I’m here with an update on my cross stitch and sewing over the last week.
As I mentioned previously, I am working my way through old cross stitch UFOs. The most recent finish is Sew She Did by Lori Holt.
From my previous update…
Here is the finished stitching…
That sewing machine was no joke. There were a lot of stitches!
I’m saving the stitched finishes in a drawer for now. I’ll decide how to fully finish them later.
I made progress on A Patriotic Christmas Eve by Twin Peak Primitives. I’m stitching this with a friend. We’ve broken the chart into sections. March’s assignment is to stitch the rocking horse, the words and start Santa.
Here it is when I last shared progress...
Here is where I am now…
I also made a little progress on Red Bird Sampler by With Thy Needle and Thread.

From the sewing machine…
I made four Primrose blocks for Lori Holt’s Flea Market Quilt.
These are the brown ones which will be in the corners of one of the borders.
The remaining 36 blocks will all be different and made from these fabrics. All 40 blocks will measure 5 1/2" square.
And lastly, here is the block for week 20 of Sewcialites 2. This is Fascinate by Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life.
We will be in Florida next week for appointments. I’m hoping to continue to make progress on cross stitch projects while I’m there.
Wishing you a very happy weekend ahead.
See you soon!
Nice progress, Jeanna. Your stitched beauties are looking great.
I agree with Gene- nice progress! Tour stitching is beautiful - ;))
You've really been busy. I love the cross stitch projects - especially the Christmas one.
Your cross-stitch projects are lovely! I love the sewing machine, but it does look labor intensive. Pretty bundle of fabric for your new quilt project, too!
You made great progress this week. So much fill-in on that sewing machine!!
Love, love that sewing machine, it will look great when you get a sewing room back to hang it in. You have done well this week:)
Your cross stitching projects are gorgeous and coming along beautifully! You got so much done! I love anything Lori Holt. Great blocks!
Wow, what an enjoyable roundup of your progress, Jeanna. I so enjoyed seeing your lovely cross stitching. Beautiful work. Great quilting blocks too. Happy stitching from me!
You certainly pack variety into your week - Sew she did looks great and I love the tree in your cross stitch. Nice piecing too!
Oh, Jeanna, what beautiful projects! I have that Lori Holt sewing machine started...as with so many projects. I'm trying a "rotation' to see if that helps me get some XS finishes. I love the Twin Peaks piece...that is lovely. I need to break patterns into manageable goals like that. Although, who's going to hold me accountable? LOL! That's why it's nice to do it with a friend.
The redbird sampler is stunning. Do you stitch on 40 count? I'm not sure I could handle that but it always looks so nice.
The Flea Market quilt is going to be gorgeous. I got behind on all my projects because I was sick. I'm just starting to get back to them. Your sewcialites is so pretty to. The fabrics are right up my alley.
Have a good time in Florida!
Wow you are a busy bee. Saw you on instagram.
Thanks for the helpful advice and tips you've provided in this blog
