Stitchalong bug


I guess it was just a matter of time - I got bitten by the stitchalong bug. I'm not usually a gnome person (I can't watch that new gnome movie trailer without groaning) but this gnome is pretty undeniably adorable...

I started this little guy on day 2 of my flu, before it really laid me up on day 3 and 4. But now that I'm better, I hope to show you a bit more of him soon... :)

Inspiration: Peach-pink

Inspiration: 1/24/11 - Peach-Pink

Pics above from the following talented stitchers:
1. Octopus by glazedangel101; 2. Stickros 2 och 3 by ericaSvala
3. Stitching.. just because.. by Carina; 4. Peachy Keen by moxiedoll77

I've been stuck inside with a cold and cough which is rather uninspiring, so I thought I'd start putting together some daily inspiration mosaics. I really want to resurrect my old Mac so I can enjoy editing pics again - I love my PC laptop, but I'm never confident about the colors I see being representative between Mac and PC. Anyway, here's my favorite shade of peach-pink, as interpreted by many talented people in the Flickr Embroidery pool. :)

Start of new year and start of new things


There's something about this time of year that feels like new beginnings all around...

Just a few of the neighborhood pets I've been photographing. I've made more hats, scarves, and stitching, but bear with me as I get the photos added... :)

In the meantime here's a hat I had to unravel:
knitting I had to undo, anyway

And some New Year's sparklers:

Happy New Year!
