The Time Traveler #WIP #xstitch Start

And so it begins… (the color doesn’t look quite right in my picture. It is more pink than fuschia.) #joanelliott #lugana #thetimetraveler #timetraveler #2017starts #drwho #stitchmaynia #crossstitch #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #pointdecroix #fantasydyedfabrics from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2zgj84f

The Little Stitching Fairy #WIP #xstitch Update

When my eyes start showing fatigue, I guess I better call it a night. I spent the morning in my Fall Fairy and then the evening on my @joanelliottdesign Little Stitching Fairy. I just love this pattern. ❤️ I’m stitching her on my first piece of #handdyedfabricsbystephanie and I’m really enjoying plotting how to add in the Fairy Garden Alphabet letters for my girls.
I need to decide a way to add a letter for my son as well. Any recommendations?

Fall Faerie #WIP #xstitch Update

This periwinkle shade and deep purple is just amazing. Has to be my favorite color ever. I know some people dislike specialty stitches but I love combinations of half crosses, blends and deep textures. Just loving it. ❤️ #dimensionsgoldcollection #pointdecroix #ruthsandersonart #ruthsanderson #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #fallfairy #autumn #flosstube #crossstitch from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2A5bo4g

The Raven Queen #WIP #xstitch

Making progress and this tower is finished. While working on the border something isn’t quite adding up but I think it was the spire which is in negative space anyway so I think I will just leave it.
Really enjoying Mirabilia’s The Raven Queen on Sunny Dyes Raven painted opalescent fabric.

Guided Reading: Connect (Carson-Dellosa) {Review}

One of the exciting things that I’m jumping for joy to participate in this year is the Carson-Dellosa Brand Ambassador program. For this fall, the first set of goodies to arrive included a book called Guided Reading: Connect for Grades 3-4. As you may recall, my oldest kiddo is working on a generally 3rd/4th grade level and the one place we are struggling the most is with reading comprehension. SO yes! Hello, this is right what we need!   I’m one of those people that doesn’t like to take apart reproducible books. I’d rather just use it as is and keep it within the binding. While this isn’t a reproducible book, it is similar in the way that I have had to remove things from the spine, gasp!, but I am learning to adapt. *grin* This Ready to Go Guided Reading book is pick up and go and go well.

Weave Your Word in Me (Bible Study) {Review}

Overall, I am very satisfied in my curricular choices, however, I have still been on the search for an appropriate Bible Study for us and now I’m intrigued to try Kid Niche Christian Books and their book Weave Your Word in Me — Part 1 for review. From what I am told and what I can see thus far, this program is compatible with the following Bible translations:  KJV, ESV, NKJV, NIV, NASB, NABRE. From my college diploma Religious Studies I have collected quite a few translations. My daughter’s Bible is actually a HCSB, while mine is NIV and we have had no issues working through with these. This review period has been my first introduction to Kide Niche and I am intrigued to see what else they come up with in the future. What did we receive? For the purposes of this review, I received a package in the. . .

Keep Calm

My plans for today. Actually I was attempting to take a selfie and mention my plans to cross stitch the day away regardless thirst the shirt says quilt as it is my passion. But instead of taking a vertical photo my finger switches it to square and this is the result. I’ll take it. #craftblogger #quiltersofinstagram #quilting #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #flosstube from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2h3NGhA

Stitchy spot, stolen…

I set up my stitchy spot and told my girls it was time for school. The middle girl (6) has disappeared with her brother (3) and PBS on the Kindle Fire. The oldest (8) jumped in my spot with HER cross stitch and said, “it’s okay, you can read to me while I stitch. After all, that’s all sorts of educational.” #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #flosstube #stitchmaynia #crossstitch #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolingmama #bucilla #bucillakit #myfirstcrossstitch from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2gQGWDF
