Mimi Kirchner and some Friday fun

The wonderful Mimi Kirchner is having a giveaway of one of her charming tea cup pincushions. Additional details here. This video is a delightful look into Mimi's background, her artistic process and a look inside her studio.

(Yippie! Magically the video works now, hurray hurrah! If for some reason it changes it's mind and goes poof again teehee, you can watch it on You Tube.)

I went to the needlework store yesterday, looking for cross stitch patterns for Halloween ornaments. They didn't have the Prairie Schooler pattern booklet I was looking for but I found something even better! I keep reading about everyone's love of Blackbird Designs and yippie, they had a booklet of Halloween mini stockings. Came home with some other fun patterns too - better get stitching!

And I found the latest issue of Living Crafts at Whole Paycheck (!) this morning - there's a really cute gnome and toadstool pattern in the issue. Here's a tease ...


  1. I love stitching books! Please show us what you make! Have a nice weekend. Twyla

  2. Hi Twyla!

    If I can find where I hid my needles from myself, so that I can actually start to stitch teehee, I will post it! :) People with middle aged forgetful brains (ME!!!) should not move their craft supplies around. WAH!

    Happy weekend!

  3. Jumping up and down over here! Mimi? Is that really you?! Thank you so much for stopping by and it's very much my pleasure, you're very welcome!!! I love your artwork and you are an inspiration to me. Thank you!
