Casting a Spell

I made progress over the weekend painting and stitching more of the 6 of 10 designs for the box.
I'm not exactly sure how to finsh the other boxes, the instructions say something about jello boxes. I do better looking at pictures of instructions then reading them, lol

Many of you that are on facebook have seen pictures of my new car, yay!
A 2012 Hyundai Sonanta SE turbo, I love it.
I haven't taken a picture with my camera, so I don't have one to upload just yet.
I haven't figured out how to put pictures from my droid on a post, directly from my phone

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful spring weather. I know I am.

Happy Stitches!!!!

The First Robin of Spring

Happy Thursday!!!

I finished this freebie, finally...

The First Robin of Spring by Elizabeth Foster from 2003. I believe it was a freebie with a online order. I made it in a little pillow cushion for my smalls basket

When Anna was here a few Sundays ago, she twisted my arm ( I know, mean, right??!!)to stitch on Quaker Christmas. I'm glad she did because I love the progress I made.

Enough of Christmas.

Let's get on with my favorite... Halloween

I gathered all my Casting a Spell things together to paint the box.

As you can see I already stitched 2 of the 10 of the designs

Soooo, after Zumba class tonight I will paint the box. I was going to do it after this post, but after seeing I had 350 in my google reader, I think I'll try to tackle some of them

I'll leave you with snaps of GD Brianna by the daffodils

Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of my world

Happy Spring!!!!

A Tisket, A Tasket, A surprise

Happy Tuesday!!!!

I finished A Tisket A Tasket by Little By Little

It was the March small for the 2012 Year of Smalls BLOG

Stitched on 32ct cream

I thought the linen was a little to bright for me, so I soaked it in coffee then baked it
The results...

A tisket a tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it,
I dropped it,
And on the way I dropped it
A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket

I then finished it in a small pillow

A surprise in my mailbox, woohoo!!!!!

Nataly sent me in appreciation of me drawing her name for the LHN chart and threads
some of her needles and the best part they are my favorite color purple

Thank you so much for thinking of me. I have admired and even tried to win some of these on her blog

They are fantastic and so pretty.

Thanks again, Nataly

Anna was down from Wisconsin to stitch with me on a Sunday. She actually got me stitching on A Quaker Christmas a long lost WIP, lol. I will post pictures of it on my next post

Happy Stitching!!!!!
