Knitting for the homeless!

God has really blessed me in health, career and the love of a family. It’s time to give back to those who are less fortunate. My goal is to knit 10 hats by thanksgiving for the homeless. A friend who services the homeless has asked for assistance in providing warm hats and gloves for those in need. I started the first hat on Monday and I am finished and on my second hat. I’m off to a good start. My Daughter Lauren has agreed to help me.

Chatelaine designs, Stitching

My first Chatelaine Design!

I wanted to know what all the fuss was about Chatelaine designs. So, I bought one and then another. As with most of us, we buy patterns and tuck them away in a drawer and never stitch them. Well, this design is quite expensive and I have promised myself that I will complete them both and not buy another unless I so. This is my progress from this weekend. There will be Lots of specialty stitches, beads and sparkle. Off to a good start!!


Beads and Metallics!

I’m really enjoying working on this beautiful Spring Sampler by Laura Perin! There isn’t much time left in the day after working 8-10 hours a day. However, I took the time today to work on this fun design with lots of bling. Also, I was able to get a close up of the details in the design to give you a better view.  What are you working on today?


Finished Object!!

I’m so happy to get this project completed! There are certain projects that are not fun at all and this is one of them. However, I love the finished product and I can’t wait to finish it and hang it on my office door. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and had time for a little stitching!
