I also got a small start on the October Kustom Krafts SAL. It will be a small poinsettia. It's supposed to go on top of a round jar, but mine may turn into a tree ornament. I'll have to see what I think once the stitching is complete. It really is on white fabric; my camera and I didn't get along very well today!
Last, serial starter that I am, I found the perfect pattern to make for my DH for Christmas! He was in a rock band for several years in high school and college, and at the ripe old age of 67, still loves his guitars!
In the next couple of weeks, I hope to go through my stash to start weeding out items I know I will never have time to stitch. I'll be listing them for sale on my other blog "Vicki's Stash to Go." It is currently empty, but be sure to check back, there will be lots of charts and kits up for grabs at great prices.
Eventually, I hope to go through my stitching magazines and may also have quilting kits, books, and other quilting goodies for sale as well.
For those of you who haven't met Oreo Cookie, my 'helping' kitty...here she is snoozing on my cutting table (on top of the fleece I bought to make a football-themed throw for our son for Christmas). She 'helps' me every second that I am in the house; following me everywhere I go. In this case, she was 'helping' me while I got the binding ready to sew on another Quilt of Valor.
Oreo is still sleeping, now cuddled securely under the quilt; have you ever seen such a 'helping' kitty?
And one last shot, taken this evening. Oreo is all sprawled out on the top of my messy desk...'helping' me as I read my e-mail and watch TV. With 'help' like this, no wonder it feels like I never get anything done! BUT, I must admit, I wouldn't trade our fur babies for anything.
One last item....check out this blog for a great giveaway: The Happy Needle. It runs through October 8th.
Until next time, have a GREAT week and Happy Stitching!
