Stitch Gathering Ticket

This wriggly little lady has been keeping me super busy but, hold on to your hats folks, there has been some stitching!

For the past couple of years I have been an onlooker as the lovely Jo at My Bearpaw has set the Stitch Gathering delegates the creative tasks of creating their own "ticket" to the event. But this year, thanks to hubby's very thoughtful birthday present, I don't have to just look on, I get to join in!  Seeing what plan Jo had up her sleeve for this year's ticket project has all been part of the unfolding anticipation of this year's event for me.  So, a few month's back I was quite excited to start thinking about my plans for this year's ticket for which Jo requested a favourite word - a word that's perhaps inspirational, fun or just one we love the sound of.

Honestly, it took me no time at all to decide on the word "giggle".  I love how it sounds and hope that it will be a really good word to include on Jo's final project which is to take all of the words and make them up into an inspirational quilt for a school or a hospice or some other such deserving place.

It took me a little more time to decide how to present my word.  Finally I settled on some embroidery, stitching the letters and the giggling emoticon all with chain stitch.  At points during the process I wasn't sure it was going to have the look I wanted but I'm glad I persevered and I hope it's a worthy addition to Jo's quilt and, of course, that it means I can gain entry to Stitch Gathering in a couple of weekends' time.

It has been lovely to pop in with something stitch to show you but don't be holding your breath for more stitching pics anytime soon! Just saying ;-)


  1. So glad you've managed to fit in some stitching! Lovely to hear that you'll be off to join your pals at the Stitch Gathering too :)

  3. brilliant! this is really a word to make you feel good! Gorgeous lady :)

  4. I hope you had a marvellous time and that Cutesy Tootsy didn't miss you too much xx

  5. Stitch gathering ticket is very famous and productive for the years to come. It is enshrined and afflicted with the essay on time caution and infliction of the times. It is controlled and provided in the smooth and effective manner. It is joined and settled.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
