Monday Update

I hope everyone reading this had a very Happy Easter weekend. We ate ourselves miserable several times haha. It was just our household to celebrate this year but we had a great time and enjoyed each other. Jeremiah found a bunch of candy and some new PJs and swim clothes. He was one happy little kiddo. I was able to get a lot of stitching time too. So it was a fantastic weekend indeed.

After the WIPocalypse update on the 23rd I picked up the Spring Bell Pull from the Stoney Creek Magazine. I was able to get the S block all finished up...
It took me 9 days to do. Here is a reminder of what it will look like...
There are backstitched words that go along with the blocks in the pattern. This one said Sing. I've decided to leave the words off. It's funny because I saw another person doing this set of patterns and she left the words off too. Anyway in the opening on the left of the letter S there is a cute little bee button. I just won't put it there until the piece is finished so it doesn't get broke. After I finished the S block up Saturday I knew Sunday Hope could pop back out. I got 540 more stitches into her...
I'm linking up to the Stitchery Link Party. She has an adorable duck embroidery freebie this week. If you want to head over and link up to share the project you've been working on.

Also there is a giveaway going on over at Sasha's blog. Follow this link. She found some beautiful patterns at a sale and is willing to part with one of them. The giveaway ends 4/3.

I hope everyone has a great week.

  1. Congratulations on finishing up your letter S already! It looks great. I can't see where the words would go on the banner but agree with you anyway that it will look better without them.
    Hope looks gorgeous as always.
    Glad to hear you had a good Easter. Our boys were thoroughly spoiled on the egg front, and I got a small gold egg of my own.

  17. I think you should count your S as a mini finish. I agree that it doesn't need any lettering. Hope's looking good for a 2016 finish too. Keep those needles burning! :)
