2014 in review

January 3, 2015

This is always fun to share! Look for a real update from me very soon!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 270,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 12 days for that many people to see it.

Lily – 3 Years Later

December 22, 2014

Lily - Three Years Later

This Lily, my sister and her hubby’s sweet kitty.

You may remember Lily from our big fundraiser from November 2011. She was rescued by Stephanie & Richard and she was obviously injured.

The vet discovered Lily had been shot and that she needed to have her leg amputated. It was an expensive procedure, but she needed it to save her life, and with the help of the online community, we raised enough money to cover the cost. Many, many people shared generously.

Lily - Three Years Later

She’s doing fantastically now and is Queen Kitty of the house with a brother kitty (Owen) and sister kitty (Miranda) in the house.

Thanks to Richard for the photos of Lily and to Michelle Thompson for reminding me that I hadn’t shared an update for a while!

Read all about Lily’s journey.

We’re Doomed

December 8, 2014

C3P0 Cushion

 

I have the great fortune of being surrounded by people that love many of the same things I do. When I began to contemplate the birthday of my brother-in-law, I knew I wanted to start with my C3P0 stitch that I designed earlier this year for The Summer of Stitching.

Enter this fun pillow, made with an 8 1/2″ center, 2 1/2″ & 3 1/2″ borders plus triangles to make it interesting. The pillow front is backed with muslin and I used some straight line stitching to give it a quilted look.

I gifted this pretty yesterday and couldn’t wait to share! Look for it tomorrow on Talk To me Tuesday, along with a giant pile of blankets I’ve been working on for The Linus Connection!

Get the C3P0 stitch for free right here. Find more of my patterns like this right here on Sewhooked and on Fandom in Stitches.
