Happy Monday

Hi everyone,

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday.  I was until I went to get the mail and 5 wasp flew out and I got stung on the finger.  It hurt so bad, and I have a feeling I am slightly allergic so I took a Benedryl.  It feels better.  I had no idea that they built a nest inside the box.  Needless to say, there is no longer a nest.  I hope the mail lady didn't get hurt.

Well onto other things.  I finally "finished" my Blue Ribbon Design from last time into an ornament.  I am pleased with the results.

In addition, I "finished" this little thing into a door hanger.  I think it is cute.

I finished this biscornu this morning.  It was from the Blueladie Designs yahoo group.  It was from June.  I made the pins by hot gluing the buttons to the pins.  My son thought it was super cute.  He is my biggest fan.

In addition, I just finished this freebie from the Little Stitcher.  It was for the June challenge on the 123 Stitch! message board.  I changed my mind and decided to do it as a companion piece to the biscornu.  I need to get some fabric. so I can make it into a pillow.

I started on this.  It is on 32ct Woodlawn by PTP and it is beautiful. However,  I am going to wait until the kids go back to school and I get some reading glasses in order to continue.   I need the quiet and my new progressives are too hard to use for needlework.  But I felt good putting a few beginning stitches.

Lastly, I put some more stitches into this WIP.  It was a from a free SAL that Novalee was doing last year.  I already have the material to make a pillow. I will get this done. Sorry about the quality of the picture.


Thanks so much for looking and have a great week.

A Quaker Finish and a Patriotic Finish

Good Afternoon everyone,

I have such exciting news.  I finally finished my Quaker by Wiehenburg Designs.  I haven't done a project this big in a long time.  Now to find the time to get it framed.  For now it goes in the drawer with all the other finished project just waiting to get "finished".

I also finished this small chart into a biscornu, just in time for the 4th of July.  It was from the May Blueladie Designs monthly newsletter.  I altered it slightly but Cathryn didn't mind. 

Here is a picture of my next big project.  I will be making a series of 5 pictures of all our dogs, past and present.  The first one will be of our golden Labrador Anabelle, she passed away last April.  I will be stitching this on PTP 32ct Lugana in the color Woodlawn.  I can't wait to get started.

Thanks again for looking and all the support, it really motivates me to finish projects especially the larger ones.

Have a great weekend,
Mary
