Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Stitchin’ Away!


Today is Wednesday, and that means it’s time to show another block I embroidered.  I’m joining Kelly over at Charming Chatter to showcase my Nice People Nice Things embroidery.   I didn’t take the time to double check which blocks I’ve already showed you, but I know this one is new.

Several people have asked where I got the pattern for this project.  I ordered it from a shop in Australia called Hugs ‘n Kisses.  The patterns are iron on, which makes it really easy!  I chose a line of fabric and then chose my floss colors to match the fabric.  I’m probably not going to make the quilt that is included in the pattern.  I’ll have to wait until the embroidery is finished.  Then I’ll let the blocks and the fabric talk to me!

I totally forgot about the caption contest that I posted two posts ago.  The winner is:

“Let me explain how this is gonna happen bro…your gonna smile for this pic or there will be consequences”. (Hey I’m a Chicagoan…looks like a shakedown to me…lol)

My sister and I chose this one because those kids knew what “consequence” meant from the time they were toddlers.  Maybe that’s why they’re the best behaved kids I know!!!

Mickey, just click on the “Contact Me” link at the top of the page and get me your address, and I’ll get your yarn to you!

And now I think I’ll go stitch some more.
