Sunday night

Well, I just finished my needlebook exchange project, and I must say I am rather pleased. Meari posts such great instructions!!! I followed her directions and it came out really cute. I neglected to buy the needles the other day when I was at Joann's, so darn it I guess I have to go back... oh well... :)

Now on to Jennifer's baby announcement. I have the first few lines of green filled in on the background and am about to start on Elena's name. I always hate to start that part, because I am nervous that I counted wrong and I will get it done and it will not be balanced. I count and recount and re-recount... probably make it worse than it really is, right? LOL.

I also need to finish up my friend's bookmark, then I think I am going to start my daughter something for her new apartment. I will post photos as I go.

Right now, though, time for bed. Early day tomorrow, being Monday and I have to go to work.

Happy stitching!

Monday update

Was a crazy weekend, but I got some stitching done.

Next I will put in the baby's name, fill in around that with the green, then wait for her to arrive so I can add her birthweight. I am pleased with it so far!

Test post

Just checking to see if I can post from the tablet.

Memorial Day weekend

Well, my plan was to spend Monday inside, out of the heat and the sun, stitching. But you know how it goes.. my brother showed up with my niece, out of the blue. What a wonderful surprise! I have seen him only twice in maybe the last three or four years, because he works overseas and when he gets home, he stays home. We gathered all my kids and the grandbabies and had a great time on the lake, laughing and telling stories on each other.

What fun!

Of course, now I am a day behind.. and next weekend will not be any better since a whole different bunch of family is coming to Dallas for my other niece's graduation! I guess I better spend the next few evenings busy busy!

LOL... it was well worth it.

Y'all have a wonderful, stitchy day!

My apologies to the blog

Wow. It is already almost the end of May and I have completely neglected this blog. I am sorry. I hereby promise to pay more attention to you. Really.

Let's start with what I am stitching. My friend Jennifer is expecting her first baby in about four weeks, so I am working on a baby announcement for the nursery.

This is the pattern photo:

This is the work in progress. Instead of the blue in the pattern photo, I am considering using this green. Her nursery colors are pink and green. I can't decide if I want a lighter green or not.

I will continue to post pictures as we go.

My one and only Biscornu and a Humbug

I just finished my Biscornu - I must say, although it turned out very nice, I did not enjoy stitching it very much. Wait - I enjoyed STITCHING it, I just did not enjoy the putting-it-together part. Too tedious for me.

This is a Humbug and I DID enjoy the entire process on this one. I have already begun looking for little Christmas ornie patterns to do for next Christmas.
