Stitching, thank you, New Moon

I haven't gotten to stitch a whole lot lately. The evenings and weekends have been busy, and it has really cut into my stitching time. And as for blogging and reading/commenting on blogs, my husband has taken over my computer a lot of evenings and that has cut into my computer/blog time. Mind you, he has his own laptop. I just have a newer, faster Mac that we both love. It appears that if mine sits idle for very long, it automatically springs into his lap for the evening. However, I have worked on a few things...

I started Block 1 of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I couldn't stand it any longer. As soon as my threads came in the mail, I put in some stitches. (excuse my wrinkly pictures...I didn't take time to iron today).

I also started Jenny Bean Christmas. Not a lot of progress to show yet on this one.

I also put some stitches in Quakers and Quilts.

And I want to say a big public thank you to Jolene for the prize I won in one of her recent giveaways! I was thrilled!! I later told her that I was secretly hoping this would be the one of four prizes that would show up in my mailbox. I am hoping to stitch that gorgeous cardinal design in this one soon.
In non-stitching news, (and for my fellow Twilighters) I went with a group of twelve girlfriends to see New Moon Friday night. Oh. My. Goodness. I loved it! I loved the first one too, but thought this one was even better. New Moon was my least favorite of all the books, but I just thought the movie was spectacular. I have always been "Team Edward" but I am starting to see the appeal of the Jacob followers. LOL! I will be going back to the theater again to see this soon. I wanted to stay and see it again as soon as our showing ended, and I think I could have talked the eleven others into staying if there was a ticket left to be had in the tri-state area! Good times!

That's it for me...I am off to stitch and catch up on my DVR.
Have a good one.


  1. Fun post!!! I am going to start CHRH in January with a bunch of other stitchers. We will get together once a month to stitch. Wish you lived nearby and could come!!!!!

    I got the BBD Christmas book too!! I want to do the one on the cover. I will schedule that for 2011. I love the cardinal too. Great book to just ponder and dream over.

  2. Hi Kellie,

    Congratulations on the win. What a great prize! I just love that book.

    I look forward to seeing your progress on the 2 new starts. Both are great charts!

    Have a good week!

  3. Lots of starts - which I love!

    I, too, am working on Q&Q and just got JB in the mail this past week. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on both.

    Congrats on the win!

  4. Ooh, how wonderful it all is! I am also a coveter of that cardinal design (but I think I want their september and october books even more!!)

  5. I cannot wait to start CoHRH after the holidays!! I have had to "hide" it from myself to stave off the urge....Good looking though and I also want to do JB Sampler!~ We are definitely on the same page!~ Faye

  6. Beautiful stitching and so glad you liked New Moon. I'm hoping to get to see it in the next couple weeks. Meredith

  7. Lucky you, I want to go see New Moon, soon, real soon. I have heard so many people say it is soooo good. Maybe on black Friday I can go catch a matinee or something.

    You have a lot of fun designs you're rotating stitching on. I just got the JB pattern this weekend. I am trying to decide if I want to customize or should I say personalize the colors or stitch it according to the pattern. How are you stitching your JB? Are you changing any colors?

    I am happy to hear you received the "right" prize for "you"!!! You just never know if the recipient already owns the pattern you are sending or not.....I guess it was meant to be for you, Kellie.

    Looking forward to seeing your updates and as always happy stitching!

  8. I'm glad to see your start on CHRH, Kellie. I just won that chart in Jolene's giveaway and can't wait to start it after the holidays. Can I ask what fabric you are using?

    You have some lovely projects going on :)

  9. I love the new starts.
    And Jolene is such a sweetie.
    Going to see New Moon this weekend

  10. Great new starts, Kellie! All fun designs, too. Congrats on your win--I love that cardinal design, too. Actually, I love everything in that book!

    Wasn't New Moon incredible!? I am the same, that was my least favorite book in the series, so I really wondered what I would think about the movie. Then, I worried that my anticipation for the movie would make me not like it so much. I am so glad that my worry was for naught, because OMGosh, I loved it!! I'm the same, too--still Team Edward but I can see the appeal of Jacob. I can be a scary old lady perving on both of them, I guess, but my #1 man will always be Edward. ;)

    Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  11. More great projects! If CaHRH were sitting here waiting to be started, I'd have to start it also.
