A Changed World from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Here’s all you need to know about how/where to find A Changed World. First, I never mind answering questions but, believe it or not, there are times I step away from the internet. Often, I mention some important info .. ok .. I never say anything important, but often I’ll share a link in the...

A Home Is . . Progress from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Frames from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The frames that I’ve ordered have all been ordered from Custom Frames. Denise found them first and told me about them. She’s ordered a good many frames from them and been happy with them. Today while in town, we had an extra few minutes waiting for Chad, Nicole and Addie to get Addie’s shoes at...

Big Red House Finished from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Big Red House won’t be “fully finished” til the frame arrives, but the stitching is done and that means I finished the June Cross Stitch Camp project with plenty of time to spare. I kinda surprised myself. It wasn’t huge – finished at about 7.25″ x 5.25″ but there were a good many stitches in...

Magnifying Lamps from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As you may remember, I keep ordering magnifying lamps. Back in the Fall, when I first started cross stitching, my friend, Donna, told me that she had ordered so many lamps trying to get the one that worked perfectly for her. I thought . . how hard can it be? Oh, now I know. Every...

Another Shop Recommendation from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The other day I needed a silk conversion. There’s a chart I want to stitch but don’t want to use the silk thread the designer recommended. I contacted one shop that I thought did conversions but they said they don’t do “custom” conversions. I remembered watching a video with Nicola Parkman where she interviwed Cathe...

Not Finished Again from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

So close but not finished as of 10 p.m. I will probably have it finished before I go to bed though . . maybe. Here’s my list from last night: JUNE 15, 2021 (EDIT) NOT FINISHED! Why can’t I stay on track? Never have … probably never will. Yesterday I had such big plans of cross stitching all...

Not Finished! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Why can’t I stay on track? Never have … probably never will. Yesterday I had such big plans of cross stitching all day and I didn’t get started til almost 8 p.m. What did I do? Good question! Fairly early in the day Vince went to town and I had planned to start cross stitching...

New Charts from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Remember I said I wasn’t going to order anything new unless it really jumped out at me. This one did . . actually these two. The Silver Needle had a retreat last week with Tanya from The Scarlett House. I have so many of her charts that I want to do. Just looking at these...

Cross Stitch Retreats from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There are several really good retreats in my area. There’s an active group – mostly from the Springfield, MO and NW Arkansas area, but they host several retreats a year. The Silver Needle in Tulsa has several. One just finished up with Tanya from The Scarlett House. They have one in July with Teresa Kogut...

Speaking of Cross Stitching Supplies from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Of course, I’m always speaking of cross stitching supplies! When I starte cross stitching again in late Fall or early Winter, 2020, I did what I always do and went wild ordering floss and fabric. It is almost impossible to get some fabrics, even entire brands – those are sold the instant they hit the...

Cross Stitch Charts from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I suppose it’s pretty much the same with everything but the cost of some of the cross stitch charts I’ve seen lately have me kinda wondering what some of these people are thinking. I do understand that folks are trying to make a living doing what they love but some are a little above what...

June Cross Stitch Camp Progress – Day 9 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday afternoon when I had an almost uninterrupted few hours of cross stitching, I was 100% sure I’d get the house below the roof started and maybe even get to the roof. But, I got sleepy before I finished so today, surely I will finish the red part of the house. There’s a chance I...

June Cross Stitch Camp Progress – Day 8 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday I hardly got any stitching done and obviously didn’t meet my goal of getting up to the roof. I have 11 more rows to go before getting to the roof and there’s almost zero chance I’ll get those all done today. I did go ahead and put the green stitching above and below the...

June Cross Stitch Camp Project – Day 7 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Saturday, I didn’t make a single stitch. Sunday, after Chad, Nicole and Addie left, I sat down to stitch and might have made 10 stitches but probably, it was more like 5. I was tired! Here’s where I left off Friday night and that was the last photo I had taken. Look how much I...

My Stitching Spot from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ve talked about this and probably shown pictures of the setup inside the entertainment center door before but I’ve made a really neat improvement that I wanted to share. Remember these magnetic plastic ties that I use to keep the excess fabric away from my stitching? Keep those in your mind for a second. I’ve...
