My Name is Teresa and I am a Stitching Addict

Nancy's Needle
Tulips and Fans Quilt
18 ct mono canvas
Called-for threads

My name is Teresa and I am a stitching addict. Yes, it has been several days since my last blog posting and I have been busily stitching, trying to finish up this project. Lots of yummy Watercolors threads--love them-no laying required! Now this goes into my "to-be-finished" pile. It will be a few weeks until I can get any further with that pile.

Meanwhile, I must turn my attention to my upcoming vacation and pull together some small projects that will fit in my carry-on luggage. First we will be attending my nephew's high school graduation in Raleigh, NC. Then it will be on to do some fun "touristy"sight-seeing like: Mt Vernon, Monticello, and Colonial Williamsburg. Then on to Indiana to put my MIL's house on the market. Yes, a lot to squeeze into just 2 weeks.

Hope your weekend is including lots of stitches!

What a great finish Teresa! You sound like you have your work cut out for you the next couple of weeks. I envy you going to Colonial Williamsburg. I tried to get my family there and they hated it. Obviously, they don't have much culture. Hope you have a great time.

I like your finish. Nancy's Needle has some great projects. You are just making me want to buy more stash. Enjoy your trip!! Hope you get some time to stitch.

If you make it as far north as Mt. Vernon, do not forget to go to In Stitches in Alexandria - it's about 3 miles away.

I love your finish! Did you use the threads called for? If not could you share what you used for colors. This one is great!
