Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to all.

Thank you to all the military who fight every day for our freedom. I would also like to thank all their family members for providing support to each of them. I know it is difficult for both them and their families for them to serve (both my brothers are military).

Stitching Again....

I stitched this past weekend for the first time in months. I just have not felt like it. I have not had a lull like this in a long time. I posted two pictures of the Minnie Bag because I could not decide which one showed her better. Now all I have to is put the back stitching in and I am done.

For my next project I want to do something small, fun and whimsical.  I do not want to have to think a whole lot while doing it.

Stitch-a-ly yours,

No Time to Stitch

Once again I have had no stitching time this past week. I have been working alot and now I have a deadline to meet on Tuesday. This afternoon I will be working from home so I can get it done. Just what I wanted to do on my Sunday off.

Hopefully sometime in the near future I can show an updated picture of Minnie.

Lagging with the stitches,

No Stitching Time and a Thank You

Since I started my blog I have been unable to stitch. I have been working late. By the time I get home I am to tired to stitch. Got several big deadlines due at work for next week but after that I am planning on having some quality stitching time.

I would like to thank every one for all the nice comments that have been left on my blog. I think it is great that there are crafters who still like to cross stitch. None of my friends or family cross stitch so I have really no one to talk stitching with. They tell me they can't and don't see how I can sit there and stitch.  My response to them is I don't see how or why they can't.

I heard one time the cross stitch was a dying art and now I am hearing that it is making a come back.  My best friend taught me how when I was 15 years old. She gave a few basics and I took it from there. I never thought I would still would enjoy it as much as I do 28 years later. I would like to add now best friend does not stitch that much anymore she has taken up scrap-booking. I told she was a traitor and she laughed at me.

I hope to have an update picture to post soon.

Stitch-a-ly Yours,

Minnie Mouse Bag

This is what she looks like today.

This is a picture of the Minnie Mouse bag that I am making for my neice. I started on her December 2010. I hope to be finished within a couple of weeks.

The 1st Post

this is my first post. i am new to blogging but i thought i would give it a try.

i am setting up this blog so i can share my stitching with my family and friends. i have been cross stitching for the last 28 years. it is my MOST favorite hobby in the world despite that i do not know how to finish them. i have had some great finishes but i told someone what i wanted and they finished it for me.

i cross stitch to relax and to have "me" time. i try to stitch a little every day but sometimes life gets in the way and stitching takes a back seat. i usually get in 4-5 hours a week of "me stitching time". there is nothing better than to sit on the couch after a day work and stitch the night away. well, at least until 11pm anyway. i dont do sleep deprived very well makes for a difficult day.

until next time....

stitch-a-ly yours,
