Yes I am a day late checking in. Things around the house are pretty crazy. Our son was here for a week gathering his clothes and necessary household supplies to take out to North Carolina with him. So lots of time going through boxes deciding what goes what stays and what just need to be dumped/donated.

Along with that work got really busy with finishing one engine and getting 2 others ready to reassemble.

Then when I had time to stitch what did I do???? Oh I took a sewing class......well that technically is stitching   :-)

The question this month: Are there any fibers or materials used in stitching that you’re nervous to try?

I am not nervous to try any I just do not care to use certain things because for me they are not relaxing. I do not care for eavenweave, linen, silks or beads.

What have I worked on???? Well I have finished the Friendship Compass from the Glendon Place Facebook group, Warm Winter Wishes by Waxing Moon, Boo from Just Cross Stitch Magazine. I started and finished Vampire from Glendon Place Monster March, The Pilot that I created myself with the help of a few stitchers and a designer friend and finally a bag I made for a friend that will be a Christmas present.

These 2 are of course part of my Halloween decorations.

This is the bag I made as a gift it says Hunting and Fishing and also has charms attached, the little pilot will also be made into a similar bag. 

If you would like to see more detailed pictures of these projects you can look on my other posts here on the blog.

My current WIP is Lightening McQueen from Disney. Another gift for Christmas. All of my work from now until the end of the year will be gifts. I hope to have enough time to complete all I have planned.
My sewing class was for a clutch purse. I made for myself and I am so happy with how it turned out. I definitely will be making more. 
I hope you enjoy you time here. Stop back and check in. I try to update about twice a month. 


  1. Wow. I think you got alot done even with all of your other activities.

    1. Thank you. It has been a full month and November looks just as full.

  2. You accomplished a lot! I especially like your Boo letters. The finishing is wonderful; I love the silver cording, the fabrics you chose and the buttons are really cool. The skeletal hand is a nice touch too.

    1. Thank you that was definitely a fun one to put together.
