We are home

We are home from NH. We had a great trip. I think the kids enjoyed the pool more than Santa's Village. They all made a lot of progress with their swimming skills.

She is a bit nervous about the merry go round.

Quaker 2008

This is such a nice chart to stitch. It works up fast and turns out so nice. Free chart can be found here
We are going on vacation tomorrow to Santa's Village in NH. My parents, my brother, sister-in-law, their 3 kids and my 7yo and I are going. My husband couldn't get off work to go. I hope the weather is nice. d

Progress pics

Lots of stash

Ocean State Job Lots had a clearance sale on charts. They were marked down to 3/$1.00! I bought 9 of them. Too bad there just isn't enough time in the day to do them all right now!

Rose Sampler Part 7 complete

I love this but what is up with the "a" that looks like a "u"? I looked on the EMS board and others are doing as per the chart, but it bugs me. I may have to change it before its all said and done.

EMS Rose Sampler SAL

I haven't started the newest part 7 yet. I really enjoy working on this piece, but have been busy with other things lately. I hope to work on it this weekend.

I was inspired by the Glory Bee freebie, but wanted to make it my own. I think it turned out pretty cute. This is only the 2nd pinkeep I've made and it's still far from perfect, but I'm learning.



Another freebie. This one is from here. Isn't it adorable. She has lots of other Quaker animals available too. I plan to do more soon.


Rose Garden Biscournu

Isn't this a lovely design? It is a design from I just love it and can't wait for her other items in the Rose Garden theme. Thanks for sharing the chart with me.


I finally decided to set up my own cross stitching blog. I read a lot of others, so it is time to have my own. Welcome.
