Stitchmaynia 2017....

I decided to participate again in Stitchmaynia,
where you have 15 new starts in the
first 15 days of May.  I decided
to tweak it to better suit my schedule
and have a new start every other day. 
I was able to get a really good start on my
projects and still have time for other stitching.

To make it even easier I decided to us the
club kits I have been accumulating the
last 3 years as my new starts.
All of the projects are small and this
will give a good variety to pick up
and go over the next year.

The clubs kits were included the
Colonial Gatherings Club, which I
have been a member of for 3 years. 
The designers are Plum Street Samplers and
Scarlett House so you know these will be good.

The third club is Silver Needle's
A Little Help from our Friends Stitching Circle. 
Each year has featured 5 different designers
so I have a good variety with this club.

I did have to swap out some of the fabrics
because of color or texture but I know I will
have some finishes I will treasure.

I hope to finish many of these this year. 
Some of these were hard to put down
so I will definitely visiting with them this month.
It will be nice to have a basket of smalls to
sprinkle within my bigger projects

I hope you are finding time to put needle
and thread to fabric.
Thanks for visiting my little space
on the stitching universe!


  1. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I see some of these and now I need some of these! What fabulous choices!

  2. You have made so many lovely choices Karen. I look forward to seeing them as you stitch and then the finished stitches. Looks like a lot of fun! My friend Mary and I have started a new blog and we would love it if you could stop by for a visit. RJ @ stitchingfriendsforever

  3. Karen, what a great idea to pick up some of the club kits for your version of Stitch Maynia! I look forward to seeing/reading progress reports and some finishes down the road. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. I have many of those same pieces to start! Look forward to seeing yours finished soon.

  5. I will enjoy seeing them all in progress and done. Since they are club pieces I believe we can't get them. But we can dream!!!

  6. Karen, Great idea to use the club kits for Stitchmaynia! Such pretty patterns, looking forward to seeing them stitched and finished! Mary

  7. Lots of pretty pieces you picked out Karen. Looking forward to the finishes.

  8. Your approach to stitch mania seems more realistic than some I have seen--great choices, great designs great results

  9. Ok--you always stitch beautiful pieces, and these are no exception! I look forward to seeing a few progress pictures, and then finishes!! Hugs!


Who doesn't love a good comment....or a bad one for that matter! Thanks a bunch for visiting my little piece of the stitching universe! If you're new, I will be sure to visit you too.
