Stitch's Showcase

Come in and view the lens into Stitch's soul. Take what you will but remember that this photograph is a true original.

Howdy do everyone! I'm still here! LOL Now I know you all have been eager to know what I've been doing with time during my absence. Simply this, writing, stitching and playing with kitty. T's mom has a kitty kat so naturally with my love of animals, him and I have been getting in good quality time. He loves me now as I brush him almost every day to the point that he's spoiled. LOL As for stitching, I've been working on my binky squares and some Christmas ornaments. Now I know you all think I'm crazy as it's nearing March and I'm working on Christmas ornies, however, it's been in the 30s and I'm in the mood so I figured strike while the pot is hot. LOL But the third thing might have thrown you for a loop. Writing?? I didn't know she could do that. Well to tell you the truth, yes I can and I've missed it for some time. It's nothing special..just some stories about me...poems....whatever the little book insipires me to do. The little book is the Writer's Block..full of words, phrases, and questions to insipire those that shudder at a white piece of BLANK paper...much like the mind upon viewing such an item. I've written a story about the Date from Hades..and other things..that if I muster up enough courage I *might* share. I used to be quite the writer when I was a teenager..mainly about how parents just don't get it...and the typical other teenage angst problems. I even was the editor of the school newspaper but once I entered college I let it go. Heaven knows I've needed it as it's the cheapest version of therapy one could obtain...but mainly it was just journaling in college but no real writing. So that's what I've been up to. As for returning back to normalcy..that should happen by the weekend...just have a few added things to clear up. I miss you all!!


Happy Stitchin!

Now on to serious matters, it necessary that I step away from the net for a few days to deal with an unexpected family emergency. (Seems like a common theme as of late for us stitchy bloggers)..anyhoo..if you wish to email me..please do so...and I will answer upon my return. I'm expecting to only be gone for a few days however I thought I'd give you all a notice so that you don't worry about me. :)

I'm bringing my stitchy stuff so maybe I'll have some more updates when I put up the pic of my Smile kit...YAY! Oh..I'll also answer Christine's Meme..when I get I read it on her blog and she said if you do that..then you've been tagged! LOL Sneaky..Christine!

TGIF everyone! Hope everyone is having a good Friday! Tis nice and warm here in Va. It's hard to imagine that last weekend we were being blessed with 8 inches of snow and now it's 60! Strange weather...LOL

I had a blast yesterday with a good friend of mine!! I went to her house to stitch and gab for the day while T was at work. We had MAD fun!! We went out shopping for crafty stuff....LOL She bought more than I did...I just got some black rondelle beads. I finally gave her her Christmas present..and Valentine's Day present! She loved both of them!! Of course her ornament is pending as to when I can find where I put it! I put all my ornaments in a ziploc bag during the year...and I stuck it some place where I knew I wouldn't lose it. That's the evil sentence right there..." where I know I wouldn't lose it"...seems like if you put ANYTHING under that WILL lose it! :/ LOL Anyhoo, had a yummy lunch of chicken salad sandwiches..and just gabbed the day away. It was great! I can't wait to hang out with her again!! :) No stitching was done however...we were just having too much fun. LOL

Anyhoo on to the SBQ of the Week as suggested by Heather: Thanks Heather!!

Comment on your comments (giving and receiving): Do you love W comments or hate them? Do you check them every day, never check them, or find them helpful? And finally, are you convinced no one is reading your blog if you don’t get any? ;)

I LOVE getting comments!! I often get worried if I don't have any as I'll go chase down my "usuals" ( the people that comment the most often) to make sure they are doing ok. LOL I do check them every's nice to be loved and read! I know that there are people reading my blog that don't comment and that's fine...but honestly, if I don't have one comment..I worry. LOL Thanks for all the comments gals!!! *HUGS* to go stitch. Going to stitch up a quick little kit because I need a finish. It's a small little Smile Kit that I got from my friend Nona!

Have a good one!

