April ORTs.....


It's It's Daffycat is our host for our TUSAL each month but I know she had started a new job.  You can click on her blog name to find out more about our TUSAL each month.

Here is mine for the month of March.  I did have some but not very much because I was sick a lot this past month.  Thankfully I am on the mend, but I still have that nagging cough.  Hopefully it will go away soon!


That's all I have for now.
Happy Stitching!

March Smalls SAL.....



Mary's Threads is our host for our Smalls SAL each month.  Please click on her blog name to be taken to her blog to see what all we have been doing and stitching.

I managed to get a PS 2002 Santa stitched up for a Christmas gift this year.  I haven't done the finishing because I have been so sick with a cold and chest congestion that has literally knocked me off my feet for almost 2 weeks.  This is also the reason for me NOT getting my March Smalls posted on time last Friday.

So on to the actual picture for you to see my PS Santa.  I hope to get him finished up into the actual ornament this week.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.  I do hope to start posting more things about my stitching soon.

Happy Stitching!

Mar TUSAL.....


Sharon of It's Daffycat is our host for our TUSAL.  And as you can see.....I am late in posting mine.  I was supposed to have posted on Mar 6.  I had gotten back from the Nashville Needlework Market in plenty of time to post it but in all honesty, I just plain forgot.  I did not have it listed on my kitchen calendar nor my stitching calendar.  Shame on me.

But here is my ORTs for the month of Feb all the way up til today.   Now I get to add them to my bigger jar which at the moment still doesn't have too much from Jan and Feb.



Now I am off to stitch some as I want to get an ornament for a friend started for this year's Christmas present.

Happy Stitching!

February Smalls ....


Hi everyone.  Yep....I am a few days late for posting my Smalls but I had a very busy Fri for posting day.  You can join our SAL by clicking on this link to Mary's Thread.  We post on the last Friday of every month, and I really did mean to this past Friday.  However I had some unexpected appointments to come up.

Here is one of the things I did manage to stitch up and get totally finished.  It is The Primitive Hare Valentine freebie!!!  I used 36ct Sassy's Fabric and a HDF Gandy Tangopremium silk to stitch it in.  I filled it with crushed walnut shells to give it a little bit of weight.


I also finished a small for a Valentine Exchange that Sassy Jack's Stitchery organized.  We were to take a Plum Street Sampler chart and take a portion of it to make in to a small.  It could be made into any kind of small such as a pincushion, needlebook, scissor fob, etc.  I used the chart Remember Me and took a small portion and made it into a small pincushion .... again filled with crushed walnut shells and chenille trim around it.  I thought it turned out really nice.


I am off to stitch the day away and take care of a very sick hubby. 

HAPPY STITCHING EVERYONE!

February ORTs.....


Sharon of It's Daffycat had posted our TUSAL on Monday, Feb 4.  She is our host for our TUSAL and you can click on her blog name to find out more about this group.

Sadly, I was NOT feeling well on Monday so I did not do much of anything, let alone check email.  Shame on me.  But I now have it on my calender all the dates for my TUSAL posting dates so I won't forget them in  the future.

I was gone a lot traveling last year so I am hoping to get back into the habit of posting on my blog. 

Here is my ORTs for our TUSAL posting!!!


Now I am off to make some lunch and then settle in for some serious stitching today because we have 100% chance of rain scheduled to happen today.  Thank goodness I have already been this morning to have my labs drawn and back home before this downpour settled in!!

HAPPY STITCHING!!!!

January Smalls.....

Wow I really can't believe how I have not even posted a Happy New Year Post or anything else for this month.  Now I am even late posting my January Smalls.  I hope this is no indication of me being late for everything this year.  So let's get on with the posting of some stitching projects!!!!


Mary of Mary's Thread has taken over the posting for our Smalls SAL now for each month.  If you want to join in, please click her blog link that is highlighted or our Smalls SAL banner shown here and it will take you to her blog to see what to do about joining in.

The first project I am showing was a birthday gift, and it is a Stacy Nash chart that I made into a pincushion.  I used most of the colors listed on the chart with the exception of the red color for the flowers as I chose something else to match the backing fabric.  I love it so much I think I am going to stitch me one.



The next project I want to show you is from BBD For My Friend book.  This was also another birthday gift!!!  I used the colors called for on the chart but the box is bigger than what was called for the finishing.  I liked a little more linen showing around the edges than what was on the design in the book.


And a side view.....


Now I am off to stitch on a small for a Valentine finish to have to display for next month! Until then... Happy Stitching!

Dec Smalls post.....


Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host for our monthly Smalls SAL.  You can click on her blog name, Stitching Lotus, to find out more about this wonderful SAL.

I know I have been very negligent since my last blog post.  I apologize for that once again, but I also went back home for Thanksgiving and then my husband and I did some traveling for our 26th anniversary!

But for that's for a later post to share pictures with you.  For now, I am posting for our December Smalls post of some ornaments I made for this years Christmas gifts to close friends.

This first small is from Heartstring Samplery called Winter Snow.  It was such a fun stitch, and I stitched it with the linen and threads called for.  I made a small beaded hanger, and I chose to leave a little more space out from the stitching portion of the stocking.  I have linen to stitch this one for myself for the new year.


This 2nd ornament is by Handblessings called Sharing The Christmas Story.


The last one I can not remember the designer's name.  I am so sorry.  This was also a Christmas gift for a friend.


That is all I have to share for my Smalls this month.  I will be stitching the rest of the day today and ringing in the New Year with my family!

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY STITCHING!!!
