Monday Making

It's time for a Monday making party again!
It's hard for me to believe that I've been hosting this for a year and a half already!

It's nice to pull out what I THINK I might accomplish in the coming week
and share about it.
It doesn't always get DONE...but that's o.k.

Hope it helps you too
as you prioritize your "making"!!
I don't always get around to visit you....
but I love the comaraderie in our MAKING!

I've always been a MAKER.
Homemade has always been my "GO TO" when it comes to gifts
and making a home for my family.

I've made dresses and pajamas as gifts.
And then....quilts...of course!

There has always been homemade curtains on the windows
and homemade chair covers in the kitchen at my house.

There are SO MANY, many things I want to make!!
A weekly goal is kind of nice.

This week I hope to put some stitches into this unfinished needlepoint I found at the thrift store.
I'm getting some hand projects lined up for the beginning of August
when my 20 year old has a surgery scheduled.
Long hours in the hospital demand hand work!!!

Link up and share what YOU're making this week!


  1. Oh, I can so relate to your statement about there being so many things I want to make! In fact, I started feeling guilty about how many things I was starting so did a survey of others (to make myself feel less guilty) to find out the average number of projects people have going. I would say 5 or more! And that's probably low. :)

  2. Very pretty stitchery. Hope the surgery goes well and that you and your daughter don't have to spend too much time in the hospital.

  3. When our guild had its annual Rafflemania this month I included a bundle of never-worked needlework kits that I bought at thrift shops. I went to a church rummage sale on Saturday and what did I buy? An Elsa Williams crewel kit for luggage rack straps. I have no plans to do the stitchery but for fifty cents I got a nice piece of Belgian linen and crewel yarn!

  4. I enjoyed doing needlepoint but have never framed the piece I did. And yet I still really like it -- maybe it's time to do some framing! I would never have thought to look for needlepoint kits at a thrift store.

  5. You are definitely going to need some hand sewing for sitting in a hospital room. I hope all goes well for him and his recovery is quick.
