~New Stitcheries~

I know that I have been gone for a long time, but time has just gotten away from me lately.  The end of the school year is a busy time and the weeks seem to fly by.

I have started making stitcheries and I am really happy with how they are turning out.  I designed them on paper and then use a light box to transfer the pattern onto the material before I stitch them.








Let me know what you think!

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More.  I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can.  Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook.  I would love to see you there too.  You can also follow Yesterday Once More on pinterest by clicking here.

Your samplers are getting more and more complex--very nice and neat! Neatness is very important to me--skill will always improve with practice, but if we are sloppy the work will never be of good quality. You should be very pleased with the work you are doing!--Jan

Hi Dan,
I think they look awesome. You are the tidiest stitcher I know! Are you using muslin to stitch on or just Aida cloth? Also, how are you staining them, tea dye? I think you should start saving your patterns and look into selling them! Stop by my blog soon for a visit!
PS. I think it's time for a 3 P's stitching!

Hi Dan! I am a new follower. I found you on Pinterest, and I am following you there too. I have read most of your blog and love it!! It tugs at my heart to be able to enjoy primitive America. Living in Spain I have lots of places to go for inspiration (Mediterranean, old world, Spanish farm...) but somehow, no matter how hard I try, it doesn't feel like home. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.
But I do have a question: I have noticed you always talk about what you do in the house...doesn't Jeff help you at all?
Hugs and prayers from the Spanish Mediterranean

Dan ~ I will be the first to tell you, I don't know much about Samplers/Stitching. One thing I do know is, your letters are so nice. As if you wrote them, rather than stitched them. I would LOVE to see a school ABC and 123 old style sampler by you. Your work in Amazing and so easy on the eyes. Clean and Crisp.

TFS&I....Hugs,
Marlene

Dan honey you have been on my mind so much that I thought I had better come by and check on you.
Can't believe school is almost out.
What are your plans for the summer.
Love love these lovely pieces you have been making. I think your pieces have me thinking about counted cross stitch again.
You need to publish these patterns so we can purchase them.
I am off to see the kids at the end of this week so if I find out any thing new on Clint I will let you know.
Give your mom a big hug for Mother's day. That is my birthday too. lol
Gosh I am getting old
Love ya honey
