Spring is almost here - and a cross stitch retreat

 Hello stitchers.  I hope eveyone had a
great stitching weekend.  The first
piece i made is for my oldest daughters
27th birthday.  Her birthday is in March
and it always reminds me spring is on its
way.  I added some mill hill beads and
a charm.
 Gingerbread house was such a
nice stitch.  I had the gingerbread
fabric to match.  The button can
be added on the house but I put
it on the top to add a different
finish.  I also added the red and
white piping that looks like peppermint.
I am delighted to add this to my christmas
ornament box.

Does anyone like fabric like i do? 
  I found an amazing fabric store in Sevierville,
TN, about 10 minutes from my cross stitch 
store Dixie Darling in Pigeon Forge. 
 I had an amazing shopping 
day.  I am going to post at
the bottom their business cards. 
 If you are ever in the area, both 
have to be on your shopping list.
I am going to be attending my first stitching
 retreat in May in
Sevierville, TN.   I will list the site for
 stitching retreats.
Very reasonably priced.  I hope to meet some 
of you someday.
The chocholate strawberry fabric
 i picked out for a project
bag.  My sister Cheryl is going to  
make the bag for me
so i picked out the faric. 
 Strawberrys and chocolate, my
 The Fabric store is The Cherry Pit.
  Its an amazing fabric store.
I stocked up.  The box stores just do not have
 the quality of a fabric store.

 The upper right is flannel fabric, so soft and just gorgeous.
I got a large charm pack and a small,  the fabrics in these
packs are gorgeous,  If you have access to purchase these
I highly recommend these.  The names are on them.

For cross stitch retreats, you can call Katrina
at 865-654-1883 or you can go to her
website at

YouTube called Floss Tube, I highly 
recommend it.  I have learned so much.
My videos are posted there under

There are so many out there with different 
stitching styles.  

Happy stitching everyone.

Snowmen fit right in

 It's a snowmans favorite time of year.
Some areas of the country have been
snowed in.  I finally found the perfect frame
for the snowman from the Just Cross stitch
ornament issue 2016.  the white frame
really made it pop.  He is proudly
displayed on the display ironing board.

 this piece is from JBW Designs
this is an ornament made for a wedding
I will attend in June.
Done on 4oct over one.
My sister ordered a dmc  holder from
Amazon.  the name is AKRO-Mils
I thought someone might want this for storage
and she said it is reasonably priced.
I will hold back from this purchase for now.
I hope everyone is getting a lot of stitching in
with the weather being cold in most areas.
I have joined Floss Tube and have posted
my first 2 videos.  Stop by and say hello.  It's
nice to see other stitchers in person.
The two videos are posted above.  If you
want to watch on a larger screen, go to
YouTube and do a search
