Relaxing

I think I got too exhausted after moving into my new sewingroom and going back to work. So I have not had some sewingtime in there yet. But I hope I soon will having back my sewing mojo, because I have so many projects in my head (like starting to make the Stitchers Angel pattern, making something to my secret friend in the Stitchers Angel swap and making some christmas things to my SSCS-swap partner, and not to talk about all the other projects)

So to relax I have enjoyed some stitching in my chair in front of the tv. And actually made some stitches before falling asleep. Before going on my summer vacation I traced Leanne Beasleys new stitchery found in Homespun. And this among some other stitcheries have been with me in my bag this summer. So relaxing to just use one colour of thread.

I love Homespun magazine and have now subscribed it from Lapp-Elisa in Sweden. So now I have something to look forward to in my mailbox each month.


Saying for today:

It sounds like you need to make a priority list of things to do. Your stitchery is beautiful. Will you frame it or incorporate it into a quilt or some other project?

Karen said...

The stichery is coming along well. I like anything with a house on it. This one is going to make a very nice gift for someone.

Hey May Britt! Why do our holiday times seem to go so much quicker than our usual work times?!? Do you think it's because we spend most of the year collecting things we'll do during our break ... and then we overload and run out of time!! Your stitching of Leanne's pattern is coming up wonderfully - can't wait to see it all finished! I took some redwork stitching on holidays with me too, but I think you got more done. Have fun stitching! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Hei :o)

Så fint stitcheriet ditt er!!
Kanskje det ble litt mange inntrykk på en gang ;-D
Nytt syrom og jobb samtidig - kan bli overveldende ;-D

Ellers er jo syrommet ditt VELDIG fint!! Når du får summet deg litt så blir det sikkert mange fine prosjekter derfra. Ikke minst det at du har plass til 4 stk der inne - det er jo en drøm :o)

Ha en fin ettermiddag :o)

klem

It's really lovely Abi. I've seen that one too and was tempted!!:0)

Tracey in CT said...

You've gotten quite a good start on that project! I think that is near the top of my to-do list as well. I agree with you that the Homespun magazine is wonderful!

Quilt Hollow said...

Wonderful stitchery! I've been seeing more and more of this sort of craft as of late. :-)

Pilar said...

Your stitchery is beautiful, and your blog very nice.

Joy said...

Love your stitchery!! Homespun is my fave magazine at the moment too. Always filled with designs I want to make ..... I really do need to live to be 108 to make all the things on my list. Thank Heavens for yours and Kris' OPAM ... at least I'm getting some projects finished now instead of flitting from one to another :o).
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Jo in TAS said...

I love my Homespun magazines, I'm trying to collect all the earlier issues I missed. Can't wait to see what project you come up with this year for Stitcher's Angel. Your little bag I made last year gets carried around with my latest stitching in it and at the moment it's a bit of redwork too!
Hugs
Jo

Fran said...

Your work on that stitchery is beautiful. You inspired me so much, that after reading your blog tonight I grabbed my issue of Homespun and drew the design on a piece of fabric, so I now have another project ready to go!
Bet you'll be in that pretty new sewing room before you know it.

Your Stiching is so beautiful! Do you split the thread or do you use it in total? I wondered about that. Also I read almost your entire Blog these days - you got me so motivated! Thank you for that!

I love that stitchery. I'm sure it will be wonderful when you complete it. You accomplish so much in the course of a year - a little break is good sometimes!

This stitchery is stunning! I've seen this wonderful project in homepsun and I've thought that I'll never find the patience to do it!
