March IHSW

Quite a bit happened during IHSW.  There was this idea that I would clean up a bit.  So I did.


While I was cleaning up I came across the Welcome sign I was making.  Now that it was unburied I went to work on it almost immediately.


I had found this pattern "Malcolm Tucker Sweary Xstitch Pattern" on Craftsy for a whole dollar, so I bought it.  The original pattern has a seriously funny saying on it, but try as I might it just seemed odd to try and cross stitch swear words.  Like blasphemy to cross stitch.  Please don't get me wrong, I find some stitched pieces with swear words hilarious, but really cannot bring myself to stitch it. Soooooooo, I went Frankenstein.  Oh yes.

Everything on this pattern had to be adjusted, but it's a cute little pattern made cuter by adding the little butterfly and flower, beads and bullion stitches.  The butterfly and flower patterns were little freebie patterns from another blog that I cannot find right now.  This makes me a little sad because I LOVE to give credit and share.

The leaves, beads and bullion stitches are all that are left to do.  Almost done!

Sunday morning I was yakking away with Magical and had a thought about using the storage drawers I had just purchased to put my fabric in...tried that.  Wasn't happy with that so I grabbed wallet and keys and went to the Fred Meyers and came back with four two drawer systems.


Fabric is in there, patterns for sewing are in there, yarn is in there....which got rid of 14 tote boxes that were all over the place!  These are on roller wheelies so they can be rolled hither and yon without pain to my back.


So I had this empty, crappy drawer thingy left over and decided to put the miscellaneous stuff in there which got rid of three more tote box thingies. This will be painted in the next few days to make it pretty and new looking and match the green, blue, yellow color scheme in the NCC.  It's so wonderful to have everything right there and no more moving tote box thingies which hurts my back and makes things not fun.

Seriously productive IHSW with stitching and with organizing.  Must be getting close to spring!

Until next time....Keep on Stitchin'!

  1. Yes spring is here! I love what you have going in your NCC! I am somewhat amused to read that you have the same colour scheme as I have in my bedroom :) But then it is such a fun happy colour combination! Keep up the good work and save time for stitching :)

    1. Of course! Six days off have stitching dominating...even if this morning turned out to be more than I had anticipated, I still have a FINISH!

  2. I can't have swearwords because of the boys! I quite like some of the subversive stuff but not just stitching the F-word for the heck of it.
    Great work on reorganising too.

    1. Imagine, if you will, when I was stitching up the bottom portion of the pattern and the only two words left to see were "F*** Off. Much giggling until I could throw that part away!
