My cousin’s wedding was this past weekend. It was beautiful. She was beautiful as always and I wish her and her hubby many years of happiness. They’ve already been together seven years and I believe they will continue to be a loving and devoted couple.

I did finish the stitch myself. I hope they like it. It can be displayed on a plate stand or as an ornament. Although it is a little big for that.

I just loved the wedding cake top.

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing around Etsy and had to get a couple of things that I needed. And by that I mean I just really wanted them.

A Grime Guard in Disney TsumTsum fabric for my qsnap. I’m addicted to the Tsum game on my phone. Hannah says I play it all the time. Which isn’t completely true. I still stitch, read and taxi her around.

I also found the most adorable needle minder. I truly didn’t need another one but it’s The Little Mermaid and she is my absolute favorite of all the princesses. I just love the little button on the back side. To cute.

Until the next post….


Another block done

July The Wind in the Willows

I have to admit I don’t know this story so I’ll have to read it out sometime. But first I’m moving on to the next block.

Happily Ever After

A few years ago I discovered The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  They have adorable patterns and sponsor several stitch a longs thru out the year.  Including a yearly mystery one were the patterns are released each month.  The first one I joined was the Once Upon A Time.  I skipped the next year’s which was titled Story Time, but after seeing it being worked on by my friend I ended up purchasing it and plan on stitching it.  I started last year’s but I am way behind.  It is titled Happily Ever After and basically the three together are a trilogy.

These are the parts I’ve completed…


Okay, so this first photo only shows progress for the first two months, but they are finished.  January The Owl and The Pussycat and February Heidi

March Three Billy Goats Gruff

April Around The World In 80 Days

May Robin Hood


June Little House On The Prairie

I’m currently stitching on the July block now that I finished the wedding gift.


First finish of 2018

I finished stitching this project last night. It’s the first real finish I’ve had in a long time. I was thinking about finishing it into an ornament but Sean things it’s to big for that. Not sure yet what I’ll do but i need to make a decision soon.

Almost finished

Well I think the title of this entry says it all. After two days of freezing temps and deciding to stay in doors where it’s warm, I’m almost finished with this project. I need to finish the border, add the date and instead of adding the beads I’m going to try a specialty stitch in their place. Though I can’t remember the name of the stitch I can picture it in my mind. It’s like a little star. 

Until the next update…

Another day of progress

Between loads of laundry and evening tv I managed to get quite a bit more done. This project is really moving along. My hope is that continues and I finish this by the weekend.

In other news the family had eye exams today. Our appointments were half hours apart from 3 to 4 pm. Hannah was scheduled to go into work at 4:30. However when we got there we learned that they were running almost an hour behind. We cancelled Hannah’s appointment then Sean took Hannah to work after he did his pre exam. A good thing to because it wasn’t until 4:30 before I was actually in the exam chair.

We went to LensCrafters where they now use this digital exam and it was pretty cool. I can’t remember the last time I saw that clearly. So I’m looking forward to getting my glasses and hoping they help with stitching and reading.

Until the next update….

Continuing on

I managed to get a few more stitches on my new start. It’s coming along great I think.

For Christmas one of my best friends gifted me with an Instant Pot. She and her husband got one just around a year ago and they love it. I decided my first meal using it this week will be a pork tenderloin. Fingers crossed all goes well.

Until the next update…
