Some Questions

Ok so Im a cross stitcher who hardly ever gets around to 'finishing' as in framing,sewing ect. any of her projects. Bad I know lol. For myself I rather framing at the moment as the thought of sticky fingers on a much laboured over pillow or something is something I dont like to consider. Maybe when they're a little older :) But I look at all the nice finishes people around Blogg land come up with and I wonder, how do you know what faric to use and does it mean a seperate trip to LNS with every finished project?

I went to my LNS today and was quite disappointed as they had no 32cnt Linen, which I needed, only larger/smaller counts. Also another burning question is how much linen/Aida do you leave around a border? I always cut mine too close and now I have a few projects that I think 'how am I going to frame this?' lol.

Happy Stitching this weekend and I will leave you now with the hint that I may have a finish to share this week, just maybe :-D

Spring Progress

I decided to wait for a week to post this time as I wanted to be able to show some decent progress :)I have been reading blogs and commenting here and there, just not posting.

So what else have I been up to? Well I'll let the pictures tell the tale...
Orange kitty now has 2 ears :-D
And the 1st little kitty is appearing in '4 Seasons Kitties'

And now Im getting ready for my sister to visit for a few days which will mean a lot of shopping (hopefully framing) and a lot of talking :)

Happy Stitching Everyone as we approach the end of another month :)

Happy Stitching into this wonderful weekend :D

Stars for A Grieving Family

I came across a post on allie-oops sweet happy life who is calling out for help for a friend, The Scrappy Apple Yard. Her daughter has lost her soldier fiance, and they were meant to be married this week. She is asking for anyone to help make Star quilt blocks to put together for the ones affected by this tragedy. While I probably cant help personally I felt I can help by spreading the word. My prayers and love go out to these familys.

Goal Progress/Kittens Everywhere

Looking at my goals for September, 1 of which was 10 hours on my second kitty project, I am halfway to seeing this 1 through, having completed 5 1/2 hours :)

This is what it looked like today when I picked it up

And I just set it down looking like.....
Starting to see a kitty peeking at me :P

Happy Stitching to all my followers and a big welcome to all the new followers who've decided to take a peek into my stitching life :)

Ive really enjoyed stitching along with everyone  this weekend although I didnt get as much done as I would have liked. And I did work on the same project.

So as much as Im enjoying it I think I might turn my attention to 1 of my other projects so that you dont all just fall to sleep reading my posts :)

Happy Stiching in this new week :-D

Happy Stitching Everyone :)

Well Ive been a little quiet for a while but not because I wanted to. This......
....decided to hide for a few days making uploading progress a little difficult.

So what have I got done in that time? Stitching of course. Although not as much as I would have liked. I worked solely on '4 Seasons Kittys', which now looks like this...

Im hoping for much more progress in the second half of the month. Although Im also concentrating on gaining my drivers licence and enrolling my eldest daughter in school to start Prep in January. Also this month my dear Grandma (Nanna) is turning 70 and as I was the first Grandchild for her and I was born on her Birthday, its even more dear to my heart :) So we are travelling to celebrate with her.

Happy Stitching :-D

A beautiful month. Spring is emerging and my Birthday approaches. I guess I wont be looking forward to that particular day with as much enthusiasm as the years roll by lol.

On my journeys around the Blogosphere I have noticed many putting up their list of things they hope to get done in the new month. I think this is a great idea, so I thought I would put my own list forward.

September Stitchy List
  • I really want to finish Tis the Season - I will put up a progress pic on this 1 tomorrow
  • Id love to finish the Spring section of my '4 Seasons Kitties'
  • I'd love to do at least 10 hours on my other kitty stitch

I think thats a list that I can achieve. Lets see how I go :) I hope you are all having a lot of fun with your crafts as I am this month, whether it be brightening into Spring or mellowing into Fall.

Happy Stitching :-D
