This is what one of my windows looked like before I got to stitching this week.

I have had frilly on my windows for a long time, I wanted something with a little color, sooo I used my Joann Fabrics 40% off coupon, my bill would have been over $40.00 with the coupon it came to just a little over $25.00.

I already had lining leftover from another project, 2 hours later I had my valances.

I had taken today off because we had a death in the family on friday, our fridge died and the new on came today so I decided to sew while waiting for Becker Furniture World to come.

I am very happy with the turn-out of the look on the windows.

Well off to stitching.


This is my exchange from Claudia E. Katrash from Fort Worth Texas.
This is so lovely the colors are beautiful and very vibrant, the finishing was done by Vonna Pfeiffer of The Twisted Stitcher.com wonderful finish.
Thank-you for the beautiful pinkeep Claudia I love it, this week-end I am getting together with a bunch of stitchers for a week-end at Bay Lake Lodge in Minnesota, I will of course be showing this lovely item off.
I hope this post finds everyone well.
Thank-you again.

I am hoping I can interest you in buying this pattern from By The Bay Needlearts
Donna is offering the money she makes to help in the continueing recovery in Haiti.
I did buy this pattern and have stitched it, I am putting it together tomorrow and will post a picture soon.
Happy Stitching

I wanted to show you the the piece I had framed, I really like the feame it is from an old picture from the second hand store, it has kind of a spooky gold orange color, I was going to add a mat but as you can see no room.

This is a Birds Of A Feather pattern, I used Weeks Dye Works threads, the fabric is the Sparrow 32 count.

I started this in June of 2009 fimished the stitching in December and now just had it framed, am I slow or what.

We had 2 1/2 inches of rain yesterday with more coming tomorrow, I donot need to water my veggie garden or flowers for a couple of days this will give me more time to stitch oh my gosh I am in a tizzy I need to go, have a great stitching day.

Linda Hinckley Of Lavander Wings

I just read that Linda Hinckley of Lavander Wings is retiring, how sad for those of us who love her designs.
We will miss your creative genius, thank-you Linda for all of the beautiful designs you have put out for us to stitch.
