Just a little update

              These are a few of the boxes I bought from Hobby Lobby, they are of great quality, I will be using one of them for my Blackbird Designs Exchange, I am not sure what I will stitch just yet I will start this week-end, the cylinders are another vproject I plan on working on in the next couiple of weeks, the bigger box is for the Blackbird Designs  Casting A Spell I just need to order the pattern.
I am not sure what I will do with the frames, I donot have a hobby Lobby near si have to order from the web, it is worth it they are better quality then the ones I have bought in the past from other  craft stores.

I bought most of these patterns last fall and early winter a couple are gifts.
I am going to start stitching the Valentine Message this week-end, I love Blackbird Designs, I do like all other Designers but Blackbird Is my favorite.

I bought the threads from http://victorianmottosamplershoppe.blogspot.com Nancy gives you more then your money's worth and the threads are beautiful, I bought the spring colors to work on a Easter project.
Nancy has lots of things to offer, patterns she has designed, trims, chenille trim and other items please check her out.
Next up is a picture of our new baby she is so sweet and so soft, she sits at the kitchen door watching the birds she sure wishes she could get outside.
Stay warm and happy stitching.

Only two pictures

Since I am having so much trouble uploading pictures these are the only ones I was able to get on this page, Blogger does not like me again this week. These are some of the threads I  bought from http://victorianmottosamplershoppe.blogspot.com now I cannot for the life of figure out why the words have jumped down so far from above.
I did not buy the threads lately, I bought them before the first of the year, I am getting ready for my Easter Egg patterns.
Nancy gives you way more thread then the national brands and the colors are beautiful, try her out visit her blogspot.
This picture is of the Nativity set we put out every Christmas, we are the only ones in the neighborhood who puts out anything Christian, we see lots of Santas and Grinches, we get lots and lots of people driving by and stipping to look day and night, some families have had their picture taken next to the building at night it is a sight to see at night.
We took this down on saturday, the building is about three feet wide and almost three feet tall.
It is very heavy.
I am having trouble agin so will sign offfor now.
Blessings to all.

This is just a question: Is anyone else having trouble with the followers tag on the side of your page not showing your followers? I want to see who is following me and cannot find the place where the followers should be.
Please respond if you are having trouble or if you know how to fix this.
I will post tomorrow new pictures  of stitching and other things I have been into.
Have a nice warm evening.

Just a little stitching

Happy Newyear to all: I hope you are all ready for more stitching in 2013.
I am again joining the Up For A Challenge 15 again this year, lets hope I get all my ufo's finished this year.
I have been doing some stitching and other things, even with my work load, now I am not complaining about work I am so glad to have my job, I have been there 18 years staring my 19th on january 24.
The first picture is of the ornaments I found in a box from many years ago (not something I would normally do) now they are hanging on one of my small trees. I really like the owl they are all cuter in person rather then in pictures.
Next is a felt Christmas Banner that was in a box of patterns and fabric from a Friend (who is in Arizona where it is warm) she had started it way back in 1980, it was half way done I am one who likes to finish other peoples projects rather then toss them.
This is a Bucilla Felt kit, I did not really want to do it, so I forged ahead and really like the results, I plan on turning it into a banner with beads on the bottom, hopefully it will be ready to hang next Christmas.

This is a Biscornou I started and finished this week-end, I love it I changed out the colors a little I used all left over silk threads from past Shepherds Bush projects, this is a free pattern from www.remakeremixreuse.blogspot.com Conny has two blogs one is a stitching blog the other is her miniature blog site.
I used a flower button from my stash for the middle.
This is a Blackbird Designs pattern which I love,  I have ordered a few boxes from Hobby Lobby (one of my fav store for crafts) I am not sure how I will finish it,  as soon as the boxes arrive I will decide, I stitched this on an unknown fabric I do know it is 28 count, a beautiful light green with a dye.
 I am going to start my Valentine stitching tonight, I have a few ufos in that pile for Valentines day now is the time to start stitching for my Honey and Mom.
Blessings to you all in 2013, be safe and happy.
