I'm baaacck

Time really got away from me this time. Since I last posted, my DD#2 graduated from University of Illinois. She chose to go the the ceremony for her department rather than the large convocation for the whole school. The graduation was in a small auditorium and it was really a nice ceremony. I was so proud of my baby. She is at home working at her the ice cream store. (She has been working there since the end of her Senior year of high school). She plans to move to Los Angeles with a friend in the fall.

I wish I had lots to show since it has been so long since I last posted, but I haven't been very productive. I did get some needle work pieces framed. A needle punch rabbit for spring.

A needle punch house.

A cross stitch Victorian house. ( I have a thing for houses).

I did just finish this top as well. This is Hop To It in flannel and wool. I did the same BOM in batiks and some other fabrics mixed in at the shop where I work. Just as soon I started it at work, my friend emailed me the BOM from Primitive Gatherings. I just had to do the wool version too. I am not sure what I will do with two of them.... but the tops are done.

I started Physical Therapy on my neck this week, so I hope that I get some pain relief. I need more time at my sewing machine!

See you later and happy stitching


  1. Congrats to your daughter!!
    I love the needlepunch pieces- they really are terrific.
    The Hop to it quilt is gorgeous!! I wouldn't have a problem figuring out what to do with two of them. What beauties!!
    I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. Congratulations to you and your daughter. I can imagine how proud you are of her. The needlework pieces look very nice in their frames, and I love the Hop To It quilt top. I hope the therapy works so you can get back to doing what you enjoy.


  3. What a beautiful smile and gorgeous eyes you daughter has! And a college degree! What an achievement! All your needlework is very nice; I think I like the Victorian house best, should you need to get rid of it! *wink* ---"Love"

  6. Congratulations to the graduate! Your projects are all beautiful, I have a thing for houses, too. I hope the pain in your neck goes away soon, too.

  7. Congrats, Beth, to you and your daughter! Your projects are just gorgeous. You sure your daughter won't "borrow" a couple when she moves?

  9. It's great when our kids achieve that college degree!! Congratulations to her! I love your BOM - it is awesome!

  10. Congrats to your daughter. Your stitched pieces are wonderful. I really love the house, do you know the name of the pattern for the house. Even though I haven't done much crossstitch lately, I'd love to have the pattern. The quilt is awesome. Hope you feel better. Connie204

  11. You must be enormously proud of DD#2's achievements. She's off into the big wide world now. I hope you have some relief for your neck soon. The quilt is fabulous! I also like your framed projects - lovely work indeed. Ann :-)
