the slow stitcher

A little bit of stitching…

…and a whole lot of stashing. Horror of horrors, the last time I posted a picture of my stitching was June 18! Gosh, that’s three whole weeks ago! That’s how busy I’ve been with Needle Little Love. Oh yeah, and my mail art exchange too, which I’ll share pictures of once I receive word that it’s arrived safely.

Anyway, here is a tiny bit of progress on my Quaker Friendship Sampler.

Quaker Friendship Sampler WIP

Seriously, it’s such an easy stitch, I should be making more progress than this. But oh well, by the time I get both the kids down and sort out work stuff, I’m pretty much whacked and can’t stay up for more than an hour. Matter of fact, I’m feeling sleepy now and it’s only just past midnight…

I do, however, have energy to stash! LOL. Here are some fabrics that I’ve collected over the past week. I discovered a store that sells lovely Japanese patchwork fabrics and went a bit crazy…

Yummy fabrics

The replacement biscornu which Carissa stitched for me because we all thought the first one went AWOL also arrived. It’s simply lovely. I love anything red, so this is perfect and such a beautiful companion to the first one too!

Replacement biscornu from Carissa B.

Well, that’s all for now. Oh, if you haven’t been checking Needle Little Love lately, I’m having a promotion for the month of July. Spend S$120 (that’s about US$79) before shipping and get a skein of Belle Soie silk of your choice free! Refer a friend and get a free skein too when they spend S$50 (about US$33) in a single receipt. Visit the store!

  8. Hi Jean!

    Been sick and am only now catching up on my blog rounds… Nice to know that you and the gang are doing well! I’ve started cross stitch too! And so has my 6-year-old :)

    Love those fabrics… is this an online store or a store in Singapore? (Do I really want to know??? LOL… You know, I’ve been making dollies – they all turned out wonky!!)
