Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a good week so far :-)

Well, I have a bit of a problem. Not so much a problem as a general situation I guess. I have a tendancy to put needles in my mouth when I need both hands to do something. This irritates the people around me so much that I'm constantly being nagged at by whoever's around. And then there's the other issue of trying to talk while said needle is in my mouth. It falls of course, never to be found again. So, after losing so many needles that I had to resort to borrowing them from the museum gift shop office, I've decided that I need a puncushion. I think I'd like to make one though- it seems fitting.

I remember reading on a cross stitch blog that someone had made some. Stitched the top and maybe attached it to a mason jar lid? Does anyone remember reading that, or writing about it? If so, please point me in the right direction! And if anyone out there has any idea of where to find some instructions or patterns for them, I'd love to hear from you!

Now, onto the good stuff. I made a little bit of progress on Earl Grey this week. Here's an updated pic:

Sorry it's so dark...I should really work on taking pictures during the day rather than at night! So, as you can see, just a small amount of progress has been made this week. There is a leaf on the left-hand side that is in the process of being ripped out because apparently I can't count. Again. Haha...this is a theme!

I'm thinking about starting one of my Lizzie Kate teacup patterns this weekend...I bought them back in March or April and I can hear them calling to me. Yes, my patterns DO talk to me :-)


  1. lol talking patterns,,, maybe that's why I can't get a word in edgewise!!!There is never a quiet moment here and now I know why. Thank you for the insight...
    Be always in stitches.

  2. Awww look at Earl Grey! He is adorable.
