A little Bit About Me
Someplace in Thyme
I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

~~AFTER ALMOST THREE YEARS, I HAVE FINALLY FINISHED~~
I can remember thinking it was a lot of work and worth every minute, every stitch, sequin, bead and thread.
I think maybe it's time to finally pass them on to their rightful owners.
While shopping in Hobby Lobby about three years ago, YIKES! I am almost embarrassed to admit that it has taken me this long to complete something so dear for someone I treasure so much, but that is the sad fact. I came across Bucilla pattern stocking kits. Having four grandchildren to love and adore, the idea hit me hard to buy them, make them and pass them on.
I thought, no trouble, I will start with the oldest grandchild and work my way down.
I had no idea it would take me years to finish my first one. I know I have to do much better on the rest, or they will never be finished while my treasures are young.
Allie, who was four at the time was the first stocking I worked on.
This is the pattern I choose for her:
It was worth every minute, hour, day, or should I say year? HA
Since making this little goodie and purchasing the four, I now have been blessed with a new grandson. Life is so good.
I think I had better get busy, I have lots of sewing to do.
