To my dearest Rotary Cutter: You sure will bet on it I will find your long lost sister/brother, and I will gladly tell them about you, cause you were the best!! Your cousin, Olfa, well he just isn't the same. ~Kim~
Hey R.C. you will be missed! You had the cleanest cut around.. I will miss you. Love RCM (Rotary Cutting Mat)
Memorials will be used to purchase a NEW Friskars Softtouch 45mm Rotary Cutter. Please feel free to leave a condolence.
Sorry, I just found the humor in this, and I just had to post!! LMAO
She said "Thank you so much. I really like how you finished this pillow and the colour of fabrics you had used are my favorites. You are really a great stitcher and finisher!!"
I started this design Thursday night, so I would have something to do while at the quilt show. Didnt take long to stitch up!
Princess - Hinzeit, stitched on 28ct evenweave Baby Pink from Sassy's with Emma's Pink (which my niece, Natalie selected the floss for the design). I attached the charms with invisible thread.
OMG it arrived!! What you asked!?!
My 2007 Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornament issue!!!!!
Kim: "WOOHOO its here.. I'm shaking, I cant even open it.!!"
Brian: " What is it?! Is that all we got?"
Kim: "Just the Winneconne News, and my magazine"
Kim: "See, I gotta find the letter opener thingy" Find it.. open it up.. "Yea!!"
Brian: "Whats all the excitement about?"
Kim: "Look my Christmas ornament issue arrived!!"
Brian: "Oh yeah, I remember, the Swimsuit issue of cross stitching"
I think he is a keeper... you think?!
Been one busy girl! Hope to find more time to post a few things.. especially the SFE, and PIF that I'm waiting to hear about when they arrive to their destination.
Still getting ready for the quilt show that is this weekend in Iron River. I'm vending - so for the past week I have been packing up the shop, and taking it on the road this weekend to the quilt show. I'm about 80% ready, and go today to set up at the museum, where the quilt show is being held. I worked on my demo last night, but it sounds soooo choppy. But I'm going to leave it.. gives me a base to talk about. I'm "demo-ing" about the internet.. how the internet is a unlimited source of free tips. techniques and patterns.
Yesterday got all my information typed up about Quilt Pink for our shop on Sept 29th, come to find out its the weekend before! &$#@!! I'm going to hold the Quilt Pink on the 29th, so I have to go back and change all the signs with new ones I had to make again last night. ARGH!! Don't know where I got Sept 29th from, besides I cant be there anyways that weekend before, since I work at the nursing home.
Well - I suppose, get my butt in gear.. Got some things I gotta do here yet, and then its off to the quilt shop, pack and unpack.. blah.. LOL Have a great weekend!!
Today's SBQ is:
Would you ever stitch one of your BAPs a second time? (This does not include starting over because of mistakes, bad fabric, etc., rather stitching something from the first stitch for a second time.)
Yes, I would stitch Game Board Sampler over, and I have been offered several time to do so. But no one has come back to say that they would love for me to stitch it for them.
I have restitched a BAP twice in the past. It was a model for Moonflower Designs - it was a daffodil, stitched it in orange and brown.
A comment was left asking what a "BAP" is... it stands for Big A$$ Project.
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name.
3. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
My middle name is Marie.
M - Melissa was going to be my first name, but my parents decided it would be too many M's, M.M.M.
A - I love being an Aunt to my nieces, Natalie, Katie, Kaylee, and nephew Conway!
R - Runaway Bride was my first movie that I went alone to see at the theater, and actually saw it again the following day with my parents.
I - Interested in going back to school - I wanna give myself a challenge. Most likely to do with computers.
E - Emails are the first thing I check when I get on the computer daily.
I tag the following bloggers - M - Michele, A - Aussie Stitcher, R - Rachel, I - Irene, E - Elaine
