Union Jack / Stars and Stripes . . . E-Pattern

I tell you, I just LOVE making these hearts.
I figured
that since I made the Scottish Saltire,
I needed to make a
Union Jack for the United Kingdom.

This patttern is for sale. If you are interested in buying it, leave a comment as such and I will be in contact with you.

I Think I DO Bleed Red, White and Blue

Saltire / Stars and Stripes Heart e-Pattern

To celebrate my Scottish roots and to make as a Thank You gift for the man who did the research in Scotland for me, I designed a heart combining the Stars and Stripes and the Saltire.

If you would like to buy this pattern, leave me a comment and I will get in touch with you.

What do you think?

I so enjoy making these hearts with different things in them. If you would like something designed, let me know and we can see what we can work out.

Projects, Projects, Projects

1st of all, i wish I had pix to show all of you what I am making, but none of them are finished . . . and all are going to be sent to people so I can't show them until they get them . . . they either read the blog in blog-land or on facebook.

But, since no one knows they are getting anything, at least I can tell you what I am working.

I started a baby sweater out of Aunt Lydia's #3 Double Strand in, I believe, Mexicali and Victory Red. I so like making baby sweaters and dresses out of this cotton thread. hey feel so nice when touched and their drape is better than yarn.

Next, I started a St. Patrick's small, it is about 1/2 way done. Next came a patriotic small which I finished then started a Christmas small which is close to be 1/2 done.

I cleaned out some of the patterns I had copied. I found a bunting I always wanted to try, so I started it On the 2nd row I had to totally change the pattern .  ..didn't like the way it was turning out. Then I got to the body and tried the body that was written out . . . didn't like that either. So, basically, I used the chain they suggested, and the rest, as they say, is history. Can't wait to see what it looks like when I am done.

Oh, I forgot 1 thing, Jessie, I made a couple of things to send to you today before I started the bunting. I found another pattern that I had always wanted to try, so you will be the recipient of it  . and a couple of other things that I think you will find useful this month .  . . hint, hint, and they have nothing to do with Ground Hog or President's Day :0}

Now, back to my evening TV watching . . .can't wait to see what Kathy Bates is up to on Harry's Law.

1st Finished Smalls

For those of you who don't know, smalls are little ornaments. I have loved them for a long time but these are the 1st two I have designed and completed.

This is my 2nd design.
I just call it Heart 01 . . straight forward and to the point.

This was my 1st.
It has a front and a back . .
 I still need to attach a charm
to the back to finish the back
but I wanted to post the front ASAP.

Yes, Just Something Else to Keep Me From Cleaning The House!

Christmas Card Ornament #12 - 14.5 + One Extra Holiday

Yes, you read it right . . 14.5 ornaments are done. You will notice that the 14th one is only started. So, maybe it should be 14.25 . . but who's gonna be picky?

(Quiet Denise {Riverside Stitching}. . I don't need any comments from the Peanut Gallery in Ohio!) LOLOL


#13 . . . poor little cross eyed pengy


#14.5 Can you guess what it is going to be?

And now, the the + 1 and one that gor messed up. I guess that's what I get for working on linen over 1 stitch :0{
One messed up St. Paddy Heart :{
As Dad al;ways said,

Christmas Card Ornaments # 5-11

I harassed Denise (Riverside Stitching)
about not showing us her progress.

Then, I decided,

So I better get my
posted before she catches me.

Post #1

If my plans, at present, go as planned . . . this will be the blog for my Fur Babies Sampler.

I want to make each square 1" x 1" . . . with the name of the specific fur baby the square is dedicated to written below the square.

Each square will have a different stitch, similar to the ones Denise made in her 100 Blessings sampler.

 Now, to finish my 100 Blessings sampler so I can start on this one . . . perhaps, I may take time off of my blessings sampler to start on this one.

I want to do the squares in order . . . so I may have to send a note to Connie Anderson to see if they still have the "kids" records on file at the Animal Hospital and if she can send me a copy of the 1st page of each.
