WIP Wednesday #380 @TN&TN from The Needle and Thread Network

Somehow lots of sewing things have happened recently: I finished a mini quilt for a swap, I'm going to quilt a quilt for someone (for money!!), and my youngest has enjoyed doing some embroidery she started through a project with the Brownies!

WIP Wednesday #379 @TN&TN from The Needle and Thread Network

cross stitch - Kindness & Fortitude: A Quaker Sampler from Modern Folk Embroidery by Lucy Brennan

Those quiet moments in the evening, a few stitches on my lunch break, this pick up and put down project is slowly coming to life. It is a soothing, mindful way to relax and all the colours together look very peaceful and calming to me. 

cross stitch - Kindness & Fortitude:  A Quaker Sampler from Modern Folk Embroidery by Lucy Brennan

I knew that the Kindness & Fortitude: A Quaker Sampler from Modern Folk Embroidery was going to be the first project I started in 2019. It was no coincidence that my word for the year is FORTITUDE, I did chose this pattern partly for that reason but also because it appealed to me ...

Celebrate National Embroidery Month with Our Newest Designers! from Marcus Fabrics

February is National Embroidery Month!  And it just happens that the newest additions to our design family are both embroidery experts!  We asked them to share a few of their favorite tips for creating beautiful hand embroidered projects.

Cindy Staub of Quilt Doodle Designs debuted with Marcus last month with her SNOWMEN SNOW GLOBE BOM program, using her pre-printed panel and coordinating PRIMO PLAID FLANNELS: New Blues. We love Cindy’s mix of blue flannel stars surrounding the “snowfriends” globe, which she cut from the panel.  On the panel you’ll find other fun design elements suitable for smaller projects ...

first finish from Charm About You


keep it simple, Stitchsperation cross stitch

woo hoo!! I'm happy to start the year with a finish. I was encouraged by Carolyn Friedlander's informal QAL and, while this isn't a quilt, I knew it would be the push I needed to get it done. The fact that I have purchased a new cross stitch pattern, specifically to stitch this year, also meant this one had to be finished. A woman with so many quilt projects on the go can't possibly work on two cross stitch projects - so not true - but I'm sticking to that because it will prevent a slippery slope ...

Christmas Markets and a Free Pattern from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

It's been a busy holiday season here in Germany! Christmas markets, cookie decorating, and of course, stitching. Today's post will share a little bit of what's been going on over here, and we have a free ornament pattern as a bonus! 

Christmas markets are quintessentially German, and around here they are in full swing. Last week I did a marathon of four Christmas markets—three in the Black Forest and one locally. Every market is a little different as each town puts their own spin on it. Some are small with a few vendors and others are ...
