Stitchfest 2012

Yesterday I attended our annual Stitchfest sponsored by our local cross stitch shop.  It's full of stitching, buying more stash, eating and enjoy the company of like-minded ladies.  Just a few pics from the event. 

Could not for the life of me get the last picture to turn the right way but that was what I was working on throughout the day. (when I wasn't buying more patterns)  I'm already signed up for next year's event since there tends to be a waiting list and I don't want to lose my spot. 
So, till next time, yunz crazy guys....

Fall already???

Well it's almost fall and how time as flown. I haven't posted much but I sure gave been craft busy. Here's a little sampling if some of my projects...

Okay, so there's been a little more drawing than stitching but I have been stitching quite a bit.  Working on some Lizzie Kate Flips and now some small Halloween ornies that I'll show soon.  I have a feeling I'll be picking up a crochet hook soon too with the cool weather coming in. 
Hey, I learned how to post from my iphone so maybe I'll remember to post more!!!  Let's hope so!

Well, that's all for now.....till next time, yinz crazy guys!

Harry Potter...

Well got to spend a great evening with my lovely stitching lady friends and working on my Hogwarts crest and tho I'm not too far on it, this stitching is going along at a nice pace. And just for the record, it's a free pattern on the Internet. I believe it's from a site called littlemojo but you can also google Hogwarts crest cross stitch pattern. I'm changing the bottom left of the pattern as most of the crests are shown as a yellow background and the pattern is calling for antique blue.
So with that said, I'm back to finish a little more stitching till bedtime. Till next time yunz crazy guys!

Forgive me...

Don't be mad at me for not blogging....I have a reason. I just never sit long enough at my home computer to do it. I'm always crafting. But guess what? I found the app to blog from my phone....and that means more blog posts! Woo HOO! So let's see if I can do this and I will be up and running with my latest craft goodies! Till next time yunz crazy guys!

Hermit Weekend....

Well, this is my first International Hermit Weekend post. (see sidebar if you want to participate too) I was supposed to post by Tuesday, but well....I'm a procastinator as you can see. I promise to do better next month.
Unfortunately and as always.....Sir Echo got in the way. He insists on being right in front and on top and in the way of every stitching project I do. And he always seems to know exactly what part of the pattern I'm working on so he can sit on it....which by the way is the 2011 Littlehouse Needleworks Ornament collection.

Then he has the nerve to look at me like, "yeah...well...whadda you lookin' at??"

So, that was my third weekend of the month Hermit post.....I'm sure there will be alot more of these as I "hermit" alot with my stitching.
So, till next time, yunz crazy guys!

For a Special Friend...

Hubby always says I should keep the things I make instead of giving them away as they are so nice. But I have great joy in giving things to people who I know will appreciate the gift.
I have a dear stitching friend who is going through some health treatments right now and I thought I would cheer and surprise her with a little something to let her know I'm thinking about her and praying for her.
So, I made her this altoid tin scissor box with a magnetic insert.

I also added this super easy needle keep. I actually bought one when I was on vacation once and just figured out the pattern on my own. So so easy and great stitcher gifts.

My friend had actually given me a bunch of left over material that she used in backings on some of her ornaments that she had stitched. I liked this combination so I used the cupcake theme to make these items for her as a thank you and something to let her know I'm missing her stitching with us. I'm sure we'll be seeing her soon.

Also for all you stitchers, check out my new button for the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend.....sounds like fun and you do it in your own home once a month. Check it out.

So, till next time, yinz crazy guys!
