Giving Sisters progress and Kitted Up Projects

I've left Mrs. MaGuire's Garden for a bit (nearly done) to work on my Giving Sisters and I'm making good progress. I'm thoroughly enjoying this stitch and have loved this design ever since I saw it.

I kitted up my projects that I bought floss and fabric for while on vacation too! So I thought I'd show those off.


I can't wait to work on all these designs, and I have plenty more kitted up and ready to go as well. I found a great system that works for me using small and large acrylic envelopes to store kitted projects in. I keep the fabric and floss separated in the envelope however, to avoid any bleed that might happen.

I look at all my beautiful stitching supplies and I feel very lucky indeed. I'm a crafter by nature, so I have lots of yarn, beads, and scrap stuff too. My project life book from last year is paused at August. I've yet to do one this year. It's been a hell of a year around here. Some good, some bad. But I feel stuck as I've never felt. Just need to get all my things back on track! Actually completing stitching projects is so huge for me. Staying off facebook certainly helps.

If you are taking time to stop by this blog and are generous enough to leave a comment, thank you. It's no small thing when people take time to notice you and acknowledge what you are doing.


  1. Your kitted up projects look good. I really like the thread colors for BBD's Autumn Bouquet piece. You are making good progress on 'The Giving Sisters' stitch. Have you ever visited Notforgotten Farm? Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Giving Sisters is looking good.
    Love all of your next projects, the flosses and fabrics are all so pretty!
    All have great Fall colors.
    Have a great week!

  3. Great progress on Giving Sisters. It seems to be a fun project.
    Ohhhhhh, so many lovely future projects kitted up. They are all after my taste as well and I could stitch them as well. Enjoy these new projects.

    1. Thanks Brigitte! I really want to start Lady Liberty ASAP!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
