all stitched!

I now have my little piece all stitched, and ready to be put into a mini quilt. I was originally planning on doing a couple more to add to the quilt but I'm thinking now I really want this to be the area of focus since I really love how it turned out. Any suggestions on what pattern would really help this stand out?

Today is my hubbies Birthday, so we get to enjoy 2 wonderful occasions this week. Hope everyone has a splendid Thanksgiving!

i heart etsy!

I got the best package yesterday that I have been anticipating, the most beautiful afghan. A few weeks ago I contacted Janet, an etsy seller, and asked if she would make a custom afghan for me. Last winter I had seen a wip of one with the same pattern on flickr, shortly after I went and got all the supplies and a dvd from the library to learn how to crochet. Then I opened my etsy shop and didn’t have time to commit to learning. Hopefully in the up coming years I’ll be able to learn this amazing art, but for now, am sooo excited to have this beautiful afghan.

Janet also made me some coasters, washcloths and a pot holder! THANKS!!

Off to go snuggle under my new afghan and stitch away. :)

week-end stitching

I enjoyed a little week-end stitching and started a new project for Christmas. I'm planning on making this into a little mini quilt to hang on the wall; I have this one and a few others to do from Annie's Christmas Cute set. I also ordered a couple other sets that I can't wait to get started on. I love how you get a whole set of patterns for one really reasonable price. So many possibilities that you can do many projects with!

Hope everyone has a super spectacular week!! It is a wet and rainy Seattle day so maybe I'll get some more stitchin time in. :)

geese in a circle

For The Pillow Talk Swap I decided on the geese in a circle; a great tutorial found here. It was my second time paper piecing, and by the end of the block I really was getting it down, and not having to think through each step. I really am beginning to LOVE paper piecing. Now I just need to add a border and then decide how I want to quilt it. I sure hope my partner likes it!!

Wishing you a fantastic Friday!!

all things girly!

I am so excited that I received the cutest little hand stitched piece from Heather yesterday!! It is sooo cute. Heather also sent some cute fabric designed by my sister in law, Tasha. It was so thoughtful of Heather to go out of her way to buy this adorable fabric just for me! THANKS, I love it all!! :)

The adorable hoop already has a new home in my girls room! I thought I'd also take a few additional pictures of a couple other new additions in their room as well. They just love all the new decorating, and I still have a little left to do. :)

The cutest knitted clothes and line I had made!

Our newest vintage irmi lamp.

Hope everyone is have a splendid day!!

hand stitched~ a bike for heather!

I finished my hand stitched piece for heather, and just in time for the deadline that is tomorrow. It will be on it's way in the morning. :) Since Heather and I are both so new to embroidery (my second piece) we had asked to be matched up. She mentioned that she loved the bike pattern from sublime stitching, and it seemed like a great one that would help me learn a couple new stitches but not be too intimidating. It was a fun piece!! Now I'm ready for some more!! I love how calm and soothing embroidery can be. It seems as though it is meditating for the mind. A must have in my fast pace life. Anything to slow me down, and give a chance to ponder all the things important in my life.

oh happy day!

Today is a great day, thanks to my mail man!! i LOVE days when you get to open fun packages. The first is from Amy. We did a little swappy-poo, for the most adorable placemat, and I sent her some lovely fabrics. I am absolutely in love with the placemat!! It is sooo cute!! Amy is going to make some more in the up coming months, so I have a whole set. Yippie!!

I love the little fruit and veggies!!

The second package was from Susi! The cutest mini deer quilt!! It had to go right up on the wall in my sewing room! I love it!!

one of the deers made out of green seedlings!! :)

I have Susi's mini all done and packaged. It will be in the mail on Monday. It's a little late, but hopefully it will travel quickly to it's new home.
Hope you're having a splendid day!
