January Progress

Hey, Friends!
When Pixie and I went out this morning, I wondered why this beautiful “red sky in the morning” wasn’t bringing some snow it surely is cold enough! 

Our Carolina Girls had a small group meeting last week, and it was such fun!  Some came with gifts always a treat.  Faye brought us a little pin pillow from a kit from PALS stuffed with sawdust.  It’s the first one I know that I have. With sawdust.  She also included a dainty penny pin that she stitched up for us, and to make it even more special, a piece of her Nana’s needle work, too.  Linda brought us a sweet tissue cover pouch that her Mom made for us, and some cookies - no photo - they were delish!!  Macadamia with cranberry yummy!

It looks like everyone is making some great progress with their 2014 stitching and finishing.  I’m enjoying taking my time with Miss Eliza. 

Maureen and I were talking about Orts ornaments, so here is a picture of them for her.  You can see that the box for the round ones is not marked Christmas, but the shaped ones are.  I have thought I’d change the shape for different years, but haven’t done that yet!

May 2014 be filled with Happy Stitching!



  1. Love seeing your presents and your stitching. I have ornaments for my orts as well!

  2. Your Eliza is looking great. Stay warm!

  3. Been wondering how you're doin:) Happy Stitchy New Year! xo

  4. Gosh, I have ONE ornament left--I can swap out the shreds of paper and put in orts! That would be too cool! Great thought! For taking your time with Miss Eliza, you have accomplished a lot! Great piece. I hope to get around to posting progress pictures today, or else soon. The weather has done havoc to keeping up with everything: work hours are crazy with delays, etc, makeup, etc... Not wanting to drive in the ice, and so on! Today and tomorrow might get rid of it all. Hugs!

  5. So nice to meet up with your stitching friends. Eliza is looking great, I love the house colors.
    Have a great week!

  6. Thanks for the photo Charlene. I am going to go to Hobby Lobby this week and look for them.
    Take Care


  7. It's always fun to catch up with you, Charlene. Love that sunrise photo and of course, your projects!

  8. Lovely looking Eliza sampler, Charlene--that blue house is so pretty. And how nice to get together with the other Carolina stitchers--nice gift from Faye :)

    Are you getting that snow that I saw was moving into the south? I sure hope you're warm and comfy--take care now!

  9. I've thought about doing that with my orts, but so far, I've just tossed them into the backyard for the birds.

  10. Beautiful Eliza sampler!! So much fun to get together with the other ladies and receive a sweet pillow from Faye! Hugs!
