Ballerina Birth Announcement (Update)

Ballerina Birth Announcement (Update)

I’ve been away from my blog for a bit, because work has been super busy.  Normally, I would take a few minutes out of my day to provide an update, but I just haven’t had a chance. While I’ve been away, I’ve managed to keep up with my stitching during the evenings and weekends.  I’ve … Continue reading

Ballerina Birth Announcement 3

I received the Glissen Gloss that I was waiting for and whipped up the tutus in no time.  As if the ballerinas weren’t already adorable, the adorable factor has been amped up big time! The Glissen Gloss was a bit tricky to work with.  To be honest, I followed the chart at the beginning and … Continue reading

Ballerina Birth Announcement 2

I managed to finish the second of the two ballerinas of my birth announcement, and this is my contribution to August 2015’s IHSW. She was a very quick stitch.  I had her finished in no time. I’m still waiting for my Glissen Gloss special order to come in.  I also need to add the birth … Continue reading

Ballerina Birth Announcement

Oh my!  It’s been at least three months since my last post, and I haven’t stitched one iota.  Actually, I started stitching about four days ago, and I’m slowly getting back into it.  I was so distracted with my gym training, that I just didn’t have the time to spare for stitching.  Plus, the weather … Continue reading

Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

My daughter finished her Gorjuss project (to be featured in an upcoming post). She checked out the other patterns available and requested one of them, so I’ll be ordering that for her.  In the meantime, she decided to kill some time and start another snowman alphabet. This time around, she compelted the letter R.  As … Continue reading

Ruby, Progress No. 1

I started a new project.  I haven’t drifted from my Mystery Gift, but I did have an hour to kill and it was easier to bring along this neat, little project versus my larger project. Two weekends ago, I had to cancel my daughter’s guitar lesson due to bad weather driving conditions.  This past weekend, … Continue reading

Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

With all the snow that’s been falling the last couple of days, it seems fitting that I post about wintery snowmen.  🙂 I volunteered to do some quick stitches for my friend.  The theme is Snowmen ABC (designed by Ursula Michael).  As you can probably guess, it’s the alphabet with each letter displayed on a … Continue reading

Dark Wings Progress No. 1

Dark Wings Progress No. 1

Fuh, fuh, fuh, FINALLY!  I have finally started this project.  Sadly, I’ve had too many starts on it.  I’m surprised I haven’t given up on it yet.  You can read about that here and here.  In my last post regarding Dark Wings, I boasted about how I found the best fabric for her.  So proud … Continue reading

Hello Little One

Hello Little One

Hello Little One by Janlynn My Early Works (3) I stitched this up for my co-worker’s daughter in 1999.    Sadly, I never gave it to him and one look at the picture will explain why. I just don’t know how I got the corners marked up or what that even is. It’s a mystery … Continue reading
