Wavering Wednesday

I haven’t gotten into my sewing room today :(, but it is only the beginning of the evening. I have the greenlight for the photo quilt and I am eager to get started on it. My pattern is done, now to start cutting and organizing it. I am “wavering” because I am nervous about it.

I don’t have a photo today, it is just one of those days. Thank goodness that tomorrow is Thursday and then there is Friday.

Hmmmmm….I think my low mood is showing.

I’ll cheer myself up and maybe enlighten you….here is one of my favourite sites:


I really like what Annie is doing with stitching and then putting all of the pieces together. She is so creative.



Tuesday’s Twitterings

I don’t even twitter, but I heard that it is fun and it is fast becoming the “in” thing.

I have been back and forthing between this wonderful lady who owns this site, Chiseled in Cloth.  Margaret Bucklew makes these neat portrait quilts and I am trying to create the pattern for one as a gift to my SIL, of my nephew

Now who can resist this face?  I have tried to do the pattern but I am so unsure of myself that I contacted the woman who I bought the book from and she will do a pattern for a fee, so I sent her four different photos of S above and am waiting back to see if this would be a good candidate for a portrait quilt.  I really hope so.  I love that face.  I mean, who can resist those blue eyes.  My SIL’s brother is my husband and he has the same eyes…I couldn’t resist.

Anyway, time to feed the dog.

Happy Stitching,


Angel Swap has OFFICIALLY started!

I just received my secret partner for the Angel Swap.  We have so much in common and she is such an inspiration to me!  I have already started something that will certainly suit her.  It is nice to make stuff for other people … kind of warms the spirit.  Just what the doctor ordered!  And speaking of which I just finished my first morning back to work; taking an extra long lunch to relax.  I sure will be happy to feel normal once again, slowly but surely.

Off for my tea and then back to school.

Keep on stitching.


Sunday’s Baptism

Well, today we have a baptism to go to. My nephew, my one and only on my husband’s side of the family. I really wanted to finish a special gift for him, a portrait photo BUT….my surgery took precedence (sp?) so now it is a UFO. For a gift I ended up getting a small memorybox, from the willow company. It has a family molded onto it, Mother, Father, Older sister and younger brother….just perfect I think for putting those little family treasures in. I also got a little Nike outfit ;)….couldn’t reseist. I also got the token baptism giftee….kind of looks like a paperweight, with a litle boy praying.

Not too long ago I cross stitched a baby bib for an acquaintance’s granddaughter, I did two for the above baby but didn’t take any pictures…so in the spirit of babies, here is the recent bib. I also want to start posting my pictures of the crafting I do.  I hadn’t really noticed just how much I do.

Nayla's bib
Narella's bb

I love these bibs from Charlescraft and I usually make them for my friends and relatives. I would really like to make my own from start to finish but it is the cross stitch band that is inserted into them that gives me the trouble.

Time to get going…a little stitching and then out for the day.

Happy Stitching,
