Santa and Three Quarters of a Penguin

I've been on vacation to what appears to be a movie location....oh wait! it was one!

Bora Bora really is paradise- no wonder the mutineers didn't want to leave these islands.  It was hard to stitch because I couldn't stop looking at the view!

But I'm back now and here's Santa

And 3/4 of a Penguin!

I only have one more critter left and the background.  I think I'll start the background today.

Have a great weekend 😎

Meet Darryl the Caroler

Oops need to trim that fringe on the right... and that's why I'm not a hairdresser!

Too Much Fun!

Here's my mini wreath from Sew Much Fun.  And it is SOO MUCH FUN to stitch!  It's perfect for a little candle in the middle or the smallest tree on the planet!

First thing I thought of after finishing this guy was SOUTHPARK!

And the reindeer- so cute with the velvet turkey work. His nose is stitched twice with neon rays - makes a big difference.

Next up is the polar bear 😄

My Florida Orange

Here's my Florida orange.   Let me tell you it will be a while before I do another project that calls for encroaching gobelin with Flair!

Only one more fruit to go - my apple.  Already checked - no Flair involved!

I think I'll do something Christmasy next 😊

Tony Tony Tony

Hi there,

This post will have to be super short since these 2 furry children are waiting for dinner.

It's hard to believe that a week ago we were in class with Tony M!  This was my first class with him and I am doing Cardinal Cradle which was a good pick for me.  I was able to get through the whole stitch guide without stressing out since these Charlie Harper pieces are abstract and there's not a lot of detail.

Mostly what I heard in class was Tony Tony Tony!  We were a needy group!  I have to admit the nest weaving is tedious but the embellishments will be fun.  That's floral moss tacked down.  When I'm through complaining about weaving the nest I will move on to complaining about outlining the leaves.

Here's what I'm working on while binge watching "Victoria" which I somehow missed when it was originally on TV.  This is an orange that goes with the rest of Molly's fruit and will be placed in my one and only Nantucket Basket that I wove (just looked that past tense up)  in the second week of March.  Yes,  there's been a lot of  weaving in my life recently.

And here is egg #2 which just needs it's ribbon flowers now.  Love the sequin necklace around the one chick.

The two babies in the first picture are now crying so got to go.

Have a Happy Easter,
