My stitching buddy - -


I thought you might like to see who's beside me every stitch of the way - - this is our little sweetie and she's always sure to be my "stitching shadow". I don't think I've put many stitches into a piece at all but where she's cuddled up as close as can be. She's a Japanese Chin and I just can't say enough good things about this sweet little breed. Now, if I could only get her to chase away those darn frogs - what stitchers call mistakes - (we have to rip-it, rip-it - get it??) :) , she'd just be perfect!
Oh - and you'd NEVER guess her name!!! :) I'm not making this up - her name is "Tea-Tsu". Knowing me, you just knew I'd have to sneak in the "tea" somewhere, right??? :) :) :) (and no, I'm not "tea"sing about her name - that's what it really is!!!! (sorry, couldn't help it!!) :)
Thanks for letting me share a moment of your day with you. I love the comments so very much -

Two more treasures - - -





These are more "already stitched" items that we have in our home. The "sons" piece is a Lizzie Kate design. I changed a few of the colors a wee bit to better suit my liking and once again, my "honey of a hubby" did the framing. This piece lives in our family room. I just love the sentiment on this piece!! My not-so-little fellow gives the best hugs in the world and is truly God's gift to me.

Now, lest you thought you could get away from my blog without a mention of tea, no such luck, my friends!!! :) :) :) I just love needlerolls...this basket holds my "most favorites". (The tea part? If you look in front, there's a tea for two design!) lol The apple basket was a gift from my Mom...after many failed attempts to "make off" with hers, she bought me one of my own!! (persistance pays off!) :)

I wish you each a lovely week-end!!

We Love Tea...


Yes, we do!!! I loved the process of stitching this piece...the colors are a perfect match for our kitchen/eat-in area. This hangs on the wall right above our table where we eat most of our meals. Hubby framed this one - I love the little circles he cut and the little teapots that he chose to put into those circles. (Click on the photo to pick up the details). I think the framing really helps this piece come to life. I just love that this is a "hobby" that hubby and I enjoy creating together! :) Hope you enjoy the picture -thanks so much for all the lovely comments - they just make my day!!

Have some tea for me, (sweet and iced, please - I'm in the south, ya know!!) :)
