Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 7

Rain, storms, more rain … sounds dreary doesn’t it?  Its Wednesday … let it rain! Perfect weather for sitting by the fire and stitching today.  I started working on the Dusty Snowflake Throw Crochet Along (CAL) a few weeks ago and began working on it again last night and will continue that tonight – determined to finish before the end of the year.  I call mine Midnight Snowflake Throw.

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 6

Here it is Wednesday again … YEA!!!  I’m out of town today, but I have my yarn, needles & hooks with me.  I’m looking forward to going back to my room, having the evening to myself and just watching TV and stitching away.  I’m currently working on samples for some upcoming videos, but tonight I’m putting that aside and will be working on something quick like a stocking.  Each year about this time I have numerous requests for stockings … I never seem to have enough stockings around.  Not only do I make new ones for friends and family members, I also use them as gift packages, each personalized.  I’m using the Waiting for Santa Stockings crochet pattern, it has 3 sizes of patterns.

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 5

“The country habit has me by the heart!” I saw this written somewhere recently and it stuck with me. As I sit at my computer working on reports, messages, project ideas, research … etc., getting frustrated that not all things aren’t going smoothly, I walk away to think. Living in the South and in the country, I’m able to enjoy the fall while sitting outside just enjoying the view. Part of my work also involves knitting and crocheting, so when I have these *walk away moments* I’m able to enjoy the sounds of nature and fall colors while I sit and stitch.  The country habit has me today!

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 3

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.

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 2, Week 2

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.  Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 2, Week 2”

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 2

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”
