TUSAL and 2nd Part of Weekend



Today is the first TUSAL. I thought I would explain how I do my Snip-Its (for my non stitcher friends the snip-its are those left over bits of floss when you cut the thread) a little bit. By my stitching table I keep this adorable little jar. My friend Kathy from Ohio made this little ceramic jar for me. I love frogs so she put them on there for me. When I have a snip-it (Yes I saw the escaped one after I took the picture haha) I throw it in here.




Then this morning for the TUSAL I put my threads into their new home my 2012 TUSAL Jar. The picture didn't show very well with them inside so here is my 2012 Snip-its so far. I had quite a bit extra since I had to frog so much of the snowman. Oh well haha.

I told you Saturday I went to my favorite store House of Stitches. Here is my wonderful stash haul from there. I got 10 pieces of fabric I needed. Plus 4 seasonal designs from Cricket Collection. When I see all these beautiful fabrics I can't wait to put x's on them.

The last picture I have to show you is a gift from my bestest friend. Amber has stitched before but not like us obsessed stitchers. I think I've rubbed off on her a little bit cause she started stitching again after a long break. Anyway she did me this beautiful dolphin and even decorated the frame. I will cherish this forever! Thank you Amber!!!!
