Elizabeth is Out!

I stitched a little last night which I think was a mistake as I had the beginnings of a cold.  I made an error on the left hand side of the over skirt that I have to remove.  I am too busy to be sick!!!

A New Start


I needed something to carry around so I found this Christmas ornament in my stash.  I doubt it will get  done in time, but I may get it done by 2015.

Harvest Sampler Finished!

I am getting close to being ready for Christmas.  Oldest is coming home from college tonight and the Christmas program starts at church this evening.  If I can get my candy out today, it will be a great day.  If not, there is always Monday...

Crow is Beaded

Thanks for the encouraging words.  Yes, lets finish Elizabeth in 2015 Pamela!  I think Harvest Sampler will get done before the end of the year.  I am able to take it with me when I go certain places and have lots of time. Or I work on it when I don't feel like stitching on the pilot piece.

The Beading is Progressing

I was disappointed that I did not post every day in November, but I realized too late that I could not stitch on my pilot project and Elizabeth and do my normal life.  What is a normal life anyway?  Elizabeth has returned to the basement as Christmas decorations are up.  Once I get all the pilot stitching done, she will come back up and get my attention.  My dd is disappointed that I never made myself a Christmas stocking.  I have the pattern, but where is the time?

Funky Little Coffee Mat

I bought this at the Des Moines quilt show this year and decided it would make a great carry along project.  It did!  All I meed to do is the blanket stitch around the edge.  The design is by Darlene Smith of One Wing Wool out of Minnesota.  Here is a link to her website:  onewingwool.com

So much for posting daily....

I have been creative every day, even if I don't post....Here is my progress on Harvest Sampler.  I love when I get to adding the beads although it means I can no longer carry the piece around.  I have spilled beads at a coffee house once.  What a pain!
