Saturday Already?!

It is amazing to me how fast the weeks have been going, especially in the fall, when Holidays are fast approaching. I have seen some counters for the days left until Christmas. Really?! I remember in school, wondering how many days we had left before summer, and then summer was over in 5 minutes. Then we were back in school already. My mother always said, time only goes faster when we get older. She was right. Yes mom-- you were right-- again!! :)

I finished up Know Ye last night. What a fun little stitch. The pictures are crazy, showing 2 colors of the linen. I think that the top one looks closer to the Vintage Pear I chose. I might need to take photography lessons. I am looking to just play with stash this weekend, take it easy and let my poor fingers heal from all the stabs I give myself over and over again- in the same spot :(. Make piles and lists, and move stuff around. I am looking forward to this for sure.

Its a beautiful day, I think a walk in an order to. Hope everyone has a very relaxing weekend. Until next week!


  1. Woo! Congrats on the finish, it's fantastic! I hear you on the holes in your fingers. Have you tried using liquid bandaid? My friend brought me over some from the US & it's been a godsend. I just paint a few layers over the hole and it heals then on its own, but I can still stitch.

    I can't wait to see what's next for your speedy needles. :)

  2. Wonderful! Congratulations on finishing this so quickly. It is a lovely piece - I do love the A&E's.

    Enjoy your weekend and rest those weary fingers.

  3. What a beautiful finish - as always!! :) Can't wait to see what you pull out next!

  4. Gorgeous finish! Congrats.

    I don't even want to think about Christmas, not a present bought or made yet.

  5. Really gorgeous progress on a great project! :D Hope that finger gets all rested up!

  6. Wow, congrats on the finish!! That was a quick one! I just love A&E pieces and I'm going to have to add this to my list to stitch!!

  7. Fantastic finish! I also love all things A&E and this is a terrific piece.

  8. Ok, that's it. I have to see if I have this one kitted up or not. I have to stitch it!!!! Yours is gorgeous!

  9. Your Know Ye is very pretty. I really like this design - it's charming.

    Can't wait to see what you start next.

  10. Fabulous finish, it looks great

  11. I love Know Ye. I always want to cross stitch when I read your blog. Perhaps I will start a project after Xmas. Too much quilting to do for now.


  12. Love your finish - what a pretty one! I had a weekend of playing in my stash too!

  13. Hello what a lovely blog..

    just stumbled across it whilst doing some work for an IT course i'm doing and noticed the Adam and Eve link..

    I was wondering if you've ever seen Moira Blackburns work?

    seems to me it might be something you would like.

    I notice a few people she admires on your page

    here's a link to her Adam and Eve

    All the best Kim
