Sew ‘n Tell Friday

Hmm… This was a fun week as Grandmama and Grandaddy visited for a few days. I had intended to keep up with my cross stitching but instead I was able to get some things done on my beloved Bernina (with Grandmama’s help and influence!).

We completed the girls Frontier Girls Vests and mine is in progress. I had to go back and forth when I was ordering our badges because AppleBlossom is completing more than we can afford to buy. So for individual things that are not hugely something she’s proud of I’m going to have to figure something else out. But I plan to get us organized and go over things officially with them as so far it’s been more on the random.

AppleBlossom has finished another!! cross stitch kit, this time a butterfly and has begged to get started on the second butterfly the Enginerd bought her. So that’s two finished kits in one week! After this butterfly we have one that is on actually Aida instead of plastic canvas, so we’ll see.

I also started this morning on a Strawberry Pie quilt kit I’ve had for years waiting to be done during the Valentines season. Let’s see how far this goes!

My quilting crafty is back!

We’ve also started reading Milly Molly Mandy aloud. AppleBlossom is reading Blueberries for Sal. And Almond is getting around and thinking about crawling…

  1. Your daughter’s cross stitch turned out really well. My youngest has tried a couple of times to start one, but he always gets frustrated and gives up. I just don’t know how you manage to get so much done … I started a cross stitch around the new year and have maybe a 2×2 square done.

  2. We really need to get back to sewing. I miss it!

  3. Everything’s looking lovely. 🙂
