Deals Galore...and some stitching!

After my great deal on two Bothy Threads patterns I figured that was it for me for awhile. Nope! My local Joann Fabrics is moving. They have some great deals. I picked up an Ottlite caddy for 20 bucks. They normally sell for 80!

 It's so pretty! Well at least mine will be when it's out of the box.

I made some good progress on my Bothy Threads. We had some strong storms come through last night. My dog is terrified of storms. She has a thunder jacket and gets a dose of benadryl to calm her down. So I was up late stitching while she panicked.

Finished more cream and gold background. Think I'll work on the cat next to add more color!

I took a break from the shed to work on a newer start. I realized I have never worked on anything Halloween themed! I picked up this kit awhile ago and thought why not. The bright colors will be nice after all the cream!

 I am loving my chart clip I found at Hobby Lobby. Makes it easier for charts I haven't been able to copy or color the areas differently.

Here are some updated pics of my furbabies.

 Bear was mad at me and pouting!
 Poor  Rylee baby. So worn out by all the storms.

 My silent watcher Pippin. Okay, not so silent. He has asthma and wheezes and snores!

That's all for this time. I'll end with a question. Those of you with furbabies...How do you keep the hair off your projects?! Or remove it from them? I swear no matter how careful I am all I see is cat hair!


  1. Great stitching. Love your new start. It can be incredibly difficult to keep projects clean, I try to store them in a zip up bag when not stitching and I keep a mini sticky lint remover close at hand to give my projects a once over to get rid of any hair every so often.

  2. WOW! Amazing stitching!

  3. I use the same Ott Lite Craft Caddy every single day! I love the pics of all your furbabies!
