BBD finish


I now have another new WIP

Prairie Schooler " When Witches Go Riding"

I didnt start it before I finished

Blackbird Designs "Where My Heart Blooms" I had so many issues with this design like the windows and frogging the border (not just one time, but several)

I finished stitching this Mary Garry witch, all I have to do is find time to stitch another border to make it into a floss tag? maybe

I would like to Congratulate Dawn and her family on the birth of their beautiful baby girl and Wish the Best of Luck to them.

Well, that's all for now, time to settle down for the nite and stitch.

Have a great start of the week everyone, Thanks for visiting.

Stitch a Witch

Good evening! fellow stitchers,

I thought I would take a moment tonite to share something I dug out and started this evening. I read the Tokens and Trifles newsletter today. And just knew that last year I bought the stuff to make the witch.

If you have never visited the website, do so, it has some really cool freebies. I have made some with the perforated paper(cheaper) They have some awesome designs.

Look at my little sweetie pie sitting right next to one of my DMC cases. Do ya think someday I will turn my back and she will have them scattered all over???
Looks guilty to me, lol

Grandma loves her baby yes! She do!!

Stay tuned for a finish and a new start. I just didn't feel like taking and posting the photo's tonite.

Happy Autumn!

Happy Stitching!

Dance this way for a drawing

Put on your dancing shoes and dance with me
"My Needle's Work" by Little House Needleworks. Fabric unknown.
I won it over at Sharon's blog awhile ago.

I am going to have a draw for the chart, (I hope Sharon don't mind me passing it on).
I am going to take Cathey's idea and only make it eligible if you have ever commented or e-mailed me about my blog. I will draw a name early next week.
I picked this up at the library today. Has anyone ever read it?

I am going to work diligently on my BBD now, so maybe another happy dance will be in order. I really have to get some of these WIP's outta my way, if I want to start some new things.

Happy Stitching!!

Don't forget to floss!!!!

Holey Sheet

I finished Holey Sheet by Poppy Kreations last nite and put it in it's frame this morning. I don't have a clue to what color fabby I used except it's orange,lol

The other day I was painting above our new screen door and look what my little eye spies,

What the heck is this tree frog doing there? maybe eating spiders and bugs by the light??? I can see his little froggy feet prints going up and down my glass window, lol.
Free Cross Stitch Patterns – Index of Free Cross Stitch Patterns never seen this before and thought I would pass it on
It's soggy here, so I guess I will go surf and then stitch.
Stitch On!!!

Halloween's Sudden Boo and Happy Dance

Someone is teasing me this morning. This proves my camera is not faster then the paw, lol

Ahhh! here we go, Thank you Ms Smidget, maybe is was the mice that were enticing her, or maybe that creepy spider.

For a freebie I still have alot to go.

Halloween's Sudden Boo by Barbara Ana
EDITED: to add the link where to find CyberStitchers Cross-Stitch Picture Galleries: Free Cross-Stitch Patterns

I am sure alot of you stitched the freebie Hedgehog Quaker. Well, I stitched it too and threw in the bin. I dug it out this weekend stitched a border and made it into a floss tag. I used GAST cornflower

I forgot to take a photo of the back, oh, it's just my initials anyway.

Happy Stitching!

Don't forget to floss each and everyday

Look what the UPS guy just brought to me on this dreary rainy day.

Just Nan's Scream House.
I hope I can put it together o.k.
Wish me luck!

I didn't know when to expect it :) The shipping was just over 12.00 (yikes), but it was worth it.
Thank You so much for the comments of encouragement on ATS

Happy Stitching!!

ATS finally an update

Hi! Here is an update on And They Sinned. The last time I posted was on 5/09

The stitch count is 809 X 169

I started it 01/01/08

It is bigger then Kellie, see her fingers, lol.

I am stitching on 36ct Edinburgh Flax with GAST 1 over 2.

I am awaiting a color for the angel. I ordered it thru J.J's sale over the weekend. Yea!! a stash sale. I went alittle over board, but hey I haven't had a good stitchy stash purchase for awhile, lol. I ordered most of the krenkik and beads for the ToT fairy.

BTW! Does anyone have any good suggestion for a fabby color for the ToT fairy and or the Mirabilia Halloween fairy, I just find the color of the fabby to be so drab. I would really like a splash of color. I really don't have a good LNS close by to do a toss floss.

Happy Stitching!!

Contest update

This is all I stitched on last night. We went tubing down the Kishwaukee River today, that was alot of fun, but now I am wore out.

Stitchin Times Five ask me if it was a BOAF cat on the floss tag, and the answer is No! It is in the contest design, so there's another hint. The fabby is Over the Top purple, I believe.
Happy stitching!
Happy guessing!!
