Sorry for the late post!!!
I spent some much needed time with family yesterday.
I started doing this stitchery for "Friday Night with Friends"
 and finished it with "Friday Night Sew In"!!
Completely by chance :)

I have done 4 of the little designs for the mug rugs, 
and have already changed my mind to maybe do another two???
Not sure yet.
I'm a bit of a home body, thought it might encourage me to invite some people around.
My home is definitely my safe haven :)
I have yet to get the fabric for it. I wish I knew what Janelle Wind used,
but I was thinking I might substitute with Flower sugar or some Lakehouse, not sure yet.
Hope everyone else had a wonderful and relaxing night!

Queen of Hearts...Happy Valentines day everyone!!!

I remember when I had started my craft magazine collection,
 I came across some sweet heart shaped cushions.
I think the were from a "Country Threads" magazine, but it was so long ago that I just can't remember :(
They were in country colors and looked very cute!
I had recently been to spotlight and bought three colorways of some fabric to make shorts to wear around the house. I had also been collecting lots of different types and colors of braid and laces.
Then an idea came to mind.......
I made myself three lovely sweet hearts!!!!
So much for the shorts! Ha ha!

Happy Valentines day to you all!
Lots of love and sunshine coming your way!!!

Here is my very first result for Friday Night Stitching With Friends!!!
While doing this I was so distracted that I over flowed my fish tank by some literage.
So, this entry will be short because I now have a very wet and smelly rug to sort out.
Had a lovely relaxing time with everyone (until I noticed the tank)!!

See you all next time :)
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Out of the closet!!!!

I was having trouble matching cushions with the color scheme of my couch
a few years ago so I decided to make my own.
I found a likely pattern in a craft magazine,
lamented for months over the materials to use,
and eventually got to stitching and sewing!
Wouldn't you know it, I made 4 cushions, and then decided when I finished them........
I don't like that!!!!!!!!! They don't go!!!!!!!! Damn!
Stuff them in the wardrobe :(   Maybe I can give them away????

There they hid for over a year when I go to take this photo to show you and hey!!
I've got a new couch now, and they look good there!!!
So now they have a place to shine.....FINALLY!!!!

Also, check out my "Things I have made" page. 
I have added some stories there also!!
