New Project That I Will Start 01/19!

Yes that's right! I am going to be starting a new project on January 19th! Well around that date. I am going to be SAL with one of my online stitching friends. We are both going to stitch the same pattern & keep each other motivated and everything. This will be my first HAED pattern that I will be stitching. I am so excited! I have my Q-Snap floor frame all ready with the 18 count aida on it already. I bought all the floss & have it ready to go. Pattern is printed. YAY! Just have to wait for my friend to get her supplies. She lives in Canada the closest Michaels is kind of far from her home. So she will be going there the weekend of the 17th & she will be home by the 19th & that is when we'll start!!! Here are some pictures of the pattern that we will be doing, the stack of papers which is the printed pattern, me with my floor frame & the aida on it, and all 90 colors of floss for the pattern!

Heaven and Earth Designs Wicca

Here is the pattern all printed out ... all 30 pages of it!

Here I am with my Q-Snap floor frame which also has the tilt kit.

And here are all 90 colors of floss, including the Kreinik #4 braid floss. There are 2 colors that only have 1 single stitch in the entire pattern. And a few others that have 12 stitches or less in the entire pattern. Crazy! LOL.

I am really looking forward to stitching this. I would love to start now, since the friend that I will be SAL with stitches SOOOOOOOO fast!!! But I promised her that I would wait for her to get her supplies before I start. I will be sure to post my progress once we start working on it!!!

Until Next Time,

Happy 2009!!!

Hello Everyone!!!

I just want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! I hope all of your New year's wishes come true!!! I can't believe 2008 is already over. Seems like we just celebrated a new year not too long ago.

So what plans do you have for yourself in 2009? As for me, well my goals are as follows ...

1 ~ build up an inventory for my business so that I can sell items on either Etsy or Artfire.
2 ~ Get lots more stitching & sewing projects both started & finished, both for others as well as some for myself
3 ~ create my "shop" on Etsy or Artfire & begin selling
4 ~ shed a few pounds & get more active
5 ~ as always to be the best wife & Mom that I can be

Plans for next year include a trip to visit my Nana in Oregon whom my daughter & I haven't seen since 2003 and my husband & son have never met. Also my Mom & I are going to Northern California to pick up my baby brother & he will be moving in with my husband & my kids & I in September.

Again, I hope that all of you have an excellent 2009!!!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
