Slow Sunday Stitching

I finished the words of the first part of Jingle and added the green ribbon in the right corner.
Next, I want to fill in all the scattered stars and snowflakes that go on the right side. Then Jingle will be almost halfway done. 

I also attached the fabric to the frame to start "Three Boats". 
I started putting in a grid on the left using a color of floss that isn't in the picture so that I have some sort of reference to work off of. I did the same with "Baker Beach" and found it very helpful. 

I didn't show you all the yarn goodies that I purchased from my local ACMoore store that is going out of business.
I was happy to find the two variegated yarns. I have wanted to make the Which Way Filet blanket for a while and although a solid color is recommended I think the pastel variegated yarn on the upper right is what I want to use for it. The flecked yarn at the bottom will become a sweater and the other variegated yarn just caught my eye.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I want to see if I can complete the snowflakes and stars on Jingle today. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love the yarns you choose! I have some solids chosen for things and wish I had chose variegated instead - I think variegated makes an item more interesting

  2. Your Jingle is looking good, the yarn is perfect for your blanket, so pretty.

  3. Is the embroidery canvas precolored? I have a couple of those and don't know where to begin...That is a pretty boats picture...hugs, Julierose

  4. Is three boats as big a project as baker beach? It looks pretty mammoth! You've picked up some lovely yarn. I like a variegated yarn to work with too. Jingle is looking good!

  5. Great projects! Love the yarn and the sailboat stitchery looks lovely, as does your Jingle project!

  6. Your Jingle project is fun to see as you add each new part! The stars and snowflakes are so sweet!

  7. Cathie: Jingle is such a lovely design, I am looking forward to seeing the finish.
    The Three Boats is a beautiful design, will this one be for your Son? I still remember Baker Beach it was fun seeing your progress and finish.
    The yarn you chose is are pretty colors.


  8. Jingle is gorgeous as is your Header project. I also knit and crochet so love seeing your wool purchases. Happy Crafting!
