Little finishes

Well, i stitched a little biscournu for myself from a freebie pattern from a french site "Aurelle". I think it turned out really cute, it is only 2" squared. the pic just doesn't do it justice, the button is in a little deeper in the middle than it looks. And, again, i really do love those poly pellets to fill them. I also finished tonight, my 4th of July Fair & Squares i rec'd from Carolyn F. I made a little bean bag out of them. I just added it to my collection of decorations for the holiday. I used the biscournu finishing technique just perfectly square and it turned out great (again, poly pellets). I also have a square i finished for Ayden T. for COle's quilts (very late, but finally got it done).

I do have my F&S #7 sent out but they haven't been rec'd yet so can't post those pics yet.

I think that is about all for tonight.

Happy Monday!

Well, it wasn't a very productive weekend for me, i had a migraine all weekend. But i managed to finally shake it. So I don't have much to show finish wise for this past weekend. I do have my Fair & Squares from the 4th of July exchange to show since i know my partner has rec'd them. I also have a couple other things i have finished but haven't taken a pic yet, maybe tomorrow.

A Giveaway

Hi all! I recently won a giveaway on the 123 stitch message board and it was a very LARGE giveaway. Lots of goodies that i will use and lots that i know i won't use. So i thought i would have a giveaway for 2 people (I want to split it up and share with a couple stitchers).

Here is a pic of the goodies up for the giveaway and it will be split into 2 envelopes. All you have to do is post a comment to this post, if you do not have a blog, please leave an email in the comment.

I will draw a winner on Wednesday this week.

WIP's & UFO's Oh My!

Okay, as promised here are my pics of my WIP's/UFO's. I knew i had alot but taking a picture of them just made it worse! This is really embarrassing and i feel like i need this to get motivated to get these pieces done. The only new projects i will start now are for exchanges/RR's ONLY. When i finish a piece then i can start a new one, but am going to try to get a couple done before i do that. And i know there are probably a couple in this group that i probably just don't feel like doing anymore and i need to make a decision on those ones as well.

ALso, here is a pic of the biscournu i finished last night. It is the squares i rec'd from Pam from the Fair & Square exchange. I finally sat down and finished it into the biscournu and i think it turned out really great.

Wow, It's June already....

I am still here just haven't had much to say. Well it is getting hot here in AZ and the kids are already getting bored with summer. There's nothing to dooooo....let's go here, let's go there. AHHHHH! Actually it hasn't been too bad so far, but that is what i will be hearing real soon I am sure of it. Doug and I will be heading out to Laughlin NV on Thursday through SUnday (next weekend the 12th) with a couple of our friends. That will be alot of fun and hopefully profitable (but highly unlikely). LOL

We (Doug & I) also have less than a month before we both turn the big "40". We are going to be having a party, a 40/40 party (since our birthday is the same day/year, I am 8hours older) but not sure where or when yet. Plans are in the works (friends of ours are helping with the planning so i really don't know what is going on).

Well, i have been stitching alot and have some finishes but can't show a few of them because they are for exchanges that haven't been rec'd yet. But here is one that i stitched for a RR and then 2 fair & square exchanges i just rec'd in the last couple days.

This is Nancy's RR.

These are the squares i received from Darla for the Fair & Square Round 7. I love them but am not sure what i am going to do with them yet (like all the other squares i have so far) LOL

Here is the package and squares i received from Carolyn f. for the 4th of July fair & square exchange. She really spoiled me with all the goodies she included and the wonderful squares.

As for other stitching, well, i just started last night working on Halloween Fairy by Mirabilia and am cruising along pretty good on it. I am in the process of making a biscournu for MYSELF out of the first fair & square exchange i rec'd, will show pics when i finish it.Also working on wip's/ufo's really trying to get some work done on them. Since Ruth showed a pic of her wip's/ufo's on her blog i feel inspired to do so as well, hoping it will nudge me in the butt to get moving on them before starting anymore projects. ROFLMAO! But i will take a pic hopefully this weekend and post it here and will hang my head in shame when i do, it may take more than a couple pics. OY!

well, i need to go stitch some and relax before heading off for bed.
