UFO finish Happy Dance

I have been absent due to the fabulous weather. We have been hiking, (which feels really good), cleaning up the landscape, cleaning windows and patio furniture, Kellie has baseball, etc.
The last couple of days has took a turn for the worst. It is dark, cold and rainy.
It was sunny for a few hours yesterday, just enough time for me to decide to take a few pics.
It's not a huge happy dance, but I am pleased to get it out of the box, lol.

Warm Winter Wishes by Waxing Moon Designs

It's a little crooked due to laying in the grass, that needs to be cut.
I also made a biscornu and in the process of making a second one.

Autumn Biscornu by Helga Mandl

Silly me, stitched the first one by turning the fabby, so I have the diagonal corners stitched the wrong way. Not on the second one though, I marked it.

I was so happy to win LHN "My Needle's Work" over at Sharon's blog. I have have admired her blog, way before I even started my own blog. She does some awesome stitching and is so friendly. Sew! Go take a visit and see what I mean.

A very big Thanks to Sharon for being so generous (((hugs)))

I will leave you with a few pics from my yard.

P.S. Here is a Quaker freebie

I am off to play catch up on my almost 300 unread blog post in my GR.

Happy Stitching!!

Do The Frappucinno Dance

Hi! I finally finished Frappucinno and here is the results...

I started The Peacock Sampler by The Goode Huswife. I don't know the fabric, I am using Vikki Clayton silks.

There are my new Gingher Emma scissors in the 4" and 8".

I recieved my BBD #30 Rites of Spring, plus the 30ct Irish Creme fabby thru the auto-ship. Arghhh! The fabby is cut short AGAIN. I have talked to others and they dont get shorted the 3" border. Sew! I will be doing my auto-ship somewhere else.

Any recommendations?

It's not a life or death thing, but I would like what everyone is getting for their money. I like to have the extra, just in case. Rather to be safe then sorry.

Happy Stitching!!

23 Years and still going

Dan and I celebrated our 23rd Anniversary on Sunday the 6th. We went out Saturday nite and did yard work and cooked out on Sunday. The photo is so funny. We look so young, lol. We were both 21 yrs old. Did I just give my age away? lol.
We are officially going to be in-laws. Brianna's mommy and daddy are engaged to be married in December in Hawaii, thats the plans so far. We will see.
What do you think I should go with the yellow windows or the black windows? The black just looked so gloomy, but I am thinking now the contrast is better.

Some stitchers had e-mailed me about the Shepherd's Bush Baby Bug Ball chart, if I was going to give it away. Sorry! It's gone! I mailed it to Cindy kinda like a trade. I had won her Pale Eggs kit, so I thought it was appropriate to send her BBB. Life around here has been so crazy. My google reader is yelling at me like a million other things. I try to go thru a few at a time. I have my Emma Ginghers and forgot to take a pic, next post I suppose. I have been working on Warm Winter Wishes and that will be finished soon.

Well, I better go and read a few blogs.

Thanks so much for visiting me.

Happy Stitching!

Don't forget to floss!!!!

1st of the month ATS progress

Hello! Well another month has passed me by so fast and here's the progress on And They Sinned. I started it on 01-01-08, so this is three months of stitching.
Is that half way????
I was going through the bowels of my WIP totes and found this Warm Winter Wishes by Waxing Moon. I am going to have this finished by the 1st day of summer, if not sooner. I think I threw it away because the white snow don't show up very well. I am going to try ecru and see if that works. I am stitching it on 36 ct In The Clouds linen.

Last Saturday I was going to get a mat for Midnight Stroll. On the way there I stopped at a church rummage sale and found this frame for a quarter.Can you believe it? I think it suits it just fine. I love the little dainties of it. I saved money not having to have a mat cut to size. Its not a very good pic, the weather is so gloomy, so the lighting is terrible.

And another thing I cant believe is that I won the contest for the SB Pale Eggs kit on Cindy's blog that she was offering. Go over and give her a big Howdy!! She has an awesome blog. Thanks Cindy

I put some time aside for tomorrow to play catch up on blogs, I hope it works out, hehe. The posts are really accumulating.

I have a question on my last post. How come the SB framed photo is clickable but not the BBD wip? They are the same size and was downloaded at same time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Happy Stitching!!
