For Christmas, I made pacifier leashes for each of the children still little enough to have pacifiers (or plugs, as we call them). There is one each for Maggie and Sarah, my nieces. Maggie is my husband’s sister’s daughter, and … Continue reading →
These are the felt ornaments I made for my son, my husband and myself. Its a family tradition that everyone in my household gets a new ornament. I just tweaked the tradition a bit when I got my own household, … Continue reading →
I made this set of dolls for my son for Christmas. The rectangle behind them is a felt lined bag with a big plastic zipper for him to keep it in. It has a nursery rhyme pattern on it, which … Continue reading →
We have our internet problems solved! My hiatus is at an end. Now I just have to get back into the habit of blogging and posting in my online cross stitch groups.
Below, I have posted several new blog entries, one for each of the projects I completed while I was gone. I am currently working on the kit I received for Mother’s Day, on and off, while I also work on my Christmas projects. I still have several ornaments to make, sets of hand warmers, custom pacifier clips, and custom dice bags. I am also making a set of dolls for my son, and a storage bag to keep them in. I have finished the cross stitch for that project, as well as one the dice bags, and just need to run in through the sewing machine in the next day or so. I am also making a sweatshirt with angel wings on the back for me, using gold Kreneik #4 and white satin DMC. I won’t be working on that until I get a little more done on my Christmas projects.
On a personal note, I now have another niece. My niece, Sarah Ann, was born October 21st. She’s a very big girl! She was born at just over 11lbs. Two of my Christmas projects are for her. I am making her a pacifier clip.
I also have a tradition that I do. I do not have a “Baby’s First Christmas” ornament, despite the fact that each of my siblings have 2. As a result of this, I am determined that no child born into my family will be without one. Now, every time a new baby is born into my family, I design and stitch a one of a kind one for them, and I never use the chart again. I need to design and stitch Sarah’s in the next few weeks.
I hope to post more images of the things I’m almost done with later this week.
These Santa cones are to go on my mantle during the holiday season. I made them using a chart and pattern from a 1986 book my husband got me for Valentine’s day a few years ago. Unfortunately, the pattern for … Continue reading →
I made a new cover for the cushion that I normally keep my cat cushion cover on, which I made last year. This one will go on the “cat cushion” during the Christmas season, which in my house, runs from … Continue reading →
I made this cross as a Christmas present for my husband. He saw the kit at Jo-ann’s each time we went there this spring, and kept asking me to make it. When I went back in July, I found the … Continue reading →
I am in a Monday night Bible study with three other women. We took a week off in September, so I took the time in between meetings to make bookmarks for each of the ladies in my group, and one … Continue reading →
This is the Rams hoodie I made for my son. I finished it a few months ago, not long after we lost our internet. If you wish to see better images of the details, I’ll soon have them posted to … Continue reading →
I have to take an involuntary hiatus for the next few months. My husband and I can no longer afford to keep our internet, so as of this evening, we will be having it shut off. I will try to check in periodically, and post when I finish any big projects, via the wifi at my local Starbucks. I cannot promise that it will be very frequent though.
I am hoping to get my internet back in Spring, as my husband is intending on joining the construction union then, and will be making more money. When we can afford to have the internet again, we will, and I will be back to posting more regularly (hopefully more regularly that I have been in the past few months).
