Weekend Update

Hello all, this has been one of those freak weeks where I’ve had work and after-work commitments every day and night–including tonight and tomorrow! Now, most of these have been fun things, and things I volunteered to do, but I am exhausted. But, I didn’t want a week to slip by without a single update, so here we go. :)

I haven’t stitched at all this week, but I have made some progress on “All Shall Be Well” since my last update here. I’m only about halfway done, but it is already getting hard to photograph because it is getting so big. Ha! Here’s where I am at now:


I love how it is turning out, even if it is a more labor-intensive project than I had planned.

I also want to share this fab gift I received from my sister-in-law. She recently went to Paris and visited the Maison Sajou embroidery shop while there, and she sent me this beautiful assortment of thread cards. They are so unique! I love the different shapes and designs!


Finally, I wouldn’t post without including some links for your weekend reading! Here’s my roundup of interesting book, art, and needlework news for the week:

This week I was heartbroken to learn of the death of musician Chris Cornell. Here he is just last month on CBS singing “The Promise.” He was donating all of the proceeds from the single to refugee relief efforts. RIP Chris.

    Those weeks can be frustrating when you have something crafty you want to do! I love Sojou – I have some of those winders too – just divine aren’t they?!

      Yes, even though I can’t really complain because I got to do other fun things this week. But sometimes I also want to just stay home and stitch! ☺
