Super Duper Biggest Happy Dance EVER!!!

Super proud of myself and dancing the happiest happy dance EVER!!!!

Back in 2009, my online hardanger teacher had us do the pansy sampler from Thea and VS. Excited I was as I was doing so great...

I made a HUGE boo boo and cut the wrong threads.
I had gotten so depressed and upset that I could not even think a fix would be possible. My teacher passed away and it just sat there looking back at me waiting for me to get the courage and figure out a fix for it......

I am happy to announce MY LONG AWAITED FINISH!

Christmas came a little early...

Christmas came a little early for me.... My hubby made a frame for the pen and ink drawing that I had gotten after my dad passed in '04. It has been waiting for it's special spot for too long. I think it looks great in it's new frame and hanging on my craft room wall. Thank you so much baby for giving me an extra special Christmas gift this year. I had tears gather when I first saw it and immediately thought of my dad.

Bloghop Stitchmas Wish for Santa

The holidays are right around the corner and gift exchanges are happening everywhere you look. If an amazingly magical Stitchmas Santa were to fly overhead and bring you one stitching wish, what would it be?

I would love to receive from Stitchmas Santa Mirabilia's Sabrina, Elizabeth and Stargazer completely kitted up. It is a big wish that may never happen but it is what I would love to get.

A disappointing update

For those that have been following me when it comes to my stitching of Jesus Wept....
I had to frog a big spot and thought that I had overcame a big problem.... only to find that when I made the pattern I had not realized that a couple of the symbols were too similar to tell the difference. Also two of the symbols were missing. Then found that my saved copy on the computer was gone.

Satan really does not want this piece to be stitched or to inspire others and be stitched by others.

I therefore, got back on the drawing board and remade the pattern and made sure every symbol was accounted for and also that all the symbols were easy to distinguish from each other.

So after doing that I got back into stitching it and decided to this time do it on 32 count Belfast linen.

Here is my progress so far.... I have almost put in 750 stitches in the past 24 hours....
I am determined to get this done and draw hope and faith more and more through this inspirational piece.

I hope you all will stand behind me and cheer me on as it progresses.

My newest stitching finish

Well I picked something small to get my stitching motivation back.

I made this frog towel and he has 3 more buddies that I intend to make.
I think he came our great but he did give me some issues... guess he got his non-cooking buddies to bug me.
Finish #6 for this year.

Well we lost another great

Back in March of last year we lost the gentleman responsible for Kreinik Manufacturing.... What a great company dedicated to stitching supplies.

Now we have to say goodbye to his wife who went to Heaven to join him for the eternal party.

May their family find peace and comfort in knowing that they are in each others arms and also waiting until the day their love ones can join them.
