A Cottage Finish and a New Start

 Here it is!!!  My third finish of the year and second of the Cottages.  Again, I have not added the month name, and have just filled that in with more hearts.  I also shortened the topiaries in the sides of the house.  I had to do that since I have brought the top down about 8 rows.  I think it turned out cute.
 Here is the start of March's Cottage.  I am further along on it as of now, but I am going to frog the darker green, it is just too dark for my taste.  Again, I am modifying this one as well.  Hope to post another pic of it soon.  Although I am extremely busy lately, these are going fairly quickly for my standards. I am skipping April for now and have May and June coming in the mail.  

I have also come across a huge pile of craft buttons and have put them in the SHOP.  Purples, pinks, greens, blues, reds, whites....These are great for a multitude of crafts, from cross stitch, to sewing, quilting, ornaments....  I have kept many for myself and the rest are up for sale for fantastic prices!!!!

A FINISH!!! And a WIP!

 Well, here it is.  My first cottage, finished!!  I am way behind, but that's okay.  I am just psyched that I did it.  This is my favorite so far.  As you can see I am leaving out the month names, I just didn't want them.  I am moving the top down about 8 stitches and improvising with the various elements already in the designs.  I am over half way finished with February and am making the flowers on the sides a bit shorter to make it work better.  I really like this too, I'm just not sure about my color choice of green.  It's a bit darker than the original, but it will have to work because I am not frogging it.  As you can see I have March in my queue.  I will be doing a floss toss for this one soon.  

Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone is well,

Little Knots Spa Cloth Crochet Pattern

 Here is another new Spa Cloth pattern that I have listed in the SHOP.  I am excited about this one too.  I created a stitch that looks to me like little knots.  This makes for a nice scrubby texture to the cloth and its stretchy too.  Makes a perfect dishcloth too.  

 I am still having a 50% off sale  30% off Sale in the shop, so this pattern is only $1.50   $2.10.  They whip up quickly and make a perfect gift.

I also wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who has donated or bought patterns to support my Sister, my Brother in Law and the family.  Every little bit has helped.  They are so far away from home right now.  My Brother in Law is making progress, but it is very, very slow so far.
Thank you for all your prayers as well.  We are very hopeful.

WIPocalypse Update

 Well, it has been a very busy and exhausting month for me.  I feel as if I have just been floating in space and not really here on solid ground.  A few weeks ago, I pulled out Gathering Eggs from Mirabilia and stared at it.  I have not had one stitch in it this month.  I so wanted to start on her again, being so close to Easter, but life has just got in the way.  Here she stands, with an extra row of stitches on the right hand side.  I am not frogging a thing, but finishing her up in the forefront, then adding more stitches to the background.  Hopefully it will work out in the end.  

I have been crocheting a lot.  I find that that activity takes up less mental capacity than cross stitching, so that's my go to activity.  I am hoping to get some done on this little girl soon.  I just love her bright colors.  I think I need a little cheering up.

Support for My Sister and 50% Off Crochet Patterns

Hello everyone, I am writing to ask a favor of you all.  By no means do you have to, but I thought, "It wouldn't hurt to ask."

Post from Friday March 23, 2012
 I woke up this morning to find out that my Brother in Law has suffered a stroke.  He was in South Carolina on a job, and his family is up here in Northern Maine.  He is currently in the hospital struggling for his life, while my sister is getting ready for her plane trip down.  He has two teenage daughters that are just beside themselves and just don't know what to do or to think.  I am calling on you all to see if you could find it in your hearts to donate a dollar or two to help my sister with the costs of the trip. I have left a PayPal Donate button on my sidebar, if you would like to help.  I never, ever thought I would ever ask this of anyone, and I certainly understand that you don't know me, and that you all have your own troubles and worries in life, but I just want to do what I can for my Sister and her family.

If you would like to help out in another way, you could post this link on your blog, facebook or twitter about my pattern sale, to help me advertise.

Anyone who advertises my sale can contact me to find out how to get 75% off any one pattern in the shop as well.
Thanks so much.

I am having a 50% off all patterns sale in my 
Etsy Shop
 with all the proceeds going to my Sister, so if you'd like to help out that way, I would greatly appreciate it.  Please use Coupon Code  SUPPORT50

Thank You

Patty was the winner of the finished object in my giveaway.  This is the style of hat that she requested for her daughter.  She was very pleased and I believe she is hinting on a Giveaway of her own.   Patty is a very talented stitcher and crafter, and her designs are lovely.  So don't waste any time, go on over and have a visit.
Thanks so much Patty.

Have a lovely day everyone.
