A biscornu finish.

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone had a great week.  I just put the finishing touches on this biscornu.  I made it for my sister who loves blue.  Now to do one more present.  I plan on making an ornament for my neighbor. 
I hope to get that done quickly so I can concentrate on my Novalee02 SAL.  Can't wait to finish.  I went to Hancock Fabrics the other day and found the perfect material to make a pillow.

Anyway, here is the info for the pattern.  It is #141 on http://aupaysdesbiscornus.over-blog.com/
I had to modify the back due to running out of floss. I still love it.  I repurposed the linen from my previous project and used DMC variations 4020 Tropical Waters.


Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving for all that celebrate this holiday.  I started cooking today and got the desserts and deviled eggs done.  I also cooked the noodles for the baked macaroni and cheese so it would go by faster.  I have a very impatient group and if it isn't done by about 11am they start fussing. 

Well I do have some stitchy news and some updates.  My son, Blakley broke my floor lamp a few weeks ago.  It was just a standard one I have had for years.  So I told my husband I needed a new lamp.  I looked at Ott's and he choked so I found this one on Ebay.  I have never been able to see my stitching like this and I am estatic.  I have noticed the last couple of years my eyes really strain around this time of year, well into winter. 
Well I was able to stitch alittle on the sampler.  I just love the red and green. 
Lastly, I have been really working on the biscornu.  I really need to get it done so I can mail my sister's gifts next week.  It is from http://aupaysdesbiscornus.over-blog.com/numer 141.  She is so gifted, I love her designs.


Have a happy and safe holiday and weekend.

Wishing you a wonderful Veteran's Day

As someone who has served in the Air Force (89' to 93') I really appreciate everything the military does.  Thank you to all that have served or is serving in our armed forces.

I also wanted to update on my SAL.  I completed part 4 last night and it was so much fun. 

Thank you so much for looking and the wonderful, encouraging comments.  They really mean a lot to me.  I hope to update once more before Thanksgiving.  Can you believe it is next Thursday?  Wow!

Have a great week,
Mary

completion of part 3

Good morning everyone.  Hope you had a great week especially if you celebrate Halloween.  A friend came over with her son and we got to walk and chat while the kids got their goodies.  I just love Fall and the pumpkins and good fun.  Too bad we have a cold front right now.  I am too chicken to walk in this cold weather and I feel really guilty.  I hope it warms up soon.

Well I managed to complete part 3.  Today I start on part 4.  It is so pretty.

Sorry about the shadow but the lighting in my house is terrible.  At least you get a good idea what it looks like.

Well I hope you have a great weekend.
