A Peek in the Cauldron and A Must Do

Well, let's just jump right into Christmas, shall we? Nevermind that pesky Halloween post just one down, OK? :p

I need to stitch this for myself this winter season. I finished the Red Snowman earlier this year and just love it-no I haven't framed it!

So, I may do that, or some other wintry sweet piece. Doesn't have to be Christmas per se. Speaking of that, I have a sneak peek of something I'm working on now and I have no idea if it'll be done soon or not! My work has kept me so so busy that I haven't had time to stitch hardly at all. I may need to shop around for a stitcher, as I have several other designs ready to go, but when they'll see the light of day I don't know.

So there it be, so to speak. I have lots of little visions, lots of designing in my head and lots of things in progress on the computer as well. Very little stitching. Anyone want to point me in the direction of how to win a lottery? That would free up a boatload of time, I tell you! I watched a great show on how lottery winners screw up their lives (not all of course!). Is it bad to say it made me feel a bit better? You truly must have your act together regardless of how much you have or do not have. That's the simple lesson. Stay away from credit, save your hard earned money and you can enjoy your "wealth" at any stage of the game! (but I still wanna win the lotto dangit.)

Sorry for the rambling. We're in the midst of paying off bills and I tend to wax philosophic about it, lol. Anyways, I need to go spend some time in blogland visiting all my buddies. I've picked up a few more followers---THANKS GUYS!--- and need to add them to my blogroll and check out their blogs if they have them. Boy, blogging really shows you that the world is full of the neatest and most interesting people. Get lots of stitching in this weekend and maybe some holiday decorating if you can--I hope to put a few stitches in and show something more than a pitiful peek next week! Ha! Till then,


  1. Winning the lottery is on my list of things to do. LOL I just know I would never run out of things to do if I had all the free time winning would allow me. I want to win the super big one. So I could take alot of people with me to the stay at home or travel and create world. Giggle.

  2. What a cute snowman, I haven't seen that kit yet.....maybe I will visit Shepherds Bush tomorrow so I can get one to add to my stash. The red stitches looks like a snow cap with a snowflake on it.....maybe for a snowman? If I win the lottery, I will gladly share the wealth with my blogger friends!

  3. I love your sneak peek picture. I always love teasers - gets my mind to whirling. I love your snowman pic too - hard to believe it is almost Christmas time already. Will be here before you know it.

  4. If only there were more hours to the day! I love Green Snowman too! Can wait to see the big reveal!

  5. Oh I love these "colourful" snowmen by SB. They look so great on the different fabrics.
    Winning the lottery, also a dream of mine. But if I want to win I'll have to play first, lol.

  6. I can't wait to see the new design!! If you get bogged down shoot me an email I'll gladly help out a fellow stitcher.

  7. I love the snowman ;-)

    No recipe to won the lottery : I'd like to win as well ;-) Hope to see the new design soon: you are very talented Tammy !!!

  8. Loved your Red Snowman and the Green Snowman (I'm guessing that is the name of this little guy) will be a great companion piece.

    I wish that I could win the lotto too, however I rarely buy a ticket so my chances are next to nil.

    Hope work settles down so you you find a bit of time to stitch.

  9. Tammy let me know about that lottery thing, k? I feel your pain...never enough to pass around my house, let me tell ya. Hey if you need to shop around for a stitcher let me know! I used to model stitch for Pat Carson YEARS ago and she is really picky (in a good way) about her models. I wish I had enough moo-la to support my bad habits of stitching, TKD, stitching, kids braces...oh did I mention stitching?

  10. If you're looking for a model stitcher, send me an e-mail and let me know your requirements. I've always wanted to try this, and I loved your first pattern, Witchy Brew.

  11. You know, quite often I tell God that I would be very humble were I to win the lottery. I would only keep, say, maybe a million, but I'd give the rest to charities, to my family, heck, I'd even give some to the in-laws. (MIL would get a penny but I'd give more to the rest of them...). Alas, it hasn't happened yet. Good luck with getting your visions out there--it must be frustrating to have the talent trapped in your mind, so to speak! I know what you mean about paying off bills, etc. I just keep saying to my kids to not take out credit. I hit 18 and got a bunch of credit cards and into a big mess. We paid them off but it was a hard road. We have things set up to get paid off every month, which is nice, but it takes learning that I can't necessarily have everything I want right away. Sometimes it sucks being an adult, LOL.

    Love the new SB start!

  12. I could have twice the number of hours in a day and I still wouldn't have enough time!

    I love the snowman.

  13. Yup, winning the lottery would be great, in the meantime, the cute green snowman looks like a fun alternative. Looking forward to seeing more of the sneak peak you gave us and to seeing what other you decide to start next.

  14. Can't wait to see your new sampler! How are things going with your designing adventure?
    I love this green snowman. It should be a really fun stitch.
    Take Care!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
