Thank you all for your very kind comments on my class piece! I still can't believe I actually finished it. I did start a few things over the weekend and I finished one!

Pine Tree Hill
Little House Needleworks "Pine Tree Hill" from the JCS 10/06 issue
Fabric: 28 ct. Creme Brulee by R&R
Threads: Crescent Colours and DMC

My two other starts were by The Primitive Needle, which I think is becoming my newest favorite designer.

Kindred Spirits by The Primitive Needle

This one is "Kindred Spirits." I'm stitching it on 40 ct. Vintage Light Examplar, which I already had in my stash. The threads are Belle Soie Noir and Kiwi and Sampler Threads Bittersweet.

The Primitive Needle "Simply Live"

And this one is "Simply Live." I first saw this on Monique's blog and fell instantly in love! I saw it at Mary's shop over the weekend and came up with my own color scheme using all four of the conversions listed in the pattern. The fabric is 40 ct. Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linens.

Well, I'm going to get back to stitching while Matthew is taking a nap! Thank you again everyone!! Write later! :)


  1. Nicole, I love your start on Simply Live! I started this one on Vintage Lentil and I'm just waiting for my blue thread to arrive before I do any more. I'm looking forward to your progress on this.

  2. OH I am in love with Kindred Spirits! Can't wait to see your stitching on that one.

  3. I really, really, REALLY want to know your secret! You stitch such gorgeous things so incredibly fast. It's like ... magic. That's it, isn't it? ;)

  4. I like the colors in Kindred Spirits...

    Can't wait to see the progress on that one.

  5. I love all your projects. You are a great stitcher :-)

  6. Love seeing all the floss lined up with your progresses.
