  1. Your 3 color shawl is gorgeous, such pretty colors. The second shawl looks great too. All Creatures Great and Small looks better each week. Almost makes me want to buy the chart and supplies! I'm a closet sampler stitcher but the sizes of these scare me! Enjoyed the kitty show going on behind you!

    1. Thanks Shelly! Yes, those cats are so silly. I didn't even realize they were doing all that. Crazy cats!

  2. Lovely finishes, Nicole! I love the PSS and the chalkboard, especially. If I didn't hate stitching on black so much, I'd definitely stitch that one. Love your shawl, too. You've been a busy and productive, gal!

  3. Oh, goody! Another episode to watch! I will save it for when I have some quiet time later today.

    Love your stitching progress. I'm going to have to be a copy cat and stitch Summer in Nantucket on the same fabric.


    1. Thanks Pam!! It's the called for fabric (except I used 35 instead of 36). :)

  4. Thank you Ncole for this wonderful post .
    Have a lovely day,

  5. I love your Summer in Nuntcucket!
    Wonderful post!
    Love from Italy,

  6. Love your posts. I am finishing up Ashburn Shawl and it to is huge and long. Thank you for suggestion on the the pattern. It is so pretty. Keep the podcasts going

  7. This was the first episode I watched and I really enjoyed it:) Nicole, you are very inspiring with so many great finishes! I saw Sarah Redfearn 1826 and the silk threads....I'm in big trouble! Have loved the chart since it was released. Your cats are adorable!

    1. Thanks Angie! I really appreciate the kind comment!

  8. Hi Nicole! You are adorable and the lighting was just fine! Love seeing what you are working on. You're such an inspiration! Wishing you were going to the SB Retreat. At this writing it's only just about 2 weeks away. I have lots of your podcasts to catch up on! (doing it at work for the moment while the boss is away!) XOXO, Cathy
