Stitched by Me Blocks 1 and 2

I have joined the Stitched by Me Group hosted by Nicola Foreman Quilts.  I started this quilt in 2012 but it has been sitting for awhile.  This group has me excited again and I have picked it up to get it finished this time.  Here is block 1 and the beginning of block 2.  My colours are darker than the kit available now from Lynette Anderson.  I got my kit when the BOM first came out.

Sock knitting

These socks are so pretty. I love the way the colours are working up. Lots of time to knit and stitch right now!

Broken Ankle, Not much sewing

Unfortunately, I have fractured my ankle and am in a cast for another 3 weeks!  Not much sewing going on here.  I am lucky that I have finished August of my Nature's Journey quilt.  I did manage to sew on one border yesterday with my left foot!  I can't drive either so have been very housebound.  I am lucky to have my Mom here helping me and I am not that steady on crutches.  My good friend, Holly, gave me a walker to use which really helps me scoot around the kitchen.  I cannot manage stairs very well though!  Lots of hand stitching and knitting of socks going on so that's a good thing!

Stitch-A-Long 2015

Wow I can't believe I have not posted in 2 years! a lot has happened since then.  I lost my job which was very hard, but am on the way to getting back on my feet hopefully into a job that I love.  I am so excited to start this new Stitch-A-Long.  I completed the ones for A Gardner's Journal, Tis the Season and SKoW.  They are so much fun and stitching has helped me through a lot of hard times.  So excited to begin this new stitching journey!

SAL/Betsy's Closest

i finished my January project for the Stitch-A-Long.  Thread catchers - one for me and one for my mom for her birthday.  They are so cute and so quick to make!

I also finished stitching my Betsy's Closet and finished the quilting and binding a couple days ago.  I am going to hang it in my sewing room!
