Tribal Dolphin and Giveaway

Here is Tribal Dolphin from White Willow Stitchery. It is part of a large series of tribal pieces from White Willow. This was my first time stitching one of their designs it was a little cumbersome due to the design was split between 2 pages.  I sent this off to Quilts for Older Children and Adults as part of a SAL for Love Quilts Brazil.  I love cross stitching for worthy organizations.



As for the giveaway if you would like this pattern and a surprise pattern just leave a comment below and share the news with a friend.  I will pick a winner on 13 June. 

Enjoy!!

February Smalls Finish

Wow, it has been a crazy month in my household.  It started by us losing our main computer, one Friday night it just died, motherboard gone, boo hoo!!  My hubby was able to save some of the files stored on our hard drive -- no we did not back up to the cloud or anything else for that matter.  It took us two weeks to decide on a replacement.  We had one in mind from Best Buy, it was not in stock, in store or on-line. So we walked out of there with two new laptops for the kids, not sure how that happened.  Finally, hubby was able to custom order the machine he wanted from HP.  So now I have a lovely HP Envy on my computer table with Windows 7, which is why we went with HP.  Now if I can get Microsoft to stop sending the pop-ups to upgrade to Windows 10, life would be perfect.  My kids have Windows 10 on their laptops, as for me I am sticking with 7.  I digress!!

It is time for the monthly Small check in hosted by Heather, owner of the Stitching Lotus blog.  To learn see more small check it out here.  I have two smalls to share this month both were started in early 2015 as part of the SoCal Debbie CJC Challenge.  Now I am happy to cross them off my brain's "To Be Finished" list.

January Finishes for Q4OAC

In January I finished and shipped off the three pieces below to Q4OAC Yahoo group.  I still have two more to finish by April 15th.   The Floral Teacup was a freebie found here.   It was one I started last year for the Crazy January Challenge honoring SoCal Debbie. To fit the size requirements for the quilt I have to eliminate the word at the top of the pattern.

January Smalls Finish

Again this year I have joined Smalls SAL hosted by Stitching Lotus.  My goal it to post a small each month, last year I ran out of steam in August. 

This month I share with you a very sweet piece, Season's Greetings, from Little House Needleworks.  It is stitched on a piece of 28ct Laguna that had been tea dyed.  I will finish it into an ornament later this year.  I especially love this one, it reminds me of my dear MIL, she loved cardinals.



Enjoy!!
