Rotation update

I modified my rotation a little (list in sidebar). I was struggling to work on Shimmering Mermaid on Thursdays, so I decided to put her away for awhile and focus on something else. I guess that is not really the point of a rotation, but I also figure there really aren't any rules either. :) It's not like the cross-stitch police are going to knock on my door and serve a warrant because I shelved a project. :) In its place, I have started working on Lo How a Rose. I fell in love with this design when I saw it posted on Vonna's blog.

I have a couple of other updates to show...
This is Simple Gifts-Love. It's been awhile since I posted a picture because I have had to frog this one so much that I haven't really made a lot of progress. A fun note on this one...the design is charted with the initials PS in one of the motifs for Praiseworthy Stitches, I am assuming. Ironically, my middle and last initials are PS, so I just added a K and wahlah!

Here's Blessings and Kind Wishes. I enjoyed working on it yesterday. I kind of hated to put it away for a week.

I'm pulling out This Is the Day to work on tonight. Have you seen Nicole's WIP of this?? Gorgeous!! I love the color conversion that she is using. :)

In other news, I rushed right out and bought my very own copy of this and promptly watched it last night...

I bought my copy from Target, which had several free codes inside to download the movie and extras on iTunes. I was pretty excited about this! I like that I can download it to my iPod too. :)

We leave for Disney on Friday bright and early. We are so excited!! I have started packing. Oddly enough I can't decide what I want to take on to stitch on the road. I have a packing list that is a foot long, but that one little detail has yet to be decided. We have a 13 hour road trip ahead of us, so I want something relatively easy that I can put on Qsnaps. I normally stitch in hand, but I have a hard time stitching in hand when riding in a car. I'm sure I will figure out something between now and then.
Until next time!

Happy Stitching!



  1. Kellie, you're doing great on your rotation! And if you don't feel like stitching something, switch it, stitching is meant to be fun!;-)

    Have a wonderful trip to Disney!

  2. Hi Kellie! All of your wips are looking great! Oh, I'm definitely going to have to get the DVD soon. That's awesome about the iTunes download. They had that with one of the kids' movies that they got for Christmas.

    Have fun at Disney!! :)

  3. You are doing great on your rotation and your WIPs look fantastic. I did the same this weekend with This is the Day and pulled mine out after seeing the conversion. And it must have been a Twilight kind of weekend. I had to take my DD to a DVD release party and watch the movie with her. We got our copy at Target too (as the bookstore charged double) and I'll have to look for the iTunes download code. Thanks!

  4. Kellie, your WIPs are fab! I love 'em. Your Simple Gifts is gorgeous--love the initial serendipity. :) I remember stitching La D Da's Because Nice Matters, and I hadn't realized that the designer charted her initials in the design until I was working on the M for her last name. ROFLOL I'm just a tad slow on the uptake! Your B&KW looks great too! I say go for whatever works for you as far as the rotation is concerned. I do that, too, fret because I said I'd do one thing and then decided on another, but then realized that nobody really cares but me, and stitching is meant to be fun. So there.

    Twilight... be still my heart... We decided to wait for the Irish release of the DVD even though our DVD will play the US versions, too. I can't wait to see Edward again!

    Enjoy Disney & let us know what you decide to take on the road.

  5. Your stitching looks so wonderful!
    Have fun in Disney. We are going to Disneyworld in July this year. Can't wait to be there.

  6. Kellie! Beautiful wips!!

    hey! go to my site for an award:)

  7. This is the stitching police! We understand that you have deviated from your rotation! I'm sorry, ma'am, but we are going to have to take you in to the station!

    Enjoy the heck out of your trip--I'm pea green with envy. Here I sit, in the chilly spring, doing homework while you head for the warmth...with stitching! Waaaa! Enjoy!
