Twelve, Eleven, Eight, Seven

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

Wow, I am such a slacker lately about blogging. Yikes, sorry. What can I say, I've been busy with non-stitchy things.

I did, however, do some stitching a couple weeks ago. The super talented Mollie of Wild Olive asked me if I could do her a little favor. She was busy preparing for her Etsy shop update, and asked if could help her out by stitching a new pattern for her. Well, when Mollie comes a-calling, I answer!

Eeeeeeh! The cuteness! Go to her shop & get these patterns! All twelve days of Christmas are represented, and the things you could do are endless. Ornaments, stockings, banners...hmmm...

Speaking of Mollie, she recently tagged me. She included pics with her answers when she did this, but I am feeling pretty darn lazy really super busy today so pics won't be included in mine.

1) What books are on your favorite shelf?

**My books are scattered throughout my house in different rooms, but my current favorite books are on my sewing desk. All my stitchy books are there, including three Japanese embroidery books (squeal!), Stitched in Time by Alicia Paulson and Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart.

2)What DVDs are on your favorite shelf?

**The Office, Friends, and tons of stuff for my kids.

3)What are your two favorite cookbooks?

**I have a little notebook that has family favorites in it. I refer to it again and again. It's small, worn, and about 13 years old, but it's definitely my fave. :) My other favorite dunno! I really like my Taste of Home magazines. Does that count?

4) Select 1-3 recipes that you will cook for your special guests.

**Well, special guests rarely include anyone outside of family members (Candi, you're considered family around here), so anything I prepare for them is gonna be pretty simple. Enchiladas! Yum.

5)What will we be drinking that's available?

**Tequila!! Just kidding. Milk & water, we've always got that. Soda if you're lucky. :)

And because I am feeling pretty darn lazy really super busy today, everyone who reads this is tagged! If you play along, let me know so I can take a peek at your answers.

Well, that's it for now, my beloved bloggy friends. I am currently working on a couple of swaps that I hope to be able to share with you soon. Until then...

Happy Stitching!

CUTE!!!! Love the 7 with the flippers!!!

I think Taste of Home counts as a recipe book too!!!

Where did you get the candy corn on your sidebar?

Thanks gals!

Jonesy! I can't wait to see how you stitch up the Hanukkah Helpers! They will be so cute. :)

Miss P, I got the candy corn from Annie Oakleaves Etsy shop last year. She closed her shop a while ago; I haven't checked lately to see if she's reopened it yet

Does it get any better than candy cane nummbers?

Oh these are cute, can't decide which is my favorite!

I have to stop myself from buying any more Taste of Home, I always want to make everything in it ;)

Taste of Home puts out an annual cookbook with all the recipes from the year. We get one every year from my mom at Christmas (since 2000 now) and they are definitely my favorites!
