Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

2015 Stitching

It's been a slow year for me on the stitching front but hopefully that will change in the next few weeks.  That is if I ever get to the end of the moving boxes but Mark has sworn that he'll put up the shelving in my craft room this weekend so that will allow me to sort thru the last 30 or 40 boxes.  I collect crafting supplies, bits and pieces of things and craft books/magazines  almost as quickly as you can blink an eye.

Now least you think that's all I've done this year, I have also finished 2 hooked rugs or ruglets as Mark calls them since they are to small for floors.
Log Cabin which was my 1st rug and looks amazing on these chair with the coverlet kitty.  Yes there are a lot of mistakes but everyone has to start somewhere

Hearts in Flowers from Create and Decorate magazine.  I bound it way to tight but again folk art is forgiving of our mistakes!
So hope y'all have a great weekend and I'll be back next week with house pictures along with more of Zeva I'm sure.  Do something this weekend that makes you smile!
