Another Awesome Giveaway!

There's another Giveaway being hosted by the Rhode Island Stitchers. Some really great floss, patterns, fabric, Bunny thread holders!, scissors and finishing fabric.

poor blog

I wonder if blogs feel lonely? Haven't updated in a while. I finished one of my February Crushes while on the trip home from FL. Unexpected trip down this week but things seem to be going well.

I pulled out some colors to start stitching bookmarks! I haven't started the Stitch for Literacy yet but I have things ready to go now and some books on CD and self contained books to listen too.

Also, I have to wash my rocket and get it in the mail ASAP!

I'm on a scrappy kick it seems

I wonder what will happen to my stitching now :p The funny thing is Pratchett tried to take off with the LO I did of him with the plastic bag!

Here's one I did for a 70's TV show title challenge, a hybrid challenge and a sketch challenge.
My friends and I went to the free 'donations appreciated' Shakespeare in the Park last September. I used some Wilderness paper I won from Colorbok and by the time I got all the pictures on there it looked to busy with anything else.

do you ever feel like a Plastic Bag

I was working on this page for Tally Scrapper's Baby You're a Firework Challenge. When I just couldn't get the elements moved around to my liking. So I went looking for a sketch and found Page Maps! This is a sketch for their Webster Pages Challenge. It even had clouds on it :)

Here's my Page. I wanted the first lyric 'Do you ever feel like a plastic bag?' Because I knew I had pictures of Pratchett in a plastic bag. I dug through the plastic bag and found one like he was in and Modge Podged it to some card stock. I used the letters from my Tim Holtz's Grunge Board to trace the letters. Then I cut out the rest for the background.

Tally Scraper Love Quilt Stitcher

I finished a LO for Tally Scrapper's Survivor Challenge.
I asked the ZQC to do an orange picspam so I could get hotness photos :) I wanted to use my vellum quote I'm kind of a big deal but I should have backed it on orange rather than hope alcohol ink would pop that much, or put it over the grunge board maybe but once it was stuck it wasn't coming up. The background paper is from color bok I needed a tree and some buttons so this pattern worked out well.

Then I stitched my name on the love quilt square going to Alexander Y. This will be the third square I've done. I just need to get it washed and sent out.

Fat Tuesday

Ok not really Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler over here but I finished another of my Mardi Gras themed stitching. I only didn't get the big mask done. Then I finished them into magnets. The Flur de Lis I did with my good magnet cartarage for my Xyron and the other 2 with the bad one thinking if I could peel off the laminate and just use the magnet it would be ok. Actually once I cut the Flur de Lis I was able to peal off the laminate just fine. Then I found out my mirror in the bathroom isn't magnetic :p I'm going to have to figure out something else to fix them on there with but I was able to put them on the fridge for a minute.

Well the Pittsburg Penguins are Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler because they just scored another goal! Whoo hoo.

Hrm maybe to put myself more in the mood I'll go up and get one of my feather boas and trail feathers all over the house ;)

Falling Behind

TUSAL report was last week and I just never took the memory card out of the reader until now!

Here's Jim he's really looking like a tribble all rolled up in there.
