15 Minutes of fame and another tiny finish

OMG! OMG! OMG!!! I can't believe this!

I had emailed Pamela Kellogg of Kitty and Me Designs some pictures of my finish from this post. I was quite honored and flattered that she responded to me to tell me she liked what I had done. I had wrote back last night asking her how to handle any requests that I may get regarding the chart. It is my custom to put any relevant designer information in my posts and stitchy notes. As I had told her, it was so long ago that I got that chart, I have no clue if it was free or not! I had asked her if she wanted me to just send folks her way, because the chart itself merely says, "Copyright 2007 Pamela Kellogg Kitty and Me Designs". Not wanting to step on any toes, I asked how she wanted that handled and today I was cruising my blogs and came across hers. Lo and behold, she had mentioned me and my emails to her! I feel so flattered and so honored that she mentioned me. If you like, you can visit her post here . She's also re-posted the chart, so grab it and remember to post a thank you! :)

Next is a tiny finish I had on my Mom's birthday yesterday. It was quick and easy and it's not really helping my startitis, but /shrug. Wattayagonnado? Anyway, here's the pic and the stitchy notes:

Design: Tiny House

Designer: Diane Williams for Little House Needleworks

Fabric: 28 count mushroom lugana

Fibers: DMC 309, 434, 712, 924, 3051, 3052, and 3371. (#309 was substituted for 3777 which I did not have).


Well, I need to go. I've been doing random chores off and on all day today and I need to study for a bit.

Laters! :D


Respectfully submitted,

wow Cindy, that is funny.
as not long after our recent trade i found 2 complimentary patterns from pamela kellogg i had printed out years ago. But never got around to stitching them.
one is a Blackwork snowman with beads from 2002 and also a butterfly bookmark from 2003.
i don't think i had them in them years mind i think a bit later on.
oh well maybe i will stitch them one day.

I remember those charts well. I have the butterfly bookmark somewhere. I need to get it out and stitch it. It really is pretty and I have so much of her stuff! :)

Yes its very pretty. I need to use some of my left over pieces of aida hopefully i find the right piece for that bookmark. ;)
