This is how "exotic fibers" get into my work

I was trying to stitch, but somehow this ended up on my lap and my stitching away from me.

Can't believe the year is almost over!

The time seems to be flying by so fast. I don't even know where my year went. :( Christmas has come and gone, and my body decided to give me the PMS from Hell again so it's not been a very enjoyable one. I'm still not over it.  I seriously just want a hysterectomy, but I'm too young and everyone thinks I'll want kids some day. I don't want kids, and I'm tired of my girl parts making my life horrible whenever it decides to feel like it. :(

I started one of the Britty Kitties, which I have decided to give to a client of mine who has a 24 year old cat named Ham. He's really cute, but the past couple weeks he's been slowing down and not eating as much. I mean, the cat has lived way longer than most cats, so him passing away at some point isn't exactly a surprise. But it will devastate her. I always make sure to fuss over him every time I visit. He gets fresh water, creamo, and Whiskas Temptations (or what I like to call, Kitty Crack), and lots and l…

2012 Projects!

Hello Everyone! I have fallen off the face of the Earth! Ok so I haven't, but I also haven't really been stitching too much the past couple weeks and don't have much to show you on Paladin. I have been working on him, just not enough for a TA-DA picture. :)

I did however, take pictures of my stash for next year, in their ziplocks and all. I know, I should be a professional photographer. (yeah I couldn't keep a straight face either.)

First up is Britty Kitty Stocking. I keep wanting to change the cat on the foot to a dog, since I have 2 cats and a dog, but I don't have a britty dog pattern in my stash that would go there. I'll survive, I guess. Anyway, this stocking will be done on 28 count Queen Anne's Lace with all the fibers and buttons it calls for. It'll be the first project of the year as it will be a SAL piece! I can't wait to get started. Needles ready!

Next up is Follow Me by Primitive Needle. It was the pattern I just HAD to have. I haven&#…


I have a friend named Megan who lives in Japan and she always sends such nice cards each year, this year I received a surprise! This is a little felt pouch, making me wonder what could be inside!

Yes I had already opened it lol. I couldn't wait to find my phone for pictures :D ANYWAY. I found this inside! /drumroll

Isn't it so cute? Going to be very fun to make!

I've always wanted to make her something, but because she's not actually from Japan (she's working there) I always figure that if she ever decides to go home, she doesn't really need something else to pack. I think that I'm going to do it anyway! I have a project in mind already! (and thankfully I have all the materials for it haha)

On the stitching front, I haven't really done anything. I feel like I'm waiting for the new year. I'm itching to start all my kitted up projects, but holding myself back til January lol. I keep opening up the drawer to admire all the kitted projects. I know, …
