Out of Order & CTTY


Sunday morning when I walked into my Happy Place my sewing machine growled at me. I stepped a little closer thinking I might be hearing things and it growled even louder and then the words "step away from the sewing machine". LOL


It's National Sewing Month but no one said I had to use my sewing machine. Remember I MUST sew every day this month so I opted to start a new hand embroidery project - sewing by hand is the next best thing. This pattern is Snowmen A to Zzzz... by Crabapple Hill Studio. I opted to start with the letter C (candy cane) because I thought it was cute. The whole pattern is very cute but this little snowman/woman reminds me of me - short and fluffy. LOL




I'm hoping to have it completed by Thanksgiving so I can use it to decorate for Christmas but time will tell. :-)







Speaking of Christmas - teehee!!! If you haven't already decided to join us in our quest to make gifts for Christmas it's not too late. Remember making your gifts now will make for a less stressful holiday season for you. Cheryl has been posting lots and lots of tutorials. If you're simply not sure what you might want to make then take a peek at her blog. It's chock full of fabulous ideas.





And, if you participate this month you'll be eligible to win a little something from me.
This little something could be something you keep for yourself or you could simply add it to your Christmas gift box to give to a friend.




I hope you're enjoying pieceful days.
Thank you for visiting with me - come again soon.




In Friendship!

I had to go look at that whole pattern because I just melted seeing your one block! Omg....it is a good one! Can I possibly add another project to my bucket list? In case not...whip up two! Lol

Carol said...

Oh No! Not a growling sewing machine...maybe she just needs a rest. Love your snow person. That is going to be so darn cute!

Cheryl said...

So funny, a growling machine! Poor thing...it was exhausted. Love your sweet stitchery!

Debi said...

I adore your snowman block...and sorry to hear about the growling..hope it is nothing major.

We don't always have to be at the machine, any stitching is a good thing. The redwork snowmen is going to be so cute for this Christmas.

Now you're making me feel guilty for not finishing my Snowmen A to Zzzz quilt. I have about half the blocks done...from 3 years ago! I put it down to work on something else and never finished it. I guess I'm going to have to drag it out now and work on it...maybe.

Cute pattern and lovely stitching! What did you use to trace out your pattern? I've been using Transfer-Eze and I have mixed feelings about it.

Cheryl said...

I love your new project...I have no doubt you will get it done! You have been on a major roll! I just hate it when my sewing machine growls :-)!
