BLOGAVERSARY GIVE-AWAY!


cake-5yr

Yesterday was my 5 year anniversary of this little ole’ blog of mine!  Wow, how time does fly!  I can’t believe it has been 5 years.  And I have had so much fun and have met so many wonderful people and have been introduced to so many awesome blogs.  So thank you for visiting me over the years and if you are new to my blog, welcome.  I hope to spend many more with you.

So to celebrate, I have a couple of give-aways!  Yay!!!  The first is a cross stitch give-away.  Cross stitch is my passion. And my favorite thing to stitch is mermaids 🙂  So, I have a mermaid pattern from Nora Corbett.  And you can’t have a pattern without a hand dyed piece of fabric.  And I have a beautiful piece from my favorite dyer from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics.  It is a piece of 28ct Monaco and is plenty big for just about anything, sized at 20 x 25.

The second giveaway is a knitting project.  A scrumptious ball of sock yarn called Poems Sock yarn by Wisdom Yarns and a pattern for a Trellis Garter Lace Scarf.

All you have to do to be entered for the giveaway is leave me a comment telling me what is your most favorite or treasured craft project that you have made, and which giveaway you would choose; either the cross stitch or knitting.  I’m not sure I can pick a favorite, but if I had to choose one, it would be definitely be a mermaid 😉  I am just not sure which one at the moment.  I will draw 2 names on March 31, 2017.

I do have some updates on my current WIP pieces, but I will post about them tomorrow 🙂  Until then, happy creating and Enjoy Every Stitch ❤

Happy Blogaversary Give-away


Today is my 3 year anniversary since starting my stitchy blog.  It has been a fun ride and I have met so many wonderful people.  I started this blog as a way to keep track of my projects and share my passion for stitching.  So, to celebrate my anniversary, I have a nice little giveaway that you can win. Simply leave me a comment on this post telling me which of my blog posts is your favorite or which one of my projects is your favorite. I will draw one name to win the following prize:

WIN_20150325_150237

The prize package includes a piece of 32ct Lugana Solo from Silkweaver measuring 16 x 25 ( a definite mistake in ordering as I don’t stitch on 32ct, but the fabric is beautiful!), The February 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine (I renewed my subscription and received this one after I had purchased it) My favorite model stitcher stitched the cover 😉 A package of DMC Color Variations-the Blue Lagoon Collection.  I liked the colors so much I purchased it twice; a couple of Weeks Dye Works threads and 3 packages of Mill Hill beads.

So leave me a comment on this post by March 31, 2015 and I will draw a name from all entries on April 1 and it won’t be a joke 🙂

Some Stitching, a Framing and Some Goodies


It’s been a while since I posted.  So I have lots to share.  First, some stitching.

I finally finished the chickadee and cherry blossoms on the right side of my Geisha Round Robin just in time for mailing last week.  The title will have to wait until it returns home next year.  Here is how the whole thing looked before mailing it off to Johanna:

Geisha RR ready for mailing

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, except that the fabric is 28ct Jobelan.  Too stretchy for me. Since I like my fabric taught when I stitch and I tend to stitch a little too tight,  the piece seems to be a little out of shape now.  Maybe it will go back into place after everyone does their stitching on it.  I’ll deal with that once it comes back home.  It’s going to be so bright and colorful when it’s finished.  I know that the 7 gals that will be stitching on it will do a great job.  And I am looking forward to stitching on theirs.

While we are on the subject of Round Robins, this is the Round Robin I did last year.  I finally put it in to be framed a few weeks ago and picked it up today.  I tried a new framer, and not sure if I am 100% happy with it yet or not.  There seems to be some puckering at the bottom, but I will leave it for a few days to see if the hot, humid weather has anything to do with it.

Sorry about the poor photo.  Seems I may have to enlist a friend with her awesome photo taking abilities to come and take blog photos for me.  My camera is just not doing the trick these days.  Anyway, I love all the fairies that were stitched for me on this piece.  So beautiful and sparkly in person.

Now for some goodies.  A few months back I won this from  Pretty Little Things in a Box  blog giveaway.

Copy of 100_5131She made some really cute vintage rings and I won this adorable one.  She folded the back down so it almost lays flat.  I may use it that way.  Not sure yet.  If you want to make your own, you can visit her blog for directions on how she creates them.

Next up is a piece of fabric I won over at My Stitchy Ramblings blog.

Goodies from KarenOMG!  I totally fell in love with this piece of fabric!  It has nice light colors, it’s 16 ct Aida and it’s SPARKLY!!  So, so beautiful.  I love it, Karen.  And she was so sweet and made me some awesome scroll covers for my scroll frames.  Isn’t she just the sweetest?  I will post a pic soon with the monkey ones on my scroll frame.

So, I think I am caught up now…I am currently stitching on Karen’s Round Robin, but don’t want to post until I am finished.  I have some things on order, some things kitted up to start and just last week I signed up for Passione Ricamao’s Mystery SAL.  This will be a first for me-SAL and Mystery SAL.  The enablers out there  seem to think it’s a mermaid (thanks Julie 🙂 ) And you all know that I can’t resist a mermaid.  Hopefully I won’t be away for quite so long next time.  I have missed you 🙂
