My Very First HAED!

I started my very first HAED a couple of days ago.  It's called Catching The Breeze.

There are 90 colors in the design!

Here's my little start

This design has 45 pages to it!  I'm pretty sure that I've lost my mind. 

 and I are starting our first stitch-a-long tomorrow and Linda will be starting on Tuesday. Here's the picture again of what we are stitching.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Happy Stitching!!

Look What I Won!!!

It's Mr. Mittens!!!  Isn't he just the most adorable snowman you have ever seen?  I watched as Debbie stitched him up and was so excited to find out that she was going to give him away once she finished him.  I couldn't believe that I was the lucky winner!!  Thank you so much Debbie I just love this little guy!

Of course I couldn't wait to start stitching him so here is my small start.

Have a great Sunday everyone and Happy Stitching!

Tall Pines Is Finished!

I put the final stitches in Tall Pines last night. 

Little House Needleworks

This was the chart that I won from Lesli at fabulousfrogger

 back in March.  This is the first LHN chart I have stitched and I can tell you it won't be my last!  I really enjoyed every stitch and I can't wait to get it framed.  Thanks again Lesli!!

I aslo wanted to thank you all for your kind comments on my craft room.  It has taken me a couple of years to get it the way it is today and I still consider it a work in progress.

Have a great weekend everyone and happy stitching!

A Tour of My Craft Room

Chelle from The Next Best Stitch and Life On The Domestic Front asked to see my craft room so I thought I would share it here.  The room is small and I have it crammed packed so my husband has nicknamed it "The Crap Room".  He thinks he's funny.

First stop are my shelves that hold my WIP's floss with each project kitted up in plastic boxes. 

Most of the boxes hold two projects.  I think I may have mentioned that I have a lot of WIP's.

I don't know why this picture turned sideways.  Anyways, each container is labeled with which projects it contains.

The shelves also hold my fabric for finishing, along with ribbons and paint for painting unfinished frames.

Heading around the room I have my drawers that hold my extra floss.  I have shared this on my blog once before, but in case you missed it, here it is again.

These are seven separate units.  On the table to the right in the bids are my WIP's each in their own plastic baggie.

They are labeled and put in the containers alphabetically.

This container holds all of needles, buttons and extra beads.

And lastly, this container holds all of the projects I want to do.  I know, I know, like I really need to start something else!

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Happy Stitching!
