My First Jellyroll

I know this is technically a stitching blog - But I find that quilting and stitching go so very well together!!!
I've  seen so many bloggers that stitch squares to make so many beautiful Quilts.
I must say that my interest has been peaked.  I am developing a great desire to own just one fabulous Quilt.  I know that I can learn the skills to do this & I am eagerly wanting to try.
I have been making Hexagon Flowers - And I certainly have enjoyed this endeavor:
But I also want to learn other styles of quilting
I entered a giveaway at Sew We Quilt @ Stash Manicure and to my surprise I actually won a jellyroll: 
 With some other goodies:
And an adorable card was included:
 I am so overjoyed with this gift !!!
I will be having fun next week attempting to make making a jellyroll quilt.
Thank you so much Madame Samm - for the generosity (and for the inspirational projects on your blog) 
Have a Great Weekend !!!!

Can you keep a Secret?

I've been working on a baby shower gift so I have put all of my other stitching aside -

 I found the pattern for this adorable little turtle on the blog called 
There is a free tutorial available if you follow the link !!

I filled this little jar with treats 
And the Baby Bottles with M&M's: 
The tissue holders came from a free tutorial from

I used charts in the magazine below to make the jar topper:
And to stitch the babies name on a burp cloth:
(I changed the pattern a little to accommodate the colors and style I needed.)
This magazine contains many mini charts and ideas for baby gifts - 
And a few larger charts as well -
I think it was a fabulous find !!!

The Shower is Friday so keep it Quiet -
Have a great weekend

Pond Visitor

 The frog in my pond had babies -

So now I have a bunch of these:
Every time  anyone approaches the pond they scatter in all directions
And I have several fish:
Kiss Kiss
Here's another 15 Challenge Finish :
Number 11:
 It is stitched over 1 on 28 count fabric -
It is a rather large design and I am going to use it for a Christmas Ornament.
I am thinking about tea dying the fabric darker & spraying glitter over the design .

Have a great weekend

Back from break

I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July !!! 
I made a trip or two to the beach while on break:
In between the beach & trips to the Destin Outlet Mall
I was able to finish all of the painting on the walls in my house (hunter green /white ) & painted my kitchen cabinets white -everything looks so nice !!!
My wonderful husband bought me a new stitching chair, although I must say I did not accomplish any stitching.
It is so big & comfortable - Just perfect.
I  finished my first weekend back to work 

I am attempting to do some blog reading . I am looking forward to catching up with you all!

Have a great day !!!!
