50% off my Etsy site for all my Blog Friends

I am doing some spring cleaning and need to make room for new and exciting creations. For all my blog friends, I am offering 50% off starting today until June 4th! Please take a look at my Zombie Swan as I have a great offer on the table from a set of 7 year old twin boys who offered me their entire piggy bank for it…$1.03! (Sadly, I am unable to buy a yard of fabric with that much). 

I really want to make a sale or two and use that money to buy fabric to make colorful children’s pillowcases to donate to a wonderful charity called Connkerr Cancer. I am so blessed to have 3 healthy children and really want to help bring smiles to those who are not so lucky health-wise. 

Please visit my website at https://www.etsy.com/shop/BadStitches

All sales this week go directly to the buying of children’s fabrics to make pillowcases for sick children. Please visit the charity I am hoping to donate 100 pillowcases by the end of summer to. http://www.conkerrcancer.org/

No, I am not bored.

Yesterday, my husband asked a simple question. “Aren’t you bored with that yet?” Oh course not. I suppose I asked the same thing of my mother, watching her sit in her chair with a special light over her and a small table next to her as she would spend hours and hours of time cross stitching. Well, I have thought about my husbands question and it does seem rather tedious to be making hundreds of X’s over and over again, sorting through colors and counting stitches. To a non-stitched, I suppose it seems boring. So, why don’t I get bored with it?

It’s the colors I think. It’s so wonderful seeing the beautiful colors pop off the white canvas, like paint. It’s almost magical to see the pattern come together to create beautiful picture and to make something that will be around for years to come.I will wait and be patient and then look forward to seeing and hearing my family’s reaction when at last I have finished this project. It is coming together beautifully and I am enjoying the stitching. So, the next time he ask’s me that question, and he will, I will simply say, “no, I am not bored.”Image
