One Day Winner

I really don't like to post without atleast ONE photo so I'm going to start sharing "past" things I've made when I don't have anything recent I can share. In this photo is a Lazy Girl purse I had made for our DGD, Katie in 2007. I used the foam in the ladybug to create the 3D effect on the black spots as well as the feet when embroidering. Kelli is raising Katie right - she's a purse-aholic like her Mommy and Mimi....LOL

I LOVE sewing/embroidering/quilting and just about any craft that is available. Kelli (DD) has now outdone her Mom in crocheting. She crochets so beautifully - I will share the pic of a purse she made me this past Christmas in another post.

How many of you still cross stitch? Yes, I still love cross-stitch too, even if it is from the 80's,,LOL Below is one I made while living in Cairo, Egypt. It was framed by a wonderful Egyptian there. (As many of you know, I "do" Christmas year-round.)

Okay, enough "past" things....sorry for rambling but it's SEW good to be back to Blogland. I'm still having to do a couple strange things to be able to post and upload pics but I'm "working it".

The winner of Stephanie's wonderful "Barefoot in the Park" pattern is:

#6, Cyndi of Bluebird's Wing
Please take time to visit Cyndi's blog, she makes the most wonderful handbags. I would love to "One Day" (excuse the pun) be the proud owner of one her beautiful creations. She is such a talent.
Congrats Cyndi - please email me your personal email address and I'll have Stephanie get a copy of "Barefoot in the Park" to you.

What a cute bag for your DGD and yep I still do counted cross stitch. It was once my go-to project when I couldn't quilt, now that's knitting.


PS - Thanks for the sweet e-mail....ditto :0) Lionel, Stevie Wonder & Neil Diamond are my favs to listen to.

Congrats to Cyndi.

Pictures really do work....don't they? as the saying goes; 'a picture is worth 1000 words'.

So fun to have you back! :-) And I still do some cross stitch although the fabric seems to have "shrunk". Ha!

Just popping in to wish you a nice weekend, and hope you are doing well. I read Quilt Hollow's post, and it did remind me how life takes different turns than we plan sometimes. Hope you'll be "back in business" very soon!
Greetings from Norway,

Hi Cindy.

I have been looking for the cross stitch houses you made. My mom got it as a gift and I have been looking for the pattern for years to make myself one. Do you have the pattern? DO you know how I can find it or the name of the pattern or the book it was in.. Please please help me find this!!
Also you did a BEAUTIFUL job on it!
