Happy Tuesday

Good Afternoon everyone.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, Passover or weekend.  My 2 oldest sons have to try to raise money for Football so they did that on Saturday.  Other than that, it was pretty low key.

Now on to the good stuff.  A few weeks ago Cathryn over at Cathryn's Place Blog here had a giveaway and I was fortunate to win this chart by Lizzie Kate called Fall Y'all.  Cathryn is the designer for Blueladie Designs and she also has a wonderful message board here.

I can't wait to dye some fabric so I can start this.  I love fall and autumn.  Thanks again Cathryn for hosting the giveaway.

I have a 2 FFO's to show you.  These finishes are several years old so I am not sure of all the information, but I will try.  Please excuse the bottom of these finishes; I still need to hand sew them closed.

1st finish is an oldie from San Man Originals Design.  I found some plain green fabric for the back and it matches the color of the frog.

2nd finish was a free design from a Facebook group but not sure which one. This was done about 2 years ago.


Sorry the pictures are so dark but it is cloudy today and I don't get much sun in my house.

Here is an update on my WIPS:

Here is Cirque des Circle.  Gosh, is it hard to work on black.  I told my family that I can't do it anymore.  I am sure for small projects I will make an exception, just not right now.


I also pulled out this UFO and put it in my rotation.  It is called Butterfly and Roses by Marie Barber and was in the May/June 2012 JCS mag.

I also have a new start by Ink Circles called Cirque des Triangle.  It is on 32 dyed fabric by me and Carries Creation floss called Highland Hills.  Much prettier in person.


Thanks for looking at my blog. I'll be back on Friday 4/21/17 for Theme-Tas-Stitch check-in.

  1. Congratulations on your win. Your CdC looks amazing on the black fabric but I can see why you chose the paler fabric for Triangles!
