Weekly Stitching

I hope everyone has had a great week and got lots of stitching time in.

I started the second Advent Animal by Brookes Books.

I worked mostly on Save the Stitches by Blackwork Journey. I was very intimidated by this piece as I had never done a piece that was primarily blackwork but I love this piece. I have barely put it down over this past week. The pattern is free and the site has several other great freebies as well. I have plans of doing a couple of the others once this one is completed.

My plans this week include a new start! I joined an event through Stitch Maynia on facebook where you start a new project on the 17th of each month. I am still contemplating what it will be but I am thinking it might be a Christmas one. I should also have some haul to show later in the week. I ordered some things last year and they have now been shipped and set for delivery so I am hoping they will be here tomorrow. I am very excited to share those. I hope you all have a great week!


  1. Your Save the Stitches piece is already gorgeous, Laura. You are off to a good start on the Brooks Book Advent Animal. I look forward to seeing what your new start will be on the 17th. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Robin! I can't seem to decide on the start. I might just put a couple in a box and close my eyes and grab one.

  2. Save the Stitches is one of my favorites <3
