Yipeee!!!!

Good Morning!!
Well, it's 2:40 am and I can't sleep so I thought I would post a few little things I have did the last couple of days.

But before that I have fabulous news. Now many of you know that I have been longing to meet someone who stitches.

Get this! Eva sent me e-mail saying the gals were meeting up on the 21st at Welcome-Stitchery and ask me to join them. How cool is that? I am so excited.
O.K. what have I been up to? This...


We are not coffee drinkers, therefore we don't own a coffee brewer, so I went to a gas station and bought a cup of black coffee, dunked it and baked it, 18 ct Aida. The lighting under my day lamp is still not the best at this time of night.
I think I will stitch this

"Welcome Home" by Birds of a Feather, gotta love them chipmunks.

I tried to start Priness Parade, but it didn't get too far.

I also have made some beaded scissor FOB's for my Jamie and Sophia Gingher

That's it for now.

Happy Stitching!!!!

Congratulations on your dyeing attempt. The fabric came out so great.
A meeting and stitch-in at a LNS is always fun. I have never attended such an event because I don't have LNSs. Will it be the 14th next month?
Great scissor fobs!

Oh, that's a great BOAF! I've never seen it before. And I am seriously LMAO at the thought of going out to buy a cup of coffee to do coffee-dyeing! That's going to be my chuckle for the day. DH and I can't make it through the morning without our cup of the heavenly brew .... Happily addicted. (But I only drink 2 cups a day, so it's not a bad addiction, right? LOL.)

Great job on the dyeing, and I can't wait to see how it stitches up. And I'm so happy for you that you'll get to meet some other stitchers IRL. ENJOY!!!

Siobhan said...

Enjoy your meeting! That is so fun, hope it goes even better than you expect. :) The coffee dyed fabric looks great, and that BOAF chart is adorable! Love the fobs, too.

That's wonderful you've found some stitchers to hang with, a stitching group is such fun. Your fabric looks fantastic, you did a great job on it, perfect for samplers and such like Welcome Home. Looking forward to seeing your progress on it, the chipmunks are cute. The scissor fobs look very pretty too, you've been busy.
