A stitch and NYC

Well back from a fabulous weekend in NYC thanks to my mom and my sister who made it possible. I have never walked that much in my life and Madison was such a trooper keeping up with us. Here's a quick stitch I did. It was a freebie from the Sampler Girl and I started it there and finished it up today. I will probably finish it into a pillow at some point.
 So this is the reason we were in NYC. Madison's birthday present from my parents was to go to the American girl store there. This is Madison in front of the store with her doll and they had their matching dresses on. So cute!!! We had brunch there with other little girls and dolls. We were in a room called the Daisy room. It was adoreable. They have little seats for the dolls and they bring a little tea cup on a saucer for them. The food was very yummy. We then went shopping for Madison and Bella, is her doll's name. She had so much fun. We then went and did more sightseeing.  We went to Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square, Chelsea Market, Bryant Park, St Patrick's Cathedral, the Today Show and probably a few other places I can't think
of at the moment.
 This picture I had to take because my girl loved having her name on a street sign.
 This is part of St Patrick's Cathedral. We went inside and it is just beautiful.
This is Madison,(Bella of course) my sister,  my mom and myself on a buggy ride through Central Park. It was so nice and the weather was great for it. I am amazed that there have been so many movies filmed there. It was so fun!!

Not sure if my husband will let me leave without him again. Last October when I was in Virginia our furnace broke. This time it was our hot water heater. Hmmm! Coincidence!! Still have a fridge and stove that are getting up there.

Welcome to my new followers and I hope to be back next week with something to show.

Happy Stitching!

A little of this and that

 Hello all,

I have been inspired by some blogs(Myra to name one) with their project bags so I thought I would play a little bit and came up with this little bag thanks to Myra. I am going to use it for my LHN ornaments. I will kit a few up at a time and keep them in here. I am working on a few different ones so stay tuned.
This is my progress on Blessed and i just adore her. I cannot wait to finish her. She is so adoreable I will probably leave her out all year.

Not much to show for some reason. I am stitching but I just must not be finishing things as quickly as I thought. The weather has been abnormally nice so I have been outside beginning yard work and things. I am usually not doing it this early.

I am off to NYC for the weekend with mom, daughter, and sister. Should be fun and I have a project or 2 with me for the evenings. I have never been so I will be back to show some pictures next week.

Keep your needle to thread and keep stitching!!

Some New Stash

 I love new stash! Who doesn't right!! I went to Expressions in Needleart today with my mom. We made a morning of it and went there and this is what I got. Lizzie Kate Summer Boxer, A Lizzie Kate Halloween pattern, Some reindeer ornaments pattern, and some fabric to do a scissor fob. To the left is the newest LHN ornament-Tree Farm- which I was very excited because that came to us in the mail today after we got back from our shopping. Yeah!!
 We also stopped at this antique store which I think I am hooked. I wanted ALOT in there. I did just come away with these beauties. Some spools of thread and this really cute frame. The bird is cute in there but I am probably going to put stitching in it.
Last on the list for today is my new stitching bag. It is still a little wrinkled b/c I just received it yesterday and it hasn't had a chance to be broken in yet. I just couldn't wait to show you. I get The Stitchery catalog and saw this bag and knew I had to have it. I told my husband that I had to have this bag. His first response was "What's wrong with the 10 other bags you have?" But this one is different, so I batted my eyes and he couldn't resist so here it is. It's got cool pockets on the sides for all my little stuff. LOVE IT!!

Thank you for all the nice comments on my Easter stitches. I really appreciate it.

Happy Easter Early

Just wanted to show my few easter smalls I just finished. They are both by Lizzie Kate and really stitched up rather quickly and oh so cute.

There are a  few other things I am working on but am not able to post them yet. I will soon.

Thursday I am taking a trip to Expressions in Needleart in Canandaigua. I will post my new stash so everyone can see what I got. I get excited going to a needlework shop since there isn't a good one real close to me, I don't get there very often.

Happy Stitching Everyone!
