I've seen it on blogland and even more so in the past few months.
Now I really must go... baby is awake and needs to eat!

The other 3 designs in this pattern are very cute as well.
I've printed the pattern sheet on Sticky Fabri-Solvy, it was easy
to stitch with. Another not so glamorous shots... oh well!
I already rinsed it and washed it...
I'm still battling this cold/flu thankfully fever is down and I'm not shivering anymore.
Fall brings beautiful weather to spend it inside sick sipping soup.
Enjoy your week!

Isn't September national sewing
month? I believe it is.
It so happens that last month
released a hand embroidery
pattern set called:
I got my copy few weeks ago
and may be stitching one of the
many designs in the pattern set soon...
Stay tune :-).

August was a very busy and challenging month indeed!

I pre-ordered Little Stitches by Aneela Hoey,
from my book club and it arrived yesterday!
Want a tiny peek?
Thought so! ;-)
The book contains complete instructions and diagrams for embroidery stitches (plus suggestions and ideas on how to use them) and for the twelve projects using some of the hand embroidery patterns in the book. I already have a few favorites and by the way, you could trace or iron-on the super cute embroidery patterns... neat ha!?!
Above you can see the detachable iron on sheet of embroidery patterns that comes folded on the back of the book. I also love that the embroidery keys for the projects are given in the form of charts!
Aneela talks a bit about her book on her blog Comfortstitching on this post, where she is showcasing her super cute new fabric
line: Sew Stitchy for Moda.
PS: (I hope to be able to catch up with blogs and emails over the weekend)

Though I mentioned that may not be able to blog until the end of the month I'm too excited and despite being already tucked in for the night
I needed to share:
Betsy's Closet In Stitches SAL
(link above to SAL blog)
(picture above links to designer blog post)
I must first finish the tummy time quilt for my wee one and then start this one... it is for oldest dd, for being such a great big sister.
It will be a surprise!
I'm still waiting for my pattern to arrive but already have my fabrics and threads ready :-D, all from my stash.
At first I was thinking in using Cosmo floss but then when I saw that Jenny was using her Finca perle cotton #16
I remembered that I had some on my stash in #8, only that the green I have doesn't go very well with my fabrics so may need to get a better match.
I'm very excited about this quilt! It is small and so cute! I'm thinking that by the end of this month or by September I should be able to start working on it.
Are you working on an exciting project at the moment?
Ok time to close my eyes and catch
PS (I'm slowly starting to work on this as well.)

It took me almost an hour to complete, the size definitely helped since

Today I took advantage of the nicer weather, me feeling good and took the girls (and myself) for an outing.
We walked the outside area of the mall, stopped for a bit at the book store, met some friends for lunch and on our way back did a quick errand.
Even though I was badly tempted
with these pictured crafty goodies I was good and passed on them....
how-e-verrrrr, I can't get that Tilda one out of my head. I'm just curious about it since the format is different, hmmm, we'll see.
Maybe I just give in only this time (specially since is $$$) on the Tilda one to check it out and see for myself what's all about ;-).
Ooohhh, what will you do?
PS #1 (I'm hoping to catch up with your blogs by next weekend... thanks for stopping by!)
PS #2 (still without pc but found some applications that make posting from phone easier)
