AAFG and Witchy Washy

Hi! I just had to post to tell you I finally received my JJ's order yesterday. Here is what I got.





And A Forest Grew with fabby, I am so excited to finally start it.


Also received SB /Trick or Treat, misc. Sampler threads and the buttons for WW.


I went to Hobby Lobby this morning, which was a no-no. I just ran in to get a few DMC colors for AAFG and look what I else I just happened to pick up, lol.
Snowman latch hook rug, Care Bear blankie to stitch for Brianna and a

Punchneedle kit. Has anyone ever did one? Any pointers?

And here's my finished Witchy Washy with buttons and all. I think I will take that one to the framers with CDC (no its not done yet). We'll see about the frame.


Brianna now weighs a whooping 7 lbs. 5 oz. She is a little porkers compared to the 3 lbs. She is still on the heart monitor with no incidents. Hooray!!!



Anyone who is doing AAFG, do you use one or two threads and do you like it?
I think I am going to use one.

I have to quit buying... I just have way too much stuff going.
I have seen the Quaker Christmas Sampler on quite a few blogs and I love it.
I also love the Medieval Pheasant Tapestry too.
How do I fit more hours in a day??
Thank You for all the e-mails and comments.
I am so honored that each and everyone of you keep coming back to visit me. You all inspire me so much.
Keep on stitchin"
Have a great weekend all.

This is a great stash your purchased. Witchy Washy looks really good. I would love to see it framed.

Brianna is so cute and looks really healthy. They put on so much weight in the first six months.

Brianna is so sweet...what a little doll!

Witchy Washy is fab - be sure to post a pic when you frame it!

I'm stitching AAFG at the moment...I'm using one thread over two,(except I keep forgetting and thread the needle with two strands..doh! LOL) I like how it looks - kind of delicate.

Oh my God, Brianna is such a treasure. What a beauty she has turned out to be. Does she take after her Gramma!. As you know, I just love Witchy Washy. It sure looks nice with all the buttons. I agree about Quaker Christmas I love that one too. I no longer pretend I am going to stitch everything I just buy the patterns because I love them.

First of all Brianna is just adorable and makes me want to snuggle and kiss her LOL! Love how your Witchy Washy turned out, I know it will look great framed. As for AAFG, I have this as well and want to start it as my next big project, so will be interested to see how others are stitching it. Thank you for sharing Ranae!

Lovely new stash... I just close my eyes and buy anyhow! It can be very frustating when a design goes out of print!

What a beautiful baby. I'm glad that she's doing ok.

Love your Witchy Washy. It should look lovely when framed. What a great collection of stash. I have so many things that I want to do that I think I'll be 200 by the time I get to do them. The only trouble is that I won't be able to read the graphs etc. to do them.
