Monday's Mail

I've been rather fortunate lately to be the winning recipient of not one but two giveaways! They both arrived in Monday's mail.
First up is my winning chart from Sherry. She has been cleaning up her stash and giving away some gently used charts. This one has been on my list and I was thrilled to receive it! Thank you so much Sherry!

Next are my winning charts from Kaye. Kaye and I are members of the Random Acts of Stitching Kindness blog. I was gifted by this RAK. Being a cat lover it was absolutely perfect! Look at the pretty card she tucked in the package. Love it! Thank you Kaye!

I can't seem to make up my mind as to a new start so I've continued to work on A Wicked Plant. It's really coming along and I'm enjoying it a lot. I'm stitching this on PTP Ancient linen and it's perfect for a Halloween stitch. The grays do show up much better in person. Pictures never seem to get the colours right.

I have some questions regarding the starting point for my Torah stitch so it has been put on hold for now. The contact person in our area for this project  will be joining our Tuesday group in a week so I will wait to start this until after I've checked some things with her.

I really need to get moving on another project though. A Wicked Plant won't take me all that long to finish. In fact it could be done before I leave for my holidays. I need to have another project or two waiting in the wings to pack for my dockside stitching in Muskoka. I should be starting some of the other projects on my WIPocalypse list but none of them is calling to me right now. After all, that list is just a guideline. I tend to stitch whatever and wherever my mood takes me.  After completing Wicked I only have Paradis Perdu remaining on my list of incompletes and I've stitched many other projects up until now. I'm pretty pleased with what I've accomplished. I'll have another quick post tomorrow with my Ornament SAL photo too.

I hope you all have found a few quiet moments for stitching. We all need some time to ourselves and what better way to occupy that time than with needle in hand?


  1. Lucky lady they are lovely charts :-)

  2. thank you, thank you, thank you! I have a piece of that fabric which I got for a Mirabilia but the fabric turned out to be too small. I've been wondering what to use it for... well I have a Barbara Ana Halloween chart... not the one you have it's called October 31st I think? It will be a perfect match :)

  3. Aren't you lucky!

    I did sign up for the Torah project. Thank you so much for posting about it.

  4. Great charts Lynn! I wholeheartedly agree with you about finding time to stitch too :)

  5. Lovely charts! A Wicked Plant is looking amazing, I love it!

  7. Great stash!

  8. Lovely mail! I love Wicked Plant! Such a fun stitch.

  9. Lynn, I love how Wicked Plant is looking. I wish I had paid attention to the linen before so that I could've gotten it via the PTP sale last week!

    Congratulations on winning not one but two sets of goodies!

  10. Congrats on all of your wins!
