Small projects

Life has been busy but I need to sew every day, even if it's just for ten minutes. No backing for my quilt yet so I haven't been able to start hand quilting. In fact, I haven't been working on quilts at all........I'm waiting for inspiration to strike and help me decide what to do next. So sock knitting and small projects have been occupying me.

A little bit of cross stitch, over half way now.
 
 I finished this pair of socks for my big sisters birthday......they were hard to part with.
 
And have started a new pair.....
 

And made a small boxy pouch just to carry my sock knitting. Great tutorial from Pink Stitches.
 

My blog has been a bit quiet of late, but I notice it will be five years old in August. Might need to find a little something for a giveaway.

Happy weekend.

  8. That cross stitch pice is astounding! A sock pattern in circular needles. Maybe I can handle that! I tried four needles and didn't get very far! Link?

  12. Your cross stitch is beautiful. I'm working on a red and white design too but not nearly as intricate as yours. Love the socks and the pouch.

  13. Your blog may have been quiet, but I've been following what you've been working on on IG. Your stitchery is incredible. And you're right, just a few minutes a day can definitely add up.

  14. Lots of loveliness there Susan....knitting socks seems to be the thing to do...so many pics all over blogs and IG...sadly I am merely an observer when it comes to knitting...definitely.not a skill I have been able to master! Love your cross stitch! I try and manage a little stitching every day...have been known to fall asleep mid-stitch!

  16. Cross stitch is so beyond me...your piece looks like something seen in a museum - so gorgeous! Love your knitting box and the fabric is adorable. I just bought some hand dyed yarn & needles to try making socks...a new challenge.

  23. Don't know if this need to stitch/sew/knit something every day is a good or bad thing - but so many of us go through the same experience. So much loveliness coming up on your blog and IG feed.
