Stitching Bits Between Unpacking

Here we are with another Sunday upon us with some slow stitching on my to do list for today.

Unpacking is progressing at a better pace this week and the house is starting to resemble a home with most of the books now on shelves with all those boxes out of the way I can see the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak and the kitchen floor.  

I'm glad to have the task behind me and would love to say it won't happen again but I am a reader, a lover of books as long as I breathe there will always be books to unpack and shelves to put them on.  In fact, a new book just arrived on Friday, (thank you Amazon for speedy delivery), for down time with my fingers numb and tingling stitching was out of the question so reading a few chapters to unwind would do.
I did get in a little stitching yesterday afternoon not much because I popped something in my hand again earlier in the week so the tingling and numbness made holding the needle too uncomfortable after a bit.
The inner ring is nearly complete and after pulling out several stitches for the third time I put her aside.  While I was stitching I decided to change the color of the flower portion of the piece. I was planning a light lavender or green when it hit me to use rainbow colors, so I toss around the idea a bit in my head and looked at the piece wondering a different color of the rainbow for each flower, or each petal.  Then it hit me I unpacked a box of forgotten craft items some were hanks and skeins of embroidery floss, this Threadwork 1154 aka Bradley's Balloons may just be what I was thinking of.  
It has the rainbow quality I want, it's a variegated floss so the colors will just flow so I won't have to change colors for each flower or petal.  

Lately I have had the urge to embroider a sunflower or two and somewhere among my patterns I have a kit with sunflowers on it, well time will tell what I have time for.  Did you ever get an urge to embroider something specific?   I am linking up at Kathy's Quilts today here is the link check out the lovely things other bloggers are slow stitching.

Speaking of flowers this week some lovely Mexican Petunias popped up in the front of my house.
 I guess all the rain we have been getting urged them to come up, I'm so glad they did I love these pretty little flowers each evening the flower falls off and in the morning a new one appears.

I put my crescent moon statue out as soon as I pulled it off the truck,  I have a few other ornamental pieces to place in this area which will eventually be placed here and there.  
For now gardening isn't even a consideration at this time if I come across a piece while unpacking it will make it's way outside, with the arrival of autumn I'm sure I'll be more settled and have a few planters in place.


  1. Hope your hand feels better soon!

  2. Glad you are getting your new place sorted out. It takes time doesn't it? Nice rainbow thread but take care not to overdo things.

  3. I am glad that you are settling in and getting a lot of unpacking and placing done. I am so sorry that your hand is still bothering you, but I know the feeling. I think that your pretty variegated thread will look beautiful as those petals.

  4. So glad you're getting settled with more time for stitching and reading. I think the variegated thread will be perfect for those circles!

    some times we just need to give a try to herbal Medicine to see for our self. I am very happy today that i didnt listen to what people say if not i would have been a dead lady by now. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2015, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the office thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS, HIV, HPV and many more disease and she gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and send me the herbal medicine through courier delivering service and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after 2 weeks, the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished and blister dried off . I went to the hospital for a test and it was negative. this man is real and he is the solution to herpes virus. so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him (call or whatsapp +2348151937428) according to this great DR he can also cure HIV, ALS,CANCER, COLD SORE AND DIABETES,ETC.
