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.
