Long Time no post

It's been a while since I have posted anything but so much has been going on in my world that I just have not had either time or energy to do any updating.

I decided to get productive today and do some framing.  Broke out the unfinished frames for 3..picked out paint colors and when to stretching..I am pleased with the results.

This is "Harried Hare"..for my grandsons...I fought with the D@x# rabbit the entire time but now that it is framed I am rather pleased with it.

This is "Bone Cheeks"  I love the way it turned out..I decided to do it with DMC vs the silks the patter called for and think I like it better.

This is an AAN Christmas Tree on Christmas Green fabric.  You can't see the beading detail from the photos but I really enjoyed stitching this one.  I have several more of her patterns that I am going to be working on.

Finally another christmas piece by Blue Ribbon Designs...I think I like the frame color..have to let it grow on did bring out all of the greens in the stitching.

I hope things will calm down a little so I can update a little more often but ya never know what is going to happen.

Finally a few finishes!

I have been so busy stitching and working I have not posted in a while.  I have finished a few things which is living up to my promise to myself at the begining of the year to at least finish 2 WIPS before starting a new project.

So does this mean I get to start 2???  I am only starting 1...not enough done to really see what I am doing but am also working away on another WIP.  WIP & kitted up box needs some thining out so I have an excuse to kit up more  Couldn't sleep Saturday morning..up at 4 AM so kitted up 5 more projects and into the box they went.

Work has been crazy since the first of the year, getting geared up for our busy season and hopefully will continue to be busy just have to wait and see.

Final phase of dental work begins tomorrow...going in to have the impressions made of my mouth and then...tada...on 4/16/12 I am having there rest of my teeth pulled.  Dentist advised I could spend another fortune on my mouth  but he would make no promises that they would stay. So together we decided this is my best option.  Will leave the office after that with a pretty smile!  I am looking forward to being able to eat pain free for the first time in years.  The old dentist made such a mess of my mouth I don't think anyone could have fixed it.

Will spend the week letting the swelling go down...the pain get under control and stitching and reading...could you ask for a better week?  Will have to be in shape as that Saturday will be PINS and don't want to miss that!

Long post...time to update

It has been almost 2 months since I posted and life has been crazy.  The holidays, working, club meetings, name it and it's been nuts!

The holidays were almost peaceful this year...just 6 of us for both Thanksgiving and Christmas...sad in a way but nice in a way also.  I was so proud of myself with shopping this was all cash. No credit card use at all!

My husband bought me a very nice Vera Bradley stitching bag.  It holds 8 projects, my portable Ott Lite, all of my gadgets and 3 sets of Q-Snaps with plenty of room.  I love it! Makes carrying everything so much easier.

I have gotten a WIP done!

I love the does not do it justice.  It is called "Fog".

I am making progress on the (****) bunny...

I hope to have it finished in the next 10 days.  I won't get any stitching done during the week this week tho.  I will be in Alabama all week on business...not really looking forward to it.  One of the parts of my job I really dislike.  I have been informed I will have to do more traveling...more work and no extra pay for's "expected".  All I can say is I am lucky to have a job...I just have to keep telling myself that.

Waiting on test results for my dad.  Apparently he has Stage 3 kidney disease.  No diagnosis yet...keeping our fingers crossed...
