Hannah Lancaster - Week 5

Little late in my post this week.  Not really sure why, it's not like I have been all that busy.  

I finally managed to move the scroll rods again, and I ONLY have 30 more rows till the house is complete.  Remind me again, not to do a sampler that has a large building in it!!!!!

I have been helping my mom put together some jigsaw puzzles, which is probably why I haven't stitched as much.  My mom works on the puzzle in the early morning, and then after she goes to bed, I move the pieces she put in the wrong spots.  Sort of like when the kids decorate the Christmas tree.

In her defense, the light and her eyes are as great as they used to be, and theses puzzles these days, are a real challenge.  Especially if all the puzzles pieces are exactly the same, or the colors of the puzzle are muted and it's difficult to tell where, they are supposed to go.

One of these puzzles will go to my brother in Georgia, and the other to my sister in Illinois. We all like putting puzzles together, it's something my mother started us all on when we were young.  

I have been bad again, as I just bought another chart.  Ordered myself some Velcro for fabric for my scroll rods.  And....I think I know what I'm going to do with the $75 gift certificate to In Stitches.  Queenstown Sampler has a new sampler coming out after the Nashville Trade Show.  

The snow has practically all melted.  Thanks to higher temperatures and some rain.  I hear that it's going to be an early spring.  But really, can you trust a ground hog?

Oh, I also started a pinterest page.  If you want to check it out here is the link https://www.pinterest.com/addictedxstitch/

Until next week, happy, happy stitching!


  1. Fabulous progress, Pam! The house is moving along. I like the jigsaw puzzle with the quilt theme. There are several online jigsaw puzzle sites if you are interested. Quite a bit of the snow has melted here, but still have spots with several inches. Have a great week!

    1. Ive been limiting gaming apps, only because of my addictive personality. I have spider solitaire and also Temple Run on my phone and that is enough. If you like regular jigsaw puzzles, check out the Mary Maxim website. I like it because, if you go into the description, some of the puzzles are large pieces, which are just easier to work with. They have quite the variety in subject, size, etc.

  2. Will the new sampler be the "Maria Jenuaria"?
