Finally Finished

I was determined this weekend to get this done. So it is finally cross stitched and finished. It came with a frame but I chose to finish as a "little pillow" to hang up. It is called Stone Path Studio Tuscan Cottage by Dimensions. I backed with the green fabric that came with the kit to frame it.  I am so happy it is done.
Hope you all were able to stitch. Until Next time,

Told you I needed WDW for my alligator. So today I go to the LNS near me. Looking on the rack.....hmmm no Cactus. So I ask at the counter they need to order for me.

So...........I ordered it - - now will wait for it to come in . Still working on the dimensions kit. Will post a pic this weekend of my progress. Slow going this week. Need to put stitches in it to complete it.

On the right side of my blog, I put the link to the TED video of Jamie Mr X stitch Chalmers. Very interesting talk. I do kits and charts however if for some reason I miss a stitch and I dont catch it I continue on.
Hope you are able to stitch,
Til next time,

Knitting and some stitching


Been doing some knitting of scarf.

Worked on my alligator towel but ran out of WDW cactus over dye. Was planning on picking it up after work but had to work later due to a meeting. Hopefully I will get some this week. Last night after I ran out of thread on the alligator I picked up  a UFO.

 I Hope to work on this until I can get back to my alligator. Not much left to do but  need to stick to my plan on stitching every day even if its just for a few minutes.

Hope you all were able to stitch,
Until next time,

Huck Towel Finish

Finished the Huck embroidery towel today after coming back from the grocery store. Here is a pic of it. Been cool and raining for the last two days. Hope you all are able to stitch.

Working on my Huck embroidery towel, about 1/2 done.  One of my pine mountain pillows needed a form that fit it so I made that today. Also wood glued a basket top that had a split in it. Also knitting a scarf. Spent Friday with friends brunch then hung out for the rest of the day at their house. Pizza for dinner.  Yesterday we played WOW and did some chores, nothing exciting. Watched part of  the Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I plan on watching the whole movie when it comes back on. Off the the grocery store.  Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Until next time. Sue n MD.

Wrapping it up


Not much cross stitching down this year. Just two finished ornaments.

 Been knitting "ruffle" scarfs. Recently started a Huck embroidery towel that I had in my stash. About a 1/5 though the pattern. Had to look at YouTube to ensure that I was stitching it correctly. Doing that now. When I started I was going through the fabric instead of on top of it. I will finish this one, but have not seen another pattern I like. This is a pic I found of the kit. Will post mine when completed.

Did do some reading this year. Here are the books I read:
  • Summers Days Susan Mallery
  • Only His Susan Mallery
  • Only Yours Susan Mallery
  • Only Mine Susan Mallery
  • Finding Perfect Susan Mallery
  • Almost Perfect Susan Mallery
  • Chasing Perfect Susan Mallery
  • The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
  • Defending Jacob William Landay
  • Speak Laurie Halse Anderson
  • Big Girl Panties Stephanie Evanovich
  • Power Play Danielle Steel
  • Accused Lisa Scottoline
  • Good Girls Dont Victoria Dahl
  • See you at Harrys Jo Knowles
  • Bad Monkey Carl Hiassen
Hope you had a good 2014. Wishing you a Happy and Healthly 2015. Until next time.
