Stitching

Very little has been going on with me, mostly feeling tired and not much sewing. I've stitched a little with redwork and Gail's new BOM, which is turning out to be a sweet stitchery, I can't wait until the next months block comes out. The redwork cats is something that's been on my list for a long time....finally got them stitched.

We haven't had any new snow for a couple of weeks but the ground is still covered in the white stuff even with having a bit of rain. We've had the strangest weather, the last week has been the thickest fog all day long, a person could only see about a half block away and it stayed that way all day long....I hope the sun will be out today or I might start feeling that sadness one gets without the sun or maybe that's why I've been feeling so tired, whatever it is I sure hope it passes soon.

I hope you've had time for needle and thread, thanks for stopping by.

Not much stitchin going on here - but I hope to get to it this week.
I love yours! Lots of snow here today. I am glad my SUV sits high - you can hardly see around corners now!!

Kim said...

Mmmm, very pretty stitchery, Wendy. I have been sewing, staying busy, trying not to think about the bitter cold weather. Really, this is my time to sew and quilt, so it's all good until I need to head out of the garage. Yikes!

Oh I love the stitcheries! Especially the tea dyed look ones! Hope when our blocks start showing up you cheer up - it is the weather. I was kind of out of it, but now that we have sun i'm feeling much chipper!

Christine said...

Very nice!! I love the snowflake background for the BOM stitchery. Do you know what line it's from?
Thanks for any help!

Hope it will get you to feel a little bit better!!

Beth said...

Love your little redwork cats pictures, especially the one with the girl!

Yucky winter weather makes it hard to do any stitching. I make myself just go to my sewing room and tidy up (which it always seems to need) and next thing you know an hour or more has gone by and I've been productive.

Love your stitcheries, they are adorable!

Quilt Hollow said...

CA-uuuuuuuuuuuute!!!! Love those!!

Anne said...

Love, love, love the little cat stitcheries. So darn cute. Hang in there....spring is right around the corner. My DD is very affected by dreary weather so I understand where you're coming from.

Needled Mom said...

I really do not like that feeling one experiences when the sun does not shine. Hope yours shines soon.

Carol said...

Look at those cute cats...I love the background of you Gail Pan block.

Dawn said...

All too cute!! Your work is beautiful!

Jackie said...

Your stitcheries are terrific. I have downloaded Gail's BOM, but not yet started. The cat stitcheries are wonderful. We just got 6 inches of snow today, I would be glad to send you some, I have had enough already.

Darlene said...

Oh so cute! Love everything, as usual. Hang in there you'll see the sun soon. We see way too much of the sun.

I too have felt quite weary lately and sometimes when I think of picking up my quilting...well, the energy just isn't there...which is really disappointing since I'm in the middle of hand stitching two, one for each grandaughter and I just bought material to get going on one for a friend who is marrying in June! sigh....

T said...

The stitcheries look wonderful - I particularly like the background you used for Gail's block.

I'm still trying to catch up on last year's Capricorn Quilts stitcheries, trying to not get behind on Ellie's Calendar blocks, and just starting Lynn's Noah's Ark!

Gail's are going into a folder on the hard drive for when... uh... I don't have anything else that needs to be done! LOL!

Your doing beautiful stitcheries even though not feeling the brightest! Do you know, I really believe weather affects us more than we realize! We have quite a short summer here in Perth and I said to DH last night'this doesn't seem right for Perth to be hot'. He wholeheartedly agreed - I can't wait for the cooler weather - the heat is making me lethargic! It will all pass, so chin up!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Christine said...

The cats are adorable! You always come up with the cutest patterns. I've not gotten much sewing done, but I finished my sewing room and now I'm ready to rock-n-roll.

Judy said...

Oh I hope you feel better soon Wendy. Hubby suffers from SAD and it's awful this time of year for him not being able to sit on the balcony in the sun. if you don't feel better soon, have you doc check you thyroid level. That's what gives you the juice to move every day! Feel better!

bluebird-lyn said...

Hi Wendy, hope you are feeling brighter soon.I find the weather depressing if the sun is not shining.Love your Stitchery's Regards Lyn

Christine said...

Hope you get some sun and feel better soon. I LOVE your cat stitcheries. Would you mind telling me the name of the pattern and the designer?
Your BOM looks good too. I enjoyed stitching mine.

I love your blocks! You are such a great stitcher Wendy :o) Love your taste!

Cheryl said...

Your handwork is wonderful!! Hope you get some sun to perk you up.

Red Geranium Cottage said...

How cute are they?? I love the stitchery blocks Wendy. I think I have those patterns somewhere. LOL Yes I said somewhere.

sewkalico said...

Hope you feel brighter soon! At least the days are getting longer and soon there will be spring and summer to look forward to.
Lovely stitching!

Lynn said...

Sending some warm sunny wishes your way. We here are excited about possibly getting 2 inches of snow tommorrow! That's a big deal for us. But then it must all go away quickly. I keep thinking about 6 weeks and it will be spring. Your stitching is cute - love the cats.

Karen said...

Love the cat stitchery and so many wonderful free stichery BOM's to make.

em's scrapbag said...

Cute stitcheries. Hope the sun comes out soon and breathes it's life into you. It can be hard when the sun goes into hiding.

Carole said...

What lovely blocks! I've been debabing about BOMs! I still want to stich out those Polka dot ladies! So many things I want to make - so many UFOs! Hugs!

Amy said...

Wendy,
Your cat blocks are adorable as usual.........Lack of sun causes winter duldrums.I have depression problems,so I know how you feel.Keep on stitching and get alot of naps,it helps.

Libby said...

Such darling blocks you are working on *S*
We are having unusual weather, too. I think that it should be going back to a more normal pattern in the next couple of days . . . . I hope it does the same for you.

Catherine said...

Cheer up Wendy, you sound very glum! Do something special for just you!! I love your red-work cats, they are so cute!!
Happy Days, Cathyx

Ginger Patches said...

Those cat stitcheries are adorable! I hope you get some sunshine soon...wish I could send you some :)

Mary A said...

Hi Wendy,
Take care of yourself. Love the cat stitchery. Please tell us who the pattern designer is. Mary

yellowfarmhouse said...

Hi Wendy - I understand that feeling - for me it's feeling down in the dumps and January always seems to bring it to me and I've got them right now also. Our weather has been so strange as well - and it's been a loooong winter so far - that sure doesn't help. Hope your feeling up to snuff real soon. Your stitcheries are darling - so cute.

Hugs - Karen

The redwork blocks are so cute. I love your background fabric on your "love" stitchery. Hopefully the sunshine will make you feel better.

Judy S. said...

Love the redwork cats, Wendy. Whose pattern is that? I too am intrigued by both BOMs you have pictured but haven't started either yet. We are also having fog here in WA, so it must cover a pretty big area....very tiresome but better than snow in my book, that's for sure!

Yvette said...

I just love the redwork cats. Funny, I own dogs. HA HA! Can you tell me where you got the patterns?

Sherry said...

I just love your stitcheries. They are just so cute. Brr cold here too & they are calling for snow & ice for us by Monday! Glad I have lots of quilty things to keep me busy. Stay warm!

Kathy Wagner said...

Adorable stitcheries...makes me inspired to get going on some of mine.

Chocolate Cat said...

I love those redwork cat stitcheries! They are just so cute!

Mary A said...

I have loved these cat stitcheries since you first posted them. Anyone who lives with cats would really appreciate them. Who is the designer? Thanks!
