I am stitching along with the 

All info in the link above.

This is another new WIP.

I am beginning to think I need to stop starting new projects
but I saw all the stitching in progress and I just could not resist.  

It is late at night here and was sewing today on one of my quilty commitments
when this project called my name because my floss arrived today!

I am choosing medium red, pink and light seagreen DMC floss for this project.

Cross stitch: getting started with a mug rug from Carried Away Quilting

Thank you all for your kind, funny and enthusiastic comments about our fish house. We continue to enjoy our time on the frozen lake, particularly when the neighbors wander over to visit and share their snacks. It’s like a block party on the ice.

Since my blog post, Stitching while Ice Fishing, I’ve taken baby steps back into cross stitching.  I have to tell you, I felt like a newbie, all awkward and unsure of what I was doing. After some minor struggles, I stitched a small practice piece which I made into a mug rug.

Stitching while ice fishing from Carried Away Quilting

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while know that I live in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes where the summers are short and the winters are long . . . and cold . . . and snowy. 

We aim to make the best of it during the winter months. As soon as our little lake makes enough ice, it becomes populated with a village of fish houses. My husband and several of the neighbors become evening and weekend fishermen. Occasionally I bundle up and venture out onto the ice as well, so I can keep him company.

Now don’t ...

Log Cabin Quilt Along – My 2020 Challenge from Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber

Looking back on 2019, I sewed at least a dozen quilts, most of them on a deadline, then turned them over to be photographed for books or other projects. I don’t usually see my quilts much after I’ve sewn them, and sometimes it’s hard to remember what I make from year to year. For that reason, I’ve started making scrap quilts to remember my quilting by.

Last year, I wanted to find a creative way to use up my scraps AND create something memorable that would capture moments from my projects throughout the year. That was ...
