Holiday Hootie is finished

Good afternoon everyone,
I hope everyone is having a great day!  Today is the first day of Kindergarten for my youngest son.  They stagger it for Kindergarten where they split the class into 1/3's and they take turns going Mon, Tues and Wed and then start school as usual on Thursday. 

Well I finished Holiday Hootie by Fresh Threads.  I didn't expect to work on this WIP but I felt compelled to at least finish 1 Christmas item this year.  Every year when I hang the ornaments on the tree I always ask myself why didn't I make new ones to fill the tree.  I must admit my favorite holiday to stitch for is Halloween.  Don't know if I will have time to make any for Halloween either but we will see.

 
 
I am not sure how the string got there (on the moon) but it isn't there now.  That is what I get for being in a hurry.  Anyway, my youngest son wants me to make him a pillow.  He is like his mom and just loves pillows.  I will wait a few weeks to make sure he is settled into school before I make the hour drive into Virgina to get fabric. 
 
I also pulled this unfinished finish out.  I had it stitched but that was it.  It is a freebie from 2009 Sanman Originals members only.  I wish I did a little better because it isn't hanging correctly but I am rusty.  At least it is for me and I love it anyway.
 
Thanks for letting me share and have a wonderful week.

New Stash, a finish and a WIP

Good morning everyone,

I received my package of goodies from JJ's Collectibles and it was worth the wait.  I got Repoise from Kustom Krafts.  32ct White Chocolate linen and 32ct Sand Dune linen.  3 skiens of Wildflowers and various other floss.

Since my floss came in, I was finally able to finish my "Yummy" project.  It is stitched on 28 ct Honeysuckle Pink Joblean with DMC floss.  It was from July 2010 Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine.
So since I am done with this I pulled out a WIP I started back in April.  It is from the 2011 JCS ornament issue.  It is called Holiday Hootie by Fresh Threads Studio.  I just love their whimsical designs. 
Well that is all for now.  Hope you have a great week.

I am still here & stitching

Hi everyone,
I can't believe it has been 3 weeks since I last posted.  I guess it is because with my 3 sons out for summer my stitching time is limited.  However, I am still plugging away on Yummy.  I am about 80% done.  I am really enjoying this project.

I know it is hard to tell but I have the top middle ice cream to do and alittle bit of backstitching. 

Well I hope everyone is having a great summer.  I took the boys to see Ice Age 4 last week and it was cute.  We went to see Diary of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days this week and it was hysterical.  I think this is my favorite Diary of A Wimpy Kid movie (there are 3).  Bradley, my oldest, said that it wasn't very consistant with the book but I think what they added made it even more funny.

Well that is all for now, have a great weekend.
