Damn I'm Good

First of all. I would like to start this post with a big THANK YOU to Christopher Columbus for giving me the day off!  ; )  I'm going to spend the day getting extra snuggles from my bebe and maybe stitching a little bit, too. Today I'm sharing the latest finished piece in the tea towel swap. This time I stitched for the amazing Bascom.  Please visit him here, you will be amazed by his art and stitching.  I knew right away what I wanted to do for him...the pattern featuring a devil playing a banjo of course!

Bascom always says... "Damn I'm Good" which I love because we really should value our own creativity, so I added the words.  I free-handed the lettering so it's a bit wonky but it adds a little character right?

The pattern is part of the Jim Woodring artist series set from Sublime Stitching.  Man that's a mean-looking banjo player, I bet he picks a good tune.

I think I've only got a few more towels to stitch on.  I will hate to see this end.  

I've also been thinking about the holidays.  Christmas will be here before I know it and I need to make sure I get a head start this year since my time is a bit more limited now.  Well I'm off to enjoy my day off!  

'Til next time!

Desserts of the Month: July, August and September

Phew!  I had some major stitching sessions this past week.  I was determined to get caught up on the desserts of the month patterns,and I did--stitching up July, August and September in record pace--well maybe not record pace but pretty darn fast.  Here they are!

  July is Strawberry Shortcake! Perfect for summer.

August is Frozen Yogurt!  Yum Yum.

September is Candy Apple!  Cuteness on a stick!

All together now---just three more months!  Wow has this year flown by.  Just the other day I was thinking I needed to get started on Christmas---yikes!  Again, if you'd like to join in you can here!  Well the baby is awake now--off I go.  Later!
