Affirmation from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Once Denise and I made our plans about not buying in 2022, I was 100% committed but as time has gone on . . maybe four days now, I’m getting nervous. What if I see a chart I REALLY want? What if the perfect linen becomes available and it’s a one time thing? I know...

Re-Organizing the Floss from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

After kitting up about 10 projects over the last couple of days, I decided I didn’t like the way my overdyed floss was organized. I had it all in alphabetical order on rings but by brand so if I needed something that started with a “B” in Weeks Dyeworks, I’d have to get the Weeks...

WIPGO from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I kept reading about “WIPGO” in various online cross stitch groups and finally tracked down the WIPGO group. If you’re on FB, they’re easy to find. It seemed confusing to me but last night, because it really sounds like something I would enjoy and help keep me on track, I watched the youtube video by...

Sometimes, I have to sit down and laugh at myself! Back in July , 2021, I ordered 7 picture frames. These blog posts show what I ordered. Part One and Part Two. Of those seven frames ordered five months ago, only one piece has been stitched. One frame is for A Changed World which is...

No Buy 2022 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ve been thinking about this for several weeks so it isn’t a spur of the moment decision. I’ve decided that in 2022, I will buy ZERO charts, fabric, project bags. The only things I will allow myself to buy are floss and needles. I will buy floss if I need something for a chart and...

First Thanksgiving Progress from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There wasn’t much stitching time yesterday but what little I stitched, there was no ripping out. I finished the blue stars on the left of the top bunting row. I added the last of the humps on both ends of the top border row. There is more fill in work on that border. It’s not...

Chromebook vs. Tablet for Pattern Keeper from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Once upon a time I had a Samsung Galaxy tablet that I loved. It got to where the battery wouldn’t hold a charge so Vince was going to open it up and replace the battery. I kept saying “No! I don’t want to do that. I can use it while it’s plugged in.” I will...

First Thanksgiving Progress from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Maybe “progress” isn’t the right word. Don’t judge . . please! (1) I know many of you would have given up on this project but I am determined to finish at least some part of it. (2) No doubt, some of you are going to think I’m nuts for ripping that top border all the...

Gorgeous Cardinal Chart from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This is why I cannot plan ahead with my stitching (but I will still plan ahead, knowing I will not stick with the plan). Last night I saw this Cardinal chart on the Owl Forest (designer of New Year Sampler) website. I told myself I was going to think about it during the night and...

More Frustration With This Chart from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As you all know, I make my share of mistakes but at this point, well . . I’ll just not say what I think. It’s time to either accept that I’m going to have to check and double check every stitch I make or chalk it up to an expensive experience and throw it all...

First Thanksgiving from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This project is not going well. My first thought is to put it away and forget about it but I feel like since I purchased both the paper chart AND the pdf, and I think I will really love it if I can get it finished, I should try to make it work. How do...

Framing from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I was going to write that this would be a day of framing but if I get two or three pieces framed, I’ll be happy. The frame arrived for Love Your Family a while back and I’ve never taken the time to frame it but today is the day. It’s just loosely popped into the...

Addie’s Thanksgiving Pillow from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Since I see Addie today and since Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away, it’s a good thing I got this little pillow finished. The last pillow I made, I put right sides together (backing, front with a piece of fabric underneath it) and sewed around all four edges, leaving about a 3″ opening...
