More Cross Stitching Progress from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Since about all I did yesterday was cross stitch, there’s not much else to talk about! I did take a nap but there was nothing blogworthy about that. One thing quite newsworthy is that Boots can open the bedroom door! I’m hoping it was an accident and not something he can really do but we...

Another Stitching Report from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I won’t show the progress on this every day but here’s what I have done as of last night. It’s actually straight. It’s amazing how badly I can screw up a photo. I’ve changed up some of the colors. The “must be created” was supposed to be a goldy tan but I wanted it to...

All The Fancy Stuff from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday as I was getting ready to start cross stitching, I looked at all the “stuff” that goes along with cross stitching these days and for some reason, it reminded me of Easter when I was a kid. We’d get a fancy new dress, a bonnet, new shoes, sometimes a purse. I remember from a...

A Few More Cross Stitch Charts from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday I talked about my credit card having been compromised and I was happy that I didn’t “need” to be ordering anything til the new card gets here because if I use the card Vince and I share . . then there’s a whole lot of answering to do. But . . I wasn’t so...

Cross Stitch Math from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Watching flosstubes, I have learned so much about ways to finish cross stitched pieces. I’m hoping to do a little planning before starting so I can hopefully make the chart fit the size I need it to be. One thing I don’t want to have to do is buy custom frames for everything. I mean...

Walking and Chewing Gum from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I seem to have lost my ability to do more than one thing at a time. This shawl I’m working on is the easiest thing ever but yet it isn’t boring. I figured I could watch flosstubes and knit, right? Wrong! I have ripped back more than I’ve gone forward. A lot of it is...

New Arrivals from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

These things didn’t all arrive yesterday. They have been trickling in for the past week or two. I had been stacking it all on the table because I needed to go through the kits and put the fabric with the projects it was purchased for but here’s what I had to put away yesterday. The...

Hands Across the Sea Samplers from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It was reproduction samplers that first caught my attention and made me want to start cross stitching again. Hands Across the Sea Samplers has the most gorgeous reproduction samplers. I have put Ann Webb in my cart 100 times in the last two weeks but so far, I haven’t bought it. It’s a pdf and...

2021 Cross Stitching Plans from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Cross stitching is so new to me that I’m not feeling confident making specific plans for 2021 (like I ever stick with those plans anyway!) There are several projects I REALLY want to do. Ann Webb – I don’t know why I can’t stop thinking about this one. I think it’s the goats. Farmhouse Christmas...

Cross Stitching Frames from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ve been using an 8″ Q-Snap frame and while I’m sure it’s great for small pieces, that frame and I are not bonding! First, I’ve heard the little snap on things will loosen up but let me tell you . . I about need a power tool of some kind to get them off right...

The Cat Border from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I must be the slowest cross stitcher! I’ve been thinking I’d finish this border for four days! It’s straight . . it’s just sitting on my lap. It isn’t perfect but it’s the first cross stitching I’ve done in at least 30 years so I’m happy with it. The fabric is 25 count Lugana. The...

Plans for January 2 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I should have taken a before and after picture yesterday but having a dining room table that seats eight means I can make one heck of a mess on that table! A few days ago I was trying to decide what I was going to make for my New Year’s Day start and . ....

Cross Stitching the Cats from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This afternoon I started cross stitching the Playful Cats chart. The pattern sample used 32 count but I’m using 25 count. The fabric calculator said to use three strands over 2 threads. I used three strands but thought it looked too thick. I skipped over a few stitches and started using two strands over the...

Cross Stitch Fabric from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Back when I cross stitched years and years ago, we basically had a choice of white or black Aida. Today there are so many choices nowadays. As we all know from years of ordering online, it’s often hard to judge colors online. The little fat quarters of fabric are fairly inexpensive. The lugana is $3...
