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!

I really like the new simple design layout! In case any one is wondering about the photo header...that is a picture I took in Italy a few years ago, its a gorgeous view of the Vatican City from atop the Castel San'Angelo, it is one of my most favorite photos!! We have a trip planned there for this fall, can't wait to take in more of Italy's beauty.
Well.....happened to check out Brooke;s Books Alphabet SAL blog...and saw this...the preview of the Q block...LOVE IT!! So....now I just have to join in, albeit almost 9 months late...of course I realize I could just make that one block...but I wouldn't want it to be lonely...so I'm undertaking the whole thing...now I couldn't find any tea-dyed Monaco at Michael's and Joann's and of course there is no LNS well...local...so I tea dyed some Aida I had on hand (glad to be using up the last of this ginormous piece)! So A for Aran here I come!

Paper Sundaes #25 Challenge
Thought I'd give this challenge a try, Paper Sundae's #25 challenge is White Plus One....A predominantly white card, with one added color....this should be fun!! Fred She Said is hosting this challenge, check out Paper Sundae's blog for all the details, and what you could win from Fred She Said.
So..Ive been playing all weekend with my new sizzix, and finally using the cricut I bought...the kitchen island looks like the tazmanaian devil just came through...its a perfect day to get some crafting done, the weather is ugly...it's raining cats and dogs right now!!
So on to the challenge....I cut the white cs to a 4 1/2 square, embossed it with the swiss dots folder, cut various circles and flowers with both the sizzix and cricut from white, and parrot green cs...layered them, did a little paper piercing, used white gel pen for the stitching, and then added the green gem, and little hello tag...this one is going to a dear friend who needs a little pick me up this week...hope you'll give this one try, it was fun and not as easy as I first thought!!
