Some new stash and an update on WIP

Well I just got my order in from JJ's Collectibles.  I just truly love everything.

Sorry for the glare.  In addition, on my Quaker, I finished the butterfly on the upper righthand corner and started the flower motif.  I figure I can work on this Wed, Thurs and Fri and my other project during the other part of the week.  That way I won't get bored.

As always, thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Sad News and an update

Well we had to take our beloved dog Princess Anabelle (aka: Annie and Belle) to the hospital.  Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done.  It was hard but ultimately the right decision.  Yesterday hit everyone hard especially my 5 year old, but we are doing a lot better.  Here is a picture of Princess Belle.

Well I also have an update on my sister's picture.  It is looking really pretty. I am putting it aside for a few days to work on my Quaker.  I want to get it done this year.

Thanks for looking and have a great week.

A biscornu finish and a WIP

Hello.  Well I usually like to work on smalls during the day because I can add a stitch here and there.  I finished this biscornu and looks so pretty in my basket.  It was a freebie that is no longer available.

In addition, I started this project for my sister.  I need to complete it before mid-June when we go to visit my family in Florida.
That is all for now.  Have a great weekend.

Happy Easter and framed piece

Hi.  Wow 2 post in one week.  Very unusual for me.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  My family and I had a good time.  Made a big breakfast and went to church.  Then I came home and cooked Ham, mac and cheese and Green Bean Casserole.  Wish I could have been with my folks but I always call during the holidays.

At any rate, I framed this finish I did earlier this year.  It was from http://www.thedomesticscientist.com/?p=274 blog.  Of course being the critical person I am I don't know why it creased on the left side.  My son doesn't mind but I am bummed out.  Oh well, at least it is straight and even.

Thanks for letting me share.

Happy Easter

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.  The kids are officially off of school so the fun begins. I started this freebie (it is no longer available) and hopefully finish into a biscornu next week.  It was from Linden Bee Designs.  I dyed the mystery evenweave with some fabric paint.  I think it will look cute in the basket.

Thanks so much for looking.
