Wow, it's been a while...

Wow, it's been a while since my last post. I have been stitching - but a bunch of other things took front seat for a while. There seemed to be a lot going on at my kid's schools, I organized our annual block party and I got completely HOOKED on the Twilight Series and literally spent every spare second of 6 days/nights straight reading the 4 books and then, of course I had to watch the movie (twice) and there was no way I could stitch during it... (Thanks, hubby for being SO understanding and sorry for being an absent-minded mommy during that time kids!)

So, now that I am grounded in reality's a few small items I've worked on.

The first is one finish of the Halloween pattern from the Just Cross Stitch magazine. I actually made two of these and finished them slightly differently. I gave one to my sister but forget to take a picture of it. I'll try to remember to take one the next time I'm over there. I splurged and bought the JABC Halloweens Pins for these. I love them! I split them between her pinkeep and mine.

The other piece I've been working on is "Hen Party" by Little House Needleworks. I am making this for a friend who has a house and barn just like this that they have been restoring. Rather than Hen Party at the top I am going to put their last name.

Once I finish this up I think I'm going to start working on some Christmas ornaments. I think my best bet with all the holidays coming up, fall break for my kids, New Moon (the next Twilight movie coming out ;-) etc., is to keep my projects small for right now until after Christmas. This way I don't feel the pressure of trying to finish up big projects. Well, that's it for now. I have been enjoying all of your blogs and work! Thanks for all the inspiration!


  1. Oh dear, you've been sucked into Twilight too I see! It is wonderful isn't it? I love those books, and I can't wait for New Moon either :) Your Halloween stitch is so cute, I love it! Have a good day!

  2. I love your finish. This is such cute design and I love the pins!

    Still trying to get to the Twilight books.

  3. DD has all the Twilight books - I have yet to be allowed to borrow them but I keep asking LOL. My neice in US is Twilight mad and has a fab Twilight decorated bedroom. Can't wait for the next movie.

    I love your stitching, I've joined the Little House Ornies SAL too :)

  4. Beautiful stitching! Those Twilight books can be a little habit forming, can't they? I am looking forward to seeing New Moon. Check out Paulette's blog archives (Plum Street Samplers). She has a great Edward/Jacob freebie on there. :) Love the Halloween finish.

  5. Hi Meredith. Would you please send me an email with your address? Ahnalin drew your name out of the basket for the Yaya's Apron and a copy of the Ebook too.

    Go watch the video. She is pretty darn cute!
