Stitchy things

So, I have been working on several projects at once. I don't know if I like doing it. I may cut it down to two projects when these ones are done - they take longer to complete. Here are some pictures of my progress - please forgive the wrinkles!!
This is The Charming House of Lindy Mouse I have the house part done - starting on the roof.

Noel by Renato Parolin it's 4 pieces - I have one done and almost have the border on the second one.
Pinwheels in my garden by Kansas Troubles you can see the braid I am quilting and circles in the ends. I stitched around the light colored triangles - I love stitching with that golden threads quilting paper!!
Last is the Orchard Valley Quilting Bee by Little House Needleworks
In a thrift store we found this tray...
5 bucks

and put Song of the Seasons (Little House Needleworks) in it
I just got Harvest Keeper in the mail today - I also got 2 pieces of Confederate Grey 40 ct to stitch 2 of them and some of the threads. I think I want to finish them on boxes - I think it will be adorable. Have to wait until I finish the current projects!!
 Yarnspirations is having a "Mystery Adventure Scarf Crochet or Knit Along" doesn't cost anything - unless you want to order the yarn from them. Looks like fun - I might just give it a try!! I signed up for their newsletters and I love getting them in my mail - they have some fun free patterns!! I will be making apple dishcloths on our next road trip! Marly from Santa's and Samplers mentioned some antique festivals we might have to drive out and see or maybe the Yankee Peddler in Ohio!
 I mentioned earlier that my daughter has an etsy store selling knitted dishcloths - KitzyKnits. I think she will knit anything you want knitted you just have to contact her.. Also, if you tried to buy some and thought the shipping was too high - try again. It's her first shop and she is learning! I got the dishcloths I ordered from her - love them!
My mom opened a shop in Castle Rock Colorado she has healing teas, herbs, bath teas and oils, lotions and creams . It's called DiviniTeas. If you need some of her voodoo that she doo so well hee hee- email me and I will give you her number. She is also an intuitive palm reader. I made these tags for her to use. Cute huh!

bottle cap for size!
Hope you are having lovely weather and lots of stitching time!!


  1. You have an entire family of creative people!! I am amazed at all the projects you have going on at one time. I wouldn't know which way to turn. The tray is wonderful!

  2. Ooooo, all great projects!
    Can't wait to see the Lindy Mouse House done.
    The quilt is gorgeous, and love the tray, it fits perfectly.
    Talented family that you have.

  3. They are both right - that tray looks fabulous

    Love you - Me
