New Storage and Stitchy Progress


So I have been looking for someone to make me some bags and grime guards for my WIP’s and I finally found a gal that does an amazing job!  Her name is Deanna and you can find her Facebook page  at Deanna’s Frame Covers and Storage. Here is what I received in the mail from her yesterday:


The coffee bag contains my 36″ scroll frame, with matching grime guards.  It was wonderful to see the Passions Ricamo SAL #3 again.  Can’t wait to get back to it :). The bag in front holds a 24″ scroll frame with matching grime guards.  I just love the colors in this bag and if you look closely, there are little pink owls in some of the squares.  Sweet!  These bags are so wonderfully made.  Lined with a matching fabric and zipper closure.  I am so happy that my projects are out of pillow cases and into some very beautiful, sealed bags.  I also asked her to make me a custom bag to hold all of my scroll frame parts when they are not in use.


It is beautiful and quilted and perfect for storing all of my scroll frame parts :). Yes, I do have some scroll frames not in use, LOL. So if you are looking for some bags for your Q-snaps or scroll frames or grime guards for them and hoop frames, check out her Facebook page.  She is so sweet and she does an awesome job at creating these bags.  And she has a pretty quick turn around, too.  So check her page out and get some beautiful bags for your projects 🙂

Since finishing Aphrodite, I have been working on another mermaid, Passione Ricamo’s SAL #2.  It is good to be working on her again.  Here is where I left her last night:


I love all the metallic threads in this one.  So pretty and sparkly.  I am nearing the bottom of this one and will have to go back up and add her face and hair and then hundreds of beads!

I am also working on trying to use up my scarf yarn stash.  I made a list of all the yarn projects I have and I have 2 pages worth!  The last scarf I made was for a friend and it is the prettiest one I have done yet.  I forgot to take a picture of it before sending it to her, but I did have a little of the yarn left and I made this swatch:


Such pretty colors and so sparkly. These are my favorite colors for winter.

Yesterday I got a new phone, so I will be spending some time today getting to know it :). What are you working on this weekend?

    1. Aren’t they just gorgeous, Christine? They are really awesome and have to plug her business in case anyone else is looking for these wonderful bags and grime guards. I was planning on starting a new pixie this weekend, but I am sticking with the mermaid for now. The colors are gorgeous and I would love to finish her soon.

  1. I continue to love your works of art!! We had our son & his family from FL for company this weekend. No crafting was done.


  2. Those bags are so nice! I especially love the little owl print. You ARE an enabler. I didn’t know there was such a product out there and now I want one. haha.

    Your projects are all looking terrific. You sure do stay busy!


    1. They are really nice bags and covers, Fawn. Deanna did an awesome job. You definitely should have a set, or two or three 😉 I do try to stay busy. Though the last few days I have just been tired and not wanting to do anything. I do hope that I am not losing my stitchy mojo. I am reading more. Trying to get through that big book. I just reached the 3rd book in it. It is getting really, really interesting and I want to know how it ends.


  3. Such cute frame covers! I was going to ask if you really have scroll frames not in use 🙂 but then you answered that unasked question already, lol!


  4. I love those bags. They are just perfect. It is always so good to find good quality bags that fits perfectly.
    Your new mermaid looks gorgeous. I can already picture her, and sparkly and shiny with all her beads.
    Enjoy the upcoming weekend, and happy sewing. 🙂


    1. The bags are totally awesome and I do plan on getting a few more to get rid of a few more pillow cases that I have WIP’s in. I am planning on continuing with the mermaid for a while. You know how it is when you get into a rhythm and just don’t want to stop 😉 But since I am going on a little vacation this weekend, I have decided to wait to start something new. There will be some yarn on my needles for the car ride though. I hope your weekend is filled with crafting happiness 🙂

      1. Lovely. Enjoy your weekend getaway, specially with the weather still being warm and comfy. Enjoy the knitting.
        I think I need to stitch more, I love yours just to much. Thanks for all the inspiration.
        Happy crafting. 🙂


      2. You are so sweet. You are an inspiration to me, with all of your lovely knitting. The weekend trip was really, really hot, but we had a great time. Got to hang out with our oldest son and do a few things and relax. I even knitted a scarf-mostly while trying to calm my nerves on the highway 🙂

      3. Thank you for your kind words, you are just as much an inspiration to me to stitch more.
        Sounds like a gorgeous and glorious weekend. 🙂 Enjoy the summer while it lasts, soon colder days will come around again.
        Love it when one get to visit and hang out with the kids, they are so much fun and keeps us young.
        Enjoy the rest of your week. 🙂


  5. You can definitely see your expertise in the work you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. All the time go after your heart.


  6. What lovely storage bags and very handy indeed.. Hope you had a great august and a lovely summer break.. maybe we’ll get a peep of the mermaid soon. 😉 Missing you. 😉


    1. Aw, thank you Angela! I am missing you, too, but I know that you are on an amazing journey with your new business. It’s nice to hear from you whenever you get the chance. August was great and went by way too fast. I am hoping that September will be a little slower. I have put the “Journey Under the Sea” mermaid away for now, but I did post a picture of Aphrodite back from the framer in an updated post. Check her out, she turned out beautifully. Take care, my friend and have a wonderful September ❤
