Been Stitch'N & new treasures!!!

For awhile now I have tried different crafts without finding something that I truly loved. I use to scrapbook with a true passion in my heart for it. Although I still do love to scrapbook I was no longer in love with doing it like I use to be.

So when I tried making my first cross stitch pillow tuck I felt that pitter patter in my heart again. I knew that cross stitching was my new love. I have been scouring the internet for free patterns (because I am cheap and broke! lol) and made a couple of things for swaps or gifts. I finally made something for myself to keep. I made this making my own design. I think it turned out pretty good for my first own design. I just have to find a few minutes to stitch it close.

I am working on a piece now that I am going to be posting in a giveaway hopefully this coming weekend if I can get it done time.

What have you been working on?


Here are some recent items I picked up at the thrift store when they were having a 60% off sale. The big red ladle has already found a home in my kitchen, the wisk broom (is there another name for it?) is going to be hung on my back porch, the cross stitch fabric is going in my stash for future projects. I am not sure where the wooden crate is going yet, but I just love the old paint on it. The wash board/shelf is going to have a makeover then be hung in my laundry room. I will have to post tomorrow the other two great items I found since my camera needs charged.


  1. Tasha - Hi! I know what you mean about scrapbooking - I used to love to scrap and now it is more like a chore to keep up with my kids' books. I love to cross stitch too - have you been to The Stitcherhood? Google that she has several free patterns on her website and blog. Your little whisk broom appears to be hand made, looks like the ones the broom makers make at Sauder Village where I work. ~Ann

  2. I too was a major scrapbooker and I do still from time to time make pages and handmade cards BUT it doesn't make my heart pitter patter like Prim Crafts do....Love your x stitch pillow tuck and your ts goodies are fantastic finds !

    Willow - Thanks hun. I do hope to get back into scrapbooking soon. After 6 years I really should get my wedding album done. lol
