So I haven't been blogging - I've been stitching! I've joined Vonna's ornament SAL and for November we were challenged to stitch two ornaments: a christmas themed one and a Thanksgiving themed one. Well I finished the one above and am almost done stitching the autumn themed one, so I did it! Technically I'm supposed to be stitching for myself - the idea being that I end up with 24 ornaments at the end of the year, 12 for my tree and one to display for each month. The above ornament was for an exchange, so I didn't get to keep it, but I enjoyed stitching it so much that I will probably do it again for myself at some point. Regardless I am so happy that I was actually able to stitch enough this month to keep up - With a NEWBORN! Go Me! LOL! When I finish the autumn one I'll add a pic and then move on to the December challenge: two Christmas ornies! That will be tough in the month of December, but I'm willing to try my best.
Lovely pile of stash from Lynn S in MN for a Christmas ornament exchange! A darling ornament, some yummy fabrics - perfect for finishing, a cute little set of snowman cards and some snowflake buttons! Thanks Lynn!
Another Stash addition - This from Amy B in NJ - also for an ornament exchange; A Super cute Snowman ornament - I LOVE Snowmen! two kits for snow folks, a Prairie Schooler Santa and a cute New Jersey Magnet. Thanks Amy!
LOL - My latest finish - Grace Kathryn! born October 13th - Isn't she cute
I am a Mom, a growing, struggling and damn good mom of 4 but that's not all I am. You know what I mean - There are layers to me - Yes I'm a Stay at Home Mom, used to be a working mom, I am also an artist, a wife, a little funny, a bit of a slob who loves things neat and organized (is that an oxymoron?) I am an overweight and philisophical woman with ideas, passions and dreams. My job right now is to raise my kids to be happy healthy and productive members of society, save money and loose weight while doing it, and of course, not loose my mind at the same time. :) This blog is about all that and whatever else I am in the mood to talk about.
