Heroic Belfast

I love Americana stitching. I especially love the Americana patterns by Little House Needleworks. They work up quickly and look so cute and cozy.

I recently discovered Heroic Belfast by Picture This Plus and fell in love with it instantly. Patriotic pieces look amazing on it. I want to add more to my stash because it's one of those fabrics I don't ever want to be without, you know what I mean? I'd like to see how non-Americana patterns look on it, too. I bet something primitive would be nice on it, or maybe something floral. I don't know. I need to look into this. 😊

In the Bag

 I've been on a bag-making kick lately, using Vonna's awesome tutorial on YouTube. I love how beginner friendly Vonna's tutorial is, and how she walks you through every step of the process. I've made nine or ten for myself, I think, in various sizes. I need more, though, to house all my WIPs!

I love making them and, even more, I love using them. It's quite a step up from the plastic bags I was using.

I also made one in which to store our atlas and maps. It was actually my husband's idea to do so, and I was more than happy to accommodate his wish. 

Yes, I definitely see more project bags in my future.

Never Too Early

Noel Jingles Flip-it by Lizzie*Kate

It's never too early to get started on Christmas stitching, right? 

It took me a mere day, day-and-a-half to stitch this cute Lizzie*Kate piece. I love it! I don't quite know how I will finish it, though. I might make it into an ornament. A tiny frame would be cute, too. I probably won't make a decision until December. Let's just hope it's this December....

Teeny Tiny Turkey

I can't believe how much I love stitching on 40-ct linen.

Look at how tiny that turkey is! How cute is he, seriously?!?

He is so tiny and sweet. Pictures can't convey just how small he is. And how sweet he is. :) 

If you follow me on Instagram (stitchystitcherson), then you've perhaps seen this teeny tiny turkey's progression. I loved stitching him. He was a quick, fun stitch, and is a great addition to my woefully small collection of Thanksgiving finishes.

Gobble gobble!
