Wow, been a while!

In the hubbub of my days, this blog sometimes gets forgotten. I've been stitching ornaments for Christmas gifts and not really doing much of anything else besides working. I haven't disappeared though I promise!

Autumn Fairy Spirit FINISHED!!

I'm so excited! I haven't finished a large project since Stargazer many moons ago! So here she is in all her glory. I changed the mill hill beads to Delicas as I prefer those. I also chose not to stitch the outside frame from the chart.


I'm beading Autumn Fairy Spirit, so the next picture I will post of her will be a FINISH!! I'm so excited!

Been a while!!

It's been a while since I had a chance to post, basically because I've not been doing much stitching. We did a family 'vacation' the end of July--we stayed home and did stuff around the area here. It was a lot of fun, we got to see some natural beauty in NH and also got to go to the Museum of Fine Art in Boston! They had a free admission day :) That was a blast.

I'm finally stitching on Autumn Fairy Spirit again, and hope to have an updated WIP picture to show in the next few days :)

Happy Birthday Tory!

My beautiful daughter is 13 years old today! I cannot believe it's been that long since her sweet smile has been here, but it has! She is my shining star and I'm so proud to be her mom! I can't imagine a day without her laugh or talking to her.

So Happy Birthday my Tory! I hope you have fun at the concert tonight! I can't wait to see your face!

Autumn Fairy Spirit WIP July

I haven't had a lot of time to stitch lately, but I finaly got the big wing finished. That thing has been looming over me and I got it done! There's still more to do but she's closer to being done!

Purple Passion Finish!

Yes I finished something! I'm so excited! I stitched on Silvery Moon Belfast linen with Gloriana Seaweed silk. There's PB10 there for sparkle but it's very subtle. I changed the beads from silver to a purple Delica mix!

Purple Passion Progress

I got so good stitching time in over the last few days. Saturday was my birthday and of course the 4th of July, and I didn't have to work either day! This gave me some time to stitch and celebrate! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Here is an updated picture of Purple Passion by Keslyn's. I really am enjoying this chart!

Getting the scrapping bug again...

I can feel it, that itch to scrapbook. I'm definitely ruled by which way the desire flows that's for sure. Usually it's one or the other but lately it's been the urge to scrapbook AND the desire to stitch. What a dither! Stitching has won lately and I'll be updating with a new picture of Purple Passion shortly. I only stitch on my days off ( I work part time at a bookstore) so it's only been worked on a couple of days. I'm really enjoying the pattern and the colors! It's a fast stitch too.

Coming up on the 4th of July holiday here, and that's always been fun since my birthday is July 3rd. When I was little, I used to think the fireworks were just for my birthday! My parents let me think that too! Boy was I disappointed!

Another New Start!!

I admit it-- I have startitis! I get bored with my current stuff and nothing will do until I find something new (hopefully in my stash!) and begin the process of matching fabric with chart and floss. It's a rush, an excitement of possibilities! The first stitch makes my heart trip a bit and I love watching the beginning of the design take shape.

So yesterday I gave in to my startitis and started Keslyn's Purple Passion. TO see this design and the other ones Keslyn's offers go visit their website.

Here's the picture of my start. I'm using Gloriana Seaweed and Silvery Moon Belfast Linen. I think it looks yummy! I'll post more when it's further along!

Autumn Fairy Spirit WIP Progress

Slowly I want to add WIP pictures of all my WIPs and figure out how far along I am on them but for now we'll start with one! I'd say I'm 70% done with her but there's so much more to go. She's Autumn Faery Spirit from Passione Ricamo done on Snickerdoodles Belfast Linen from the now gone SMF.

Back in the saddle again

Okay, we'll try this blogging thing again.... I used to have a blog, but stopped posting in it after my mother passed away.

So as the title suggests I have two main hobbies-- Cross stitching, my first love. My obsessional love as it were. Now add scrapbooking, getting to be a close second love and obsession. My family tolerates me I swear LOL.

So here is where I'll detail my foibles and follies! I know everyone is most excited :)
