Some Of This, A Little Of That

Lots of craftiness going on around here lately.  In a post last year, I whined talked about how I couldn't get started putting together the scrapbook I wanted to make about our London trip.  Some scrapbooker friends advised me to organize my materials and decide exactly what I wanted to put into the book.  I did just that this week, and finally started scrapbooking.  It's looking good, but certainly not the professional look that my talented friends achieve in their scrapbooks.  But I like it and have given myself a finishing goal for this project -- December 15.  Plus, I'm really enjoying doing this!  Take a look at the creative "organization".
On the stitching front, progress was made on "Folk Eggs".  I stitched quite a bit on egg #7 while watching a particularly bad baseball game.  I must say that I love Prairie Schooler.
I think I'm in the framing mode.  During a little fit of organization I discovered that I have some cross stitch finishes that need framing or further finishing (like ornaments).  One of these is "Seasonal Sampler" and I already have the frame for it.  So just getting the supplies out to frame it might propel me to do just that!  Do you think?  I also need to get online to my favorite framing supplier and order some items to frame a couple of other things.
And finally, not crafty at all, is sweet Cosmo taking a morning nap on the big cat bed.  Not a care in the world.


  1. Your scrapbooking is looking great! I hope I can be as successful in stitching during football watching (well, listening for me, haha)today as you were during the baseball game. Kudos to you!

  2. The eggs look great and your cat looks very comfy:)

  3. I love watching the eggs come along! I can be fairly productive if The Man is playing video games solo. :D

  4. Your folk eggs are beautiful! I am like you I have done some scrapbooking but don't feel I do a very creative job at it. Have fun working on it I am sure it will look great when you are done.
    Happy Stitching

  5. Those folk eggs looks amazing. All those bright colours looks really pretty on black fabric.

  6. Give that sweet Cosmo a kiss for me! I love a fuzzy grey kitty.
