Miss Mary Mack - all dressed for Halloween

Ugh lighting stitching for photos stinks.  Any advice?  Anyway a couple of weeks ago I was able to FINALLY finish Miss Mary Mack (La di da) into a pillow, it was my first throw pillow and it came out pretty good, even if it took almost my one whole free day during Fall Break.  that is Black fabric with silver buttons on the back. I discovered my sewing machine does not have a buttonhole foot so i just attached the buttons. I added fringe to the edges because I am tired of finishing plain pillows.  She will be Halloween regular :)

Just a(nother) little snowman

This one Took me years, literally! It has been half done forever. (Note to self- snowmen over one are BORING). He is by Twisted threads in the 2003 JCS ornament mag.

Lee, I am sending you the snowman pattern from the last post. ( as soon as I email you to get your address). Maybe you can pay it forward to Tammy :) (Kim, I have something for you too).

Sampler Snowman

I finished finished this guy a couple of days ago. Don't ask me when I finished stitching him, but I know it was this year ( I think... ) ANYWAY he is Sampler Snowman by HomespunElegance. I want to pass on the pattern along with my leftover Caron Wildflowers thread in "Fiesta"(for the alphabet) if any one wants it. Just leave a note in the comments, if there is more than one ill do a drawing :)

Halloween finish

I just finished Halloween Acorn House by Jeanette Douglas designs from last years JCS Halloween issue, I am having trouble finding nice fabric for the back, a lot of Halloween fabric is too cutesy for this.

Look I finished something!

Oh my goodness, could I have more to do? I think this is only my 2nd finish this year. ( boy does that piss me off). These are to be Christmas gifts, I found them on vacation at Dixie Darlin, in Pigeon Forge, TN. They do not have a title are called Mixed bag Quilt Sleds by Foxwood Crossings , I think they were designed by the owner. I was not able to get much else there cause I had Hudson with me and we were getting the hairy eyeball.

Dimples Designs Freebie- Scarab

I stitched this for a small box top project for EGA. Found this freebie in my collection but could not find a pic of it online. I am not happy with it, though sparkly, it is not as pretty as I hoped.

New Years Resolution

A's Birth Sampler -Kissycross freebie
Originally uploaded by Stitching scientist

Life has been busy, but really when does it slow up? when your dead right? Anyway the past year I have been bogged down (stitch wise) with EGA projects (no offense ladies). So my new years Resolution is to do/finish BOTH birth samplers for my children before moving forward with ANYTHING else. Except maybe replacing the elastic in all H's cloth diapers, they were bought used - I'm about halfway done with that :)

Oh the picture? it is the freebie offered years ago by Kissycross (no longer available). I have changed alot of the fibers, and of course am doing it in english, but i am almost done, just the flowers and the saying to finish. I am not sure about the birds legs/beak color choice, the original yellow was not pretty, or about the bird house. and now I am even second guessing the blue border. One thing stitching has taught me, is that i do NOT trust myself when making color choices- often i end up wrong 3-4 times before i get it right.  I know the lighting is bad, and a bit small, but what do you think?
