Okay some of you may not get the Plants Vs. Zombies reference in the title..but it is there :)

So here we go with my March updates....don't hold you breath they aren't too exciting.
As always here is a link to my Vlog.
Stitch From Stash:

I mentioned last month that I purchased a bunch of charts on clearance from Crazy Annie's big of those sorta fell into my stash. So I contacted Mel and she said to just include that price into this month's budget, so that was $1.50. Then I found a huge bulk of like 48 needles for either 1.99 or 2.99 I will say 2.99 to be save and honest. I also had to buy a skein of DMC. 0.30. That puts me at roughly...$4.50 for this month.

I did however splurge on a day light lamp, but when I again, contacted Ms. Mel (sorry for all the emails) she said since it is not something you "hoard" it counts a tool and is exempt. (happy dance). It sells on Amazon for $109.00 I got it for $49.99.....I LOVE THIS LAMP!!
I am going to include a picture of my stitchy setup later so you can see it in action. I also have a video on my VLOG talking more in detail about this lamp.

The stitching:
Well this month my bug was a bit on the run I did not get a lot of progress done, Life happens my son needed surgery, it was my hubby's bday month, I tried some paper crafting, and we got an Xbox 1 and I am addicted to a plants vs Zombie game lol hence the reference in the title ;)

Here is my AAN Christmas Cardinal Ball only some of the ribbon completed.
I did more on my 99 bottles than anything this month I am actually pretty proud of this progress.

And then comes the problem of my month. UGH I don't think I stitched a single section without Mr. Frog visiting I mean to the point I was going to give up...but DH and Sister talked me out of said mutilation of fabric etc LoL. I am plugging on. Not a lot of progress. But it will get there!

And I had a comment asking about my setup, asking for a video about my set up and me stitching. I will try to do this, I just don't know what to put in that video but for now here is a picture of my stitchy setup when I sit in my stitchy chair. I also sit in our bed and stitch on our couch LoL I am a mobile stitcher I guess.
Hopefully next month will be better! You guys take care!!


  1. Love what you have gotten done...hooe you and your son are feeling better...glad to see i am not the only one that moves your set up..

  2. Hi Mae - Just ran across your blog and I'm anxious to go watch some of your vlogs. I love the verse you are stitching for your coworker. Where did you find the pattern? I've been looking for that verse in a pattern for a long time!

  3. I just "found" your blog! Yay! I so love that you have a pod cast for cross stitching. I have been looking for one for a while. Your pod cast is awesome!

    Wishing you a lovely day. :)
