Get Out Your Needles

Thank you, guys, so much for all the nice comments about my ornaments and the birthday wishes too!

I recently found this scrap of paper with "yoonie at home" written on it in a pile of stuff on my bedroom floor. I knew it was a blog I had visited before but hadn't yet gone back there again so I'm glad there was a link on Craft to the tutorial to make this felt peony hair clip. My hair isn't long enough for barrettes anymore (was it ever?) (not really except I did wear headbands in 10th grade during my preppie phase) but I know I can do something with this peony once I make it, even if I just sit and stare at it.

Check out the links to some Halloween cross stitch and embroidery freebies at Starlight Free Pattern Directory, including a cute witch and a vampire, on a lovely blog called Quixotic Pixels, and a skull and crossbones at

And, don't forget all the other embroidery patterns at The one to embroider and applique some tea towels with a sunbonnet ladies of the week design is new to me.

Over at Ohdeedoh, you can find a free Amy Butler sewing pattern for a Cuddle Kitty (it's so cute!) [link via One Pretty Thing].

Want an awesome Obama button for your blog? Go to Happy Zombie and pick up two of them.

There's a vintage chicken scratch booklet posted on Susie Can Stitch (with more photos on her Flickr).

Have a great weekend! (I think I'm going to hit Michael's again to use up some more of that gift card. Woo hoo!)
