Busy times

Sorry that it has been so long since my last post but I have realized that I am getting very close to that dreaded Christmas deadline and I have 4 projects to finish. So my computer time is reduced and my stitching time is increased. I hope that I get all of this done but if I do not then I will just have to plan better next year. I had thought I would get it all done early this year but I kept getting distracted by new fun stitches. And then I looked at the calendar and OH NO!!!!! it is the middle of October.

I have 3 finishes to show you 2 are gifts of course and they were so fun to do. Both are finished into bags and ready to wrap and set aside, ready for gifting.

First is stitched on a pre-made bag. For a friend who lives in Oregon and gets to enjoy the snow. I am so jealous I want to move back to snow country....... (sad face). I did this same pattern for myself several years back.
 It is a Waxing Moon Design named Warm Winter Wishes
The next one was not a pattern it was just an idea I got and put it together. This friend is an outdoors man so I made a duffle bag for him to carry with him when he goes out Hunting or Fishing. It is mean to be camouflaged so the picture may not show it to the best. In person it is easy to see the wording. I did it with waste canvas on cotton fabric with an outdoor themed print. In total this only took me 4 days. I love words they always seem to stitch up so fast. I also found some charms to add to the bag . This is such an easy bag to make. Fist picture was taken as I was stitching. Then as I was removing the waste and finally all the pictures on the finished project and the charms.

The last finish is the Friendship Compass pillow that I was stitching from the Glendon Place FB page. I love how it turned out. The greens and yellows really compliment each other.
I also wanted to show the Bewitched plaque that I added to the center of the Nora Corbet pixies. It is hard to get it to show up well in pictures but it really compliments the hanging.
And finally an update on the pilot that was the mystery stitch I had going on the blog this month. He is stitching up so cute. The collar of the jacket and the cuffs would have been wool so I am trying to decide if I want to do those in a turkey stitch to make it look fuzzy. I will head up to my LNS and talk to 
the owner she is great with ideas and she can help be decide what is best. 


  1. Your little pilot is so cute! You might want to try Rainbow Gallery Wisper for the fuzzy parts. :)

  2. Thank you. After talking with LNS lady.......I did go with the whisper thread. I was just not sure if it would work with this fabric. I came out wonderful. I appreciate you comments.
