Close But No Cigar

I worked on Evan's stocking and made progress.  I am up to piece 104 now (out of 120).  There really are more pieces than 120.  There are six pieces numbered 115 which are candy canes.  But now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I got a pink polka-dotted gift done and the train.

 Today I will work on another gift package.

I put together the Stitchy Box pin cushion.

I like how it turned out.  If I stitch another side panel, I can make a second pin cushion.  Right now, I'm not in the mood.
It was a bit cool walking this morning.  The weather is getting cooler and I wore a sweater.  I want it to stay summer!  Pretty soon I'll have to wear long pants again.  I should be happy that I can still walk outside and that the sun is shining.


  1. (sorry if this repeats - having connectivity issues tonight)

    The little train is adorable and your pincushion turned out great! Did you use layers of batting to stuff the Stitchy Box?

  2. Great progress on the stocking, you are really cranking this one out!
    It's so cute.
    The pincushion is pretty.

  3. Love your little pincushion!
    I should take a little walk tonight while the weather is still nice. Thanks for the inspiration - winter will be here too soon!

  4. LOVE the pincushion! And the stocking is looking great! I'm sad to see summer go, too, as it's my favorite time of year.

  5. I had no idea there were so many sections/pieces to the stocking! Thank you for sharing your progress. And that pincushion is adorable!
