Also working on...

Plum Street Samplers' Mary's SAL 1.  It's a free SAL on her blog.  (There's a link to it in the 'blogs I read' below.  Scroll down, on right-hand side.)

I've used 18ct mocha fabric from 123 Stitch and the GAST threads called for:

At least I am up-to-date on this one.  Thank you Paulette for making it easy.  :)   Mary and Joseph were part 1.  The sheep were part 2.  The manger was part 3 and the angel was part 4.  My speed: s-l-o-w.  ;)

I picked the piece I am currently working on because I'm so far behind with it (SAL).

What I've been stitching


This is from Little House Needleworks "Rose Hill Plantation" © 2009
Finished 9/23/2013
Used HDF silk threads

I altered it a bit not using the large roses and replacing them with trees and also replaced the wording for my husband's family home in Mississippi.  He was so touched.  I have yet to get a frame for it.


CCN's "Christmas Village" © 2012 (as you can see I am VERY behind lol)
DMC threads.

I got stuck on this one a bit - don't know why, but I am back to stitching it now.  I believe it's because I found a beautiful red bell pull to put it on.  Yes, I said bell pull.  I think it's about 17.5 or 18 inches wide.  :)

Well, thanks for stopping by,

The Blueladie Designs Newsletter

was sent out on August 31st because of the holiday.

Unfortunately Yahoo decided to roll out the new groups version and everything is not working properly much to the dismay of most of its users (at least that's what it looks like from reading the comments of complaint on yahoo's website).

If you didn't get yours, please send me an email and I will send you a personal copy.  (click here).

A Finish

Little House Needleworks "Busy Needle" ©2007
Using Fabtastic Pink Solo 18 ct.
Crescent Colors threads

White threads are hard to see in picture that's why the darker photo without the flash to pick up the white threads.  It's a wonderful piece and I'm so glad I found it.  :D

Rose DH picked for me this morning.  :)

Started this in July - I was kind of slow - but it is very easy and very quick.  It's Pledge Allegiance by LMc Designs.  Forget where I found it because I've had it for a long time.  I really like it though and am going to frame it and hang it in our living room.  :)

PS.  I now have the link to Linda's wonderful patriotic designs thanks to one of my readers.  Thank you Calamaty!!!

Support Bits of Floss!  :)

I finished stitching my Lizzie*Kate Winter Alphabet (c) 2011.  I sure do love it.  I may have to pull out another one from my stash.  I'm thinking about geting a fabric pillow then just stitching it to the front.  :)

Stitching Update

Lizzie*Kate's Winter Alphabet

I started stitching Lizzie*Kate's Winter Alphabet when CCN's Santa's Village was starting to get to me to the point that I wasn't stitching.  Now that I'm stitching again, perhaps I will be able to go back to Santa's Village.  Although, I fully expect not to finish it along with the others.

Annette Funicello

died today at the age of 70.  I followed her religiously from the Mickey Mouse club to TV to movies.  I even had a scrapbook of her (nothing like todays scrapbooks).  It's long ago and far away.

Rest in Peace Annette.  You were an inspiration to many, including me.

Grow Your Blog Event- WELCOME!


My name is Cathryn and I am the designer for Blueladie Designs.  I have been designing since October of 2002.  I started this blog when I discovered blogs and their value of communicating and sharing with others with same likes and interests. 

My blog is mostly cross stitch themed as I love cross stitching and designing charts.  It does, however, involve other topics from time to time. 

To celebrate this event, I am having a giveaway – your choice of 1 (one) item either from the Blueladie Designs website (link above) or my Stash sales (links also above).  Please leave a comment along with your email address.  :)   I hope your visit here is enjoyable. 

Thank you so very much for stopping by.  I appreciate it.
