Some News

It has been 2 months since my last post. Haven't been crafting too much lately since I started my new job. However, I have two annoucements.


A few months ago I stitched a design by Vivian Bales and designed/made buttons for it. The design is called Seaside Memories and is now on sale at Country Cottage
The chart is free with the purchase of the button pack.
Here is a pic:

I have been working on an afghan for my daughter since last year. I put it down for the summer but just finished it tonight. This is a diagonal design and you can find the pattern here:

Here are the pics of Gina's afghan.....the first is the full pic, it is about the size of a twin bed. The second is a close up of the stitches. It was done with Red Heart Blueberry acrylic yarn.

I really need to get back to stitching. I have a model to stitch for Oakhaven designs but haven't had much time or energy to stitch.

Nice to see you posting again. Gina's afghan is beautiful-the colors are so rich.
And congrats on the button pack-I knew you'd be making them to sell someday! I still have the one you gave me (Uncle Sam), and I'll definitely do something patriotic with him.
Good luck with your job.
