Happy April!

My goodness, this year just seems to be flying by! I can't believe we're a quarter through the year!

With it being the first of the month, the next installment of the Once Upon A Time Sampler has come out and I'm so excited, but first, an update on Garden of Joy:

I am very pleased to say that I met my goal on this ornament for the month after all and got all of the stitching done last night! That means beading is all that is left. I have decided, I think, that this is just too big for me to finish it into an ornament for my tree - it rivals the size of some of my blown glass Santa ornaments in size. I will probably end up finishing this in a frame of some sort instead of an ornament, but we'll see what I feel like doing when I actually am ready to finish it. I'm not exactly known for the finishing of my pieces once I'm done stitching them! Hah!

Garden of Joy has been put away for now, though, so I can work on the next installment of Once Upon A Time. This month, I'm working on Goldilocks and the Three Bears!

I have already decided that I'm making one new additional substitution for the flosses this month. Just like I did silk for the hair of the princess in the February block, I'm going to use one of the brand new silk colors I got from my latest batch of Mo's flosses for Goldilocks' hair. That will be two out of the three girls in the piece with silk for their hair - Snow White has all black hair and I don't have a coordinating silk to go with that!

I can't wait to get started! In fact, I think I'm going to go do that right now!

Until next time!


  1. Beautiful stitching! Can't wait to see this newest block on Once Upon a Time stitched up :D It's so cute!

  2. Your garden of joy looks wonderful - perhaps you could make it into a miniature wall hanging instead of an ornament that way you could still hang it up.

    I look forward to seeing the next installment of Once upon a time.

  3. The ornament looks gorgeous. I love the frosted pumpkin stitchery! The sampler looks lovely. Can't wait to see next month's instalment :)

  4. That once upon a time sampler keeps getting cuter :)

  5. Absolutely gorgeous stitching :)
