WhAt I'vE bEeN WoRkInG oN...

Hey there! yesterday I went shopping at Joanns..and found some pretty interesting drapery cloth. it is in the home dec section and was 50% off it is like muslin only thicker and not at thick and stiff as canvas..but it is so nice for these embroideries.it was on the long role their and is $12.99 a yard..but it is on the big roll..I also so got some huck cloth..looks like embroidery fabric..so going to give that one a try too....This is what I am currently working on..started it last night..It goes in this stretcher like thing that I also got at joanns and it works nicely to hold your stitching..it takes a bit to get the fabric situated but once its in..it works nicely..
I did this one on tuesday night..this is on stained muslin..turned out pretty well..I am so enjoying watching TV and being able to sew and just relax...and the fact that I am killing two birds with one stone...:)

this is on osnaburg..this is more difficult to work with..going to try regular cross stitch material..it is hard to work with as it is floppier to work with...if that makes any sense....Well I was doing a skin care party tomorrow..but no one can give me the courtsey of calling me..so only 3 people are wanting to come..so not worth my time...they have the best body butter you can imagine..its like having a spa treatment..and it smells so good..they are just a skin care line and body care line too..anyway the weather is gorgeous..got some muslin stained and on the clothesline..I am in love with that clothesline..it soooo takes me back to being a kid and running through the clean laundry while I was growing up..it is the little things that tickle me..so I think I am going to take out some wood to paint and let dry in the sun and get the kittys out to enjoy some of this sun and maybe get some rays myself and read some free magazines I picked up at the show I went to last week..I hope you all have a wonderful day..

  3. Quit your bragging about your sun!
    Especially since we have had nothing but grey skies and rain for the past 4 days!
    Love your stitcheries...yet jealous at the same time...because I can not do it!
    Have a great night and enjoy your warm sun!
