In Stitches

Space Time Continuum

I have been sucked into a place where time has ceased to exist it's And when I came shooting out the other side the calendar said it's the end of JUNE. Now I distinctly remember it being April just a couple of days ago...right? (big sigh) Okay gotta work on this whole keeping up with what day it is....

The sad thing is that I'm still not getting alot done. At least at home. I've done quite a lot of things at work. ;) Hey! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :D

So here's what I've been doing (at home)...mainly, just becoming one with the couch. This is not an unpleasant experience I assure you.

I have also worked a bit on stitching, just a bit, it's just such an effort to lift my fingers. LOL

Here is my finished sunflower pillow:

And here is my progress on "mom":

Actually I have quite a bit more done on "mom" than this but I have been too lazy to take a recent picture. It's definately L-A-Z-Y month. I just can't believe we are half way through the year (again). We need to pass a law that the warm months are not allowed to speed away this quickly!

Not much else going on so off I go to try and get busy. :D Have a great weekend!

Circle Back Around

Do you ever get that feeling in life where you are just going around in circles and WOW, doesn't this all look familiar? That's where I am today. Things seem like a weird form of deja vu and if you are a Matrix fan you know what that means. ;) Yes, programs are being reset everywhere...

Anyhow in an attempt to shake off the weirdness I have some update pics for you!

I FINALLY finished my last project. I love La D Da patterns but sometimes they can be more complicated than they look. This was one of them. I need to keep this in mind when choosing to work on these...NOTE TO SELF not as easy as it looks. ;)

I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so. ;) I made some small changes adding backstitching to some parts cuz they needed it in my opinion. :D But overall it's a fun and funky project. The yellow fabric looks great with it. Now to find some great fabric to finish it off.

Oh and here is my Angel project all framed:

Greg found this frame on sale. I described what I wanted and dang if he didn't find it. He's great that way. :D I gave it to my sister-in-law (she's a nurse) and she seemed to love it. She's a stitcher too, but never has time for it. So I was glad I could do something nice for her, she's a great lady. :)

NEXT! Greg bought me this project some time ago, I had lusted after it and it went on sale so he got it for me.

I don't normally stitch these type of kits, but this one really screamed at me to do it. I LOVED the colors, the theme and the fabrics. And like I NEED one more pillow? NO...but it's just so fantastic. It was fun to stitch, though I couldn't use a hoop which was weird. But it was easy and it turned out great! This is an "in progress" pic, I actually finished it last night. I'll post a completed pic later. :D

I will make my own pillow for this to wrap around, I have some nice creamy cotton fabric that will give it just the right look. I would recommed these kits if you are looking for something easy and decorative or for a gift. They are super fast and beautifully made, the threads are high quality and the kit includes the needle and a button to finish it off. They come in all types of styles which made it hard to choose one. Oh and it all comes in an nice zipper bag so at the end you have another storage bag, which we can always use. :D They are a bit pricey, but considering you don't have to do anything but stitch it makes it worth it. :D

Next I'm working on this:

I changed all the colors, which should be interesting. LOL I will show pics as soon as I get some more done.

So now I need to go off and read some blogs. And work, work is good too. LOL Have a great week!
