Milly's Giveaway

I was neglectful of blog following and I almost missed Milly's Giveaway.  Go check it out for the most adorable bunny.  When you check the rest of the blog there's some pretty fabrics and patterns the bunny is bringing too.  My colors too!  A lavender, yellow and green color which is what I painted my new storage cubes (ok hubs helped and his look better than mine)  Also, love bunnies ;)  I have a nice bookshelf that could hold craft stuff that instead holds a plethora of Eeyores and bunnies.


 I've been working some overtime instead of blogging.   This first pic is my Dad's card that I quickly stitched for him and then sent out late.  Last years was early so this one makes up for that :p
 TUSAL for June.  I cracked the tribble maker but it's still good to go.  Plastic is the way to go people!
 Theme update, working on my dragon still, it's a bit of an animal.  I feel like a typewriter, I go across the top filling in the top square in the first row so I can try to roll down the piece and I keep going back and forth.  Oh and I found another spot I messed up on near where that big blob of blue is and it's part of the dragon face too. :p  I hope it turns out OK if I work around it, I'm not ripping anything out of this!
Close up of the corner where you can see I filled in.

I feel so bad, I haven't been paying attention to other blogs and the Traveling Pattern is with Kay.  It went with her to Italy and she's taken some fun pics of her trip and with the stitching, who ever thought the Traveling Pattern would actually get to Travel!

Milly, has posted that she has received the Olympic Relay Pattern.  No posts yet but she had some gorgeous needle rolls on her blog you should check out. :)  Today at work there was a TV near by and I got to see some of the Olympic Trials in diving and track.

Besides OT I've been trying to put together my craft room which looks like Dorothy Gale came through in her house.  I hope I don't get squashed with my feet sticking out from under the mess. 
How do you store your floss and patterns?  I would like ideas because throwing it all at the shelf won't help. :p  I have the floss sorted in baggies (mostly) and then in a large black bag that I have to dig through and then most of it doesn't end back in the baggies.

June WIPocalypse

Some progress in May I started an Olympic Relay Stitch that is now on it's way to Milly.

I also received the Traveling Pattern Thankful for Ewe from Geeky Heather.  You have until Thursday if you want to be the next person here's the link to the post.

I have a pattern that I want to stitch for the Olympics but I like Measi's Olympic Stitching too.  We'll have to see how crazy I am.

Along, with mailing off the Olympic Relay Stitch I mailed off my Love Quilt Square for Caitlyn Z.  I'm still working on the UFO for Cristobal.  People at work can now tell it's a UFO.
If you're participating in Jumaji June or thinking about it (Geeky Heather's Theme-a-licious) There's an any child theme for wild animals of Africa, South America and Southern Asia.
 I've been stitching on my Computer Dragon.  I moved it to the living room so I can stitch and watch TV.  I've been watching Stanley Cup Playoffs lately and Star Trek TOS.
 Look the corner is almost filled in!  I want to get the top row done so I can roll the bar up some and not have to roll back.

Ginger Snaps Scraps Give-away

Though stitching has taken over the blog I also scrap.  (It would help if I cleaned my dang room so I have space to scrap)  So trying to win some new stamps from Lawn Fawn to motivate me ;)  If you like to stamp or stitch cards and want a little extra oomph check out Ginger Snap Scraps.

Thankful Time to Travel

I had done a few of the letters last night and today I mostly just sat and stitched.  I stitched all morning and in the car on the way to meet my parents for lunch as they were driving back through town.  Even stopped by a quilt store to see if I could find a backing fabric.  Debating on if I should frame it or make something else out of it. Tomorrow I will have to clean something out in the dinning room to appease my husband. ;)   Had a tiny frog appear when I stitched the h a half stitch too far over but everything else seemed to go well and I had just enough Old Oak Tree.  Which was the only color that the chart called for that I had picked out even before the pattern had arrived.  I changed the color of the flower because my sheep loving friend is fond of blue. 

So far this pattern has traveled from Geeky Heather, Sharon (Daffy Cat), Mouse, Anne, Gracie, and it started with Tricia.

If you'd like to stitch this pattern, please leave a comment on this post saying you want to be the next person in the stitcherhood.  If you're chosen, you promise to stitch it right away and pass it on as soon as you can.  I will mostly likely draw on Thursday June 7th.  I took the day off from work because my anniversary was on the 5th and I wanted a long weekend.  I will probably sit and stitch my dragon pattern since my husband was getting low on days he could take and we're saving for something down the road.

Also, don't forget I have my own relay stitch that I will draw for on Sunday before I go to work.
