Clark's Book No. 180

Coats & Clark's Book No. 180-2

This is a sweet pattern by Coats and Clark Book No. 180.  I just love embroidering flowers.  I am also providing the pages that tell you how to embroider it.  I just love following old patterns it makes me think outside of the box on stitches that I might not have used before.

Have fun and Happy Thanksgiving.

Transfer Tuesday

Coats & Clark's Book No. 143-6Coats & Clark's Book No. 143-7

These two are ones I hope to actually embroider in the near future.  They are from Coats & Clark's Book No. 143-6.  I really like all the details on the flower just trying to figure out the best transfer method so I do not blur all my lines together. 

My favorite method is the sulky transfer pen but it is a bit thick.  I do also like the pencil but my hand always hurts after using the pencil and that is a lot of transferring. 

Does anyone else have a better method?


Sorry this is late I had lots of problems trying to post this.  I lost it 3 times and finally gave up and decided to give it one last shot.  Crossing my fingers.

Transfer Tuesday???

Coats & Clark's Book No. 129-4

I know it is not Tuesday sorry about that.  I caught a cold and have been out of sorts for the last couple of days and today as well.  I had cold medicine I walk around in a cloud.  For a belated Veterans Day pattern enjoy the cross stitch pattern. 

This comes from Coats & Clark's Book No. 129.

Transfer Tuesday

Workbasket Pattern

Tuesday is not over yet better late than never right?  This girl is a favorite of mine.  She reminds me of that scene in Fiddler on the roof when the Russians put bottles on their heads and dance.  I love that scene.  I hope you have a good what is left of Tuesday.

Who Said Disney on Ice is Just for Kids??

My outfit from Disney on Ice

I would have never said that ..... actually I did. when I agreeded to go with Brian's family this weekend.  I said we are going to be the only ones without children and I was right.

We still had a blast look at the cool tulip hat and some flashy glasses I bought.  They have three different light speeds.  I wore them for part of the show but they just kept steaming up so I could not wear them the entire time.  I did wear them on the way home and while at home hence the picture taken in my PJs. (the peace sign I have no idea why I do it, it is just my signature in all my pictures since I was 8)

The ice skaters were amazing.  I love watching ice skating and ballet (can not wait for the Olympics).  Brian and I hope to maybe actually go to see Nutcracker in Seattle this Holiday season we will see it all depends if I can get time off.  I started a new job and it is pretty much just me covering everything in the office so we will see how that all works out.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
