Updates and a Lack of Self Control

The past week has involved little stitching time. I did put off housework in order to stitch over the weekend, though.

My first update is on my Woodland Sampler by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I finished stitching the July Block and started August. My goal is to finish August by the end of the week.

I have stitched a little more on May Word play by With thy needle and Thread. This project is great when I only have a short time to stitch and I want to see progress.

Now it is confession time. I know that I planned to only work on my WIPS because there are so many, however, I could not resist the 2014 Once upon A Time Sampler by the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. It includes a combination of specialty and DMC floss. A new fairy tale is to be stitched up each month. I have already received the pattern for January and the border pattern. I had to start. If you are interested you should check their website:

Hope to post again soon! ~aj


  1. I too have no self control! Despite a list of WiPs as long as your arm, I've jsut bought the Fairy Tale sampler too!

    p.s. you forgot to put up your grow your blog post

    1. Would you believe that I got so wrapped up in frogging/rest itching part of the Once Upon A Time border that I forgot to post? Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Welcome to the grow your blog day! Nice stitching. I have also done the Halloween cat! Will check back for a new post!

  3. I love this post! I have more WIPs than I can count, but the Once Upon a Time sampler is just too sweet to pass up! A dear friend is working on the woodland sampler, too, and I have a feeling I'll be adding that to my pile...Chrissie x