Tho tomorrow is one of my favorite days..half price off all CHOCOLATE! whooo about shopping spree!!! :D Random statement..but I don't know what's going on with the website for my is down for now..and I'm not sure when it will back. :( Just thought I'd let ya know...

So let's see...I broke my stitching slump...and stitched on a Christmas ornie. Yea, I know..CHRISTMAS?!?!?! *THUD* But it was a small project..and I figured that's what I needed to jump back cure the slump. No picture it's for someone..hehe :)

Anyhoo, that's basically it. I'll post some pics up soon...I I'm on the mad search for Lobster claws! No..not the kind you eat...the kind I need for my fobs! They are such a PAIN to find!......

Happy Valentine's Day to all! *HUGS*

Good evening! Going to be a short entry tonight as I"m going to go stitch some! YAY! After a week and half drought....I'm going to try to put some stitches in something. Anyhoo, here is this weeks SBQ as suggested by: Nancy

Describe your “perfect” project. (Include the designer or specific pattern, the fabric, the floss, and anything else that would make that project “perfect” for you.)

Hmmm..good question. It's nice to make one actually use their brain every once in a while. My perfect project would have to be more than likely an Asian design. Probably designed after one of those painted silk screens with dragonflies, cranes, water..etc. It would have a neat saying or the elements in Kanji symbols. I'd really enjoy that! Much like I'll enjoy Crane Paradise when I get started on it! LOL

Hope that answers the question. That was a hard one!! LOL

Happy Stitchin!!

Howdy do! Wonder if anyone noticed I haven't been online in a while?? Well here is the explanation behind my absence. I have retreated away from the computer for a while. I do contests on some of the message boards. I did 12 over Christmas I love bringing some cheer to people! It's what I live for. But anyhoo, I haven't been getting the prizes out in a timely enough fashion for some. I have been busy with other things, but have been checking my email..not replying..will do that soon..( Sorry Lili)..but anyhoo, imagine my surprise to find several ANON emails asking me where is my prize? It's been three months since Christmas..blah should have sent it by now..blah blah. Rather hurtful things.

Now I don't expect a thank you when I send out something....but acknowledgement of reciept would be nice. Otherwise, I wait the allotted time..and then go postal on my PO guy..who doesn't deserve it as it's just due to ungrateful people not writing me back!!! So needless to say, with all the recent activity..I have nearly decided to STOP my contests..and retreated away from the it hurt me too badly. :(

I haven't even been it was a reminder of the contest fiasco...but I'm coming back out of my shell slowly...

I just try to make each package special...and cater it towards the individual....and well gosh darn it..that takes TIME!! Plus with the increase in postage, I don't have 50 bucks to blow at one time..I have to spread it to not shock me..or T's wallet. LOL

Granted this vent is not addressed to all of most of you have been very sweet! But I'm just telling ya why I've retreated....

Happy Stitchin..

Howdy do! is Friday baby!! So what have I done since my last post?? Absolutely nothing! LOL I hung out with my stitchy friend in the city yesterday...we had a great time! No stitching of course...but plenty of yapping..and went to IHOP
( International House of Pancakes) for lunch..of course a trip to Michaels was also needed. LOL I didn't get much..just some beads that were on clearance. But it was soo good to see her as I haven't in about 5 months. LOL She was giving me compliments about how much weight I had lost..and how much healthier I's hard for me to take compliments...don't know why. Anyhoo, I still need to lose more...but I'll do it overtime I'm sure. It was just cool to be able to look at a menu at a restaurant..and not have to nit pick..nope..that'll make ya sick....umm no..too much fat...etc. LOL

So tonight it's hitting the grocery store...and just hanging out with T. Might get some stitching in some more on the ornie.

Anyhoo, got these in my email..and I figured I'd share the answers with y'all. Enjoy!

I did leave some of the questions they are too personal..( meaning they ask for too much info that could lead to someone stopping me on the street..going HEY!!!) LOL
