Stitching update


Well I tried to organize these in order and didn't quite get them that way. I wanted to have them on the side so I could describe them, but.....
Anyway I started organizing stitching stash and things. I am trying to get UFOS together for a group I am a member of on yahoo. So I went into my bedroom where I keep my UFOS and my stash, and well I kind of wanted to post some of these and I didn't.; Please excuse the mess. I found patterns and UFOS everywhere. lol I mean that literally. As you can see from some of the pictures. I found some of my beads that I have stored in plastic containers, but thanks to Meari, I am going to go to Dollar Tree and find the pill cases that she used. Thanks Meari :)))) One of the pictures, please don't pass out. It is my closet and yes that is laundry. Our washing machines are broken in the building, and I couldn't get into my closet to get to the rest of my stash. I felt horrible after I saw that picture. I wanted to cry. bI have called the management here in apartment complex and they tell me that the company had to order new machines, that was a month ago. I have tried to go to parents house, but I have touch laundry for them lol. SO I am off to the laundry mat when i get paid. It really bites. Good thing is that Skylar's father is washing some of the clothes for me.
I am getting off topic here. Today I did organize some of my floss into the photo box that I have. That is finished. I am going to get another one next week to put rest of floss in it. I didn't realize how much floss I have. It is amazing.

New Toy for Me

I bought myself the Nook. I love it, I am still getting used to reading from it instead of a book. But I still have books that I need to read, but I really like this one. I can put it in my purse and take it with me. It is so cool. I am still learning to use it, but I really like it alot. Now my daughter Miranda wants one. I think that is great. I know she likes to read. So I think that is something I am going to get her for Christmas. She goes in her room and reads all day long, it is just cool.

Stitching progress

Kittens is looking good. As you can see from the picture. I backstitch as I go, and the kitten popped right out at me. I was so pleased with it. I stitched about 600 stitches today. I can't believe it lol. I wanted to stitch 1,000 but I know that isn't going to happen with the kids getting stir crazy. But I am rather please with my progress so far.


  1. Hopefully your washing machine issue gets resolved soon. I can't imagine having several kids and no washing machine.

    Good luck with your stash organization. Did you post a pic of your organized floss and I missed it? The bead storage idea works really well for me.

  2. Hi Jen, I'm a new follower. I also get ideas from Meari's blog. Your kittens project looks great! I have never tried to stitch that way with leaving threads in front. I still don't understand how it's done. My projects aren't that detailed though. Happy Stitching!

  3. Kittens looks good. Organizing takes a while, take you time and get it done the way you want.

  4. Stitching looks awesome! Congrats on getting the Nook. I have Kobo (another brand of digital readers) and love it!

  5. Love the Kittens!

  7. Thanks everyone for the wonderful cheering on. I still feel awful taking the picture and everyone seeing my dirty laundry. lol. I promise you it doesn't normally look like that. lol
