It’s Been a While

It’s Been a While

I apologize for my lengthy absence.  I lost my stitchy bug and haven’t been able to find it, for quite some time.  Until now.  I’m starting a new project.  I’ve ordered it from the UK.  Just waiting for it to come in. From the tracking, I can see it was shipped on September 22.  I’m … Continue reading

We Have a Hit

We Have a Hit

My friend adored her gift.  I was able to courier it to her just in time for her birthday.  I’m so happy. I wish I could have delivered it myself.  I would have loved to have seen her reaction.  I was so worried it was going to break in transit.  I bought a special box … Continue reading

April 2015 IHSW

It’s that time again.   To get the full ISHW details, click here. I didn’t make it on time to sign up on the page.  Apparently, spam was being sent to the sign-ups, so the sign-in sheet was closed. That’s okay. Thought I’d post anyway.  Someone can always find me using the IHSW tag. I … Continue reading

The Wait is Over

The Wait is Over

I got my package!  I can’t believe how it made the rounds just to get here.  This small package made a lot of stops before it landed in my hands. Anyway, a couple of months ago, my cousin sent me an email and asked me to stitch a birth sampler for her second child (a … Continue reading

Waiting, Waiting

Waiting, Waiting

I’m giddy with anticipation for the receipt of my package. I’m hoping I receive it this week.  Can’t wait to show you what I ordered.  I did have a hard time finding these patterns, since they were out of production.  Thank goodness for Google search.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these.  This is my ninth edition of the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend.  To get the full ISHW details, click here. This weekend’s weather was, once again, horrendous.  Cold, snowy, and miserable.  I did not leave my house all weekend, which allowed for a lot of … Continue reading

Christmas Gift

Christmas Gift

I met up with my two best friends just before Christmas for our traditional “stitch-n-bitch” session.  I love these evenings so much.  There really is nothing like good friends, good food, good conversation, and lots of laughs.  Although, I thought it was just a regular catch up session, I was surprised with the following Christmas … Continue reading

From Squares to Quilts

From Squares to Quilts

About a year ago, I wrote two blog posts with respect to a couple of stitched squares I was donating to the organizers of a Facebook group called “Xstitch for Those Impacted by the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting”. These squares would later be turned into quilts, wall hangings, and pillows for the families, school, … Continue reading
