Okay so I haven't exactly figured out just yet how I want to use this piece, but I've at least gotten this part of it done. I wanted a bit more of a challenge and it was fun to try and get all the little detailed lines in there.I made this mini-pillow with the idea in mind to start working on my blind stitch....which I'm terrible at! I'm just glad you can't see how badly I stitched the bottom of this poor pillow!
Well, that's it for now. I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and please don't forget to put an entry in for my giveaway!

I've developed quite a little fascination with crows lately, so I made this as a throw pillow for my bed.
Getting a bit away from needle-crafting, I wanted to try to experiment with working on paint textures on wood and this is what I got with this piece. I think it's kinda fun:)
I also wanted to let you know to be on the lookout for a giveaway that I'll either be posting tonight or tomorrow. Hope ya'll have a great one!

Seeing as she has two sons in the Navy, I thought this was something that she would really appreciate. What do you guys think? I'm thinking of doing something similar for a give-away here...so your feedback would let me know if anyone would be interested. Hope you're all having a great weekend!

This is Max. He's one crazy black cat and I have to admit he's grown on me quite a bit since I made him.
This is Max and Edgar. Edgar was my first attempt and I thought he was going to turn out horribly, but surprisingly even with the bunching around the eyes(I need to get an embroidery hoop so that hopefully won't happen again) he ended up being pretty cute. What do you guys think?
Well I think that's all for today. I apologize for the rather bumbling post, but I'm too excited to sit here much longer and I'm ready to dive right back into working on new projects. Have a great one!

It honestly looks better in person because my camera just can't capture the colors correctly. What do you think? I hope she'll like it.

I've been doing okay and I am praying that things will finally start to get some kind of order to them. We've been trying to convince my mother-in-law to come and live with us. She's become disabled and cannot work, drive a car, or really support herself. My poor husband has been really worried for her health and state of mind, but she wants to remain independent...and I can understand that. It's a delicate situation and we only want what is best for everyone involved.
I do ask that you all pray or send good thoughts to my little dog, Pepper. The other day my dear husband found a lump on her hindquarter's and so we are trying to get a vet appointment to see what it could be. We love our little pup as much as we would a child, so please keep her in your thoughts.
We've also begun our apartment search for our move to Virginia. It's coming up in the middle of Sept. and to tell you the truth, I am more than ready to just get it over with. I love it here in Corpus Christi, but since I know I can't stay...I've begun to detach myself some. So please send out your prayers and thoughts that we'll be able to find a new place that we can call home!
Thankfully, it hasn't been all doom and gloom here lately! I know some of you may not want to hear the "C" word just yet, but my dear husband and I decided that this year, we are going to make all our ornaments for our Christmas tree. I've even gotten a bit of a start and plan to do mittens, hearts, stars, and stockings. I think it's going to be fun and I might even make a few as Christmas presents this year. The great part about it is, they are inexpensive(I use felt) and easy to make. What do you think? I'm also working on a project for a giveaway...so stay tuned for that!Well, I guess I'll close for today. If I don't get back before the rest of the week passes by, know I am thinking about you all and I hope you have a fantastic week!
