BigGirlPantiesOh my goodness! I have said this way too many times. It is my go to phrase when people need to get it together and press on. Sue Hills Designs created this freebie for the ladies and one for the boys, “Put on your big boy shorts and deal with it.” For some reason, I think this would be great for an office cube or maybe a sassy  his and hers wedding present. Is that evil of me?  Anyhoo..,I think I will stitch this up for myself, so I can remember that when the times get tough, I need to put those panties on and deal with it.

You can find this pattern, as well as one for the boys, HERE.

HalloweenTopiarySo I am a little obsessed with Halloween. Don’t judge.  I can’t help it, I love everything about it. The candy, the pumpkins, scary movies, dressing up. All of it is so much fun! I was very giddy this morning when I found this cute little Halloween Topiary from DMC in my inbox. The ghosts dancing around the topiary is just too cute and the little black cat at the bottom is the icing on the cake.

You can download this new Halloween pattern on DMC’s website HERE.

pic-they-are-your-familyI am a firm believer that family can come from anywhere. You don’t have to be related by blood to have family in your life. They are the people who stick by you when times are rough and the chips are down. They are the people who pick you up, dust you off and allow you to walk again. This quote by Jim Butcher fits my life and family perfectly. Embroiderbee’s Primary Hive created this quote along with a border to remind us all of what family really is.

You can find the pattern HERE.

Have you ever participated in an SAL (Stitch Along)? They can be a bit risky if you don’t get to see the whole pattern, but they are also a ton of fun. The Primitive Hare is well known for her amazing patterns and this stitch along is no exception. The title of the stitch along is Early Witches and after seeing the beginning of the pattern, I am blown away. It is eerie yet beautiful. The pattern is divided into 3 parts. The first part has already been sent out, but you can catch up and can work at your own pace.

You can purchase the pattern HERE.

221331_04Jul14_MapDo you watch the show Game of Thrones? Have you read the books? So many people I know are obsessed with them.  RandomGenerated on Craftster.org created this amazing Game of Thrones Map of Westeros with House Sigils.  She has designs for other houses but didn’t want to overwhelm the piece, so hopefully we will be seeing a second part. She was inspired by a cross stitch she did of Scotland a few years ago. What makes this even more impressive is that she got the placement of the houses from the credits of the show.

You can read more about this piece HERE.

almost copiaFall is just around the corner and I couldn’t be happier. Summer and Fall are my favorite seasons. The air is crisp, you get to wear sweaters and don’t even get me started on foods flavored with pumpkin. While we enjoy the last of summer, it’s never too early to start thinking about our Fall stitching. La Contesse le Point de Croix created this free Almost Fall pattern to get you in the spirit of falling leaves, acorns and cooler temps.

il_570xN.328790147Did you watch the season premiere of Dr. Who last night? What did you think of the new doctor? In a short time, I have fallen in love. I’m excited to see what adventures he will get into. As excited as I am about the new season, I am equally as giddy about this 3-D cross stitched Tardis by Robinsdesign. The Tardis is just the tip of the iceberg in the arena of Robin’s 3-D designs. You can make your own doctors to go along for the adventure.

You can buy this pattern along with other Dr. Who characters at her Etsy shop HERE.
