Stitchathon Cut Short

My Stitchathon plans went a bit sour.
Got really sick on Saturday and was not able to stitch as much as I wanted.
I did make a bit of progress on my Daisychain Sampler.
Done with D and E!
This is how it looks so far!
I didn't want to go for my digital camera so I used
my phone, that's why the pictures are not that great.
Then I moved to something else and stitched this cute
I think so far this is my most favorite Sublime Stitching pattern, so far!
The other 3 designs in this pattern are very cute as well.

I've printed the pattern sheet on Sticky Fabri-Solvy, it was easy
to stitch with. Another not so glamorous shots... oh well!
I already rinsed it and washed it... already wore it and soiled it! :-)
The Sticky Fabri-Solvy melted completely with no residue that I can see or feel.
I'm still battling this cold/flu thankfully fever is down and I'm not shivering anymore.
Fall brings beautiful weather to spend it inside sick sipping soup.
Enjoy your week!

Stitchathon Weekend

Thankfully I'm feeling better but to be on the safe side will take it easy this weekend.

(Please note: 3rd picture on 1st vertical column Picture Attribution to Mollie/Wild Olive. More info on this picture on her blog, almost at the end of this post:
(You can also find the pattern on her etsy shop: here.)

Easy when it comes to errands and chores but not from stitching.
I'm declaring this weekend
9/21/12 to 9/23/12 my
Stitchathon Weekend.
Let see how much progress
I can make on my wips!
Will be posting progress throughout
on my new Instagram. It is sooo easy to upload pictures there and you can upload as many as you like.

When my Stitchathon comes to an end, then I will post here my accomplishment(s).
Hope y'all have a great weekend!

So Much To Stitch... little time!
(Note: All pictures on this post are linked.)

Stitching is one of my favorite therapies... must keep at it, must find time.

For tonight I'm just going to rest
and see how I feel in the morning.

So much to stitch,
so little time!

Ciao for now!

National Sewing Month

Isn't September national sewing
month? I believe it is.

It so happens that last month
released a hand embroidery
pattern set called:
Sewing Room.
How neat!!!
I got my copy few weeks ago
and may be stitching one of the
many designs in the pattern set soon...
Stay tune :-).

Back To Stitching!

Oldest Dd is back to stitching!
Remember her SS dachshund wip?
Well she made some progress this past weekend.
(work in progress shot)
If you took a look at the previous post you probably noticed
that she told me to rip her previous stitches because she
wanted to start over. It's amazing how in few months (in which she didn't 
embroider at all) she was able 
to do a better job... kids grow so fast!
I was stitching next to her when I took this picture but forgot to 
take a picture of the progress dd made before she 
put it away, however, while she napped a very proud momma went 
into her dd's basket to snap a few ;-).
She has really improved her backstitch!
Don't you think?
She is stitching this for her baby sister and requested my help
to turn it into a stuffed toy with a rattle and a "squeeker"
inside once she is done.
I made sure I left everything in its place after 
the photo shoot.
 (Just so you know this is how she keeps her things... 
I do not.. and I repeat, I do not 
arrange her things whatsoever. She loves to keep her things
just so and will notice right away if something is not in place.)
She asked me if I can get her a larger basket because
her stash fits a bit tight on this one. I told her that maybe but only 
if she keeps up with her stitching. 
I thought she has lost interest but I guess she was only 
on a long stitchy break.
We have made plans to do a Mom and Daughter Stitch-Along
... will share details on a future post.
