Last weekend was a Facebook SAL, and it seems weird to me to blog progress in the middle of a SAL. So you get 2 weeks at once!Right now my SAL piece is Fairy Sisters, which fits in with the August Theme-a-licious, too.Here's where I was at the beginning of the SAL:And at the end… Continue reading My Week(s) In Stitches and a Theme-a-Licious Checkin
It's just one piece of mail, but it's been sooooooo long since I had any stitching supplies arrive! Thanks to 123stitch for nearly instant gratification!There's not a lot here, but I'm excited about it!I put the throw pillow from my bed behind so you can see how nicely the colors work together - this will… Continue reading Happy Mail Day To Me!
It's been a very quiet week here - the kids were in Vacation Bible School every night which meant I had solid blocks of daylight evening hours for stitching! What???I managed to finish-finish two-thirds of the baby gift for my friend (the parts I've finished are actually their own little ensemble, the third piece will… Continue reading My Week In Stitches
Sorry I'm a little late this weekend. I'm not one for crazy-busy Saturdays - I like to really take a day off, sleep in, get some things done around the house. But yesterday my church hosted the annual Community Block Party, and I'd volunteered to help. So that was a long hot day. I also… Continue reading My Week In Stitches
Thank you for all the nice comments on my posts last week. You're all so supportive, I love the crafty blogosphere!It's strange to think that at this time last year I was in Las Vegas with my friends, knitting poolside during the day and going out and having fun at night. Most of what I… Continue reading My Week In Stitches

Welcome, Pinners! I'm blown away every time I see someone has pinned this design - I'm glad you like it or are inspired by it. If you stitch it, will you share a picture with me? I may feature some in a future post. Thanks! - dreaIt's less of a sampler, I think. Although it… Continue reading I Told You It Would Be Celtic!
And apparently it has an Irish theme. I don't know, I was just grabbing colored pencils. It's been so long since I designed anything, and I really have no idea when (if) I'll stitch it...
A quick update on my WIPs:Hallie's sweater is nearly done! Hooray! Her birthday is on the 7th. I was getting worried about finishing it in time, mostly because I wasn't picking it up and working on it. I'm on the second sleeve now. Once this is done I'll be back to knitting legwarmers. By the… Continue reading My Week In Stitches
I'm sorry to say that the break I've taken has been mostly for negative personal reasons. I'm not through all of it yet, I'm very much at the beginning still. But I feel more able to blog about things I enjoy; there's been a time when my...filter...didn't engage properly, fortunately that's mostly been with personal… Continue reading Back After A Very Long Hiatus
