Namaste stitching finished!

I've finished the stitching on Ink Circles Namaste today, the red Root Chakra was last. Now to wash it, iron it and determine what size I'll cut them out (outside diameter) for sewing into a wall hanging. Now that these are done I'll finally get back to finishing my Dragonfly Pond project. I have the felt and the fabric for it, just have to finish the cross stitch and backstitching on the needlebook. I'm debating about doing a smaller Scissor Keep. The size called for in the kit is sort of huge for my scissors so I'm thinking I'll do a dragonfly and then a border and make a keep from that. After that is finished which should take till early next week I can FINALLY start on my secret project. All the stash has been gathered and I'm ready to start. I am so anxious to start although it'll be my first time using evenweave so I've thought about starting on something smaller to practice first.

I also found out recently that I'm going to be a great Aunt and so I am waiting for the mailman to bring a new chart as I'm stitching up a baby sampler for the new baby. As soon as the chart comes I'll post more on that.

Second to last Chakra finished...

One more to go and then the sewing begins! I still want to do this in a regular bellpull as it's been so much fun making this. The one thing I want to do is on the bellpull make the black the darkest color and then add a lighter color. I think it would look amazing like that.

Solar Chakra finished

I just am having a blast doing this pattern. The colors are so fun and bright. I finished the Solar Plexus Chakra a couple of nights ago.

Anniversary Present

My wonderful SO Steve got me a new sewing machine for our first anniversary. I have my mom's really nice older Necchi but I'm not really great at sewing or more importantly I don't know how to troubleshoot when something goes wonky. I wanted a really basic machine that I could play on and learn how to sew on with out worrying about messing up. Here it is, a Brother LS2250PRW Project Runway limited edition. I got a great deal on it online after some time shopping around. It arrived this morning from FedEx and I am stoked. I got it out of the box but haven't got it set up yet. Most of my sewing supplies are out in the garage behind all my other crafty stuff so I have to have my sweet husband go poke around for me.
