Stick 6 in 2021 - First update

I have joined Martina (Mein-allerlei-hobby) for her Stick 6 in 2021. This means that I will stitch and complete six cross stitch designs in 2021. Each of my selected projects is given a number of 1 to 6.  For January/February's stitching the chosen project was No. 4. For me that meant Just Nan's 'M is for Mouse'. I'm pleased with this pillow finish especially as I made my cording the right thickness (to me, that is).

M is for Mouse - Just Nan
Fabric: 28ct Crafty Kitten Jazlyn Sunlit Smoke
Threads and Embellishments - As suggested DMC threads and mouse charm

My Stick 6 in 21 projects for the year are: 

  1. Mill Hill
  2. Heartstring Samplery
  3. Blackbird Designs
  4. Just Nan
  5. Plum Street Samplers
  6. Abbey Rose Designs
For March and April's stitching the chosen number is 2 which will be Heartstring Samplery for me. I won't start it straight away as I want to do some stitching for St. Patrick's Day first.


  1. Such a pretty finish, Mary--and great job on the cording! The little mouse charm on it is adorable, too. Enjoy your day! ♥

  2. Not just a beautiful motif, but also a pretty finish. I am happy that you are there and I am curious what you want to show for number 2.
    Hugs Martina

  3. Beautiful pillow. I stitched this one for Mouse a few years ago. I do wish Nan would do the rest of the alphabet! You know I would buy them all.

  4. Very fine , i love it !

  6. It is beautiful, Mary! Well done on the finishing, I like the thickness of the trim too! I'll be watching to see what else you stitch for your challenge!
