I'm in L.O.V.E

I am so in love with my new cupboard, sometimes I go in to that room and open the doors just to look at it.  I have more to put in there yet but I've already put so much in it!

I spent Saturday night putting the paper on the shelving.  There is a stand at the Peddler's Mall that sells rolls and rolls of wallpaper for $10 each.  I was looking for black and white tiole or something similar but this is the closest I could get to it.  I really like it though.

It didn't take me long to start putting things on the shelves.  I am so thrilled with this cupboard.  I didn't imagine when looking for something to store my stitchy stash in that I would find something that was so perfect. Of course I wish I had about two more of them.  There is alot of stuff that won't fit in just one.

While at that Peddler's Mall I found another pair of angels. They were only 50 cents each. They make a nice addition to my collection.

I have been looking at all your blogs with the most adorable hand made ornaments displayed and I'm really wishing I had made at least ONE ornament!  I know better than to set a goal for one ornament each month because I would be really hard on myself for not sticking to it.  I found my 2010 Christmas issue of JCS (didn't get this years) and I saw a couple ornaments in there that I thought I would like to try.  Here's a really cute and simple one I've started.

I must have had a temporary bout of insanity because this is 50 count linen.  That's right, FIFTY count!  Stitching the angel wasn't so bad but the words are going to be very difficult.

I've also started stitching on ABC Tapestry once again.  What I really need to do is devote a certain amount of time each day to this.  At this rate I will never get it done. I'm on the H block right now.

Each block is 4 1/4"  x  5 3/4".  There are 28 blocks in all.  I will be old an gray, older and grayer by the time I get this one done!

Thanks so much for stopping by and if I don't get to post again before Christmas, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.
Now go make some memories!

Oh I saw one the other day but decided that I couldn't spare that much wall space, something would have to go and well, as much as that cupboard was awesome and all,,,
Your is fitting right in with all of you stash filling the shelves and the red and white paper is wonderful too.
If you do not post before Christmas Peg, I wish you the Merriest of Merry and the Happiest of Happy Christmas and all the best in 2012.

I love your new cabinet and the wallpaper shelf liner is perfect! You could always set yourself a specific day to work on your big project. Sunday is the day I usually have a chunk of time to devote to stitching like this.

I love the cabinet! I hope to be getting a hutch/cabinet soon too! My husband did a job at a house that redid most every room, and they finally decided to get rid of this white cabinet they had loaded to the gills! I can hardly wait! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Myra said...

I love your cupboard too! Great start but I think I would go blind trying to stitch on that linen. It will be so dainty when you finish.

Merry Christmas to you and Masterchief!

Love the way your stash cabinet is coming together! I had a similar find a couple of years ago. I found an old beautiful nine drawer wood stand. It holds two large floss organizers in each drawer and patterns in the bottom drawer. Aren't those kind of finds so much fun! Gives me an idea for a future post. :-)

Good progress on your alphabet sampler. It is going to be gorgeous.

Keep on stitching!

Catherine said...

Wow! Your cabinet looks great! Wish I could find one like that! I still can't believe you are stitching on 50!! It's so cute! Wishing you and Masterchief a Very Merry Christmas!!

Carol said...

Every time I see that cabinet, I love it more! What fun you must be having trying to decide exactly what to put where :)

Your teeny angel stitching is adorable, Peggy!

Charlene ♥ SC said...

...and as you should be! I love it, too,even from this distance! Also think the red inside is perfect. No wonder you don't do one a month - on 50 count!! Still enjoy watching your Tapestry grow! Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!

Penny said...

I'm in love with your cupboard too!! Like you though, I could use several. :D
Oh my goodness, I can't imagine 50 count, but your little angel is so sweet! I'm amazed every time I see your ABC Tapestry - so pretty.
Wishing you and your husband a Merry Christmas! :)

Jennifer said...

I love the paper you chose, looks so good! Your angel stitched is so sweet too.

Merry Christmas!

Suzanne said...

Your cabinet looks great with the paper. It a perfect way to store all your stash.

I have always wanted to stitch on 50 count, but have never been able to find it. Your little piece looks so sweet.

Nice work on your ABC piece, you'll get there with it.

Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas.

Kathy Ellen said...
