American Star

Hello everyone! Just a quick post to show my finish of American Star from Blackbird Designs. I had most of the stitching of it done for quite some time. I just needed to fill in the background. I finally got around to finishing that part over the last couple of days. I think I will finish this into a stitching box of some sort. For lack of space, I store my stitching and other crafting supplies in the family/game room. Because of that I try to disguise my storage containers with stuff that will fit the room nicely without looking to hodge- podge. I say "try", I'm not quite there yet. It's a small room that is actually an exta bedroom with two entrances. There is no bed in there, just family stuff. The things that stick out like a sore thumb in there are my stackable drawer units. I have no place to put them. I'd take a picture for all of you crafty people so I could get ideas on how to disguise those, but it's such a hideous mess right now, I'd be too embarassed! The projects that I will be focusing on between now and Christmas is getting my winter stitching done and finishing up Alex's quilt.It's a not a Christmas present so no need to worry about him visiting my blog. I may get around to making a tree skirt too that I have wanted to make for some time now. Here's hoping this is the year! I won't be doing quite as much stitching for a while other than that. I need to give my eyes a break, the eye doctor informed me yesterday that the iritis has reared it's ugly head again. I'm not a bit surprised, it's been a real bugger to deal with.

Anyway, here is the American Star.

'til next time,
Happy Stitching,


  1. Gorgeous finish, but oh-no for eye problems!!

    Regarding the tree skirt, I'm very interested in how you proceed with that as I've been ruminating on how to make one...I have some old burgundy/charcoal sweatshirts that dear Marc was gonna throw away and I salvaged with the thought that I could make them into a tree skirt, but that's as far as I've gotten. I, too, have to find a what to make my "supplies" fit into my living room, but I'm in a mid stage and have almost given up. Well, no, it's more like a multi-front battle and I need a better strategy. ;)

    Oh, if you haven't seen it already, I'm having a small giveaway on my blog this week (up through Thanksgiving).

  2. Beautiful Sharlotte!! That's a great finish and I bet it makes you feel wonderful. I'm sorry to hear about your iritis. I pray that healing will be swift so you can keep up the great stitching!

  3. Beautiful finish! I have never seen that design before. It is gorgeous. Hope your eyes are feeling better.

  4. Beautiful stitching on American Star - you should be proud!
    Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving for you and all your dear ones!

  5. Lovely - hope your Thanksgiving Day was great and that your eyes are better soon!

  6. Woohoo! Congrats on the finish! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy your weekend!
