Llama Silhouette Cross Stitch Silhouette

All you fellow bloggers out you have a day where you KNOW you need to write something, but you just can't wrap your brain around it?  Well, I'm having one of those days.  Instead of sitting here wanting to bang my head against my laptop trying to thinking of something witty to say about my latest silhouette design, I'm going to keep it short, sweet and to the point.

This is my new silhouette design.  It is a llama.  I named him Llarry (yes, with 2 Ls and 2 Rs) while I was stitching him.  He was created using DMC #310 on 28 ct. "DaVinci" by Picture This Plus.

If you like him, you can buy him at any of these places.

Until the next time, when hopefully I'm felling more literary...Happy Stitching!

Stitch From Stash - March 2016 Recap

Oh March, why were you so mean to me?!?!

Opening Balance = ($21.76)
Finishes = $0!!!
Purchases = $54.90
Balance Forward = ($76.66)

I have to honestly say, I don't remember when the last time was I had ZERO finishes for a month.  Not even a simple greeting card!  All I can say is work, travel, and the "kids" visiting me here in Vegas for 8 days left me basically no time for stitching.  I'm looking forward to getting back to "normal" in April and having more stitching & creative time again.

I honestly don't know what happened.  I went to the Stitches From The Heart stitching camp/retreat in San Antonio and somehow when I got home there were some gorgeous Picture This Plus fabrics in my stitching bag and some money missing from my wallet.  Do you think I could have been sleep purchasing?  LOL!  

Honestly though, I was trying to hold off until the PTP Christmas in July sale for a re-stock, but saw some gorgeous fabrics I just had to have!  I picked up pieces of Orange Creme, Crystal Pickled and Phoenix.  They will be fabulous with future designs!  And to the lovely ladies at PTP...if you ever happen to read my blog, the designer wouldn't mind "sampling" some of your fabrics for you.  *cheesy grin*

Oh well, what can I say...I guess red is my color.  Someday I'll be in the black.  We'll just have to see how quickly I make it.  April is a new month and finishes WILL be completed to offset my spending.

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!

Design Model Sell-Off

One of the downsides of living in a one-bedroom apartment is not having a lot of closet/storage space.  Couple that with not wanting to have a bunch of "clutter" around (blame that on parents that are hoarders), means I'm running out of room for all my design models.  

I've been holding onto my models for the pasts couple of years in case some retail shop out there wanted to do a trunk show of my designs, but that hasn't happened.  That means good news for any of you that have seen one of the wonderful finishes done by SnowBerry NeedleArts and wanted it for yourself. :)

Yesterday I listed 40 different pieces in my Etsy shop and re-opened it for one week only to try to find new homes for some of them so I'll have room in my closet for new models.  My shop will be open through Sunday April 10th and will be closed (or technically put on "vacation mode") until the next time I do a sell-off.
