No Stitching Update But Some Constructions

Hello Everyone: I hope your day is going well, mine is, I was able to get Picasa to upload my photos finally.
I Spent most of Sunday afternoon in my sewing room, I wanted to get some of my stitched items constructed, I am thrilled with  what I was able to get done, while watching Matt Damon in the Bourne series I got to work.

First is a thread keeper pin cushion, I stained the wood a very light color, I was not sure I would like it until I inserted the stitched design into the wood square.
Now the best part is that this was an exchange from June over at we were involved in an exchange, this is what she sent me,

So all this time I did not know what to do with it, this is perfect for this beautiful design.

I copied this idea from a Blackbird Design Exchange I did with Joanie, not sure if she still has a Blog or not.

I am keeping my threads and beads on this for the design I am working on now the Little Church.

Next I finished a pillow from Scattered Seed Samplershttp://scatteredseedsamplers.blogspot.comI love Tammy's designs.

I also constructed another Scattered Seed Samplers design I stitched, this is one I made a big mistake on and had to wing it in the construction, I used my own fabric, not because I did not like what Tammy chose but because of my own mistake.

It is hanging kind of wonky and wrinkled so sorry, I really like this design and how it is being used.

I have had this box for so long and did not know what I wanted to do with it, now it is a pin cushion and ort box, I took the glass out so the bird design would really pop up. This is a With Thy Needle and Thread design.

I plan on making other designs that I was gifted in an exchange, the other one I want to get constructed is the Pansy's from Gracie over at
I am going to get lots of construction done only because I am tired of all the beautiful designs just laying in my to do drawer which is full.
I am going o a stitching retreat with the Minnesota Needlework Guild this coming Thursday, I am really looking forward to it.
I hope it does not snow rain or any other bad weather, I am so ready for spring, even my friends who hate the heat are begging for this winter to be over.
Time to get a dr9ink of water and head down to my sewing room.

A New Start And A Finished Stitch

Greetings to all: I am so sorry if I have not emailed you thank-you's for your comments on my last post, I am telling you the truth I have been busy with some stitching and beading and sewing,
plus I started my spring cleaning ewww.
First some news on the weather front, we have not had much snow but now Mother Nature feels its time, we have 5 new inch's on the ground from the last day and a half, with 3-6 inch's coming this weekend.
I am suffering, really suffering, I gave up chocolate baked bakery goods, Granola bars and my favorite Pepsi, it has not been easy, some of my friends who do not go to Church ask why I give them a lesson on how I need to do this.
Anyhoo, I did have a finished stitch.

I Started a new design, I bought this about seven years ago, while cleaning up and getting rid of crap in my sewing room I found this, I am loving this design, it is a Nora Corbett Design, it is working up faster then I expected, just five hours with breaks in between stitching and this is my progress.
It is called: Little Snowy Church, not sure where I will be hanging this, maybe in my sewing room and bringing it out in the winter.

This is from Scattered Seed Samplers, it is the "Midsummer's Day" Tailors Roll & Needlekeep Necklace, I love this and hope to get it constructed this weekend.

I did make another bracelet, just messed around with a few beads, it is a lot prettier in person.
It is so light weight it almost feels like there is nothing on my wrist.

My Sister in Law is coming over for lunch and beading on Tuesday, I love getting together with her, she is a boat load of fun.

I am going to a Minnesota Needlework Guild event next weekend, it is the Race To The Finish event, it is supposed to be a time to get all your UFO's finished, but I really do not have any, I always finish a design before starting another, I think I will take lots of silk  pins and pin together some of the designs I have waiting to be constructed, then when I get home maybe I will have the incentive to
construct them when I get home on Sunday.
I hope you all are having great weather, we are for now but the clouds are moving in slowly.
Please I beg you to Pray for all who are ill, please ask God to heal them.

Holy Smolly

Oh my goodness Lizzie Kate designers are retiring.


Hello my Dear friends

Thank-you all for your wonderful comments on my last post, I found  an Ebayer that had sold the pattern for the Robin hood pattern, however I did ask her to get back to me about who the designer is, this person has not responded as of yet, however I did respond to the person on Facebook and she took the post off Facebook, what is that all about, I was just trying to help, maybe she was just playing with people on Facebook to see what kind of response  she could get.
I would still like to know who is the designer.
I have been busy with stitching and beading I made a bracelet in blues which I just love, I may wear it out soon. See my little feet?
Then I decided to make some simple ornaments for the Santa Shop for next December at Church, they are just simple ones but rather pretty in person.

They are much prettier in person, I plan on making more but different and in different colors.

I have made lots of progress on my Scattered Seed Pillow, I am loving this design, I hope to have it finished tomorrow evening and then I plan to construct it on Thursday.
I found this great pattern at a quilt shop, I am doing my own colors for this, it is suppose to be inserted into a tin, I plan on making 10 to give to the Santa shop at Church, I just need to dig out my super small buttons for the flower tips.
Well I do have more to show you but do not want to drag on so will post again on Thursday.
I hope you all are having great weather, this winter has been awful in some parts of the country, I feel so bad for the east coast and southern states with all the crappy weather they are getting, the up side is snow will be a memory soon.
Thank-you for visiting and leaving comments.
