My computer is still packed, but I logged on with my hubbie's laptop and changed the name (but not the address) of my blog to reflect our new location.
Welcome to Sun City Stitcher! Colorado Stitcher is now in the Valley of the Sun.
Not much stiching has gone on, but someone has found her spot!

Sometime this summer, I hope to be settled in our new digs and will try to be a better blogger, I may have a new blog name too (but same blog address, so if you have me in a blog reader, you will not lose me). Time will tell.
In the mean time, I have found time to do some stitching and will share a bit with you while I have a break and the computer has not been packed yet!
I combined my love of stitching with card making and made these cards for my nieces in California. It actually all started with snoopy since niece Laura loves snoopy and kind of grew from there. I was going to make more for others, but this move thing just gets in the way!! So maybe next year folks.
Here is another bonus I found cleaning up, but not sure where it is from now (sorry). It was in an older magazine as a bible cover. My church as a cross wall in the office, so I made this for them as a farewell gift and did it three dimensional using foam core. Boy those inner curves were a doozy to figure out!
This cute Assisi and pulled thread needle-book is a recent Foothills EGA project, it was a lot of fun to make!
This crazy quilt Easter egg is our Columbine ANG project for April (or maybe March). It a free chart off the Rainbow Gallery website and once I am settled I will get a Styrofoam egg and finish it as an egg shaped stand up.
I leave you with Miss Maddie at the top of the stairs, I will miss this look, but our new house is a ranch style. She should appreciate the no stairs too since at 11.5 years her back legs are not doing so great, especially with stairs!

It is called Love a complimentary chart from Plum Pudding NeedleArt (c) 2009. It is a little under 3" square. It was part of a retreat at a local shop, so I am not sure of the fabric, other than it is 28 ct linen (I worked it over two) and it is pink with sparkles. I used the DMC colors suggested.

Maybe I will just change the tag line from "Stitching at 5,555 ft above sea level" to something else?? And keep my blog name?
