Embroidery stitching

Years ago that's all I did, stitch. I stitched everything. Pillows. Quilt applique. The works!
I have not stitched in years and forgot about all the cute little sites for free patterns. Do you do embroidery/hand work?  I'd love to see your blog/work if you do!
HERE is a great site I used to enjoy.

And here's a cute witchy pattern for October! Sweet site!

You're next! share your embroidery finds! :)
I might just start up this sweet hobby again. Loved it in the past. So relaxing.


3 days

3 more days and then I fly out to see my son at his basic combat training graduation. What a long 10 weeks it's been. But I'm so proud of him and glad he could have this experience. The drill sergeants told his unit the other day that after training is all over (after the next part-the job training) all soldiers will most likely be deployed. Lord, give me strength. He was excited to hear this and this is what he wants. But for a mother, well, you know...not as excited about that part :(

While I'm on the subject of fabric...

Let's have another great giveaway!

While cruising for fabrics this week on Etsy I came across this fabulous site!

Now at first I thought I stumbled on a standard Etsy shop. I was VERY wrong about that.  This gal sells very unique fabric, as well as Ipad and Kindle sleeves, printables, pinback buttons, the list goes on!  Not only does she sell lots of fun goodies, she designs all her own stuff! How awesome is that!

The thing I love BEST about her Etsy shop is the "geek-iness" of it all. I mean, let's get true here for a minute...most fabric shops cater to quilters making baby quilts and stuff they can sell.  Well Elishka's Robyriker Designs Etsy shop is way different. Check out this awesome geometry fabric:

or how about this Atomic Orbits fabric:

I can imagine making wonderful TEEN quilts with these precious fabrics. Or how about that young adult in your life who is a super geek?  ha!

Well, let's get to the nuts and bolts of why you're reading this post...
