As predicted I didnt finish anything this weekend but I did start this on Sunday so it kinda counts in my book. Its from Just Nans Harmony Sampler. I took portions from the Spring section and made this pincushion. 

I added lace to it at first and just didnt like the way it turned out, it didnt lay down the way I wanted it to. So I took the lace off and made an crochet edging for it and then crocheted a chain of the pink and wove it through the bottom of the edging. I really like it now, love the colors too:)                               
No clue what I will stitch tomorrow but I'm going to try and do something, wish me luck!!!!!!!

And here it is, another finish. This is by Cottage Island Needlearts and is called Clover Sheep. Can you believe this, I've stitched several things this week.

So heres my sheep:)

I added a little button I had to her blanket, this let me avoid stitching the sheep that was supposed to go there. I used felt to make the body etc. The kit had wool but it frayed so bad I couldnt use it and felt moves a little etc so it was perfect. I think shes a pretty cute little pincushion:)

I'm going to try and stitch something this weekend too, that never usually happens but we'll see, maybe I will surprise myself, lol

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

And I didnt think I would finish anything today, was I ever wrong.  I finished a Chessie and Me design called Rabbit Run and made it into a pincushion.  Heres the pic.........

I crocheted the edging for it and added cream colored chenille around the edging. I like the way it turned out.

So maybe I will finish something tomorrow too.......maybe not.......see you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping..........

I finished something AGAIN, woo hoo. I'm on a roll, lol.  I made another button leg sheep because I love making them and I only had to stitch a small section.........dont judge me, its something at least, lol.  So heres the picture

So looking at the picture I'm not thrilled with the ear placement, oh well, too late now.  Will file "move the ears down" away in my brain somewhere for next time. Oh, the little stitched section is a portion of a Shepherds Bush design called My Moms Garden. 

 I also made another Just Nan Christmas Mouse. I used an ornament hanger for his tail and a button on his butt. I suppose I should post a picture of that too. So here it is.............

I'm trying really hard to get my stitching mojo back. I kinda feel like I'm getting back into it. Trying to stick to things I can stitch up and finish quickly for now.

Fingers crossed I have something to post tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting and not giving up on me:)

Its going to be hard for you to believe but I stitched and finished something else. I still dont really have my stitchig mojo back but I'm trying.

This Running Rabbits by Just Nan.  I love this design.  I stitched it on a 28 count wedgewood blue lugana with DMC floss.  I crocheted the edging for the pincushion and finished it up before I had a chance to put it somewhere and forget about it, lol. 

So there the little jewel is:) 

And I'm off and stitching something else already. Maybe I'll even finish. LOL

Thanks for visiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hold on to your hats people, I actually finished something. Its been a long dry spell for me and I'm not sure its over but heres something.

Just Nans Minervas Mouse.  I dont think its nearly as cute as the other mouse but I don't really like the fabric I picked.  I think I'm going to try and tea dye some fabric and give it another go.

Still its pretty cute I think:)  I used an ornament hanger for the tail and used a button on its butt, lol. 

So my plan is to start stitching again, have been having such a hard time with it lately, just can't force myself to do anything but start projects, ugh.

Hopefully you will see me here again in the next couple days, that could be a little optomistic though.

Thanks for stopping by............
