Welcome to Week 3 of the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge. It’s show time and this week I’m on the road at the Stitches East event in Hartford, CT. I’ll be busy setting up our booth with the rest of the Red Heart Team, but I always have a project with me for those rare down moments. I was thinking I would be too tired to crochet tonight, but I have my second wind … “me” time. I’ll join the other stitchers in the lounge while we all work on our projects.

Everyone is enjoying the pictures of your Dusty Snowflake Throws. You’re all doing a wonderful job. Some of you already have it completed…you know who you are. Bravo to you! They are beautiful! How many of you decided to use different colors from the pattern? I chose to use different colors. Having a house full of men, they rather liked this combination. Now I can’t wait to see how it comes out myself. Here’s a picture of the first few motifs… I’ll share more as we go along each week.

Wednesday! … it’s time for Week 2 of our Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge. The weather has been cool and rainy here for the past few days, fall is beginning to show itself, holidays will be here before you know it and I have many projects to stitch up. I always have multiple projects in the works and usually find the time to stitch each day, but Wednesday is my night off to do what I want and for a few hours we can talk about what we are working on.

Grab those hooks and let’s get started on our Dusty Snowflake Throw Crochet Along. We haven’t set a deadline or completion date on this project, wanting you to work at your own pace. There will be lots of help along the way, so if you have questions, just ask and someone will help you understand. Watch the How-To videos for the different techniques on completing each motif, as well as, a How-To video for joining the motifs as you go. Tell us about your progress; and you can show us pictures of your progress each week on our Facebook page.
Back by popular demand …it’s the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge. Welcome to Season 2 of the WNSC. Once again, this is the one night I take for myself to relax, watch TV and sometimes just listen to music while I’m stitching. My day to day schedule doesn’t always allow me to stitch every day. Wednesday is a great day for me, it’s the middle of the week and great day for me to catch up on previously recorded shows or listen to music…a pleasant way to split up the week. I’m making things for Christmas gifts and this is a great way to get started on those projects. I also have a new great grandson who will be getting a few new sweaters this winter. For me, Wednesday night is gift making night. Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 2”

Over the past month, the temperatures have been pushing upward of 80’s – 90’s in the south. Only a very few cool days have come and gone, little time to sit outside and stitch. It’s finally another cooler day today and beautiful weather to work outside…stitching that is. After staring at the computer screen for several days, I’m giving myself a break from the screen for next few hours and I’m going to enjoy this beautiful afternoon working on a fall jacket design (for myself) and I’m doing it outside. I have a swing at the back of my garden, grape vines and trees offer shade and today it’s calling me to come over, sit down and stitch for a while. Only natures music and a mild breeze. And the grape vines are full of grapes, so I’ve picked myself a healthy snack to eat while stitching. Continue reading “How’s Knitting or Crochet Helping You This Week?”
