A Creative Mess….

A creative mess is better than tidy idleness.

I agree entirely. Not only is it better, it’s practically required that you create some sort of mess to reach the end result of creativity. Sometimes that mess is physical, sometimes that mess is just part of the process in your mind.

What’s the biggest mess you’ve made in your creative work?

Any Day Spent Stitching is a Good Day

Any Day Spent Stitching is a Good Day

Finally the last week of school here! The boys will be done with school by the end of the week and then it’s summer vacation, late nights watching silly movies and sleeping in, video games and days filled with blowing bubbles and digging in the dirt. :)

Have you done any Charity Stitching?

Thanks to our friend Loretta, I found WOCS. World Of Charity Stitching. They have a Yahoo group, and they want to make all kinds of nifty things for people in long term care…

This is the blog  link:   http://worldofcharitystitching.blogspot.ca/

I signed up for the Brushstroke Butterfly Quilt they had on, which happens to be a pattern designed by Loretta, and I have included my version of it below. They are a kind group of people who take your cross stitched squares and sew them into quilts, walker bags, or just finish them into bookmarks. I signed up and had to be finished in about a month, but I did it and mailed it about 10 days late. They accepted it graciously and I hope to do more for them in the future. Rachel in AZ (and the other lovely ladies) is always supportive and puts a tremendous amount of work in. I’m going to add this to the StitchbyRachel Pinterest Boards too…
