Great Stitching Day with Nicole....

Nicole just left for home.... she wanted to get going & hopefully beat anymore bad weather since it seems to have cleared up some at the moment. It's been POURING most of the day. Despite the weather, I had a wonderful time! We have so much in common and of course we both love stitching... bet you can't tell that huh? ;-) I think bouncing some of my ideas off her & getting her feedback helped me to make a decision to try a stitching rotation. I have SO MANY pieces I want to stitch, and so many UFO/WIP's too. I'm going to list (some of) them here & then try & figure out a schedule, but it won't start for a week or so as I am going to finish something I started last night & then I need to stitch an ornament & an emery before I can do anything else. Wish me luck! ;-)

Here are my lists that I'll chose the first rotation from, then I'll pull something else or add something new as I have a finish. I'll likely edit this a dozen times before long! lol

UFO list:

1. Personalized Sampler
2. And A Forest Grew
3. Black Magic (Just Nan)
4. Personalized Quaker
5. The Lord's Prayer (Stoney Creek)

WIP list:
1. Quaker Virtues
2. Ornament Exchange Group (3 to go!)
3. Seasonal Exchange

Want to start list:
1. ABC Lessons (LK)
2. Heaven Doth Ask
3. CiCi's Sewing Box (DT)
4. Be Not Forgetful (My Big Toe)
5. My Earth (SB)

Geez, after typing it all out, I think I've scared myself! LOL

I'll have to look at it for awhile & see which ones I want to stitch first & must add at least a couple of smaller pieces in with the large ones! ;-)

Monday -
Tuesday -
Wednesday - Quaker Virtues
Thursday -
Friday -
Saturday -
Sunday - FREE Day (stitch on whatever I want!)

If anyone has any tips on how to make this easier.... feel free to share! :-)

And sweet Nicole brought me one more thing to add to my list - Just Nan's Bellemeade, kitted with fabric & all the silk threads! She sure knew how to make my day! It's lovely & I can't wait to stitch it! Thank you again Nicole!!

On a serious note, our stithcing friend Terry is in the hospital. She is having some pretty serious problems. Please take a minute to say a prayer for Terry or send positive thoughts her way. I'm sure she would appreciate them. Hopefully she'll soon be better!

Nicole, thanks again for coming today, it was wonderful to see you & I look forward to next time! :-)

Thanks for stopping by & be sure to watch next week. I'll be having some sort of give away for my 2nd year blogging anniversary! :-) Happy stitching!

he list there Amy. I look forward to seeing some progress pictures. My rotation has been going pretty well except there are days I am not sticking to it and just stitching what I want from the WIP's in my bag.

Good luck and my prayers are going out to Terry right now, Hopefully things will get better for her.

Hi Amy! I had a lot of fun too! Can't wait for the next time! I hope you enjoy the kit. I was glad to give it to you - I think it will make a great companion to your Common Ground! I can't wait to see your progress on it (no pressure)! I know you are like me and have a ton of things that need to be stitched. Good luck with figuring out a rotation. Mine has worked out really well for me.

My prayers and thoughts are with Terry and her family. I wish her a very speedy recovery.

Thanks again for a great day! :)
