A Little Progress and A Little Giveaway

Hi all!

My mom's been in the hospital this week and I haven't had much time to sit and stitch, so here's my progress on Old MacDonald...

Anyone interested in a few bits and bobs??  I have a free card kit with fabric and threads, the leftover fabric and threads from a Pine Mountain "Bless You" pillow, and a Prairie Schooler mini card to pass along.  Just mention in the comments if you are interested and if there is more than one I'll draw a name before I post next.

I pray all of you on the East Coast are safely weathering your storm.  We thought of you last night when we saw this rainbow around the moon.  Well... actually it is a 22 degree halo, but it looked like a rainbow!!!

I've been making out my list of things to stitch next year and I need to sort through what fabric and floss I still need.  JoAnn's has a 25% off your entire purchase coupon next week, which is a great time to pick up some DMC!!  You can see my list (that will probably change 20 times!!!) on my 2013 Stitching Challenge page if you'd like.  Any idea what my theme for next year is??

Talk to you soon!



A Finish and a Start!

Yay!  I have a finish!  Last week my dear, wonderful husband whisked me away to a hotel for a night and let me sit and stitch at the hotel while he attended a meeting the next day.  It was like my own little stitching retreat.  I drank coffee, listened to an audio drama of "A Christmas Carol" and part of "Jane Eyre" and worked for hours and hours on my "Cow Over the Moon" piece.  With just a few more hours work....

TA DA!!!

As a reward for finishing my first HAED chart, I bought a "mini" size chart at their Columbus Day sale.  When I looked at the amount of pages in said mini chart I was surprised!  It's still huge!  I won't be starting on that one quite yet.  I need to decide what count fabric to use...

My next project is this sweet Prairie Schooler Farm sampler for a Christmas present.
It seems like it is going to be an enjoyable stitch as well!

Thanks for stopping by!!!




I didn't have a ton of time to stitch this week, but I did finish a motif from the CCN January Cottage chart that Heather let me borrow and I worked some more on my "Cow Over the Moon" piece.  Some pictures...

When I finish Cow Over the Moon, I'll start a Prairie Schooler piece that I need to finish by Christmas.  In the meantime I'm gathering charts and kitting up projects for my 2013 Stitching Goals.  I don't plan to start them all in January, but I have a list of projects I'd love to finish next year.  Some I've started and some I haven't, just to give me a good mix.  I'll post my list as the new year gets closer!

OK, I'm off to post my pictures to the Handcrafted Holiday Sew and Stitch Along group.  
Happy Stitching!


Looking For...

Hi everyone!

I'm making plans for my next year's stitching and I have three charts I would love to get hold of.  Would any of you happen to have these and be willing to part with them??  My stamping budget is very low, so I might have to work out a trade of some sort. : )
