Pretty Belle

I tried to get Pretty Belle to model the start of the tam. I think she looks stunning!

The Amorso Tam

Finished up the Amoroso tam to match the colorful scarf. This is such a quick knit! Love this colorway too.

One of my favorite patterns. It was very fun to stitch!!

Carriage House Sampling Finished

Here are a couple of Christmas stitches from CHS. Stitched on Chocolate Brown 32 count linen. I have two more to stitch up on the same fabric.

Recent Stitching Finishes

I wanted to get ahead of the 2008 Loose Feathers releases. AND I DID IT! I have the first two, Where My Heart Blooms and Rites of Spring finished. The 3rd will be released on the 1st of June and I'll be ready to go.


Here's Casanova trying to help me with knitting and photographs!

Knitted Scarf and Hat for a Chicago Bound Student

This scarf and hat was so much fun to knit. The scarf is from two completely different colorways of the same yarn. Knit two rows, then change colors. I then knit up the hat in 'Glazed Carrots' Malabrigo with the orange colorway as an accent. Fun Fun Fun

Carly turns the BIG 13

Here are some pic's on Carly's 13th Birthday. The six girls were sleeping over outside in the tent for the party. Do you know what six 13-year-olds turn into at midnight...thirteen 6-year-olds. They had a blast.

A Place to Switch

Cheryl, Alice and Susie

Susie and Caron

Joan and Rita

Our crazy stitching group is always looking for a great place to stitch. We call ourselves many names, one of which is, A PLACE TO STITCH. When we made reservations at a county park, the park ranger misunderstood the name and had is posted on many bulletin boards as 'A Place to SWITCH'. Way too funny
