Christmas Challenge Segment 5

You might ask what I am doing up at 2:33am on Christmas morning and I would say something like, "Well I had to bake." Which is the truth up until 1:00am.  After that, I HAD to finish the latest little snowman.

Four done and six more to do.  Now I can go to bed knowing the fourth guy is done, some baking was done and kitchen is prepped for the larger cooking later today.  

I am hoping that everyone who reads this tiny bit of a blog has a wonderful day regardless of how you go about it and if you can, get some stitching in!

Until next time.....

  2. Didn't get any stitching stuff but I did give 2 of my projects to their new owners. Well.....gave 1, heard from the other.

    Beaded pineapple was hung up as soon as it was received with great appreciation. My 'Aunt' told my Mom that I am "very good at this" and she and my 'Uncle' were both in awe & LOVED it!

    The 2nd (beach towel) was give to my mother-in-law. She loved it as well. My father-in-law thought I bought it at a store at first. When he found out I did it he was asking questions. Since he makes things (woodworking mostly) as a hobby he was appreciative of the time put into it.

    All in all it was a good Christmas and I love the newest addition to your snowmen group

    1. How lovely!! OF COURSE your pineapple was appreciated, it was BEAUTIFUL, and the towel...that made me laugh people are always amazed when they find out that the fine stitching done was done by you :D Now that you are over the shock of having your father in law interrogate you about stitching, isn't it nice to know that a fellow crafter is right there to share your love of crafting with?

  4. Hi Carla. :D I couldn't reply to your question via email since you didn't have an email account to your blogger, so I thought I'd reply to you here.

    Regarding the specialty stitches on Chatelaines, I don't practice them. Martina charts then out really nicely, and it's just going from there and stitching them. Sometimes, I'd have to adjust my tension according to what the specialty stitches call for, but things like that, you learn as you go along.

    Are you thinking of starting a Chatelaine??? :D They are such a joy to stitch. Feel free to email me anytime... joyszeroo at gmail dot com if you need any help or just wanna chat. I'll try and reply sooner rather than later. ;)

    Hugs.

    1. THANK YOU!!! my email is Akazaus@gmail.com . I am considering a Chatelaines and once I took a look at the website and then at your finishes pieces I felt very strongly about doing them. I am currently undecided about just getting the pattern or going the extra mile for the kits which seem to be the way to go if one were to just do the pattern as suggested :D

      What is amusing to me is that I was feeling pretty great about my stitching until I saw you were doing these and I felt very humbled Oh Master. A friend of mine shared a cartoon where an artist was trying their hardest to be as good as the person they thought was the master and when she caught up with the so called master he told her to turn around and LO! There was another artist trying to keep up with her. That same day I received a note telling me I was what they hoped to be.

      A lovely circle don't you agree? I love that you have created IHSW, and if you are so inclined please join us in January for our IHSW Hangout where we video chat while we stitch :D
