Vacation is over!

My job gives me a 5 week vacation in the summer and I spent some of that time stitching.  I got a lot completed.  🙂

Peace by Imaginating -completed and my starting point at the beginning of July.

My LNS was having a 40% off sale for charts 2015 and older, so of course, I had to make some purchases.


I also got “I love you more than all the stars” by Bent Creek.  I stitched on bookmark fabric.  One of the twins claimed this right away for his room.


I also finished Winter Quilt by Imaginating.  I hadn’t worked on this one since 2013!

I also finished Pink Flamingos by Tiny Modernist.


I am working on the Chocolate pattern from Kit and Bixby now but forgot to take a picture.  Back to work, school and sports for the kids means my stitching time is practically gone.  We’ll see how far I get.  See ya next time,





Gone Missing….Again


My family’s crazy spring schedule has really cut into my stitching time.  I did manage to finish Promise Me by Lizzie Kate for my MIL’s birthday.

The only other project that I worked on was Peace by Imaginating.  Here is my progress since my last update in March.


Until Next Time,




I picked up an already started project instead of a new one.  Yay for me!  Here is my progress since last time I worked on this one.  I stitched the white snowflake and started the P in peace.  I am in love with the colors so I am not sure why I put this one down!


It’s Finished!

I finished Easter Egg Hunt by Mill Hill Beads.  It didn’t take me too long, considering I don’t have much time to stitch.  I absolutely love this one!  Who knows what my next project will be?  🙂


Just a quick update

Here is my progress on Easter Egg Hunt.  I am getting there.


One of the local libraries has an annual craft supply sale.  People donate unwanted craft supplies and the library keeps the profits.  I donated a lot of cross stitch books, magazines and kits that I knew I wouldn’t use.  It was a great way to pare down!  I only spent $3 on the  kits below .  I think this was successful all the way around!  Now I just have to learn how to do plastic canvas.  haha




It’s a new year!

I have to laugh when I see that my last post was a month ago.  I was so sure I would finish my pumpkins that weekend.  Needless to say December flew by and I didn’t finish them until last week during Winter break.  I decided not to add the pumpkins on parade words.  I also cut my fabric too small and had to trim the vines on the side.  Here it is!


I also made this freebie from Lizzie Kate. I didn’t get to make it into a card as planned but it will be ready for next year, right?


I just started on a Mill Hill Bead kit for Easter called Egg Hunt.  I like winter time as our schedules are a little less busy and  I feel like I have more time to stitch.  Here is what the completed chart will look like and my start.
