What I have been up to...

Haven't posted in a few days as I have not been feeling well. Today I mainly layed around and watched "That 70's show" marathon That we recorded the other day.

I did start embroidering on one of the heart patterns, could have finished it but my head was pounding so bad I just couldn't do it anymore.

This is what it looks like so far~

Should be able to finish the roses in the center sometime this weekend. I haven't yet figured out exactly what I will be making with it, I am using the pattern for the sachet but I think it will probably just be a small wall hanging. I may even try and quilt it when it's done, don't know for sure.That is one thing I like about these type of patterns, you can put them on any fabric, and you can use them for whatever you want. I have been checking out some of the BOM's out there right now and have been saving up and printing out many of the free ones. I am really hoping to make some nice small wall hangings to practice my quilting on. I want to make something for my craft room and have decided that the room will be pinks and white's. The walls are white and my shleving is white so I plan on finding as many things with pink or even red to go with that. I have changed my mind so many times on what color I want in here, but I really want it to look country and to look girly, so I figure pink and white will do. I have some patterns that have sewing and quilting things on them so when I have finished up with my Valentine's day things I think I will start on that...

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I have lots of housework to catch up on but Roger has said he will help with that..

I finished reading the Duggar book a couple of days ago and it was real good. There were some things that I wanted to say about the book, things that I read in it that were very interesting but right now just don't feel like typing anymore..
Enjoy the picture of the heart embroidery..


  1. hope you feel better soon; your stitchery is very nice!


  2. I'm jealous. I can barely sew a button! That looks pretty so far!

  3. You've done such beautiful work. I'd like to get out my cross stitch and make something. I hope you feel better soon. Kathi

  4. Joann,
    Your embroidery project is looking really pretty. About the only embroidery I have done lately is some primitive embroidery. I usually use red floss so I guess you would say it is redwork. LOL Hope you feel better soon! Winona
