A New Design

Good morning!!! :-) I hope everyone has been doing well.  I just got home from a grueling 24 hour shift that I have ever had in my entire career at this company. All I can say is ugh....  Heck,  I couldn't even get my new embroidery floss on the shuttles I was so busy.  So, I apologize to those who sent me emails yesterday I will get to them today.  Luckily I had the prior 4 days off to rest up for this shift.  That being said... I couldn't wait to finish up my newest cross stitch design.  So I plugged away all weekend and it is finished.  AND... believe it or not it will be going to a well deserving home.  Yes that's right I'm not keeping it.  It will be going to a wonderful Mom of a soldier who is fighting for our freedom.  She has allowed me to make a pattern first before I ship it to her so that when I have time haha I can stitch up another. Not sure if I will sell this pattern unless there is interest.  The best part is she has so graciously allowed me to do a trade for one of her wonderful handmade items in exchange.  You absolutely need to check her out.  This is her blog My Glory Stars.  I can't wait!!!!  Then we found out we only live a county away from each other.  I'm trying to con her into teaching me how needle punch next. lol

So, here is my newest design...

I also finished off my other stitchery.  Like my coffee stain clothes pin marks?  Don't worry I fixed those right up.  I decided not to put this one in a frame.  I have yet to decide where it will go.  This is a Words of Praise design.

Well then I had coffee stain left over and decided to bathe one of my older quilts I made in it.  This quilt is going to a good home in Georgia.  Yes, I sold it too on Facebook.  I am in a selling mood!!!! lol

But sorry to say I didn't go through anything more to sell on here... yet.  That was my plan for today and tomorrow, but my uncle passed away and tonight is viewing hours and tomorrow is the funeral.  So, I won't be getting much done. That and I'm totally exhausted.  I'm doing the bare minimum of laundry at the moment today.

I have to admit I did go to another thrift store.  :-/  I thought that addiction had passed, but NO.  I got some really great stuff that I'll show you tomorrow.  Have a great day!!!!
Pin It

I bet it was really special to make that design for someone who it would really mean a lot too. Kind of makes it a little personal. Good job and a fun trade too. The Words of Praise design is really neat. Folk art is my favorite. Beautiful flag quilt. Glad you are selling your things:) Sorry about the hard shift. Hope you can take it easy for the rest of the week. -Steph-
