So I thought it might be interesting to see some of Snohomish! Snohomish is an antique town with many older homes and antique shops... really a beautiful place if you want to see some interesting homes... I took some pics yesterday, and thought I would share!

Signups for the Stitching Lottery end tonight at midnight :) At the time we have 6 members! The stitched pieces should be finished by July 4th! Let me know if you finish early, as we may send early if everyone finishes quickly. Remember your piece should be finished after it is stitched. Examples of finishing would be a pillow, pinkeep, biscornu, framed, purse, scissor keeper... etc. The possibilities are endless. We are such a creative group, that the end results will be exciting to see. Take a picture of your finished piece for future use, but do not post yet, as it is a surprise project! SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU ALL IN THE GROUP!!! Also, if you would like more information, click on the Keeping Track link on the top right of the site. Thank you all, and HappY StitcHing :)

Staci, Just wanted to say thank you! You have enabled me to get halfway through my mice and cheese biscornu! I had inventory at work this week, so I threw together a little kit to work on ... and I am more than halfway there now... the cheeses are finished, and the mice ... three more to go! :) SO by Sunday night ... a new biscornu finish will post! Thank you! Laura

First, I would like to brag a minute about a gift that I received earlier in the week! I finally got it 2 days ago, and then my computer was giving me grief... BUT I recieved a bookmark with some beads on it from Pixie! What a wonderful gift. I had seen them on her creative blog, and she was so nice to send one my way! We have such creative people in the group! Thank you Pixie!! It is beautiful If you are interested in looking at her blog you can link to her blog on Pixies creative corner blog link on the right.

It has been so quiet lately on my blog ... I hope everyone is doing good... enjoying summer, and getting some stitching time in. Today is a cool day ... and cloudy... I have my hot tea simmering as I post (cinnamon hot tea!) (love it) and my candles burning ... and my small stitching and sewing projects awaiting me as soon as I finish my tea! A perfect day when it is too cloudy for the beach - as far as I can tell! I also may stitch up a biscornu freebie with mice and cheese... When I finish that I will send the link with it!! Hope everyone is smiling !! HUGS Laura
