One Thing Leads to Another

Yes. I get distracted in the least bit of way, but while trying to accomplish the laundry, which is so conveniently close to my sewing space, I had this sampler by Little House Needleworks that I finished a very long time ago and it's been

 in a large frame.


Put in a small frame.


 Hung around the basement loosely tossed to the side and so, instead finishing my favorite task of folding clothes...
I decided to ramble through my fat quarters and fabric stash cabinet to find something to randomly cut (without measuring) and get this into another~~~third~~ form, for final presentation.

I don't know what possessed me today to do this. Probably, just filled the need to change something AND the need to accomplish something.

designer Little House Needleworks
from the Proverbs, scripture series
stitched by me in ?????
in a third life now. (it's final stage, promise)
A pillowkeep with some calico fabbie on the back. The linen and the floss as called for in the pattern. (I do remember that!)

I think I like it better this way.

And it sits well on my stitching chair.

Therefore, I've accomplished at least one thing today.

And speaking of one thing leading to another, GUESS what this one is??????

I'll pop it out of my mesh bag that I've been carrying with me, wrinkles and all.....

The linen is 28 count Cameo Pink

and the overdyed floss name is near black but right now, Abbie chewed it up and I can't recall it. :o

However, I love pink, all shades and this very muted cameo pink is lovely for the black thread. I'm dreaming of this framed in black. You may not recognize the pattern because the color is different.

Now I'm going on to other random projects today with my free spirit and restless imagination, intermingling with my logical, common sense, practical, part of the brain for balance.

Welcome to my state of lucidity!


  1. Great finish, love the buttons ! Hope the eyes are better.

  2. Wow! What a great spur of the moment finish. I think the 3rd time is definitely the charm.

  3. What an adorable finish! Love it! Your next project is going to be so pretty. I can't wait to see what you do for a finish. Have a great weekend!

  4. I love your restless spirit! Just look at what you did with it.
    What an adorable project - I love how you turned it from what was to be a framed piece to what is is.

  5. Grats on the finish. It always feels great to accomplish something, even if it's not laundry.

  6. Don't they say "3rd time is a charm"? It sure is in that case.
    Love your new start too.

  7. I love the pillow! And your stitching in progress.....

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one that gets distracted easily when the stitching calls! ;)

    Hop you are feeling better. Take care.

  8. Lovely stitching and the finishing is just perfect for it :-)

  9. Your proverbs new finish looks great. How nice to revive that and have it by your side now. I love pink also, and your current work is looking lovely.

  10. A lovely finish...and 3th time best!

    Back to school? for reading, writing and...of course...stitching

    Got that chart in my stash also.

    greetings from the Netherlands

  11. I love your finish and the buttons are positively adorable.


  12. Love your your little sampler hanging on your chair!! It;s perfect!!! Hope your eyes are doing better-prayers are continuing to you and yours!

  13. Wonderful finish, Jennifer. I love how it looks hanging on your chair.

  14. Guess the third time IS the charm - great job with the LHN finishing and now you can really enjoy it. I also love pink...that new start looks cute. Keep up the good work!

  15. What a great aimless spirit you have! I'd rather do a little finishing then a little stitching than laundry any day!

  16. jennifer, my heart goes out to you. I trust you will come through this rough time and be stronger for it. I hope our paths will cross again. I will miss you, my friend. Love to you and yours. De
