proof that I am still stitching

Hello Friends!

It has been a month ... I know that my month's worth of progress looks like what most of you accomplish in a week, but we won't think about that. :) Here are some things to share.

First up is a little pincushion I made for Margaret for the stitching bloggers' birthday club. Margaret loves all things blue, so I decided to do this little design in a blue colorway for her. Somewhere I have the names of the CC fibers I used, I'll try to come back and add them here. I filled this cushion with pellets and fiberfill and I liked the squishy weight of the pellets a lot.




I am working my way through the 2007 JCS ornaments I wanted to stitch. Here is the over 1 ornament from Brightneedle. This is so tiny! Those itty bitty french knots were challenging. Next up is the LHN ornament -- love the colors in this one.




Here is my progress on the Jane Austen Stocking Sampler. This project is such a joy!


I made quite a bit of progress on BBD's Autumn Song. Here is where I was last time I picked it up:

And here is my progress now ... 4 more leafs done:


That's all for now, folks. Preggo update... I am at 29 weeks and need to hurry up and finish this post because I have an appt. with my midwife in 1 hour! See you next time; happy thanksgiving to all.
