Another sweet treat

I have finished up another of the dessert series for my kitchen. I'm up to four now and will probably take a break from stitching them and get the ones I've completed framed up for display.  This time around it's chocolate pudding...mmmm.

Again, the patterns are from the Death By Chocolate set from Aunt Martha's. You can buy them here. I will hopefully get around to stitching up all of them some day.  

I've got a busy weekend coming up so I'm going to keep it brief.  I'm so tired.
'Til next time!

April: Dessert of the Month

It's that time again----time for the dessert of the month.  This time it's an adorable little carrot cake!  I really love the colors in this one. 

 Here they are all together, getting sweeter by the month.
Once again, if you'd like to join in the fun, just go here to get started!

I'm going to keep it short and sweet today.  Enjoy your week!

Rocket ships and monkey butt

Wow friends--April is tick tocking away!  I have been busy though!  So let's catch up.  Here's a few embroideries I've stitched onto some clothes for the baby!

 Rocket ship pattern from here. I love the bright red on these blue stripes!

 Another blue striped onesie--this time with a little monster?  Critter?   Pattern from here. I used another one of the Michael Sieben patterns that I love so much.

 I used a variegated thread for the little monster--just a subtle color change but fun.  I'm now thinking I should have stitched 'radical' in a darker color--seems a bit hard to read. 

 A little octopus on this bright yellow shirt I found at the thrift using a pattern from this set.  I'm loving this one!

 This onesie already had a super cute monkey on the front...

 So I put one on the back!  Monkey Butt!

Pattern from here. I can't stand the cute!

I can't wait for him to wear these! I'm under the three month mark now, so not long to go.  I'm so excited.  My to-do list seems to keep getting longer and longer though.  Hopefully I'll find the time to get it all done!  

'Til next time!

Spring is for cookies

Happy April! Spring has definitely sprung here in NC.  Trees and flowers are blooming and hubby is sneezing up a storm (poor thing).  I'm not complaining that's for sure--I'm loving this weather and it's got me thinking about my little porch garden.  I'm really not sure if I'm going to try vegetables again this year though. I may just get some pretty flowers and maybe more herbs because it was nice having fresh herbs last year--yummy.  Speaking of yummy goodness, I finished up another of the sweet treats from this pattern set.  

 Yummy chocolate chip cookies.

This design may be my favorite so far.  I love the little flowers.  It was fun to stitch. 

I played around with some variegated floss on the leaves.  I like the subtle color changes.  I think I've decided to display these on some small canvases with some fun, bright fabric behind it.  I'll have to experiment a little to see if it will work.  If you'd like a reminder of the other sweet treats I've done, check them out here and here.  I'm going to work on the chocolate pudding next.  Plus, I've got my April Dessert of the Month cross stitch to do!  I always look forward to those.  

I'm off to enjoy this lovely day.  'Til next time!
