So this is not exactly a finish, its more of a refinish. I finished this a while back but didnt like the cording I put around it. It was a green tri color and I was just never thrilled with it so today I redid it and used a pink cording that I made. I like it better.

And here is what I stitched last night. Its Spring Heart Hop by Cottage Island Needle Arts. I changed the colors to pink of course and loved stitching the bunny. Not sure what I'm going to make it into though, it is supposed to be a pincushion...I will probably go with that.....then again.

I don't think I will get anything stitched this weekend. I have some finishing to do for other people.

Thanks for stopping by. See you Monday!

I have another finish!!!  This is Happy Snowman by Bent Creek. Now I tell you, this is the PERFECT item to stitch. It took all of 30 minutes , bwahahahahahaaaa.  The finishing did not take a lot longer, maybe an hour.  Very easy too.

I like the way he turned out. Maybe I should have put a button or something in the center of the bow, I'm not sure about that though.

I got the idea from a Just Cross Stitch Ornaments preview magazine from 2009 or so. The magazine had this very cute peppermint candy sucker on the front of it.  I wish I had that pattern, it would be fun to stitch, although it would take longer than this little guy did. 

I'm not sure what is next to stitch. I'm in a Halloween exchange. I should probably get started on that because it has to go out by the 15th of September I think.  I'm thinking about stitching Something Wicked by La d da.  I love that design. 

Ok, I'm off for the day, off to find something to stitch. I guess I can let that Halloween one go a little longer, I do still have 2 weeks............yes Virgina I am a procrastinator..........

See you tomorrow.

So here it is, another finish. I'm on a roll folks.  This is Christmas Sheep by Just Nan. I used a hand dyed lugana by Silkweavers, no idea what the name of it is.

I think its a nice little design but then it has four sheep in it so there can't really be anything wrong with it........can there?

Well I'm trying to clean the house this morning, it really  needs it, I've been very lazy in many respects.  So that means stitching is on hold until I'm done.

My plan is to stitch something today, something small I'm guessing. Maybe at some point I will drag And a Garden Grew back out.  I would really love to see that done.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Finished up Peek a Boo pincushion by Indigo Rose just a few minutes ago. I crocheted an edging for it and I think its pretty cute. I don't like it as well as the first one I made but I could not find the buttons for it that I used before. So I went with some brown ones and brown is not my favorite color for anything. I had tons of buttons but none the right shade of red/burgundy, pink or green, go figure.

So I'm off now to stitch Christmas Sheep by Just Nan. I think it will stitch up fast and then my plan is to finish it into a Christmas Ornament.

See you tomorrow!

Drum roll please...... I finally finished something. I started it last night and its done today. It's Reindeer Snow Globe by Bent Creek.  Here's a pic in case you don't believe me :)

It was small and a quick stitch and I didn't even hate doing it and I think....shhhh..... I'm saying this quietly in case I have to take it back.......I think I'm over my stitching slump which has lasted about 4 months.  I've had them before but never had them last longer than about 6 weeks. I sure hope its over for a while.

So I'm off to make another Indigo Rose Peek a Boo Pincushion. That is the plan. I want to stitch it tonight and crochet the edging tomorrow and put it together tomorrow night. I'm ambitious. Well at least I'm ambitious at planning things.

Thanks for checking in, sorry for being so lazy this summer. See you tomorrow!
I'm stitching!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! I have the little ornament stitched and I'm putting it together and I will have a picture later today. I PROMISE!!!

See you later.........

AAARRRGGGGHHH!!! I have not stitched in soooooo long. I have stitched a little but finished nothing but a little Xmas exchange stocking. I don't know what is wrong with me but its making me crazy.  Well crazier than I normally am.  I need to get in gear, Christmas is coming FAST.

I've tried crocheting but that isn't working either. I tried knitting, no luck. I tried punchneedle, no go. I hate it when I get in this kind of slump.

I'm going to try hard this week to stitch and finish something..........Hopefully I will have a picture soon.
