A Bit of Cross Stitching

With the weather getting slightly cooler, I find myself wanting to curl up on the couch with a good movie, a cup of tea, and some needlework. 

As I have mentioned before, I am a sucker for samplers.  Currently I have been working on this Winterwoods ABC's Cross Stitch Sampler, purchased from Alicia Paulson at Rosy Little Things.  I just adore her stuff! 

In fact, as I have been comfortably curled up, I have been letting my mind wander to a few designs for a sampler and quilts/wall hangings. We'll see where it goes!

Sewing Summit 2012


Hey there!  For those of you attending sewing summit this year, you know that Tuesday was quite the hectic day with class registrations.

After scouring the class schedule, info sheets, and much careful planning, I got two classes that were my first choice.  From reading about last year's events, I know that the classes are just a small portion of this conference.  Many of the instructors have been posting that they are willing to do "after hour" classes to those of us who didn't get in their classes anyway!  Aren't they just fantastic!!

There are so many other "unofficial" events going on as well.  A mixer Friday night hosted by the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild, fabric shopping, swaps, a 5K fun run entitled "Running with Scissors."  It will be a busy funfilled couple of days.

I am so very excited to be attending this year!  To finally have the chance to meet in person all those wonderful, creative people whose blogs I stalk admire. As well as many other talented folks. 

Will you be attending?

Busy Little Bees

Things have been pretty crazy around here.  School started back up,  Logan is now in Pre-K.  We are just getting used to the school year schedule again.

My little Aslyn turned 2 years old!  Where does the time go?  Since one of Logan's teacher's birthday is the day before Aslyn's, we all took the tram in Albuquerque up to the top of the Sandia Mountains and had dinner.

Lots and lots of cattle work being done.  Ultra sounding (I am the ultrasound tech), breeding, embryo flush and transferring. 

We spent most of Labor Day weekend working, but managed to get away on Monday.  We drove up to Nambe and played in the water holes.


I did manage to squeeze in one little project.  After being asked for a business card and not having any on me, I decided I needed a business card holder.  After searching the web for a few tutorials, I got the general gist of it and put this one together.  This little project is great for those lingering scraps.

Lastly, my iron died on me.  Luckily, I had just finished reading the iron reviews in the debut issue of Generation Q magazine.  An order to Amazon and now I am impatiently waiting for my new iron to arrive.

Hope all has been well with you!
