September Smalls

Well, it is very frustrating to have followed all the instructions and gone through a lot of effort to get it right and then things just don’t work out! I ordered the specified box from Hobby Lobby for Spring Arose and my piece is TOO BIG to fit on it. I double checked. It’s the …

My first biscornus

For the Christmas Ornies SAL last month, the theme was blingy ornaments. I could have stayed safe and done one of my numerous very blingy Mill Hill kits. But, I have really been wanting to do the Victoria Sampler Biscornuments and this was a good excuse. They were fast to stitch up so I made …

Another Month, a New Batch of Starts

I finished Fraktur Friends! I love it!  (Where is my picture??) To celebrate, I kitted up all the things I hope to work on (and complete) in the next  month. And then I started them all. First, the 2001 Prairie Schooler Santa. 2001 is important for me because it is my anniversary year. I like …

I’ve been working away on these 3 ornaments in an effort to get them finished-finished so I can put them away with all the Christmas things! I need to take the tree down this weekend, so it looks like I have a shot! The Christmas SAL Partridge is done-just needs to be finished into something, …

Many little things 

Ahh…it’s the first week of January and can I already be off track? Or am I enjoying an extended vacation and just living by my whims? That’s it. I’ll get serious next week! My whims have me doing 3 ornaments: First, Christmas Blessings is coming along nicely. Next up is a Mill Hill kit (you …
