A Miracle - I have a FINISH!

Ok, first things first! I have a freaking FINISH!!!!! It's Pineberry Lane's A Sprig of Holly. Best News? It took me only a week! Now, if you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you'd know just how big a deal this is. I mean big. Real big.

And I dyed my own fabric. I saw a woman do this same color scheme and copied the heck out of it. It was just so pretty on the blue! I think I have my MOJO back! My goodness, it felt so nice  from start to finish.  It's been so long since I finished anything. I would get discouraged over the littlest thing. I needed a quick win to get me back on track. It was wonderful! Still crocheting too. I have a lot of Project Life to catch up on, but I'm doing it!

This won't be the last time I dyed my own fabric. It was fun and easy and oh, the possibilities!

I trust everyone had a lovely Christmas and new year. Our first holiday in our new home was great.


It was cozy and warm inside as we celebrated. Visiting with family and friends, yet still missing what we don't have. I'm not sure about this new normal, but I have no choice. Ever grateful for what I do have however!

Spring is nearly here now. It's hard to believe. I do look forward to the warmth and being able to spend more time outside. I will hopefully be updating soon with a new start!  Until then,


  1. Well done on your finish! I like the color of the fabric you dyed for it. What red did you use for her dress? Your new home looked very festive with the bits of snow, lights and greenery. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hi Robin! I used DMC for all the colors here, and the dress is #355. I was a bit worried, because it looks very dull in person, but came out great! Thanks for your comments! Enjoy your weekend as well!

  2. Sprig of Holly is cute on the blue fabric.
    Glad to see your stitching Mojo is back!
    Your house is beautiful also.

  3. That's such a cute little stitch. And it looks gorgeous on your hand dyed fabric. I love Pineberry Lane designs a lot.

    1. Thanks Brigitte! So much fun. Yes, Pineberry Lane is one of my favorites lately.

  4. Oh, wow, I really like this cross stitch.

  5. Lovely chart and your fabric dying turn out beautifully. Happy stitching!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
