Needles and a Pen bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

swap stacks

I’m participating in the Urban Home Goods and Spice up the Kitchen swaps (though I refuse to write them out with all of their extra symbols–it makes me feel a gang member).  I played with the stash this morning and came up with a stack for my Urban Home Goods partner that I like so much that the color scheme leaked into my kitchen partner’s fabrics, too.  (And I like the first stack so much it will probably find its way into my Single Girl Quilt-Along quilt, too!)  I think it’s my need for spring–I just was peeking at my google reader and saw that there’s a similar color scheme on Stitched in Color!

I couldn’t resist this little pot for my partner!

And here’s a look at my table right now–I’m playing with some it’s a hoot!

Kristie at OCD - LOL! I am “anti-gang” as well. Seriously. What’s with all the {} ???

Rachel at Stitched in Color - Hello! I just came over from Blue Elephant Stitches post today. And, I recognize your lovely photos from the SUTK swap. Nice to meet you! Lovely free motion work!!!
