Last Minute Stitching

I was able to do some last minute stitching last night.
With so much going on around here I didn't think it was possible.
(The patterns I used are generously shared by flickr member mmaammbr.)

However where there is a will there is a way... right? (is that how it goes?
On the NEwVP group there was a summer contest going on and I wanted to support 
the contest by participating. I had great experiences on previous SAL's so
after putting the girls to bed for the night I quickly got to work.

The host really outdid herself in finding sponsors... so many goodies as prizes.
However as some of you already know my embroidery stash is 
kind of overflowing but as aforementioned I mainly entered just for fun and participation.
Judges will only be looking at the stitching perse not at how the item 
was finished -which worked out great for me who had a chance to enter
at the last minute.

I only wanted to use the cute birdies on them since they remind me
of my 2 precious daughters.
My oldest is constantly singing lullabies to her baby sister who loves it!
Thankfully baby girl fell asleep on her swing and I was able
to finish the birdies on time to enter the contest.

 It took me almost an hour to complete, the size definitely helped since
these cuties are small... that is a 3 inch hoop.
I had a great experience, the rules were simple to follow so
my picture along with the required information was uploaded
with no hassles. It is nice to browse the entries and read
why the participant chose the particular pattern/category, etc. .

My entry is here... it felt so good to be able to stitch for a bit!
Later on I may applique this onto a onesie or t-shirt for baby girl. 
Until next time... 
Stitch On!

An Outing

Today I took advantage of the nicer weather, me feeling good and took the girls (and myself) for an outing.

We walked the outside area of the mall, stopped for a bit at the book store, met some friends for lunch and on our way back did a quick errand.

Even though I was badly tempted
with these pictured crafty goodies I was good and passed on them....
how-e-verrrrr, I can't get that Tilda one out of my head. I'm just curious about it since the format is different, hmmm, we'll see.

Maybe I just give in only this time (specially since is $$$) on the Tilda one to check it out and see for myself what's all about ;-).
Ooohhh, what will you do?
PS #1 (I'm hoping to catch up with your blogs by next weekend... thanks for stopping by!)
PS #2 (still without pc but found some applications that make posting from phone easier)

She Is Done!

Yes, Dancing Princess #2 it's all done!
When tracing her I made a few mistakes. It was with a permanent pen so it shows a bit but since she will be going dancing at night it won't matter that much.
She is ready to join her sister on the dance floor :-)!
Note: Free SAL Hosted by Lilipopo

Dancing Princess #2 Wip

I had the opportunity to do some stitching this past Sunday! 
A limited amount of time. It needed it to be small & cute :-).

The 2nd princess of Lilipopo's SAL was the perfect fit. Hopefully I will be able to finish it by tomorrow. Phew, just in time since I saw that the 3rd princess is about to be release!
PS #1 ( :-/ still without pc, posting from office pc)
PS #2 (Wild Olive -Molly- is celebrating her 8th blog anniversary and has a free treat for those that stop by within 24 hours only... if you love hand embroidery you don't want to miss it!)
