I Was Suppose To Be Yesterday… On The Witchy Stitchy Blog Hop…

It’s not even an oops, I forgot… I blundered and put the wrong bags on the living room couch for my hubby to take to work. I have to tell you the whole story for you to understand why I goofed up so badly. You see, when we lived in Italy, and I learned about the row by row experience, I was lucky enough to have several people send me some row patterns back in 2015. By that time, I was teaching Sarah how to sew, and had created a group of moms who also lived on and around the base who liked to sew. We’d meet at various houses once a week. It was one of the few times that I actually got out and about. It  was an experience I’ve always treasured. With those rows, those moms and I would create table runners and then give them to the gift shop on the base. It was pretty cool as people who made crafty type items could sell there stuff in the shop and the shop took a small commission. We had decided as a group that the table runners money would go to the school library because it was continuously low on supplies for the kids. I learned this when I wanted to get rid of some glue sticks I ordered on Amazon and they were the wrong ones, so I offered them to anyone who wanted them for free, and the school librarian contacted me. Thus… when I left, I left the patterns with the woman so they could continue to carry on the tradition we had already created. To this day, I still send row by row patterns that I collect.

On the 10th Day of Christmas at the Christmas Caroling Row Along…

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongThank you to everyone who has wished me well with my wrist. Some of you know I will have to have surgery, which is scheduled for tomorrow. I have no idea how I am going to do without coffee tomorrow morning, but in order to have surgery, I can’t eat or drink anytime past midnight… :/

Today is the last day for patterns from bloggers, and you do have one week to finish getting them downloaded before this event ends. Next Tuesday is Show and Tell day and this will give you an idea of different ideas you can do with your rows. I can’t finish my project, but what I will do instead is offer a tutorial on tricks and tips when using buttons, charms and making little things to hang on your projects… It’s a cool lesson I think you will enjoy.

I do not want to write a 2nd post today just for my second row, so I am going to condense it into this post. You will find my row and download inside this post with the giveaways.

CCRAL Winners For Sept 19 and CA Winners for Sept 26

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongEach passing day gets us closer and closer to Christmas and I keep thinking how will I get the 3 wedding gifts I need to make by then done plus all of my Christmas gifts. This past weekend, I was unpacking a few of the boxes that have just been sitting in the living room for a bit. These boxes turned out were boxes that were packed in Germany for our move to Italy and then never unpacked. I found some beautiful cashmere shawls I’d purchased while we lived there and had been visiting the Czech Republic that weekend. It was a fun trip to Prague that I really fell in love with, an old city, with so much history and gorgeous buildings and statues. If you have the opportunity to go to Prague I’d recommend it highly. Anyway, about the shawls, they were originally intended for Christmas gifts, so now I’ve found part of my Christmas gifts for this year. It will be exciting to be able to finally give them away. I’m sad that I had forgotten about them, but am happy they have been found.

On the 4th Day of the Christmas Caroling Row Along…

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongAre the rows this year just fantastic? It has been a wonderful experience to see and hear what you think of the rows, but it was even better to watch them come together over the summer.

That’s the advantage you get when you are participating as a designer during this event.

Everyone had the opportunity to see each other’s rows start to come together and so we all have an idea of what is coming.
