I should be trying to finish some of the many WIP's but nope,... very distracted at the moment. But I promise not to start on this one until I finish one of my current projects ;-). The pattern is part of a free PDF download from Hobby Lobby,... the one below.

There are various free downloadable pamphlets from Hobby Lobby where you should be able to find the one above, Getting Stitchy, among a few others ;-). Some of them with beautiful project ideas and others have actual projects with patterns. I think Hobby Lobby creative team got it right!
Oh, yes, here is the link! Have fun!

Violets and Plans

This is what my Violets look like up to this date. I haven't been able to stitch lately. However, there might be some project progress taking place over the weekend.

Spring Stitching Club is just a couple of weeks away from coming to an end,... really need to step it up a bit stitching and joining hexies!

Until Next Time!

PS: Hard to fall asleep without A/C... temps. are in the 80's inside the house... :-(.

Beware of Distractions!

Taking care of priorities it is a must. Self-control aids with keeping distractions at bay.

However, at times, you need to give in a little bit... just don't let it become a habit :-).

So, that was exactly what I did while waiting for dinner to be ready. Let me give you a peek! First let us delight in the projects in "Stitch Along: 10 stitchers: 30 projects: 100 embroidery motifs". So many cute projects on this book! Three projects per designer plus more embroidery patterns in the back of the book. I was familiar with the work of 6 of the designers and now happy to learn about 4 more! This is a great book!

Second, "Teeny Tiny Menagerie: 380 Whimsical & Wonderful Animal Embroidery Motifs" it's the ENGLISH (I get very excited when super cute Japanese embroidery books are translated to a language I can understand!) and I already have the Japanese version but now I will truly get to benefit from the author's pointers and instructions... so exciting!!! Well, I better go now and finish dinner ;-).

Until next time!

Crafting Varieties

These past few weeks were really busy,... and it's not over yet! No free time to pick up a needle but did manage to craft in different ways ;-).

I was finally able to try a recipe from this book and to perform a quick DIY manicure (3 years since my last).

All ingredients in a parchment paper pouch baked for 30 minutes. Can not recall the recipe page in the book (too exhausted and achey from Spring cleaning duties to go and check) but if I am not mistaken it is called Tropical Fish or something like that.

Different versions and portions to suit family needs... (husband's pictured above, oldest below and the baby ate something else).

DIY manicure done in the morning. Still going strong after all I did today!
Hopefully next time I will have some embroidery wip's progress to blog about.
