Spring Queen update

Spring Queen is getting an arm now. I am still working on it. I did not take a new pic yet but I have more of the sleeve done on her dress. It blends in with the fabric so hard to tell anything has been done. I am waiting to get more colors in the sleeve so when I do take a pic it will be more noticeable.

New Bling for the Queen

I got my new and first laptop yesterday. The main reason for getting one is for when I go back to school. I love this new toy. It is a HP Pavilion with a 15.6 inch screen. Not the biggest but not the smallest. I wanted something more portable with going back and forth to school with. I got a Swiss Gear carry case and Swiss Gear cooling fans for my new toy. I LOVE my new computer. I have even shared with the King and Court Jester 2. Court Jester 1 was not at home to play with it, but she will get her turn.

Rockin' Women

When I think of women who knit, crochet, cross stitch, or any other cool hobby or art form, I think of images like these cool ladies.

I have been told I have an "old" soul. I have been told I am old. All I can say is "kiss it".
I love this!!

Spring Queen

My tiny progress on Spring Queen. She is starting to have an arm. Then I can start on the top sleeve of her dress. I love the colors and she looks soooo much better in person than the pics can ever show.


This is a case to hold beads. I got this for the up coming new start of Sabrina. This will hold the Mill Hill beads and Mill Hill Treasures. I have a longer one to hold beads for Spring Queen and Autumn Queen. I love these things to hold beads!!



Valentine Day Gift

For Valentine's Day I got a new purse. It is red. It is Sparkly. It is ME! :D

My Needle Minder

Robocop got me a needle minder. It is a crown....perfect for me since I am Queen Bee.
;) The top pic is dark I know, but it shows more detail of the crown. The bottom pic too bright but shows the true color of the background of the crown. I LOVE this needle accessory!






Needle Minders have a magnet on the back. It is held in place on your stitching by the magnets. When you want to change floss or if you need to get up, you just place needle on top and the magnet keeps the needle from getting lost.


The Kelmscott Designs makes many different designs for their Needle Minders.

Fun Monday



The wonderful Church Lady is hosting this weeks Fun Monday.

Her assignment:

How do you beat the doldrums when you are stuck in the house either because it is too cold or too hot outside? Do you read? Cook? Complete a home improvement project? Watch movies? Scrapbook? Please share your ideas.

What I do is Cross Stitch. Do scrapbooking a little bit, but cross stitching is my favorite!! I love to cross stitch. Did I mention to you cross stitch?? My family knows that it just my "thing".
From previous post there are pics of what I am working on or have completed.




This is what I am working on. It will be a heart ornament for Valentine's Day.











This is Spring Queen by Mirabilia. I started stitching on her arm today!











This is a bowl my son made for me at school. He made it to hold my stitching stuff. How cool is that?? :D It holds my cool reading glasses that are in the case. My favorite Gingher Stork scissors. My pink pencil and pen.




You may notice my pink Nintendo DS game bag. I got this for my birthday from Robocop. I have wanted a Nintendo DSi forever. He got me the hot pink one, so of course the matching bag and matching game cases. :D This is how I been getting through the "doldrums".

New Drool and New Want for a New Start

I love Mirabilia Designs. I always have and I have a few of her charts. Her newest design is a lovely one called Sabrina. She is just beautiful. Some have said she is too thin or her neck is so long. I like her anyway. This is what Nora Corbett the designer and Mirabilia herself said about her newest release.

My newest cross stitch goddess is inspired by old black and white movie glamour and celebrates the perfection of onscreen couture. Velvety charcoal embroidery drapes a sea of satin, sprinkled with crystal stars in this elegant and luscious design.


Like with most of her designs Mill Hill Beads, Mill Hill Treasures, Kreinik Metallic threads, and Caron Waterlilies.

I can't wait to get her and all the goodies and have a new Mirabilia start.

Grrrrrr

I think I only have one or two people left to comment on for their first monday. Me and blogger are not getting along. I have tried to get to blogs and make comments but something always goes wrong. LOL Taken me days to get done what should only take a minute.

Then again it might be just me. LOL
