Balloon Glow is Chart of the Week

Dimensions Cross Stitch Balloon GlowThis morning while I was getting the kids off to school I caught part of a news snippet as I rushed through the living room; something about FAA regulations that say hot air balloons can’t be within 500 feet of a cloud.

I walked around with these silly visions in my head of men teetering around with tall ladders trying to chase down hot air balloons so they can measure their distance from the clouds. I’m sure I must have missed part of that news story while I was helping Ethan find his socks, but the part I heard sounded so silly that it stuck with me all morning. Anyway, that’s what led me to look for hot air balloon designs this morning.

This is Balloon Glow, [Read more…]

Love Coffee from Mill Hill is Chart of the Week

Love-Coffee-Cross-StitchMill Hill’s newest cross stitch kits have been super cute. I know I said that about their last round of releases, and the round before that, but they have really been rocking things in the department of cute and easy to finish projects.

When I saw Love Coffee, I sort of instantly fell in love with it.

Ask any member of my family and they will all tell you that it’s best not to talk to me before I’ve had at least one cup of coffee in the morning. Sometimes I’ll have tea, but usually it’s coffee. My boys (currently ages 12, 13, 14, and 15) all know how to measure and brew a perfect pot of coffee. I’m not sure if that makes me the best mom by preparing them with a life skill or the worst mom because they consider it a necessary survival skill -LOL-

Complete Cross Stitch Kit Includes: Beads, charms, perforated paper, needles, floss, chart, and instructions. [Read more…]

Birthday Blessings is Chart of the Week

Birthday-Blessings-by-LizzieKateTomorrow is my youngest son’s 12th birthday, so instead of focusing on Valentine’s Day cross stitch designs this week I’ve been looking at birthday designs. Aside from birth samplers the selection is limited. But I found this super cute Lizzie-Kate design called Birthday Blessings.

Now I’m off to go shopping for birthday cake supplies to make the triple-chocolate cake he requested I make…. hopefully I can get some stitching done while the cake is in the oven later tonight.

Happy Stitching (and happy birthday too!)

Fjord Ponies is Chart of the Week

Fjord-Ponies-Cross-Stitch-SamplerSampler style and horses…
Could a design be any more awesome than that?

I’m pretty sure the correct answer is no, a design could not possibly be any more awesome. I just fell in love with this sampler this morning. And yes, I bought it even though I just bought a new sampler to work on at the beginning of January and I didn’t even start that one yet.

The model for Fjord Ponies by Ink Circles is stitched on 32 count Vintage Sugar Maple by Lakeside Linens using Vikki Clayton HDF color floss

I love the little splashes of color and the hearts worked into the quaker blocks, very fun 🙂
