Elf Christmas Banner

Hi All,

Just finished my Christmas Banner which as of right now is the ONLY banner in my stitching group.  That will probably change, but at least I'm out in front.  I'm going to try and stitch Christmas canvases during December and finish up some things to send off in January. 2018 is going to be a finishing year in my house - it's starting to pile up in the finished canvases drawer.

Here are some photos.   I think my friends were more impressed by the beaded letters than anything else.  It does look cool with three different color beads.  I was impressed that I was able to "scatter" the snowflakes randomly.  Go figure.  Also, there were 47! rows of T-stitch under their feet.  That was a challenge!!

If I don't get back, everyone have a Merry Christmas!

Finger Recovery

Hi there,

I've been doing a lot of stitching lately (more than usual) and my fingertips are pretty poked out.  Plus my poor eyes need a break from staring through the magnifier.  So for a few days I'm switching over to my new 13 canvas.

Here's the latest on the cookbook.  Yes, Diane I did redo the chain stitch. And you are right, it doesn't look one bit better or worse.

And here is the "finger recovery piece".  I can even stitch this with my left hand if I want.  And nice easy stitches - no thinking involved!

And if I ever send in a clip for America's Funniest Videos this is it!  I don't know which one of them is more frozen in place!

Congratulations to Emily our favorite Good Dog Citizen 💓💓

Love you,

All That Work

And I went back to the Cookbooks ...go figure.  They are like an old shoe and I guess as long as I want to work on them that's a good thing.  Plus they are right in front of me on my desk.  That helps.

Just finished the fork and spoon book and I'm going to move on to the burgundy book next.  We have been attacked by germ warfare here in this house so I have plenty of time. BUT NO FRIENDS since I'm in isolation.

Have a great weekend.  Hopefully none of you live in New Orleans.  It seems like the weather has turned against everyone this year.  Yuk.

Auditioning Projects

Hi there,

I've been cleaning out my stash (well organizing it...not quite ready to "clean out") and decided to audition some of my WIPs for my next project.

 Mind you these are just the BIG ones, as in ones I can't hide very well.  Oh My!

One month TOPS left

The one I really want to do next

On my blog as a constant reminder.  There is hope here because I outlined the path last Saturday

One of the first.  All tent.

Waiting on Lisa to finish President of ANG.

What can I say - need to work on the background and lady 4

This is huge and have to finish the leaves.  But so cute

Have a great Wednesday!
