Ultimate Mini


This Ultimate Mini is a great frame for stitching small projects.  This will be great for stitching one of the the Blackbird Designs stockings that I want to do for a Halloween exchange. It is 10 inches wide and perfect.  

The Ulitimate Mini can also be used with a clamp for Q Snaps and Embroidery hoops too.  The clamps can be made as an accessory  I love mine!

 For more information on getting the Ultimate Mini go to  www.woodentreasures.info

Wooden Treasures Tabletop Stand

This is the tabletop stand that Wooden Treasures makes.  This photo was taken by a woman who got this and so I wanted to show it here.   My frame is like this one that he made for me but I also have the lapstand so I can stitch in my recliner.   It is very sturdy and wonderful to use!

My Husband in Front of His Shop

This is my husband Jerry with his shop.  I love this photo and since I have no new stitching photos to share, I wanted to put this one up on my blog.  We love living out here in the Piney Woods of Texas!

Happy Anniversary to the love of my life Jerry Littlefield

Happy Anniversary to my dear sweet  husband Jerry.    Today, May 16, we have been married for 16 wonderful happy years together.  Last night, he surprised me with this that he made for me.  Talk about touching my heart, this is something he made for me in the past two weeks and seeing what he said here has put a glow and smile on my face.  I am so touched with what he put in this and what he said and I can't imagine anything nicer than this and want to keep it always.  He is quite the graphic designer and just like his profile said when I found him online  over 16 years ago, he is a sensitive and caring man and I love him so very much.   He knows what touches my heart and I feel so lucky to have found him back in 1997.

Ruthy Rogers Work in Progress and Stem Stitch


Here is my first attempt at stem stitching on Ruthy.  I am finally feeling I am getting it and like the way it looks.  I just couldn't resist trying it and it really will open up new projects for me to try.  I have wanted to learn to do this for awhile and this SAL has been the perfect time.  I just love this project so much too and the colors are gorgeous in it.  Everyone is doing such a beautiful job and this is really quite enjoyable.  Pardon the shade and sun showing on the photos as I wanted to take them outside and decided to just let the shade and sunshine show up on these.

Mary Bailey 1818 Work in Progress

This is my latest progress photo of Mary Bailey 1818. I am just really enjoying this and getting closer still to starting the brick house. This project has such nice bright colors in it. It is habit forming to work on it. The tree trunk looks a little more orange in the photo but it is more brown with a hint of rust in it. It is DMC 780 but I had a hard time trying to get the true color. It really isn't so orange really.  One more shrub to stitch and I can start the red house.   I can hardly wait!
