I couldn't resist putting in a few stitches last night. I was so excited about the sampler pocket I forgot to take a pic of what I stitched, another day, another post.

Small Token and others things

Happy Spring days!!!!

I finished the small for the 2012 smalls BLOG for March

Small Token by Blackbird Designs
mystery linen w/CC threads filled with crushed walnuts

I finished Bloom by M designs found in the March/April 2011 JCS magazine

The linen is green. I thought I had the perfect fabric for a pillow, but it didn't match like I thought it would, a shopping I will go

I stitched a little on Hoodoo Voodoo

by The Primitive Needle

36ct cinnamon roll linen w/ WDW, my camera didn't cooperate with the colors today

It's been so nice, I haven't been in to be on the computer. I am afraid, very afraid to open my google reader, lol

It's going to rain so I will go through them the next couple of days and play catch up

I also want to sew my Prim Sisters

Anna is planning on coming down on Sunday to stitch with me, yay!!!

Have a beautiful up coming weekend

Congrats! ladies

Thank You!!! to all that entered

An Irish Prayer for all my readers

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer

Have a great day

Watch out if your not wearing green, I pinch!

Happy Sunday!!!

I have over 400 followers
Thank You!~
Thank You!~
Thanks You!~

To show my appreciation I'm having a give-away

I went shopping at my LNS and picked up

#1 Little House Needleworks (who doesn't love LHN) no one I know of
"My Needle's Work" kit
Chart & CC threads included
I believe I won the same kit sometime ago. I stitched it and throughly enjoyed.

#2 The Prairie Schooler (another loved designer)


chart only

I picked this one because it seemed everyone liked my 2 finishes I did with this pattern

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, old and new followers.

Tell me which one you prefer, I am really hoping you like either one

It doesn't matter where you live, I'll ship it there

I will pick winner's on the 17th St. Patrick's Day

Good Luck!!!!

Prim Sisters

Happy Thursday!!

I finished stitching Prim Sisters School of Needlework last night

by Pineberry Lane
30ct Ligonier latte linen w/DMC

The kit came with the material (shown above) that is to be made into a hanging sampler pocket
This is what the back is suppose to look like

I have never did this kind if finishing, so I'm really praying I can pull it off

It might be a few days weeks before I show it done

I noticed I have 400 followers, Thanks so much!!!! I think that calls for a give-away

let me put something together, I'll post it in a few days

That makes my day :)

Happy finishing!!!!
