Stitching Progress

I've really had a good summer in the way of crafting this year. Lots of knitting and stitching going on:) I usually have a lull in my desire to create during the beginning of the summer, but didn't fall into that this year, which I'm really happy about:)

I'm currently working on two different projects. First is 'Tis the Season Sewing Bag' by Blackbird Designs...
Love the colors on this and that it will become a bag when I'm done!! Have I ever mentioned just how much I love bags?!?!? HA!! 

And I've been working on Spring Snapperland by Bent Creek...

I really love this one too. I have charts for the whole set and only have the Autumn one done. Can't wait until they are all done. 

Honestly, spring stitching is not what I'm in the mood for right now. Autumn stitching is just calling my name!! But I really don't need to start a new project, and really, really don't need another project for myself. I do have the 'Autumn' Wordplay from With Thy Needle and Thread that I need to get started for my mother-in-law. *Picture of Summer and Spring*  But that is going to take a bit of time SO... I planned an exchange project on a Facebook pg I'm on so that I can indulge in another Autumn project, and not feel guilty for starting something else.:) Hehehe!! I haven't done an exchange for a while, so I'm pretty excited about it. Not sure yet what I'm going to stitch but maybe something from the Autumn Splendor charts by Brenda Gervias (With Thy Needle and Thread), I haven't decided which one yet.

Tomorrow is the monthly 'Friday Night Sew In' with Wendy at Sugarlane Designs. I need to decide what I'm going to sew on. My sister-in-law wants a market bag like I made HERE, and I need to sew up the Summer Wordplay for my mother-in-law, so those are probably the projects I will focus on. I should have pictures up of my progress by Saturday:) 


  1. Good progress on your pieces, Shannon! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Perfect inspiration :) and what attention to detail! I admire and congratulate.
