Finished Organizing

Here are my boxes all organized, finally. Finished it during nap time. I did have 4 full boxes but added 1 and half with the threads that I wound up yesterday. I found many in a lot of UFO projects. I do have many duplicates, but I used the DMC checklist and found that I am missing 20 thread colors. Not that I need them for anything right now, but I might as well just go purchase them and have the whole set. I don't own many specialty threads. I would love to have them all, but who can really afford that. I will just purchase them, (Sparingly) as needed.
Well, off to supper and bathe the kids. Hopefully they will get to bed early, so I can have some stitching time.
Happy Stitching,

Organizing Continues...

So far I have turned this...

into this.

Next, it is time to place these into boxes. Stay tuned.

Organizing and a Finish

My fifth Little House Needleworks ornament "Snowy Pines" is stitched!!! I really liked this one. I think is was how quick it stitched up for me. I also found one packet of beads that I own that work in these ornaments, the crystal ones. I know I have more beads, I just don't know where I put them....Aghh!!! I made the house a little darker blue to better match the color of my MIL's house, and used the lighter blue for the border.

My next project is to organize all this floss that has just been sitting here in this tote. I need to put them all on floss cards and fill another box with them. I have 4 boxes and will add one more. They are all DMC with just a couple of specialty flosses. I do have many duplicates. If I'd have been organized in the first place, I wouldn't have purchased so many doubles.

Off to twirl some thread....
Happy Stitching,

Freebie Finish and a New LHN Start

First off is my finished Freebie. It is designed by Jennifer of Feathers in the Nest. Love Makes You Real. It is a quote from the Velveteen Rabbit. My little Velveteen seems to like it. It will probably become a little pillow. I did make a couple changes to make it my own. I just love it. She did a great job. She has just started designing a few little samplers. Go check out her blog.

I also started the 4th in the series of Little House Needleworks Ornament of the Month. Snowy Pines. This one is going along very fast. I am using a darker blue for the house and am using up more of my Spinach from Crescent Colors for the green. I hope to be done with this by the end of the weekend. We'll see if I can make that deadline.

Happy Stitching,

My Package Has Arrived~Thank You Cindy

As I heard the dog run for the side window, full tilt, barking like mad....I knew it must be the mailman with a package. The mailman never comes to the side porch unless... A package for ME!!!!! I won Cindy's 100th blogger post a while back. I was so surprised at the size an weight of the thing. Cindy, you went a little overboard, I don't think I am worthy of all these wonderful stitchy items. In my large box, there were a dozen magazines, a beautiful butterflies kit, a Just Nan Christmas chart and charm, a Shepherd's Bush HOME Chart, An ornament tuck pillow (not shown), a booklet of smalls for cards or ornies (not shown), 4 sets of 4 fat quarters of quilting fabrics, to finish my stitching's, and 2 boxes of bits and bobs for more finishing ideas. I just love everything. I spent the hour or so of the kids nap and poured through the magazines.
Cindy, you are so generous. Thanks so much. The only thing missing was a return address.
I also spent most of the day yesterday and today and finished a freebie from Jennifer at Feathers in the Nest. I will post a pic and a link of that later.
Hope you're all having a great day.
Happy Stitching,

Giveaway From Vickie

Just spent a nice week away with my family in PEI, Canada. When I got home, my prize from Vickie was in the mail. I won a giveaway at Reading and Stitching. Yeah!!!! She had packaged up some really cute charts and 27 DMC flosses. It just so happens that I don't have any of those colors!!!! There are a few cute Harvest/Halloween designs in there, and that is my favorite season to stitch. Thanks so much, Vickie. You are so generous.

I've been working very slowly on Margaret Harris and picked up a UFO and stitched a little on that. I also just started another ornament from LHN. I will post a pick after I make a little more progress.

Happy Stitching,
