My Happy Place

I have been continuing to reside in my happy place this week - working on a plethora of stitching, sewing, and quilting projects that bring me personal joy. I can't wait to give you a little peek at my latest cross stitch model - it makes me smile from ear to ear (yes, those are the fabric and thread colors shown right)....and I charted a couple more new pieces over the last few days. I have also been catching up on some long overdue customer sewing...and I have almost completed a beautiful spring wall hanging the features 6" traditional quilt blocks and machine appliqué (more on that in the coming weeks). Plus, I have been busy creating items for my Etsy shop and listing new things - including more Stitch Starter Ruler with Pocket Sleeve sets and some new Blue Ribbon Designs cross stitch chart bundles....and I have some new zippered pouches (I call them tool pouches) that will list very soon - they measure 9.25" W x 7.25" H and are a great size for multiple uses!

I continue to go to the gym each morning and have been getting in some great 3-Day training walks in the afternoon - yes, some of them have even been outdoors, now that the weather is starting to improve...and yes, Miss Schatzi is thrilled to be getting in some good mileage outside. It has been uplifting to see the sun shining and I can't wait until spring truly arrives. I hope beautiful weather is arriving in your area and that you are feeling inspired...


  1. Beautiful lovely happy stitching :)
    So pleased you and Schatzi are getting some outside training....though I can't believe that time has flown so rapidly....I seem to remember you doing the walk not even a couple of months ago!

  2. Absolutely lovely stitching. The sun is so uplifting, isn't it? DH and our dogs actually got to sit on our front porch yesterday.

  3. Your work is inspiring to so many people! Searching for my happy place... maybe getting out of the house and going for a walk would help - Thank you for inspiring Belinda!!

  4. Lovely projects you have been working on and creating, Belinda! I love your new tool pouches. Thank you for inspiring us with your creativity! Thinking of you!

  5. Lindos trabajos. Me encantaron los estuches.
