Stitch for Stash

Todays post is a total for January stitch for stash. And it is $0.00 spent. Yippi and this month was my birthday month

Cozying up with needlepoint and the furbabies.

 It sure has been frigid outside. So we've been hunkering down and stitching
Pam has been working on this cute kit she got from A Stitch Above Needlepoint in Cincinnati.
And here she is working on it. Its mostly all basket weave but really cute.
And here is a close up.

Lila gets a sofa bed.

 Pam, Jim, and I went to Christmas tree shoppes and look what we found. Lila tested it out. As you can see it met with her approval. She laid down and next thing I knew I heard several "AWE's". She stole everyone's heart. She is adorable after all. Well Lila approved and mommy couldn't resist and neither could daddy or auntie.
 Lila loves to be covered up when she is sleeping. Aren't these two cute together.
 Pam and I are stitching together in the family room. She is working on plastic canvas kit. Its a watering can with flowers.
 And look there she has the largest part done. Good job Pam.
 Lila is laying on top of Jim and beside mel in bed..silly doggie.:)

This is my ornament I bought several years ago to make for Jim. He is a pro drummer. 

Lila's newest sweater. She is such a doll.

Happy New Years Eve

 Here is my Dsil Pam sitting in the family room with us watching a Christmas movie off of Netflix.... And oh look Miss Kitty is taking a nap on Pam's legs...nice and toasty warm she is.
 Miss Lila says hello in her pretty Christmas sweater. We got it on clearance at Wally world.
 And this is something I've been hoping for since we brought Lila home with us. They are both cuddlers and I've been wanting them to cuddle up with one another. Miss K was already sleeping when Lila decided it was OK for her to be there. So Lila did the circle nesting thing and laid down next to her. It didn't last long though and Miss Kitty got up. Well its a start.
 Pam is having a blast
 I wonder how many adults who were kids in the 80s when cabbage patch kids were the craze still have their dolls. Well I have mine. This is Elizabeth. The year I got mine my mom sewed up a ton of really cute outfits for her. This particular one I had a matching outfit. Well I keep her out and change her clothes once in a while. I was out shopping and saw these really cute socks and so I got them for her. I'm curious to know who else still has their cabbage patch dolls.

Me Christmas Eve. The shawl was made by Pam for me a year ago for my birthday.
Here we are after church.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2015
