Some stitching and knitting

Hi everyone,  did a bit of stitching this past week.  I once again picked up Quaker Christmas which I started in 2009 and for whatever reason it got put away, taken out, put away and now it is taken out and will be finished hopefully with in the next month!
Now for this past weeks finishes -
one of the pincushions from Scarlet Letter's Quaker Pincushions.
I was lucky to have a friend who happened to have the same dye lot of thread that I was using for this internet SAL.  I ran out of thread just at the end of the last set of numbers.  I am so thankful, now to get it framed.
 Here is a piece from Beth Twist that I showed last week, the stitching is done, now to finish it into a little pin keep.
I took a knitting sock a month class last year and each month I only got one sock done!!!  so this year I am knitting the 2nd sock.

I am taking an internet class with Jackie duPlessis via the Shining Needle so here is my start for this.  All the stitching needs to be done before March 18th, then we put everything together as a group.  I am really excited about doing this - isn't this design the cutest!!!???  All the supplies and instructions come to you either via postal mail or the internet.  So far so fun.
Well that is it for now  -- see you all next week  --  thanks for stopping by.

What a lovely post Roberta.
I love the SL pincushion piece and the stitching for the Hearstrings Samplery pincushion is beautiful also.
Snap! I ran out of Vikki Clayton silk for my SAL piece and Sheila had to come to the rescue.
Nice work on the sock. I am reminded that I have socks on the needles that need to be finished.

Congrats on your lovely red sampler finish Roberta - and I'm really jealous of your Rhapsody in Blue project on SNS - I just couldn't take on another single thing - truly I will enjoy seeing yours come to life. Cheers ! melody
