30 Days!!!!!

Finally, a finish!!!! This piece was my travel stitching project so I have been working on and off on this one for a while, but I felt like I had to wrap it up, so here it is~

Pattern: Little House Needleworks “Plant Kindness”
Thread: Gentle Art and DMC Cotton
Fabric: 28 ct Linen color Flax
Stitched Size: 5.75” x 7.5”
Completion Date: 06-22-2012

I really like the colors on this one, purple and green, my favorite colors~


So I went to visit a Sew and Vac superstore here in San Diego and guess what I got!! A new sewing machine!!! I didn’t actually plan on buying that day but saw this model there and it was on sale, and the next thing I knew I was pulling out my credit card!!! I still have to test it out more but I’m liking it so far!!!


So what do all these have to do with 30 days? Well, that is when I will be moving – AGAIN!!! This time, we are moving overseas back to my home country - Taiwan~ That is why I am so eager to finish up my projects and get a new machine is such a short time. Although I’ve already packing, I still have all my crafting things out. I need to figure out what I want to work on before all the boxes arrive to our new home… So if it seemed like I have not been too active lately, that’s because I’m busy packing!! I’ll try to pop in as often as I can~ Enjoy your weekend!!
