Mojo–part 3

If these next 3 posts seem a bit disjointed it’s because I’m having a terrible time with blogger. When I try to post, using Windows Live Writer, it doesn’t like the amount of pictures I’m posting and just crashes during the upload. Also, the blogs on my sidebar aren't updating automatically like they used to and I can't add or delete blogs on my sidebar. Can you hear me grumbling? If you’ve had the same issues and have managed to fix them, PLEASE let me know.

Okay….on the with rest of the show.

I love my hand stitching at night and worked on getting this Valentine goody finished in time for February.

It’s from Primitive Stitches. I just love her patterns.

My friend, Patty, got the frame for me when she visited Primitive Gatherings last summer. I’ve been rotating the stitchery designs in the frame. Next up will be this one which I just finished.

My buddy, Karen, at My Red Farmhouse has a selling blog, The Primitive Thread where she offers darling projects a couple times a month. (She’s just scaling back a bit and I think she’s decided to post them on the first and third Wednesday of the month). Make sure you check them out because they are cute and do-able. And VERY reasonably priced.

Anyway, when she posted this next project, I realized I had the pattern already and I certainly have the cottons and wool (get it? Cottons n Wool? Hehe) to make my own. So, thanks Karen for the motivation.

The pattern is from Lori Smith as part of her Quilted Pictures designs.

Right now I’m working on the “Autumn Quilt” from Heart to Hand. I just need to applique some wool on the borders and this baby will be finally finished!

And finally….when I was in full force organizing mode, I came across a cross-stitch project that I had started quite a few years ago. It was more than 1/2 finished, so I decided it needed to be completed.

It’s called “Button up your Overcoat” by 4 my Boys designs. Not sure if it’s still in print. (that’s how long ago I started this puppy)! All it needs is a frame and voila…another completion!


I’ve got one more project in the works but you’re gonna have to wait to see it till I’m finished with all the applique.

Hugs, Anne

Oh everything is so wonderful! I just love coming here and seeing all the goodies.

I think most of us are having a time with Blogger not updating our sidebars and I can't for some reason add any more blogs to my sidebar so that I can see who has updated!

Hi Anne, so good to see posts from you-what a feast of delightful projects-you certainly have your mojo! It must be that beautiful haven you have to work in:)
All your projects are so inspiring-I have 4 more blocks of the Autun quilt to do and you have motivated me to get it out. I have been bad and started her new pattern!
Love your blanket crane on the stairs with the quilt-awesome!
Looking forward to seeing what you working on now, especially since you mentioned applique:)
Have a great weekend,

Love that you have your mo-jo back, Anne! I can't believe all the wonderful projects you've finished! After seeing your Autumn Quilt, I need to stop staring at my pattern for so long, I need to get moving! Have you switched to the new Blogger interface? It helps a lot with some of the issues. Your photo storage might be used up as well - I had that problem - I use Picassa - and had to pay Google $5 to add extra storage. After that - no problems at all.

Karen said...

Whoa baby your on fire, lol. Love love love all of the finishes you've shown in the 3 posts. Yes I'd say you have your mojo back. You know it never really went away - just took a little break :). As always your an inspiration and a Peach :).

Hugs - Mrs. Farmhouse

I love your snowman...You'd think with all the winter I have --I would get tired of them---this one is so cute....

Lori said...

So sorry you are having blog problems. It should be fun but when you struggle to get it right , it isn't!
You have been busy!! What fantastic projects you have posted. I love the one going up your stairs. It is a neat way to display it.

Colleen said...

Loving all your projects! I am in love with Autumn House. I need to order that pattern. It is my favorite in the series :o)

Yvette said...

You weren't kidding! Your mojo sure is back and I am very happy about that. Everything is just beautiful and I can't pick a favorite.

Anne all your projects are beautiful. I love your fall quilt

Karen said...

I am a fan of the Primitive Stitches designs too. I don't think I have the pattern for the one you did but several others.

Beth said...

All your projects look sooo good, but I am totally in love with your Autumn quilt. You found a MOJO explosion!
