Thanks, Dani! Yes, the backstitch is just ridiculous, but I'm plowing through it! I only have 2 letters to go, then I can go back and do the smyrna stitches that go around each block.
Thanks, Amy!
Oh, Susan. The backstitch is KILLER. But, it's turning out so pretty, it's hard to get mad about all the detail work. I will say that it'll be a LONG TIME before I decide to use this book again!!! This winter really has been the worst. I definitely concur - I just curled up under blankets and hid, hoping it'd get warm soon. This weekend is supposed to be nice, though, so hopefully warm weather really is coming soon!!
I find that even though I want to be outside more now that the weather seems to finally be getting warmer (although Tuesday there was a wind chill of 28 degrees. i cried a little.), I also have had more of a desire to stitch than I did over this... Continue reading

Beth, I can imagine it's simply gorgeous in red! I haven't seen it finished - my LNS doesn't have a model of it - but I can only imagine how beautiful it is! Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to keep everyone updated on my progress!

I have quite a few cross stitch WIPs going on right now...and one very important one, which is a baby gift for one of my good friends from high school. Now that her son is already a year old, I guess I should, you know, finish stitching it. Ahem. I... Continue reading

It's been quite the winter, my friends. All this snow and cold has been exhausting. I've defintely been effected by the season, and am very anxiously awaiting much warmer weather. Because I've been effected by the weather so much this year, I neglected those things I love most: stitching, scrapping,... Continue reading

Everything looks so delicious. I will definitely have to check out the one in NYC next time I'm up there. And a Nutella stand???? The literal buckets of it on the counter?? I die.

Love this entire collection! But, if I had to pick just one thing, it would be the brush script word thickers. I'm determined to try brush script this year to add variety to my pages. Love it all! Thank you for this giveaway opportunity!
Yikes!! We had thunderstorms and tornado watches yesterday, too! This weather is just insane. Today, it was 55 & sunny all day...which won't last, since I hear snow is in the forecast for Tuesday/Wednesday. I may cry. Hope you have a great weekend!!

Same, here! We had a lot melt yesterday, but there's still white stuff hanging in there. The fog was crazy yesterday! I think I saw a snowflake on my weather app for Tuesday, which does not make me happy. But, today's high is 53, and I'll take whatever I can get for now! I'm desperately looking forward to the flowers and colors of spring and summer!!

It was so nice to warm up for a few days! I'm with you, Sue! I almost cancelled my flight home and stayed there permanently!

I can't do it anymore. I just can't. This winter has been absolutely brutal. The amount of snow and bitter cold has me at my breaking point. I don't know how the people in the MidWest are surviving - they have just piles upon piles of snow on the ground.... Continue reading

Very interesting! Thank you! I had no idea. I'm not usually in University City - when I go downtown, I go to Center City or Old City - so I'll have to check out Penn's campus someday while I'm down there! And Bryn Mawr one day, too!

This past weekend, the temps were actually above freezing, so I decided to take a little drive up to Princeton. Across from the campus, they have a nice outdoor shopping area, so, for a change of scenery (especially since I've hardly been out of the house this winter because of... Continue reading

Thanks, Courtney! I'm in love with the frame for that very same reason! The distressed look is so perfect for this piece. You're so sweet to want to buy one of these from me!
Thanks, Amy! Awesome!! I can't wait to see how yours turns out!!
Well, our buddy, Phil, out in Punxsutawney, PA predicted six more weeks of winter yesterday, and I'm not happy about it. We've had plenty of snow already, thankyouverymuch, so I'm done. I'm ready for spring. Oh, but funny thing. Today's another day with snow in the forecast. A winter storm... Continue reading

Hello friends! We're bracing for yet another arctic blast here in the northeast, which I am NOT happy about. It's bringing a snowstorm with it today, and I'm quite frankly just over it. Yeah, I know. It's only January. But still. Over it. I hate winter. I'm 33 going on... Continue reading

LOVE this collection, Kelly! I can't wait to get my hands on it!! Stupid question: is CHA open to the general public, or just shop owners and people from the industry? I would love to be able to attend one of these events and see the demos that are given.
Hi, Kelly! I love your blog the way it is, which seems to be the general consensus. Maybe it's the haphazard way of your posts that bothers you? Maybe if you had set days when you'd post about certain topics - such as, Tuesdays are for Travel-related posts (which I love - I get to live vicariously through you, as I'm writing down all the cool places to visit), Wednesdays are for your PL updates/scrapping shots, Mondays are product, etc. it would flow better in your mind? I'm a PL newbie this year (I signed up for Ali Edwards' One Little Word class this year, and I'm already freaking out that my project won't turn out how I envision it, and it's only 9 January...), so I love seeing how you do your PL layouts. I'm gathering all kinds of insipiration from all over the web for inspiration. But, honestly, as long as you continue to post from the heart, it will flow just as it should. I always worry that my own blog posts don't really convey what I want them to, which is something I'd like to work on this year as well. Love your blog. Love your products at SSS. Love it all!
