TUSAL for July

Alas, I have no photo to share of my O.R.T. Jar.
I have done zero stitching since the last update and the only threads I will be adding this weekend will be from sewing buttons back on the Big Guys work shirts. I swear he's come home every day this week missing a button or two. 

I keep telling him to stop doing the male strip show for the women in the front office. 
He does not see any humor in my little joke AT ALL, but the look he gives me, that is a mixture of major annoyance and slight anger, has me falling off the the couch laughing my but off. Of course he always give me a "That's Just Wrong" before going to change out of the shirt.

Another Gift From Me To You

I thought I would post up the chart for "Nose Art" in honor of all our four legged fur bearers.
I changed it up a bit by taking away the over one noses. You could change out "dog's" for "cat's" if your not a dog person or "pet's" if you have both, it would be very easy to do.

Hope y'all enjoy it !!!

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.
