*C* Is For My Children

Well, I'm not sure if anyone noticed that I updated my letter C post, but I've since gone on to the mosaic maker and figured out how to get my own children into the pictures, even with film pictures I've just scanned into my computer.

So without further ado, here is my second favorite *C* love, behind Christ, before coffee and chocolate, although I do think twice on bad pms days about that coffee and chocolate thing.

*C*uties, aren't they?

Very cute pics!!

Thanks for your comment on my stitch kits. They were designed by a lady in my hometown who sold them in the shop where I used to work and also online. I wanted to put a link to her website, but it looks like it's under construction or something--it said it was unavailable right now. Just in case it's: www.sagestitchworks.com
These are called punched paper embroidery, I think. You may have seen vintage ones in antique shops. You use this heavy punched paper with embroidery thread. The design is printed on the paper and you simply stitch over it using the stitches the kit tells you to. The ones I've done use 3 basic stitches: a straight stitch, a tent stitch and a back stitch.

The kits are sort of expensive, and they don't come with frames obviously (although I did get the kits at a discount at the shop). But I've looked some online and you can find that kind of paper fairly cheap. Then you could simply do your own design! I've been begging Vince to design a couple for me, but he hasn't gotten around to it yet. One of these days...

I finally got mine up!

I've just been busy... It's a long story! I'll try to get to KATF; hopefully I don't end up MIA like Heather was last week. I might get special mention in next week's post if I am though....

You need to be careful about doling out special treatment like that. We might all start clamoring for some. LOL! ;)

I love these. I saw the ones over at Kicking It In Crazyville and had to come and check yours out. What a great idea.
