Goodnight Sun, Goodnight Moon

Goodnight scissors. I finally attached my LHN Needle and Thread piece to the bed. Now, of course, I wasn't going to buy this premade bed, I was going to make my own. I even bought some fat quarters to make it with. But then, in June, I went to Jan's and she had the bed in her ONS room and since I have no will power I had to buy it.

A couple of weeks ago I stitched up the new Homespun Elegance freebie and finished into a door hanger. I love the backing fabric I found.

I finally bought some crushed walnut shells (lizard litter) for stuffing and dug into my "need to finish" box to find something to try it out. Came up with Four Seasons by The Trilogy, that I had stitched several years ago, and finished it as a pin pillow.

This week is going to be finishing week. I have all 7 grandkids' ornaments and a few others to do the finishing on. Wish me luck!
Have a great week and happy stitching!

Star Wars

A few weeks ago, I asked my second youngest grandson, Daniel, what he wanted for his birthday on Sept. 29. His reply surprised me. He wanted me to take him to the mall to the Build-a-Bear store and the Lego store. So last Sunday off we went and this is what we came home with. First of all meet Darth Panda(his mask is off for the picture).

Then after a pretzel at Aunt Annie's shop we were off to the Lego store where we found a StarWars Lego kit that he loved and a little Star Wars guy on a key chain.

I've been stitching some smalls and reading about ways to finish them in many wonderful blogs. After emailing Faye, who finishes such great smalls, I decided to get some crushed walnut shells to use instead of fiber fill or doll pellets. So off I headed to my local Pet Smart and told the young guy working there that I wanted some crushed walnut shells that were used for lizard or bird litter and he led me straight to the ----bird seed and that was the last I saw of him. I finally found the lizard litter and didn't realize there were so many to choose from, but finally found what I wanted.

This week I've been stitching on Raise the Roofs Libertyville and have almost finished part one.

Have a great weekend and happy stitching!
