Thursday Already

Is it me, or is this week just flying by? Wow, Seems like it was just Sunday. I have another motif done; the newest one I wanted to get out of the way, to make sure my outer edge matched up. It did, thank goodness, it is the worst when you are just about there and you are 1 off!!! I have felt this pain too many times before!!! I love seeing everyones progress in Bea, it is so inspiring!!!

Few have asked about the floss organizing... I have posted earlier some pics of this system (please take a look, the pics do a better job explaining), and I will post more pics next week of my progress. Winding on cards, or using the floss away bags is a great way to store your threads, but I think this way is fabulous, because it is a file system, and you can easily see what you have by going through it. Pulling threads for projects has never been easier, and I know immediately if I have the color or not. I also like seeing the thread out of the baggies, to get a true color and it is a great way for floss tossing on your fabric! I couldnt be happier. Once it is organized on the keepers your hard work is over. I dont have to waste time looking through all the threads to find a color, even though it is alphabetical.

Some one also asked about the Whitework Sampler. The Needle's Prayse "The English Whitework Sampler" is one of there newest designs, and it is GORGEOUS. Alot of specialty stitches and pulled work. I look forward to this piece as well. There are several stitchers that have completed this piece and they are all amazing!!!

Have a great day everyone!


  1. Bea is looking great! Glad it lined up like it was supposed to. That is one of the worst feelings in the world to get so far and then find you are one off.

  2. No, it's not you - this week does seem to be flying along at the speed of sound. I do love how Bea is coming along. I think I may have mentioned it before, but I do like the color that you're using for this.

    Can't wait to see more of your pictures of the floss system. I'm still trudging along on mine - maybe two rails full - not much, but I totally agree with you that this is a fabulous system. So much easier than having to dig around for the bags. Now you can do a floss toss with no effort at all. I'm loving it and I haven't even finished getting all the threads on it!!

    And Needle's Prayse - I love her things. I can't wait to see progress on what you start.

  3. That is a big motif! And yes, the week has zoomed, I have been busier then usual, seems I have run around all weekend. And traveling this weekend, so I am kind of looking forward to next week. I know wishing my life away!

    I think your system of storing fibers is fantastic! For me though, just the thought of the time it would take to do mine over, is exhausting!!

  4. I seriously think that time is flying by faster as I get older. I can't believe it's August 21 already. Phew.

    Fabulous progress on Bea! I love it when things like up the way they should--talk about a big sigh of relief!

  5. The past few months have gone by too quickly for me. Bea is looking wonderful

  6. Thanks for the explanation on organizing floss! I'm always looking for a better way. I've outgrown my plastic box/paper bobbin system.

  7. I love visiting your blog and seeing all your work. Very inspiring!!
