Hodgepodge

Found some frames for a couple of my finished stitches - at the moment I just have them sitting in the frames - when I stop buying stash I will buy some acid free mounting board and mount them properly - lol!
 
 
Next up is called Artic Cuties from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine - I thought I had a finish on this one however my son found out his sister will be getting more artic cuties because her name is longer - so after his fit of crying at the unfairness of it all, I'm trying to squeeze in one more on the end for him - sometimes children can be so hard to please.


I am back working on my Blessings and Kind Wishes by Blackbird Designs, and by the way, I did iron!  I really love R&R Reproductions fabric but boy they sure do come with a lot of wrinkles!

 
I feel a real bad case of startitis coming on - I hope I can resist!
 
I really should go and clean the house now - sigh - I really wish I was one of those people that can ignore the mess and blissfully stitch - oh well I better go and do what I gotta do so I can get back to what's really important - Stitching!
 
Hugs & Stitches,
Amanda

  11. Cough, cough, choke...did you say "stop buying stash?!?" Never! ;-)

    Love those little cuties!

    I'm one of those that are in the "startitis isn't a bad thing" camp. Who's it gonna hurt if you start something, as long as you have the realization that finishes are a long way off? Starting new stuff is fun. :D

  12. It's great that you found square frames for your pieces. You're such a good mommy to stitch another Arctic Cutie since your son's name is shorter.

  13. I love your framed finishes. Whenever I stitch for my daughters, they compare what they get for how big or how cute it is.

  20. Women make up a large percentage of the workforce employed
    by various horse racing industries and women are playing a vital role in fighting the abuses in the so-called
    "Sport of Kings. There are two types of hospitality available: 1 - Royal Ascot - Platinum Suite in The Imperial Courtyard 2 - Royal Ascot - Carriages Restaurant Hospitality. Trainers will often race their horse to get them to "tighten up" This just means that the trainer want to see if his horse is ready for his next big race. If you have an election related issue you'd like to see explored, please let me know. Horse racing has always been the sport of affluence and opulence. To become a powerful racer one should be a powerful spectator, who observes the all the aspects of the horse racing.
