Hello friends! I have lots and lots to share today, so be sure to read / scroll *all the way to the end* of the post so you don't miss anything! :-)
Here's my finished Roly Poly bear, all ready to be washed and sent out to be made into a quilt. I finished it a few days before I expected, so I'm going to stitch on Day One from my Crazy 15 today through Saturday. Sunday I'll start working on G is for Girl. Too fun!
|Day One - Dimensions "Morning Lake"|
Remember how I was doing some organizing in the last post? Well, I did a little more. I looked through each of the projects that I put into my binders and wrote down what I needed for them, then I roughly figured how many days or weeks each project would take. I figured low in my estimate of stitches per week, so I know that it may not take me as long as I'm figuring, but if it did, I have enough in my three binders, plus the three kits that my dh got me for Christmas, to keep me stitching for two and a half years! That being said, I have a few things I'd like to offer for sale, and then.... if you page down... I'd like to start a Traveling Stash Box.
First, the "for sale" items. I prefer paypal, and you can email me at tjtrax at yahoo dot com, if you're interested. Prices include shipping.
|Bent Creek Red Thread Border Pack with Snaps and Buttons (Red Hearts & Stars) and First Pattern of the series Retail $15.00 - Asking $5.00|
|CCN Pumpkin Cottage - Retail $8 - Asking $4|
|LHN - Blessed are the Meek (Chart Only) - $3|
OK! On to the fun stuff! I've been so blessed to have received a number of blog candies in the past six months or so, and I've pulled things from each and added them to my stash of threads, fabrics, patterns, scissors, etc. But after paring down my stash to fit in my binders, I find that there are many lovely stitching things that I just know I won't be using in the next year or two and I'd love to pass them on. So, here's what I've done. I'm going to start a "Traveling Stash Box" (or Flat Rate Envelope... we'll see!). I'm going to fill it with the things you see below... There are some patterns (LHN, Shakespeare's Peddler, Trilogy, Lizzie Kate...), threads, linen, buttons.... a little of everything. Well, except scissors. I didn't seem to be able to part with any of my scissors! The rule is that when you get the Traveling Stash, you go through and take what you'd like. Then you add to the box as many things as you've taken out... plus some extra, if you'd like, and then offer it on your blog. And on and on it goes. :-) If you're interested, just mention it in your comment and I'll draw a name next Wednesday.
BTW, if you see anything that I won in your blog candy in my Traveling Stash pile, please don't be offended! Rest assured that I have treats tucked away from each stitching package that I've ever received!! :-) I just thought this would be a fun way to share my joy and your generosity with others !!
Don't forget that it is Friday Night Sew In tomorrow! I know I'll be stitching, although I'm not sure I'll get the sewing machine pulled out. We'll see!
