Forgot to add pictures

Today I was able to figure out how to use my new camara that I have had for three months.
I am not the brightest bulb in the pack but I was able to find a way to download pictures, I do want to say I am sorry if they are not the best of quality.
Her goes.
I finished the Sweetheart Tree Potpourri Heart last winter and finally did the finishing into a basket top, I lined the inside with a Moda Blackbird fabric.
This is going to be a gift for someone special.
The Altoids tin is topped with a Shepherds Bush Liberty pattern.
I lined the inside bottom with a piece of vintage fabric and added a magnet to the top inside for the renegade needles that come loose from the fabric.
Tomorrow I will put together the Haiti pattern that I finished. This is the pattern from By The Bay Needleart that Donna Bayliss is selling on her web site.
It is starting to rain with warnings from the national weather service, it is really thundering now.
Gotta go.
God Bless America.

My New Stash

These are my new goodies, this morning I made a trip up to Crosby/Ironton and then down to Abbott Northwestern Hospital, after I dropped off my patient I was done for the day.

I have had two gift certificate that my super sweet husband gave me for christmas, they were burning a hole in my purse, I just needed to spend them.

The engagement calandar is so beautiful I just had to have it, the pictures are oh so lovely.

The scissors are adorable, I had seen a pair on Mama Joans blog and just had to have them, they were only 5.50, Deb at Stitchville had three on display: Pink, Blue and Green.

I picked strawberries last night and as big as I am the bugs almost carried me away, so when I spotted the Strawberry Hill by By The Bay Needleart I wanted it so bad it hurt.

The three buttons were a great find in the .50 each cup, arn't they cute!

The Honeysuckle Manor was a much wanted book, its is filled with lots of lovely projects.

The My Heart Is True was a book I have wanted since it came out in 2009, this book has lots of pretty things to stitch.

The fabric is for an exchange I am doing with the Blackbird Designs

narrated by Patti, she has taken over for Joanie, Joanie did a super great job coordinating the last four exchanges, thank-you Joanie.

Well I should go stitch now since I have a deadline for the exchange.

Peace to you all

God Bless America

God Bless Our Troops who keep us safe.

Today I am starting my By The Bay Needleart Send Hope To Haiti, a Donna Bayliss pattern.
I am doing mine on a royal blue 16 count fabric. Donna Is donating a large portion of the sale of this pattern to help the long term needs to the Hatian people, God Bless you Donna, thank-you in honor of the people of Haiti.
I was in my sewing room almost all day finishing a few other projects, it has been raining most of the day, I hope it stops soon, for a June day it is very cool 64 degrees.
God Bless America.

A late picture

As you can see I have posted the picture of the Shepherds Bush Needleroll.

Way back in january I was working on this, I had decided to make a block to sit on my sofa table, as you can see I finished it into a needleroll.

I have a basket of needlerolls really I have two one is very large and the other basket is med sized.

The pattern showed a gold fabric, I decided on a purple because I do not have a color in either basket that really pops out, this color is doing the job.

Now I can finish my wip and on to a By The Bay Needleart pattern.

God Bless America

God Bless our Troops.

This is the most beautiful exchange ever, I opened this on my front porch with my husband sitting next to me, I had tears in my eyes, thank-you Joanie, it is simply lovely.

Thank-you again.


All Dolled Up Snowy Pines

I did manage to upload some pictures, yaaa.

This is my almost finished Little House Needleworks Snowy Pines, I really like the fabric that was sent with the pattern and beads.

I ordered from Laurel's Stitchery, automatic shipping.

This series is so much fun.

I will start my By The Bay Needleart project next.

Happy stitching.

God Bless America.

So today I tried to upload pictures to my blog, well I am unhappy my copy machine is broke.
I went out and bought a new camara, now I am not really complaining its just that I wanted to get so much done today, I have to learn how to work this thing.
O.K. the guy at the electronics store said it would be easy, oh my its not I am not the brightest bulb in the package so please excuse me if they do not come out very well.
I plan on posting on sat.or sun.
I hope you all are enjoying this start of the week-end.
Please pray for all of the people and animals effected by the oil spill.
Peace to you all
