SFS2015

Hi everyone!

This has been a busy month! I have decided to go participate in Stitch from Stash again this year and hope to finish some of the many projects I have kitted up ready and waiting for some attention. Let's get the details out of the way first:

Month: January
Spent: $6.50
Finished $8.00

On to a great start!

I can't remember, but I think I may have mentioned that my oldest daughter was expecting. This month he decided to show up weighing in at 6lbs 12oz and 20 inches long he is such a cutie!! I wasn't able to be there when he was born (we live in different states). I have made plans to go and spend a week in March. I can't wait!!

Momma and baby doing great!!

So to do something crafty for her {cause that's how we roll ;-) } I started making the centerpiece for a quilt (from a Precious Moments Alphabet booklet) that will include his birth details and in other areas of the quilt, a mini family tree. My goal is to have the completed baby quilt done before I go to see her and the baby.


My first finish of 2015. This is called Stitcher's Brew by Little River on a piece of 28ct Jobelan Odyssey by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie. I saw this fabric on her sight last year during a sale and knew that this pattern purchased the month before would look great on it. Of course, when I kitted this I didn't realize that Needle necessities was a thread brand so I changed it to DMC 920 and WDW Daylily to give the effect I was looking for. Of course the bat buttons are missing but that can always be added later if I really want to but I like the way it turned out. I purchased the pattern on a whim last June and finally got around to working on it.


This has been my bring to work piece, but I have put it aside for the moment until I can finish the birth record for my grandson. I hope to have this finished next month. :) 


I am so sorry that I have not posted much. Work has been a bear with year end and the new boss. I spend so much time on the computer at work that I don't want to go home and deal with a slow connection at home. So instead I stitch or take a night off and read. On top of stitching from stash more this year I want to make posting and catching up on everyone a higher priority.

Ta Ta for now,
