Its Tuesday and the winner is CISCA

Thank you everyone for your comments it was fun reading them and I am glad you liked the rock with the heart on it. I really tried to wash it of to make sure it wasn't painted or something man made. It is so never coming off. :)No budging, dried the same way.
It is Tuesday so I did a drawing for the free chart and the winner is Cisca. I am waiting for her to get me the mailing address and off it will go!!.
Still stitching little Christmas stitch an inches and crocheting. I really will share soon.
Love donna

Spreading Some LOVE

I just had to share with you a photo of our rock collection. My husband and I go to the beach about 3 to 4 times a week and take a stroll. It is our quiet time to talk to God, just relax a little and think about what is really important in life. (Soul searching journeys). So as we stroll along the beach we always keep an eye out for sea glass and rocks that are shaped like "Hearts".  I say a quiet prayer and ask for signs. These are the rocks that we have collected and the larger ones are in the flower garden outside. 

 But yesterday morning my husband asked for a sign, and as we were walking I found what I thought was a rock that someone maybe painted or stenciled a heart on it. So I made my way to that little find, picked up that rock and guess what?? It is the rock itself. NO paint, No stencil, just formed by nature, so I am sharing the photo with you because it is so cool and I cant stop thinking about it. Just what we both needed and a little lift for the day. Hope you enjoyed it.

Pic of Stitch An Inch Christmas AND A GIVEAWAY :)

Here is the cover of the chart. I am still stitching them up to hang on a Feather(Wool) tree that I am making to share with you. And don't forget that in the Nov 1st newsletter I will have directions on how to finish an ornament with wool and a free tiny chart for stitching. The charts will be available from distributors at the end of next week for shops - except for the shops that have automatic accounts and they should receive them by Tuesday or Wednesday. I will be updating Etsy too by Sunday night. AND of course I will have more to share because I am having so much fun crocheting.
OH YES !!!! PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT FOR A GIVEAWAY OF THIS CHART. I WILL DRAW A NAME ON TUESDAY :)))))

Todays Peek

I am having fun stitching these they go so quick. I will share photos of some of my crocheting too. But I have to get a new card for my camera. I have almost 2000 photos on that 1 card and I have to wait for it to load on the computer every time I want to add a photo.  I really need to pick one up soon and just put this card away in a safe place. But yes I love to crochet again , that is my night time thing to do. I cant see to well to cross stitch even with the lights so I stopped struggling and save that for day time.
More tomorrow

What I did today :)



It is so beautiful today, and I finished designing "Stitch An Inch Christmas 2011". There are 10 tiny designs that can be tiny one inch treasures or they can be two inch Ornaments. I went to Yankee Cross Stitch this morning to drop off more things for her sale so I took a picture to share. I also have fallen in love with crocheting again and have added a little bit of it to one of my Funky Flowers. You can see it on the table in the photo. I made a ruffle and used the same DMC floss on the edges as I used in the flower. I also made the ruffle for the candle stick with the pumpkin pin cushions. It was so much fun, I love trying new things and adding embellishments.
I am going to sit on my porch and do some stitching so that I can share it tomorrow.
Have a good night
donna - OH YES!! "Bailey" says HI!!  (Shes on one of my book shelves and I think she looks grumpy! Must be naptime)

Only a few kits left

The white pumpkin on top of the block is in the kit and this picture is to show you more ideas of what to do with your little pumpkins. Glue them on top of a candle stick, add some ruffle or even change the color of your wool. You can also make them larger for displays or smaller for ornaments.

Good evening every one this is a quick post to tell you that I have approx 6 kits left for the "White Pumpkin Pin Cushions". I will be working on more kits for Christmas and also a class for Yankee Cross Stitch of a white dragonfly with wool and cream colored flowers for the holidays and into winter. I cant wait to work on it and I will share some photos too. Feeling blah today and what a headache, so I am going to bed early and I will talk more tomorrow. Thank you to everyone that has ordered from Etsy, your orders will go out tomorrow, there was no mail service today :(
