A New Stitchin' Light

I haven't been able to stitch for the last couple of weeks because my stitchin' lamp decided that it no longer wanted to turn on. The hubs fiddled with it for an hour and still no light, he wants to replace the switch to see if that works.

So, the Hubs told me "let loose on the internet" and check out OttLites.  I found Jo-Ann's was having a sale on all OttLite's and bulbs at the time, so after perusing their site for a while and comparing to OttLites own site (they were having a sale also) I ordered a new light and bulbs for less than the retail cost of the light alone. Plus I received free shipping with an online coupon, and I live in a sales tax free state.

Here is my brand new OttLite !!

Love the tray. The rectangle compartment next to the pincushion is magnetic. I've already started thinking of a design to stitch to cover the ugly gray/brown pincushion.
Not one, not two, not three, but four replacement bulbs. 
The hubs tends to err on the side of caution (more is better) when getting bulbs for specialty lighting.

I wanted to get the pattern holder attachment, but alas Jo-Ann's didn't seem to have it, so maybe at a later date.

Thank you for stopping by.

TUSAL for June

I'm so sorry I'm late this month, but at least it's still June. 
I told myself more than once this weekend that I had to get this done, but got too busy with yard work, house work and designing a piece to stitch for our camp trailer and just forgot.

So without further ado, here is my TUSAL for June.

A few more threads added this month, but not a lot since I only stitched on "Nose Art".

Well, that's it for the month of June.

2014 Smalls SAL

It's that time again. Time for my 2014 Smalls SAL update.
I stitched another little something that I designed.

It's all about my four legged fur babies this month, and I will hang this in my front door window, since it is sooooo very appropriate.

"Nose Art"
Designed by Me. 
Stitched on 28 count linen using DMC threads.
Those are supposed to be dog nose prints, the black for my "Monster" (German Shepard) and the ginger for my little "Jack" (Brittany Spaniel).

 Cody aka Monster

 Jack aka Ebenezer (don't know why, but he loves that name)

That's it for today, I haven't gotten much stitchin' done this month, but I have been doing loads of designing. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts behind, I appreciate each and every one of them.

Fourth of July Freebie

Thought I'd post up a a little gifty for Fourth of July stitchin'.

"Fourth of July Heart"

Choose your favorite fabric and Red, White & Blue threads and start stitchin'. 
It's only 38 x 38 or 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches on 14/28 count fabric, so should be quick to stitch.

That's it for today everyone, thanks for stopping by.

2014 Smalls SAL and 2014 TUSAL updates

Wow, another month has come to pass and it's time for both my 2014 Smalls SAL update and my 2014 TUSAL (Totally Useless Sitich-A-Long) update. Both can be found on my sidebar if your interested.

So, first up is the 2014 Smalls SAL. I had two pieces that I stitched up.

"Right Amount of Crazy"
I found this saying while I was poking around on Pinterest one day.
"My goal is to be just the right amount of Crazy to make everyone else doubt their Sanity"

Stitched it on 28 count cream Evenweave using DMC threads.

"Happy Mother's Day"

This is the Mother's Day gift I posted here on my blog.
Stitched on 28 count evenweave using DMC threads.

Next up is the 2014 TUSAL

I had to squish down the threads a bit, but at least there are more in the ORT jar.

Well that's it for today stitcher's.  Thank you all for stopping by and leaving your thoughts behind, I appreciate each and every one of them.

A Father's Day Design

I lost my father back in 1990 so I won't be stitching this one myself, but there are still a lot of great father's out there that this design could be stitched for. 

If you do happen to stitch this design or any of the other designs I have posted I would love to see a picture of the stitched piece.

"Happy Father's Day"

That's it for today, I hope you enjoy the new design.
