Here is my new fascination. I went to a sewing expo in Cincinnati last June and found a booth called A Stitch Above and I fell in love with this neat looking needlepoint. I had not seen anything like it before. Then I was surprised to find, the other day a kit I acquired a few years back. It was just like what I had seen at the booth. I had also seen a few blogs I follow post pictures of Canvas Work which must be the same thing as what this kit is called-Textured Needlework. Anyhow I'm excited to give it a try. I love specialty stitches and this is what textured needlework is comprised of. Progress photos soon to follow....

Cheesy breaded chicken breast I made for the first time. Baked in the oven. It was super juice:-)
Here is a ladybug I stitched from the DMC mentors kit. I plan to make a cute ornament out of it to demonstrate what it can be turned into. Here is what the mentors kit comes like. The front has a very nice identification pin. Inside are six kits to teach people how to stitch and a booklet with more patterns.

Here is my latest design finished. I still need to finish it off. It will be an ornament done flat or as a pin keep. I got it from the blog Happiness is cross stitching.
Sorry for the side photo. Not sure what happened. This is from Jerimiah Junctions magazine Cross County Stitching. I plan to finish this on a eooden box top. I will have more info on ,y designs next time.....
Jim and I went to half price books today . we each had a half off coupon. I was blessed to find some very nice patterns.
My half off coupon went to purchase a $42 paper/fabric cutter by Fiskars and it was half off that because everything is at least half off original price there..hence the name....that brought it to $21 then half off with my coupon... We paid $10 and some change.

I received this lovely SB from Mellisa Cahill last week. Sorry for not getting it posted right away. I have been quite ill with kidney stones which in turn flared up my Multiple Sclerosis. Its absolutely beautiful Melissa. I just love it and it really put a smile on my face when I've been feeling so poorly. The back fabric is very nice and my favorite is the delicate cream braid around the ornament and little green velvet bow. Thank you so much.

Jim surprised me yesterday with these goodies. He also bought me a DVD with 10 movies on it but I already had it so he is going to exchange it for one we Dont have. The chocolates are made by a Christian company and in the white vellum on the box it has 1Corinthians 13:4. Inside are melt away chocolates half are dark and half milk chocolate....yummy:-)
Here is the card I made him for Valentines Day. He said he really loved it. It really blessed him. It was a kit that came from Shari and I still owe her a mug rug. Thank you Shari. I really am sorry I haven't gotten it to you. I promise I will this week plus some extras:-)
1 Corinthians 13
The Way of Love
13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
