Crochet stitch along

A while back I saw blocks on someones blog for a crochet stitch along using a Leisure Arts pattern "63 Easy-to-crochet Pattern Stitches" the number was 5555. Well I found the pattern and the follow up pattern in my Annies Attic catalog and now I can't find anything about the stitch-along. Their was either a website or a yahoo group but I can't remember what. Maybe someone can help me.
Besides ordering those 2 patterns I also ordered a plastic canvas booklet called "Red Hat Attitude" Cute patterns I will have to make several.
Better get back to work. Have a great day!

Stitching Blogger's Question of the Day

I tried emailing this and it has not showed up yet so here is what I sent.

Today's "Stitching Blogger's Question" is:Do you "stitch with the seasons?" (This could be reflected by thecolors that you stitch with, the themes that you choose, or even thatduring your favorite season you stitch more (or less) than in others.)

Happy Stitching!Renée

"Stitched with Love and Cat Hair"

Not on purpose but it just seems to end up that way. Especially with the plastic canvas stuff that I do it seems to be more so especially with magnets, tissue covers and coasters. Of course they work up very fast so you can get by with doing something at the last minute.

Well I have to get back to work so everyone have a great day!!!!
