Sore Fingers

The title of this post says it all. I stitched my fingers off this weekend! It was so nice to just sit around the house Saturday getting laundry done and stitching. I had declared that I wasn't going to have any plans of Saturday and my boyfriend obliged. We had a movie marathon day! Started with Mighty Ducks and D2, What Dreams May Come with a little bit of Red Dwarf to change things up. After going out for ice cream at the fab Union Dairy we finished the night with Night at the Museum. I managed to get 4 loads of laundry done and most of it is put away. Thats a new record being as how laundry rates up there with getting dental work done. On to stitching...

I pulled out an old WIP and started working on it for a change of pace. I started this birth announcement back in 2009 when my then best friend was pregnant. Well life got in the way as it usually does and the baby was born before I finished it. And then I had a terrible falling out with my friend. So it sat and sat until I was cleaning my closet the other day.

I had Pooh, the hunny pot, half of the checked bottom and the star stitched when I put it away. This last week I did some back stitching, and finished the bottom. I set this aside yesterday to stitch a bib for my boss. She sent a message out that she is a new grandma! I was sitting at the shop and thought this was the perfect excuse to work on a stamped bib that I had been eying for weeks!

I just love the way these look! It has been quite some time since I've worked with stamped cross stitch and my poor fingers are taking the brunt of it. I finally got a system down so I didn't stab myself!

2 colors done...3ish to go. I'm hoping to have this finished by the end of the week...I'll update later if I manage to finish.

As always I'll leave you with animal pics!

Bear deciding on if he is going to pounce the bug or not.

I should have taken a picture Saturday but Pippin was lying on my phone. All three cats were sleeping on the bed with Rylee in the middle. All 4 had tongues sticking out! It was so stinkin cute but Pippin had horrible gas and about 3 minutes later everyone had left the bedroom to seek fresher air.

Have a good week everyone!


  1. Beautiful stitching. Love the two bibs they look so adorable.

    1. Thanks! I wanted to stitch on these for weeks and thought this was a great excuse.

  2. Bear looks like he is ready to get into lots of mischief! So cute!

    Your stitching is beautiful too. xx

    1. Thanks! Yes he gets into things quite often. He is the most vocal of my cats and I swear most days he is telling me off for not going outside more.

  3. Oh, love Winnie the Pooh - and the bibs are darling!!!
