M is for MMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Who would have thought finding the time to stitch one little square each day would be so hard?! Despite the time challenge, this is SO much fun.
Anyway, here's the M:

I am very happy with how this turned out. I watched the videos on the stitchalong home page and tried a new stitch for the outline. One of these days I will try my hand at my very first french knot. I am SUCH a rookie at this. The other women are blowing me away with their awesome stitching.

Sooo...if you are talented woman from the stitchalong who came in here ---- if you have any suggestions for my letters please post them. I got the idea for a kite for k from the stitchalong, and think an ice cream for i might be good (if I can pull it off) but I could use some HELP!!

In other news....I finished my entry into the $5 dollar store Spring Decor challenge. I took a bunch of pictures and hope to post my tutorial this week. On March 25th (the day of the challenge) I must remember to link the post to enter the contest. I am so excited to see what people come up with! How will I ever have the time to look at all the entries!?!


  1. Loving the M! And now, I am craving chocolate :)

    I think a double or triple-scoop ice cream cone would be adorable for the letter I! I know you can do it!

    I use this site for video tutorials and stitch inspiration: http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/10/video-library-of-hand-embroidery.html

  2. Thanks for popping by my blog! Glad you liked my first little square - I'm quite proud. I love your little M&M - and alphabet sampler is a great idea! I love seeing what everyone is doing with these.

    In response to your french knot concern - I only had consistent luck with french knots AFTER seeing the french knot tutorial on sublime stitching. That, with practice, brought me success with it and now I actually like doing them (hated them at first)! Best of luck to you - you can do it!

  3. Hi There~
    Thank you for the welcome to the stitchalong! I'm excited to get stitching! I really love all your squares, especially the M...mmm, m&m's!! One of my favorites!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Love the "M", makes me hungry! And I think you are much better at this than you give yourself credit for!


I love comments!
