Well, a little bit anyways :) I've been working on my North Pole stocking some lately. Not too much, but there's been a lot done since the last pic I posted, in February! I wish I could have found a little bit of a darker blue fabric since the chimney smoke doesn't show very well, but it'll be ok.
And there's a BoInk pic too! I hang my head in shame on this piece, both Rebekah and Andrea have finished theirs and I'm slowly plugging along on mine. And I mean S-L-O-W-L-Y too! I've only managed the four little red blocks and not quite all of the bottom centre block since I last posted a progress pic in July! I think I remember something about having to post a weekly update?!? Just call me Slacker ;)
And what helps me get over the fact that there's not much stitching going on? Why dreaming about stitching of course :) I acquired all of these lovely stitchy books & magazines over the holiday season and there's resulting in all kinds of wonderful stitchy dreams...
And crochet ones too!
Aren't those vintage crochet magazines amazing? The publishing date is 1964. My grandma came across these in the book store she volunteers in and scooped them up for me for Christmas. Along with a couple of those cross stitch magazines in the other pic and the book. And a big bag full of embroidery hoops, about 20 of them or so. And she shared some treasures with me too, like this beautiful petit-point necklace:
I don't know if you can see the detail in this little flower, but I put the dime beside it to show how small it actually is. Definitely a treasure.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you had a wonderful Friday!
