Stitching and Stashing

I stitched on "My Needle's Work" a little more last night. I'm hoping to maybe get it finished up today. I finished listening to "The Other Boleyn Girl." It was so good and I really can't wait to see the movie now. I just started listening to "The Boleyn Inheritance." It's pretty good so far. It picks up almost where the other one leaves off.

My Needle's Work as of 3/9/08

When I was in Ocala I stopped at Brick City Cross Stitch and picked up a couple of LHN patterns that I didn't have.

New LHN's from Brick City Cross Stitch in Ocala

I also had some fabric waiting for me when I got back. I got a fat 1/8 of Silvery Moon Cashel for Just Nan's "Memories." I pulled the DMC threads to see how they would look on it.

Carol is inspiring me to start this! Her wip is so pretty! :) Well, Matthew is fussing! Write later! :)

P.S. Many people have asked about my thread drops. I get them at my LNS (Silk Road Needlearts). I have also found them at Elegant Stitch. That is where I got my first set. I love them! No more winding on bobbins or dealing with baggies. Or you could make your own like Wawanna and Debby did. :)


  1. I just love your My Needle's Work!! It is just sooooooo cute!! The colors are so pretty for the Just Nan project too!! I also have the ones you got in Ocala in my stash but have yet to stitch them. How neat that you found a needlecraft shop on your trip! It is always fun to get new stash!! Beautiful job on My Needle's Work! I love it! Debby :)

  2. All of your projects look great, Nicole!

    I've read The Other Boleyn Girl and The Boleyn Inheritance but I liked the first book better. I really want to see the movie!!

  3. My Needle's Work is coming along nicely. Knew you would stitch it quickly :) Love the LHN charts you got too!

  4. I love My Needle's Work. I have it in my stash also and I can't wait to get to it.

  5. You are stitching this up so fast! It looks amazing! Things move slowly for this beginner.

  6. My Needle's Work is lovely!

    Two of my girlfriends went to see THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL movie last week - I couldn't make it:( Hope your week is a good one.


  7. Carol's Memories is beautiful! Love the fabric you chose for yours!
