Are you a Nut…..as in Peanut

Are you a Nut….as in Peanut….what would you look like?

While taking some time to catch up on some blog reading today I came across this question on Mdm Samm’s blog Sew We Quilt. The idea behind this question is what if the Peanuts director calls and says “We want you in are next Peanut Movie, send us your portfolio ….” what would you look like?

So going the Get Peanutized link I built a Peanuts character I think represents my “Prim Girl” self.

FNSI Results

I was glad for some time last night to work on my cross stitch project Winter Queen by Mirabilia Designs. To be honest I haven’t worked on this in about 3 weeks. I’m either working on something else or it’s just too hot in the house.

Last night I finished filling in the areas with Whisper floss by Rainbow Gallery. Such a pretty thread but not so easy to work with.

Slow Sunday Stitching

Joining Kathy and the all the wonderful stitchn’ lovelies today for:

Last Sunday I worked on the Baltimore Halloween block. Today I’m back working to stitching the Winter Queen. I had took some time off while waiting for the Q-Snap I ordered to arrive. Like I mention before I’m in a place where I need to expand and I didn’t want to trap my stitches in the edges of my hoop. Never really liked doing that. I was hoping that the Q-Snap frame would work better on this larger project. So I ordered the 11×17 frame along with some extenders.
