fast! I'm lucky to get an hour in any day lately. I love the new stash!

  7. Your P&P wip looks very pretty. You seem to be a very fast stitcher, so I think you will finish it soon.
    I just recently received LHN's Brave Hearts in the mail too and can't wait to start it sometime after the new year. We enjoy watching your progress.
    happy stitching,

  8. I'm going to have to try 40ct sometime... so many stitchers seem to be in love with it. I need to see what its all about!
