I Should Be Doing Homework

Here is my start on I Stitch's, Sew Winter. I was going to do this one over one, but the white got lost in the light blue. I think if the blue was a little darker, it might have shown up better. I just love Carol's little samplers. I will have to purchase more. I started thinking that i have no rhyme or reasoning to the type of stitching I chose. I just love everything. I can't seem to make up my mind on what kind I like. Nature, fantasy, holiday, sampler, quaker, primitive, cutesy, smalls... I might just have to narrow down and find my favorite and stick with it. Does anyone else have this problem, or do you have your own favorite genre of cross stitch and stick with it?

Here is an update on the fabric I bought on Ebay that smelled of smoke. It was very simple really. I just left them outside for a full day on a not so sunny day, and viola...the smell is gone. I was just that easy. I wasn't expecting that. All of these pieces are larger than 12"x12" and I got it all for only $12.00 plus $3.00 for shipping. It was a deal considering the smell.
Well, I'm off to have dinner with the family. I made Gumbo tonight. Yum.
Good Evening,


  1. Great deal on the fabric and I'm glad that the smoke smell came out!

    Nice start :o)

  2. So glad you were able to solve your problem so easily. And I love the new start. I don't really stick to anyone design I guess as I like a variety but I do tend to be drawn to the BBD, PS and sampler type designs the most. Hope you enjoyed your gumbo - sounds delish!

  3. The white color thread on light blue linen is looking good, Hillery. I have my latest design in white thread on tea linen, it's looking great and I love it. I love all cross stitch patterns except cartoon's character patterns.
    Glad to hear you solve the smoke smell problem. :)

  4. So glad the smell came out! I think I would write a review that the items you received came from a smoker. They really should disclose that!
