Glimpses of Christmas

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

I whipped up a little something tonight. I don't know about you, but I think it is pretty darn adorable. :)


in the q-snap


This adorable pattern is by the talented Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive. If you have not checked out Mollie's blog yet, I highly suggest you get over there right now. You will NOT be disappointed!

So, this was my first attempt at crayon tinting...not too shabby, eh? This was much easier than I thought, and I really love the results. I actually colored this guy while I was on the phone...including setting the crayon with the iron...that's how easy this process is. Pimp Stitch has an awesome tutorial that I found to be very helpful.

This is just a little glimpse of what I have been working on. I am still in the beginning stages of most of my projects, but man-oh-man are they coming along nicely so far! I am super stoked about the way this cute little ornament turned out, and can't wait to be able to show you what else I am working on. I will be back soon with pictures, I promise! Until then...

Happy Stitching!

You just "whipped" this up? My goodness you are clever!

I had a dream the other night that I went to Wal-Mart and bought a box of 64 Crayons for this purpose. Now you know I am crazy when I am dreaming about my stitching!! LOL

I am so so honored you have me as a person you visit. It blesses my heart! Thank you!!

Oh, I love my new Q Snap! My DH even commented that it looked better than the hoops!! Thanks again for the "scoop!"
