Another Finish!

Hello Fellow Stitchers and Friends!!! :~)

I have finished the Letter C ATC and I think it turned out really cute! :~) I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do. I have to admit though, that this pattern was not as easy as it looks. The Xs were fine but the backstitching on the pattern was very hard to read in a lot of spots, so I hope I didn't miss any.

Well here it is!


I love Eeyore so I knew that is the one I wanted to do for this theme. Although I must admit that Tigger is my favorite from the Winnie the Pooh & Friends bunch. :~)

My next two ATC themes are the letter N and FIFA either soccer or tennis. I have chosen soccer. And the letter N that I chose and have already started I think is a unique N and really cute. :~) I want to get these both done as quickly as I can bcuz I will be going out of town on Tuesday afternoon to Texas to visit family. And I know that most of the time that we will be there, there won't be much time for stitching.

That's all for now. Looking forward to posting more ATC's really soon!

Happy Stitching Everyone!

Until Next Time,

ATC Theme Letter C Received

Hello Stitching Friends ~

I just wanted to share with you the ATC that I have received so far. It's the one for the theme the letter C.


I think it's pretty. I'm looking forward to receiving the oriental theme ATC. Can't wait to see what the other person came up with for a pattern for that.

Until Next Time,

A New Finish!

Hiya Friends!

Hope you are all doing really well. I am doing pretty good. Both stitching and sewing have been very slow in happening, as my glasses have disappeared and have yet to reappear for about a month now. It's very frustrating. Without my glasses, my options are my prescription sunglasses, and of course even with my stitching light, stitching with sunglasses is not easy. The other option is my old pair of contacts. And although they are better for seeing than my sunglasses, there's a reason why I choose to no longer wear them. My eyes tend to dry out really bad with them, especially now with our ceiling fan going 24/7 bcuz of the heat. But I was able to get this piece finished, an ATC, a little bit at a time. And I am really happy with out it turned out!

The theme for this one was oriental. I had the hardest time finding a pattern for this theme. And after going through several of my stitching pattern books, I finally came across this one. And I loved it from the moment I saw it! I hope the recipient loves it just as much!

Here it is ...


The Kanji symbol means beauty. And I just love the kimono.

The next theme I'm working on is the letter C. It's nearly finished. Just have a bit more backstitching to do. Then I'll start on the next 2 themes, which are the letter N and FIFA, either soccer or tennis. The FIFA one, I'm not sure if I'm going to go with soccer or tennis. I found a cute tennis pattern. And the only one I've really found for soccer is just a plain old soccer ball. And I'm not sure I want to do just a plain old soccer ball. But we shall see.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Happy Stitching!

Until Next Time,
