I played around with Blogger a year ago; decided this time maybe I'll change to it instead of the Multiply site for blogging. The only thing I don't like so far is the inability to have photo albums...have to think about that a while. Blogger does seem more flexible in other ways though.
Wanted to show everyone the goodies I got in the mail today from 1-2-3 Stitch, and also a clearance find from yesterday at Hobby Lobby. I couldn't resist the 2008 and 2009 Prairie Schooler Santas and I just love the Lizzie Kate Giggle Boxers...it says "You can touch the dust...but please don't write in it!" If anyone has been to my house, they can definitely relate to that!
Here is a photo of my lap quilt in progress. It has 12 Ohio Star blocks (a very simple quilt block). The quilt was made for a class on a quilt-as-you-go technique by Beth Donaldson from her Block by Block book that is now out of print. The class was taught by a friend in the Quilt Guild I belong to. I still need to assemble, quilt the borders, attach them and then bind the quilt. I hope to have this all finished up by next Tuesday night's Guild meeting; we'll see how productive I am this weekend.
I also hope to get busy with the Kustom Kraft September Mystery Stitch. It is a very cute butterfly and flower design that goes on a gift bag. If you're interested in this, it's not too late to join her Yahoo group and get in on this free design. I really like Dyan's designs.
Here is one very small finish from this spring. This little wall hanging has been on the wall in my office at work. Time to work on October I think!!
That's about it for today. Looking forward to a great weekend. Happy Stitching!
I'm a 50 something wife and mom who loves cross stitching, applique (particularly with wool), and quilting. I also love to read and garden. I share my life with Sam, my best friend and DH of 39 years. We have one son, Carl, who is 30. He is engaged to the most wonderful young woman, Katherine Lynn (better known as Katie), whom I am so proud to call my daughter. They will be married June 9, 2012. We have THE world's most precious almost-4-year-old grandson, Frank.
