First before I talk about my stitchery check out the flock of birds that were hanging out at my house this morning!
My kids complained that I keep making cute wood crafts for others and not our self so these are some Spooky letters I made to put on to of our piano
These Turkeys are what everyone seems to want right now at my Etsy shop. I made two more today. I just don’t think there are enough cute Thanksgiving decorations these days.
Here are a couple of Halloween stitcherys that I have made also that I think are fun.
My kids love this one! They always ask when we are going to put this decoration up because they love the saying
Here is another fun Witch boot I made I added glitter to it to add some sparkle I like this one a lot! can’t decide if I want to part with it or not.
My baby just turned 3
I can’t believe how fast time is flying! There are so many projects that I intended on doing when she was a baby and just did not ever do!
My sister in law is expecting a baby in October and had her baby shower a week ago. In deciding what to do for a gift I remembered that I had onesies in my craft room that I never did anything with.
I really liked the ruffle butt idea I saw here. So here is what I came up with. I wish I had a baby to display it on, but I think you can get the idea
I finished this stitchery a few days ago, but I have not had much of a chance to get on the computer these days so this morning I finally sat down to do it. Anyway here it is I have a picture of it just plain and one after I colored it in with crayon. I can’t decide which way I like it better.

I am a huge fan of the “Taste of Home” and Quick Cooking Magazines! I used to have a subscription, but the magazines would stack up so I stopped getting them. With the idea that I would buy the cookbook that would come out at the end of the year with all of the years recipes. But I never did end up doing that. A couple of weeks ago I went to our local Library with my kids and while browsing I discovered that there was a whole section with cook books. I decided to check out some that caught my eye (most of them were Taste of Home). I have been going through them picking out recipes that sound good to me and trying them out.
What a great way to find recipes without having to buy the book! I don’t know about you, but I usually have several favorite recipes in my recipe books and then there are a ton that I don’t care much for and then all those books take up space in my cupboard. I wish I had thought of it sooner! I have been slowly copying down ones I know will be good and favorites that I have tried out on my family Everything so far has been a hit with them!
On a different note!
I have been getting back into doing stitchery lately. I have not done it in several months because I have been too busy. but I got to teach a stitchery class to the 12 and 13 year old girls at my church. I wanted something with a Beehive and flowers and a good quote. I could not find anything I quite liked so I compiled several ideas from different patterns and made it my own!
here is what I have done so far.
I will reveal the finished product soon
Also I will update you on how my gardening is going soon
This is one of three stitichery designs that I designed last January, but never was able to stitch it because of a demanding baby. Luckily I was able to stitch this one a few days ago. I know it is still wrinkled and has a wet spot in the middle because I was trying to smooth out the wrinkles by spraying it with water before I took the picture., I wish that I could show it completed. I mean the stitchery is completed, but I can’t decide if I should frame it, make it into a pillow etc. and I was afraid that Valentines day would be past before I decided so I thought that I better just post it in case I did not get to it.
This is my Thanksgiving stitchery design that I came up with last year. I really think Thankgiving does not get enough recognition!
What I love about stitchery is if you can draw it you can usually stitch it.
Anyway I have a cute rustic square frame that I want to switch out my different seasonal Stitcheries.
