Did you Miss me?

I wonder if you’ve been wondering where I’ve been? I didn’t realize how long it’s been since my last post. I haven’t been stitching, not at all, not a single stitch, nothing, nada…so not much to talk about. I hit these slumps every so often with my stitching where nothing thrills me enough to want to stitch. Trust me it’s not that I don’t have plenty of choices! And part of it is that I am working way too much, so stitching is the last thing that I want to do. And last but not least, I’ve been saving myself for Meredith Willett’s Charley Harper online class. I will share my progress with you when I start it as my bestie and I are stitching this together, so it will keep me on task.

Have you been stitching lots? Have you’ve been zooming with Laura Taylor? I know lots who are and they absolutely love, love, love it! Did I say love? So many of the stitchers have been calling for threads for their canvases and I thank you!

This is the last canvas that I finished and picked up from the framers a few weeks ago. Canvas by Patti Mann and framing by New Creations Picture Framing. I have never had trouble with my beads moving and this is one time I should’ve run a line of beading thread up through the lines of beads. Someday I will need to take it apart and fix it, but for now it’s figuring out where it will hang.

The kids were absolutely entrenched in their kitty tv this morning. They stayed here quite a while and I should’ve videoed them as they were quite entertaining!

Miss Meow insists on laying on the IPad when she joins me on the couch. I wonder if it’s the warmth of the iPad or a way to get my attention?

Mooch loves his ripple rug which was a gift from a dear friend. It brings them many hours of enjoyment, well actually all of us! who am I kidding?

I’ve been watching many hours of playoff baseball. I will admit that I am disappointed that the Padres were eliminated so quickly, but really enjoying watching other teams play at PetCo Park, listening to their announcers speak highly of the city, our team and the ballpark. I will be rooting for the Rays since they’ve never won a World Series.

Stay healthy and keep on stitching!

  1. Hi, Vicky, it’s nice to see you and your kids back 😊

    I wanted to ask a question about your beading: when you say you should have run a line of beading thread up your rows of beads, do you mean in the lettering? What kind of “thread” would you have used? I’m working on the Sew Much Fun hearts and there are some long lines of beading. My beading seems to be very tight but you never know what the future will bring and you’ve got me thinking about stabilizing it. Interested in your opinion,


    • Thanks Joanne! Yes I would’ve used my beading thread to go straight up the row of beads. I heard someone working on that Sew Much Fun canvas did the long black lines by stringing and couching them. Maybe Japanese beading style?!

  2. Yes, I have missed your posts and the kitty pictures.
    I too have been in a real stitching slump. I have been quilting, and sewing lots and lots of masks, but haven’t touched a canvas since a May zoom class with Suzie.
    Have fun in your class / and do photos! I live Charlie Harpers art work.
