WoW, I have been away a LOOONG time.  I should start blogging my updates huh?  Well this is my latest finish, I made it for me mommy!!  I have to frame it. 

It's big girl panties from Lizzie kate.  I left the middle pair of panties plain, they were supposed to have some white dots on it and i thought beads would tacky it up and i didnt want to do french/colonial knots. 

I am still working on thine is the trick and the treat, will update with that soon.

Hope everyone is doing well. 

Much Love!!

Finishes Pumpa

Hello Everyone,  I hope all is well.  I finally finished my pumpkin.  It is a bit messed up.  It is supposed to be even on both sides, but of course, this is me, so it is NOT!!  My husband says that all pumpkins are crooked and not perfect it looks real. LOL. 

It took me a bit of time to finish this piece because i made it crooked and it upset me, so i kept putting it off. 

Anyway, Here it is:

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!! 

Much Love,

Last night i set my stitching on fire.  Yes, I really did.   I put it on the stove while I readied the towel and the teapot to tea stain it some more, the beautiful one i just made, and already started stitching on, when all of a sudden I smelled something burning.  It was on FIRE!!!  It burned a huge hole right through it.  I will have to take a pic and share it with you all.

Also, the night before, while stitching, I stabbed myself in the lip. 

Oy Vey!!

I've Been RAK'd, Finishes, My First Dye Job

Hello Everyone,  Thank you for coming to my blog!  So much to tell you all. 

First and most importantly I have been RAK'd!  I want to thank
and Pamela

I want you to know I am paying it forward also. 

Second my facebook group is taking off.  Please come join us

Third I have two finishes to share and two frame jobs.  They are a bit wonky, but I love them anyway...

This I made for my mom and just finished it and framed it:

I wanted to keep it but I am not a i made it for her while she was in the hospital last week.

This one is the cat I made before and just framed:
I just finished this one, as well:

I did it on aida, i tried it on the linen and just couldnt take it.  I have the chart still and the backing and the beads and string to sew it up, it's supposed to be a pin cushion, but I do not have the linen, i killed that, or the threads, i used those up, but I am giving the stuff that is left away, first who says they want it gets it.

Last but not least....I dyed my own fabric.  I am going to use it with Thine is the Trick and the Treat (Yes I finally got it!!!!!!  I am so happy!!!!) 

I used tea bags.  It has the tye dyed look i wanted.  I am so happy with how it came out.  Excuse the mess in the background! 

Well I hope everyone is doing well.  I look forward to reading your blogs!!

Much Love,

Started A Facebook Group

so the crosstitch challenge group was such a great idea i tried to spread the word on facebook to all my stitching friends, they loved the idea but hate yahoo groups i guess.  they asked me to make one on facebook, so I did.  so we are doing the 15 projects for the year, as well, but we are including big wips.  That is to encourage us to finish them.  SO we are choosing 15 projects we want to finish in a year.  we start jan 1st. 

also in the group in the albums i posted some patterns I am looking to get rid of for only a buck for shipping. 
The group is
