Hello my fellow stitchers and crafters, today I thought I would hop on the blog here and do a quick check in of what I’m currently stitching. True, it has been ever so long since I published anything, but for a long time I couldn’t even manage a simple Instagram post. My mental health took a real hit this year and it has been a very long and tiring struggle. At some point I may write about it, but for now I’m just working on getting back to doing the things that I’ve enjoyed in the past, which includes blogging. So here’s me, blogging for my mental health. Right now I have three active WIPs that I am stitching on for November so we will take a look at where each of them stand.
Pumpkin Patch by Primrose Cottage Designs
Over the summer I stitched my very first Primrose Cottage pattern. I absolutely loved it! When I finished it I went online to see if there were any other patterns I liked (encouraged by an enabling stitchy friend) and sure enough I immediately feel in love with Pumpkin Patch and decided it would be my main project for November. I am using all of the called for DMC & speciality floss and stitching it on 14 count Aida in the color Wren. I’m hoping to be at least half way to a finish before the end of the month.
Pumpkin Delivery by Mill Hill
Typically, I always have a small Mill Hill kit in progress, mainly because I love them, but also because they are fairly quick to stitch so you get the satisfaction of having.a finish. Right now I am in the mental process of planning out a seasonal display for an archway in the house. I plan to use Mill Hills hung vertically in a bell pull style. For the fall display I’m planning on stitching the Mill Hill Pumpkin ornaments, but I wanted something different for the first ornament in the line so I chose Pumpkin Delivery. If somehow I don’t manage to finish it before the end of the month, I will dedicate the first weekend in December to finish so I can switch to a winter kit.
Cozy Cafe by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
This project was the 2021 year long SAL from TFPS, however I was not able to keep in time with them so it became one of my focus project that I stitch using my Millennium Frame. This will not be finished by the end of the month, probably not even by the end of the year. I would like to have the top row done before the end of the year though, and I do think that might be possible. Typically, I dedicated a minimum of 15 minutes a day to my frame pieces, but I think I will up that to 30 minutes until the end of the year.
Okay those are all my active WIPs for November, hopefully I will have some decent progress to share next week. Bye for now and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
