Stitching Update!

I spent some money on framing....Hey, I had over $150.00 in gift cards to Michaels...I'm going to use it. I have 3 finishes to show off and 2 WIPs

First, We have Erin from Fanta Cat Designs. I didn't realize that I hadn't initialed and dated it until after I had it stretched on the acid free foam core...I wasn't going to undo it, so. Oh Well! The dragon was done on the chart in green, but I decided to change it to purple...I think it came out wonderful. I stitched this while I was pregnant with the girls.

Next is Neva's Hardanger doily. It was a beginner project for those who wanted to learn Hardanger embroidery. And for once I used all the recommended materials. I stitched this one up while pregnant with Ike and it won Second Place in the 2003 (2004?) County Fair. I just finally got around to framing it.

Last for the Finishes is San Man's Designs "Snowbabies". I saw the chart after I had Ike, and finished stitching while pregnant with the girls. I made a single change on this chart. The chart originally had a bunch of random X's to look like snow falling. I substituted small, clear, sparkly beads. They were a bitch to put on...but totally worth it.

I also just realized I have another finish...I just forgot to take a picture of the finished Primitive Hearts...maybe when I get it done in its final state. I already have a backing for it!

Now for the WIPS

First is Swirley Sampler...I've gotten a lot further on it lately. I'm a little worried that I'll run out of the I'm starting to conserve it a bit

Next and Last is Fleur des Anges. It doesn't look like much was done since the last time, but I've added more border and finished up a couple of undone motifs. I'm hoping to finish this thing this month.

  • I should post something here

    To start: Surgery went well and Ike is resting as best he can in the PICU. He's complaining of a headache (duh) and so far no nausea (yes!) So we…

  • The long, dark, tea time of the soul

    I hate this time of year. This is when the dolrums of depression really start smacking me around. It's not as bad as other years, but it's…

  • Well the easy part is over.

    Ike had his tonsils out this morning and is now asleep. Lots of crying and screaming (as much as someone who just had his tonsils removed can do) in…
