Had to get old Trusty out.

I've had sewing machine trouble...... my hubby bought me a new Singer for Christmas. I've worked with it the last three days and just could not get it going. So yesterday I called the Singer Sewing Company and talked to a really sweet gal named LouAnne. She had me preform a couple a test on it. No luck it still would not sew. So today I packed it up and mailed it to their customer affairs department. They are supposed to send me a replacement of equal or greater value. 

So today I got my old trusty Brother machine out and set it up again. 

I finished my January Block of the Month that I'm doing from the Pat Sloan website. 

 I also sewed up three blocks for my local quilt guild, that will be put together with other members blocks and the donated to the local domestic violence shelter.

Hope you all have a great weekend !!

Until next time,

One of those kind of days.....

We all have them! You know the ones....the days where NOTHING goes the way you want it to. Today was one of those days for me. Last night before bed, I wrote out my Saturday to do list. Just normal things really, but it included taking pictures of my 2 main knitting projects and my quilt blocks that I have been working on the last few days. Did it happen.....nope. So the post I had planned for today, well, it ain't going to happen today. Boo !! I'm not starting my blog out very well. Am I ??

Have you ever had days like this ??? I'd love to hear about them. Leave me a comment and tell me about your day.....good or bad !


Hello and welcome to my blog. I am so happy that you have stopped by. As you can tell, this is my very first post, my introduction post, so let's get to it.

My name is Sue. I live in central Indiana, thus the name Hoosier Stitcher. I am a craftaholic, and no, I do not need a 12 step program to help me with this issue, because honestly I don't want help. I love crafting and that will never change.

I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, cross stitch and embroidery. Stick around and I'm sure you'll see a bit of all of these. More some than others. I am a jumper when it comes to my crafting. One day I may be knitting and the next day I may be cross stitching. And just to warn you in advance, there will be post where I write about several different projects in one posting.

Over the next few days I will be posting several of pictures of my works in process (Wips). In the post I'll be giving you a description of the the project and some background on what the project is for, or why I felt the need to start each item. There will be knitting, crocheting, cross stitch and quilting projects. So I hope you will come back tomorrow to see my first Wips post where I will be showing you my current knitting project and my current quilting project.

Until next time,
