Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! If you enjoy needles, threads, yarn, and hand made delights, you have found your tribe!
I finished a couple of hand stitched sympathy cards this week. This heart design by Little Lion Stitchery (free pattern when you subscribe) is fun to cross stitch, easy enough to complete quickly, yet challenging enough to keep your interest. I love to stitch with variegated threads. I painted a bit of pink around the centre cutout to make the card less stark white.
Great progress has been made on my Alphabet Sampler. I stitched from right to left on this project, and only have 2 more letters to go. The letter 'B' is almost done, and then there is only 'A' and 'C' to stitch. It has been a vision challenge to stitch on 36 count linen (3 threads over 2). One day I realized I had 3 pairs of glasses in my work space - plus my magnifier lamp! But I forgive it for being so hard to see because it looks absolutely beautiful, and I am very proud of this stitching!
Winter Mystery Stitchalong. The hand quilting has been started around these adorable mittens. I am motivated to finish this miniature quilt before Joy starts her Spring mystery.

Your sympathy card is beautiful. I love, love the Alphabet Sampler. 36 count linen requires a lot of magnification. I like the multiple glasses. Mine are scattered around the house and in my purse. I am looking forward to seeing all the quilting on the Winter MSA. Have a great week!
The alphabet sampler is beautiful, you have every reason to be proud.
You sure stitch up that alphabet sampler quickly! The sympathy card is beautiful. I’m sure the recipient will appreciate your efforts and feel the love in every stitch, enjoy your day!
I love variegated flosses - that pink is really pretty! And those mittens are adorable. Enjoy your stitching today, Kathy!
The card is so pretty!
Your handwork is amazing. The sympathy card is so sweet. What a wonderful idea.
Great finish on your heart, and lovely stitching on your other projects. I also love variegated flosses. Happy stitching!
Lovely to see your stitching. Sadly I did not get a chance to even think about stitching yesterday.
Such a darling card and gorgeous sampler that you are working on. Your Winter embroidery looks fabulous. I finished the mittens on mine last night. Hope you have a great week, Kathy.
The Alphabet Sampler is such a lovely pattern and your stitching makes it even more so. Cute little mittens and the variegated heart on the sympathy card is perfect.
What a beautiful sympathy card - and thoughtful as well! I bet is has been a challenge to stitch on 36 count linen! Your project is lovely! Beautiful mitten stitching!
All three projects look fantastic. Happy stitching this week.
