2nd floor escape

Good afternoon
This last weekend we stayed at The Country Sampler 2nd floor hideaway, in Spring Green, Wisconsin
We started on Thursday and stayed till Sunday, which seemed like it past faster then lightening.



Barb, Diane, Anna and me
Linda, Terry and Anne
I hope no one has hurt feelings not being included, but it only sleeps 7, and there are plenty of open weekends to stay again and again and again









Look at all this food...





We stayed in for every meal, each of us planned a meal breakfast, lunch and dinner
We sure didn't starve, lol

I brought my beads and findings for everyone to make scissors FOBs
Some of these were all already made
Each made their own personal
They all turned out awesome and it was a break from stitching too



I have to remember to show the other little gifts that were brought also for each of us
Next posting also will be my WIPs, stayed tuned

Snooty Parrots Sampler

Good evening!!!
I started the snooty parrots sampler by Barbara Ana


Stitching on 40ct vintage light examplar w/GA threads

I wish I could take better photos of this 1938 tape measure. My mom gave it to me awhile ago, it was my grandmothers. It is the neatest thing ever
It is called a Tattle-Tape for women, it-tells-on-you. It has what's good figures for your bust waist and hips. Some of the things on the tape is For beauty, health and appearance check your weight and measurements each month. If your weight is within 10% of our charts and your proportions check with our tables.... You have a lovely figure. If this tape tattles on figure faults, remember, Charis and Swavis foundation garments always improve figure lines. Copyright by Roger Mattenson - Minneapolis, Minn, 1938






Almost time for bed, the warm fresh air today, tired me out
Goodnight!!

Happy Hump Day WIP'S

Hello stitchy peeps,

I have a couple of WIPs I want to share with you


Land of the Free by Willow Hill Samplings

The next one is from the market recently


Birdie Stitching Roll by La-D-Da

I also have another Vera Bradley grand tote



The pattern is Canyon. I thought it was a deal for 24.00, reg. 65.00

I bought the Forkloric awhile ago, I wasn't real happy how big it was.



It didnt have a closure , so I sewed on three snaps and found my zipper folders fit in perfectly
I will sew in three snaps in this one too


I'm ready for a trip, lol

Thanks for visiting my little corner of the stitchy world
Happy stitching

Oh! Where do I start? or the end of 2013

Happy New Year!!!
I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas, it was busy, but nice here with the family.
It's so fun to have grandkids
I wanted to play catch up this years end
Here are some of my WIP's I started this year




















I have had too many finishes in 2013 to post
I started Emerald Mermaid years ago, it's my goal to finish in 2014




Although this doesn't make a dent in my pile, heres a sampling of some of the things I have kitted and ready for 2014




Disclaimer... I have the right to change patterns and not to finish any of the above, not that I won't try
Here are some pics Christmas morning of my wonderful family
The grandkids




Our brats, haha
