I havent been stitching but I havent been doing nothing either. I crocheted a baby blanket for my daughter who is pregnant.  I used a baby ripple design and lots of colors.

The blanket is crib size. I like the way it turned out. Very colorful. 

I'm looking for a pattern for this baby sweater or one very similar. I dont have a name of the pattern, just a picture I found on the internet.

Someone on the 123 board found the person on etsy who made them and sold them but when I contacted her I discoverd she is from Turkey and the language barrier prevents me from finding out if I can find this pattern any where. If any of  you have any idea where I could find the pattern to purchase I would LOOOOOVE the information.  So thank you in advance :)))))))

Two finishes today. The first is Hide and Seek by Shepherds Bush. I added the little sheep button to the design.  I used white lugana and DMC cotton floss. The little sheep is a JABC button.

The second finish is another one by Shepherds Bush, its All Seasons scissor fob. I decided to make it into an ornament though. I stitched it on a blue lugana with HDF silk floss. I added the little red         stocking cap to the winter sheep. I stitched it in one over. I think it turned out pretty cute.  I thought it would be a really quick stitch becuase its not huge but it turned out theres lots of stitching in that little area, lol.                                                                                                                                                    

See you tomorrow, thanks for stopping in.

I am really on a roll folks, lol. Here is another finish. This one is a portion of Just Nans design called Hoppington Hill. I took one of the cube sides and made it into an Easter Ornament.  I stitched it on a 28 count blue lugana and actually used most of the DMC colors I was supposed to. Then just added cording.

I think this design is so stinking cute but then there are bunnies and as you well know, I'm a bunny and sheepaholic :)

Well I'm off to start something else, not sure what but something. MY STITCHING MOJO IS BACK, WOO HOO!!

Thanks for coming by, see you tomorrow, hopefully.

And its a..........................pincushion, sigh. I told you I was on a pincushion kick right now. Have to say I really like this one, love the colors of course but really like the edging I crocheted for it. Also like the single crochet chain I crocheted to weave through it.  Its pretty big about 7 3/4 inches square.

Its Pretty in Pink by Brightneedle. I did it on 28 count white lugana, more HDF silk floss.

Not sure whats next to make, I have an ornament for an exchange I need to finish..........Love joining exchanges but I'm not so fantastic about getting them done before the last minute. I need to work on that, lol.

Thanks for coming by and seeing my stitching. Hope I'm back with something tomorrow:)
Here is Brightneedles Pretty in Pink, I guess I should have straightened the fabric because it looks crooked, maybe its the way I took the picture, lol.

I stitched it on 28 count white lugana and used HDF silk floss in my choice of colors, like always :)

Now the problem, what to make it into.  Pinkeep, sewing book, pincushion, I'm leaning toward pincushion ( I'm on a pincushion kick) but its 5 1/2 inches square and thats a lot of edging to crochet.  Any ideas out there what I can make it into..........hmmm, decisions decisions!

Just had a thought, maybe I will go to the Worlds Largest Collection of Smalls and look at finishes, yeah, maybe I will.

Geez, now that I look at it here on the blog it sure would make a cute pincushion...........

Thanks for stopping by, see you maybe tomorrow :)

I finally decided and the needlebook/scissor case idea won out. This is the Primitivebetty design called Prim Sisters Needlebook.  I put a pocket on the inside for scissors etc and on the opposite side are two pages of felt for needles and pins.  I made a cording to go around it and tie it closed and it was done. WOO HOO another finish for me:)

So I'm stitching Pretty in Pink by Brightneedle right now and should finish it today. Hoping to make it into a pincushion or something tomorrow. Will probably have to crochet another edging to go around it, lace just is not cutting it for me right now for some reason, lol. 

Well I'm trying hard to keep that stitching mojo going, so far so good. Thanks to everyone who comes by and leaves a note. See you tomorrow, I hope:)

I finished stitching this yesterday. Its by Primitive Betty and is called Prim Sisters Needlebook. I'm not sure what I'm going to finish it into, I'm kinda on a pincushion kick right now.

I changed the colors on it of course because I always do that.  I also didnt add the outer stitching. I liked this better without it.  I'm leaning towards making it into a sewing book.....hmmm......

I'm stitching on something else already, hope to have it done tomorrow...

Thanks for coming by:)
