My Heart is in this one--ready, set, GO

I had a little creative block there for awhile and alittle stitchitis going. Today I finally got so much rest, I finally felt the strong feeling that this is the one where my heart is at this point in my journey.

One of Body Guard's favorite sayings probably had something to do with picking this one.
+ the beautiful selection of Crescent Colors Cottons to interweave through the Weeks Linen linen.

My Needlework 4 System is loaded. I'm ready for the weekend ahead. This and only this will have my attention.....Scouts HonorXXX

So stay tuned throughout this rainey weekend for some beautiful colors to go on this:

Remember those pretty CC floss I ordered this week. Well, they go with this sampler, a Jane Austen design by The Sampler Girl.

They are bagged with scissors and needlebook.

No need to put in a tote for lunchtime stitching. This week is too busy.
I would have all kinds of colors of orts on my labcoat.

This is ready when I am. It's rest here.
And it's a serious one. One I can relate to alot. One I have passion in ~~~home.
There's no place like home....just ask Body Guard!  He'll tell  you rather quickly and solemnly this week.
Ask me and I'll click my heels twice while saying it.

And this beautiful 32 ct Weeks linen, named LINEN
will be the foundation of a beautiful sampler.

Now I think it may be time to go to bed?  Oh, man it's only 12:30am.........LOL
no, really, got to get some beauty sleep for another grueling day.
But Fridays are really always beautiful, because I heart weekends like no other.

Take care and till later,
don't let the bed bugs bite


  1. I love this pattern! Very nice. I notice you stitch with a stand? Is that the secret to stitching fast? I've been stitching in hand and I am so very slow! Too many projects, not enough time :) Have a great and restful weekend. BTW, I love the picture of sunrise from your back porch. Your home and surroundings are beautiful, but I'm too much of a sissy to live where there are snakes that close to home!

  2. Enjoy your Friday as it is soon to be your time to click your heels.
    Be always in stitches

  3. I just finished stitching this one, and now have to teach myself how to do that edging. It is a great piece, fun to do. Pic on my blog.


  4. I did that one when it came out in The Gift of Stitching a couple of years ago. I used DMC. I have not gotten it framed yet, but it is really beautiful and I love it! Happy Stitching!

  5. I have this one in my stash as well. I can't wait to see your progress. It just might move me to pick this one up as well.
    Good Luck.

  6. I have this pattern all kitted up and have really wanted to do it. I can't wait to see your progress.

  7. You stitch such beautiful pieces. I also like The Sampler Girl. I am stitching Tea with Jane Austen. I noticed that you had already stitched it. Are you having trouble posting to your blog? I am having trouble seeing my pictures when I upload them.

  8. I also have this chart and purchased it because I love (and believe) the saying. I wish I could stitch it with you, but I am up to my neck in ornaments for Christmas. Besides, I would still be stitching away and you would already have it hanging on the wall ;) I will just have to settle for enjoying your progress (and move this chart up in my rotation). Hope you and BG are enjoying the comforts of home this weekend.

  9. It looks nice, I want to see your progress in a bit, so I followed your blog.
