What I've been up to

Cross-stitching!  Yes, just what I need... another hobby, amirite?

Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery -- Halloween Spooky Sampler
But moving a library is seriously hard work, I'm talking pretty intense physical labor putting 215,000 books on the shelves and shifting them several times so they all fit... especially for people who generally work desk jobs.  So instead of sewing when I'm exhausted, which usually ends with picking out stitches over and over and a lot of cussing at my machine, I decided I needed something to do while I'm just sitting and relaxing.

It's seriously impossible to resist the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's samplers -- they are too damn cute.  I'm almost done with the Halloween Spooky Sampler, and in between weeks, I've been working on the Woodland Sampler... Yup I'm totally hooked!

Gah!  Those hedgehogs :)

Linking up with Thursday Threads @ 627 Handworks!


  1. I really like these and had not seen this designer before, thanks for sharing.

  2. I am in love with Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. Nice work.

  3. Really cute. I told my husband a few weeks ago that I wanted to do cross-stitch next. He said "next year. wait till next year."

  4. Your cross stitch is so darn cute. Love the Halloween sampler. My BFF cross stitches and I am in awe of it. I do not have the patience for it.


Thanks for your comment :) Have a happy day!
