Selling some Stash

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to let everyone know that I found a great website to sell the stash that I know I won't be using or things that I have stitched that do not go with my decor. Please take a look from time to time. I have only a few things on there, but I will be going home tonight to go look through my leaflets to see if there is anything that I will not be using. Maybe one of you could use it. Please visit at my Etsy site. On stitching....I've done quite a bit. Right now, I'm working on Christmas cards for selling and I'm still working on my son's stocking. Hoping to get pictures up soon. I hope everyone is doing well!!

Busy Weekend

Hi Everyone, I had a pretty busy weekend. For the first time in my life, I've finally been able to redo my whole living room. We were able to buy a couch set with recliner, a new entertainment center, and a new flat screen tv. This is big for me! Sorry, I'm just still so overwhelmed at the moment. So anyways, we also went to fly our kites but there wasn't enough wind. You know, I don't like windy days, but that day...I was praying for wind.... There's always another day though.

Well, so I stitched a little on my Snips-N-Snails this weekend but not enough to show for. I spent most of my weekend stitching some logo plaques for two of my husband's co-workers. For his birthday, I had stitched him his logo with his name underneath that. I couldn't believe how great it looked as a finished product...and so easy. Well, I should've taken a picture of my husband's finished one, but I didn't. So now people are asking him how much I would charge to make them one. I made three before Christmas and this year 3 more have been requested. I've finished two and now I've got one more left to do. Because I was doing so many, I told my husband that he was going to have to ask whoever handles the logo copyright, if it was okay for me to be doing this. Yay..its okay! So anyways, when I can figure out how to blur the name that I stitched, I'll take a picture and show how great the logo looks stitched.

New Finish and Snips N Snails Update

I joined a secret Freebie Kit-up exchange at Jaynes Attic and I recieved mine from my partner this past friday. I thought it was so cute! Its a freebie from the Rainbow Gallery and my partner sent me evenweave, Six Strand sweets to stitch it with, a charm, some ribbon and fabric. I was so excited that I already stitched it. I don't even know if I was supposed to even open it yet, but anyways here's my finish.

So then I finished that one and kept going on my stocking. So here's my progress pic.

Snips N Snails Start

When I first started cross stitch at 17, I always said that one year I would cross stitch a Christmas stocking for everyone in my household. That means I have to do four of them. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I headed into a consignment store looking for something particular and I walked out with a binder full of "Cross Stitch and Country" magazines. I was so happy!! In there, there are three stockings that I need to stitch. The first one will be for my son, the second one will be for my husband, then my mom and then mine. This is the start of the first stocking. I started it two days ago. The chart is hard to read (small symbols) but its been fun so far. I'm loving it.

And this is what its gonna look like!
