Stitching and shopping

Good morning/afternoon! How is everyone on this lovely day? It was bright and sunny out just a little while ago, but it's gotten darker and I heard a few rumbles of thunder. Ideally it will clear up before the kids have to get on the bus! For now I love being inside during a thunderstorm, don't you? It makes me feel all warm and cozy.
Speaking of cozy, I'm plugging along on the wool candle mat. Looking cute, oui?

It's fun and easy! Although I am running out of that tan thread for the cup decorations. It uses all 6 strands so it goes quick. But so far so good.
Yesterday I made a little bag for my niece's birthday. I'm going to put a gift card inside. I don't *think* she reads my blog, but if she does, Hi Katie! Surprise!

The blue fabric is Flower Sugar by Lecien from Sharon's store. Oh I love that one! The rest is Lakehouse, they seem to go so well together!
I went birthday shopping for the kids today...I got everything on my list! In fact I went a little nuts!

Dave if you're reading this, the kids have been really good this year, right? Right!
Ok I'm starving so off to get some lunch. I did my Wii Fit already today so I worked up an appetite. I won't eat too much though, that will defeat the whole purpose!

Have a great day!

  1. Your stitchery is coming along great and I love the little bag! I have those fabrics too :)
    Of course your kids have been good ... buy them anything they want! :)

  2. Cute cute bag! Did you motify the size from the original pattern? Looks smaller but that could be the way it's photographed. Your stitchery is way cute! I can't wait to see it all done.

  3. You are sooo funny--thanks for a laugh---
