Ha ha! I don't really know what to call this bag! I found a pattern at a shop, and it was for a computer bag. Unfortunately, the pattern was rather poorly written, and the directions were really hard to follow. I first thought it was me just not following it,... Continue reading

These vinyl project bags have been so much fun to do! I have really admired them when I have seen them, but have been a little scared to sew using vinyl. There are some great tutorials online to help you. I found the one at Fat Quarter Shop on Youtube... Continue reading

I love the colors in this Reward of Merit pinkeep by Blackbird Designs. Pink is my favorite color, and I loved the green that was used in the stem of the flower. I decided to showcase the green in my fabric choice for finishing, and I am so pleased that... Continue reading

Here is my next Reward of Merit pincushion! I am not sure what the linen is, but I don't think that it is what is called for in the pattern. When I kitted these projects, I ordered them from a shop and said that I was looking to have all... Continue reading

Blackbird Designs is one of my absolute favorite cross-stitch designers. There is a series called the Reward of Merit. They are all small pincushions. I actually have all of them (I think) kitted and ready to go, with finishing fabric, trim, linen, and the called for threads. I've had them... Continue reading

This was a lovely little stitch by Priscilla's Pocket! I am a cat-lover, so whenever I saw this and how small and cute it was, I knew that I had to have it. This was a little kit that came with the fabric, and was stitched using the called for... Continue reading

I really loved this project! Using strips of wool, cut to have fringe, the "fringe" is wrapped around the shape, in this case, a heart, while using fabric glue so that it will stick. For the small heart in the center, I used a blanket stitch for the outside, and... Continue reading

I wanted to share some goodies I received in the mail today. I can't wait to sit with a cup of tea and my Inspirations magazine. I would suggest this magazine to anyone who loves to stitch! I also have signed up for a "pin" club that arrives even month.... Continue reading

February is National Embroidery Month! I am excited for this because it is a chance for me to challenge myself with something I've been wanting to try: a stitching journal. I found out about these on Pinterest, and just absolutely fell in love with them. It will be a great... Continue reading

This was another Lizzie Kate kit that came out last year. I love the colors in this, and think that they can go with spring, summer, or autumn! Continue reading

I decided to take some charm packs I had and just sew them together into a little lap quilt. I have done this before, and really liked the results. I am not at all a quilter, but I really love seeing all the different colors and prints in a charm... Continue reading

This is a project that has taken up a lot of my patience. I just loved the design when I saw it in a shop. It had been finished and framed, and just looked so lovely framed. I wasn't sure why I was having so much trouble. I think it... Continue reading

I really adore Lizzie Kate designs. This was a kit that came with everything to finish it. I loved the design, and Easter is one of my favorite holidays. The only thing that I did differently was to use a brown thread to attach the lace and the buttons. I... Continue reading

This was a kit, and I will be honest I can't remember where it came from! I think that it was a freebie from a class I took some where. If anyone knows, let me know! I tucked up the top and bottom to give it a little different shape.... Continue reading

This is my fist time stitching on 40 count fabric over one thread, and it is small! Can you find the mistake???? Ugh- it actually made me laugh. A way to get more practice! Continue reading

Here is my completed small stitch for February. It is by Shepherd's Bush. This my first time stitching a pattern by this designer. It was perfect for a small stitch. As I was taking pictures for this, I was trying to think if I would like to gift this and... Continue reading

I love Valentine's Day- it is my favorite day! Ever since I was a little girl, I have liked handing out Valentines. I have a few Valentine's Day stitching in my stash. I have finished stitching one of these two nights ago, and am now working on the finishing! I... Continue reading

Recently, I attended a workshop for my job that was in New York City. I was worried that perhaps I wouldn't be able to make it back to Penn Station for the train ride home (about a three hour ride), so I had a long wait between the time the... Continue reading

This is a Lizzie Kate stitch that I recently had framed. I am almost finished with all of the months, so I hope to remember to post a picture the beginning of the month of the ones that are finished and framed. :) I like the first of the month,... Continue reading

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I tried to respond individually, but I don't think that I am able. I wish that the butterfly was my own stumpwork, but it is actually a button I found at a flea market! You are right, I don't think that I will use it! Maybe hang it some where? I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to! Kindly, ~Jaime Lyn
Here is my small for the first month! I finished it into a tiny scissors fob, with a braid I made using the leftover floss. One side is my first initial (it is a little hard to see!) I really enjoyed stitching this, and love the colors for this wintery... Continue reading

There has been a blizzard here that started last night, and lasted until this afternoon, and it is still snowing! Today was a snow day, and I have another tomorrow! One of my challenges for this year is to work on a crazy quilt, so I decided to get everything... Continue reading
