First Finish of 2013!! first finish, and probably another new addiction....I have been pouring over pictures of wool penny rugs, and have been wanting to dive right in, but...after seeing the prices of the glorious cuts of wool...I thought to myself..self, you better try using some less expensive materials first and make sure you like naturally I bought lots of acrylic cuts, and then a dear friend gave me a HUGE bag full she had in her stash, so it was only fitting she receive the first project made...I also discovered that my die cutter will come in handy... LOVE it!! it cut the stuff like butta!!

2013 Stitcholutions....

Well...I dusted the cobwebs off the old blog, and am ready to get this stitching year started...last night I finished stitching "Scatter Hearts" from Shepherd's Bush...(I have a very blank shelf above my desk at work that just begs to be decorated, so I decided to start with Valentines Day....Pictures to follow of the finish... At any rate on to the stitcholutions... Cross Stitch: Ive wanted to do a SAL for Christmas Ornaments, so I joined one...hoping to churn out at least 12 ornies this year. Quilting: I belong to an awesome circle, The Real Housewives of Heild Rd. My goals are to make each monthly get together, use at least one to two fabrics from my stash each month, and learn at least one new quilty thing each month.. Penny Rugs: I've fallen hard for these beauties..and have amassed a decent collection of wool and patterns already, goal number 3 is to use said collection to create some neat candle mats, ornies etc for Christmas 2013... Goal 4...actually post pix of the finished products! Whew...this is shaping up to be quite an undertaking!
