A Finish and Something New

Hello everyone,

A quick finish to show you today:

001

Picking the Poises freebie by Lori @ Notforgotten Farm. I finished it as a simple little ornament to hang on my tree. So Cute!!

Next is a new design I just listed in my etsy shop called Blue Heron Island:

004

The pattern is available if you want to take a look http://www.etsy.com/shop/stitchorizeit

This is my version of a blue heron sitting on a rocky island among trees surrounded by water. It is common to see these beautiful birds in a setting like this up in the 1000 Islands, New York. I finished this as a hanging decoration but it still fits nicely on my tree. I used a strip of the fabric I used for the back as the hanger. This is the back:

005

This is the perfect fabric for this piece don’t you think. I found it last year @ Joann’s

Have a great weekend everyone!

Accessories- Yeah!!

Hello all,

So I was at our cottage in the 1000 Islands recently and I always bring alot of projects with me. Some I get done and some I don’t but I did manage to make these:

006

I found these little tree trunk pieces at Joann’s. I stitched a small design for the front and put a magnet on the back. It can hold your needles, pins, or needle threader while you are stitching and when you are not stitching you have a sweet design to look at. A win win, right? I have other small designs in mind for these as well.

I also made some pins. There are hearts:

008

Butterflies and flowers:

003

I also made these pins with wool:

007

I think they look like Black Eyed Susans. These were an experiment so they need a little bit of work. I also was able to get some stitching in too so I hope to have some finishes to show you soon.

I have some projects lined up for my next trip so those will be posted next month when they are finished. Can’t wait!

I’ll be back Thursday to post a small finish and a new design.

Have a great day!

Let Freedom Ring and a Giveaway

Well, summer is in full swing here and I have been doing some patriotic stitching and finished this Lizzie Kate pattern:

010

I showed it in a previous post not finished and now it is finished. Yeah! Super sweet! The pattern uses a star and a bell charm but I used 2 stars instead. It also used gold beads throughout but I left those off.

So since I have been in a patriotic mood I decided to have a patriotic giveaway. Yeah! You’ll get the Let Freedom Ring pattern with the threads and a few other goodies.

013

All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me what one of your favorite patriotic designs you stitched was.

This giveaway is open to anyone so please tell your friends to come on over and leave a comment. I will take comments until July 6. All of your names will then go in a bowl and I will have Madison draw the winner and announce it on July 7. Good luck everyone!

~Maureen~

P.S. Hi this is Madison and I will be the drawer of the winner of this giveaway. Good Luck everyone :)

Finishes and Fun

Hi my friends,

Just a few things I wanted to share today. Who remembers the LHN Walk in the Park I was making for my sister? Well, I did frame it per her request and here it is:

002

Since my frame did not fit exactly, I decided to put rick rack and buttons on the side to decorate it a little. I like how it turned out and it will be a nice remembrance of Ally.

I also finished up My Dearest Dad just in time for Father’s Day. I am giving it to my Dad. If you remember I did Dearest Mom last month. I finished them the same way.

009

We have been a little busy this month with Madison’s dance recital and end of school things. I wanted to share a picture in her sassy dance costume.

004

She does Hip Hop and their song was Too Much from the movie Zapped. I had never heard of it until then so if you haven’t don’t feel bad. They did really well and the show was excellent.

It was Moving Up Day last Friday.

013

She is holding her favorite class pet, Rosie. My little Madison is officially a middle schooler. It is a new and exciting chapter in her life and we are so proud of her and all she has accomplished so far. I hope they are ready for her!

Have a great week everyone!

A Little Patriotic and a New Design

Hello all,

How is everyone today?I can’t believe it is June already. Only 3 more weeks left of school! Yeah!

I have a few patriotic finishes. Well one is finished and one is not but I am going to show you anyway.

First is a freebie from Samplers and Santas:

001

I love this sweet little design. I finished as a little pillow to display with my other patriotic designs.

Next is Let Freedom Ring by Lizzie Kate:

001

Unfortunately, I have not finished this one yet but I wanted to show you. I can’t wait to finish it. This was such a fun stitch!

The pattern called for a star charm in the flag and a bell charm on it. I added 2 stars instead because I like stars better in patriotic designs.

Lastly, I would like to share a new design called The Island Lighthouse:

003

This pattern is the first I’ve listed in my Etsy shop that is centered around the 1000 Islands in upstate New York which is my most favorite place. I am very excited about it so when you get a chance please check it out. Here is the link http://www.etsy.com/shop/stitchorizeit

Thanks!

Have a great weekend and happy stitching!

Gifties

Hi all,

I just wanted to show the precious Mother’s day gifts I received from my precious daughter.

002

The little dish I am going to use for small stitchy things. Isn’t is so cute! I framed the paper which I am going to hang in my stitching room so I can admire it everyday. It says “10 reasons I love my Mom” and it is all typed and decorated. She did such a great job. Handmade gifts are my favorite!

I finished stitching A Walk in the Park by LHN for my sister. She had to put her little yorkie, Ally, down a few months ago. So I stitched this for her in memory of Ally:

004

I gave it to her on Mother’s Day and told her it was an “I Love You” gift. She started tearing before she even opened it. She requested I frame it so that is next on my to do list. I am glad I could make her day and she will always have Ally in her heart.

Have a great day everyone!

New Design and Some Finishes

Hello all,

Just wanted to share my newest  design just listed in my etsy shop called USA:

006

I finished it as a pincushion but it could be whatever you want it to be. Imagination is a wonderful thing! I also listed some small rick rack trim. My shop is at http://www.etsy.com/stitchorizeit/shop if you would like to take a look.

I have a couple of random finishes as well today:

001

This ornament was the third one in the freebies from Niky’s Creations from my last ornament post. I love this design!

003

This Easter design I had started last year and finished it this year although still not in time for Easter. At least it is ready for next year. it is from on of those cross stitch doodles. It just has the pattern and then you pick the fabric and colors. I think it turned out pretty cute.

That’s all for today ladies! Hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mothers out there.
