Welcome To My Corner Of The Cross Stitching World!

I love cross stitch, chocolate, tea, exercise and my heating pad under a pile of blankets. I am a little ADD and extremely busy with life so don't always post as I should. I usually only update with new stitching accomplishments but, may try to blog a little more in the near future. HOWEVER, if you are here visiting me, I hope I can make you smile and bring joy to your life even for a brief second.



After all, isn't life a bunch of brief seconds running after each other to weave the story of our life?

Found My Head Today!

Whew, first time in a while since I posted; been working 12 hour days again. I haven't stitched all week; have not had time. Work has been crazy 8-8:30pm every day. Not complaining because we have been blessed, considering the economy .But, man on man, my stitching has suffered! I have 3 exchanges to complete in the next few weeks and another UFO and Christmas ornie to accomplish for the month. I have not EVEN picked up my Peppermint Twist SAL except to move it from the couch to a chair but, I will get to it. I am taking this Thursday (9th) and Friday (10th-MY BIRTHDAY) off and am planning to stitch up a storm. I cannot believe I will be 47 years old. Where has the time gone? WELL, here is how I have spent some of my almost 47 years.

UFO'S COMPLETED JAN.-MAR. 2009



CHRISTMAS ORNIES COMPLETED JAN.-MAR.2009



MOST RECENT FAIR & SQUARE EXCHANGE PIECES
STITCHED FOR JEANIE CHOW IN SINGAPORE.
(JBW Designs "A Very Merry Spring")





And I received my Fair & Square Easter Exchange from Jeanie Chow in Singapore! How Cute! It is a freebie from San Man Originals. Perfect for Easter.




Round 11 piece stitched for Cyndi H.
(
Motif from Victoria Sampler-"Where Stitchers Gather")


My piece I received from her is on February 14th posting.

This should complete my stitching so far for the year. (will probably find one stuck somewhere, if so, will post) :)

I just love the little stocking ornament. Great choice of colors. Could you tell me who designed the piece?
