Friday Night Sew In

After looking forward to Friday night for a while, I was pretty upset that I ended up fairly under the weather, and unable to acheive much. I did however work a little on this...

And I thought I would share a little bit of my never ending project.....

which I can never get to photograph up the right way :-p Theres not much left, just finish the border, 1 more butterfly and the stitches down the bottom are part of a dragonfly. I of course have to replace my walk about threads, and then after a few intense hours of backstitch she'll be done. Maybe by the end of the month?? One can only hope. lol.

Happy Stitching :)

Making a List...

Hmm.. Is it already a week since I last posted? Time absolutly flies!
So what have I been up to? Well I've done a little more on Lilac Fairy, bought some wool and knitting needles, and this morning I had started to see if I could make a sock and I got about 3 rounds done when DD#2 promptly pulled out 1 of the needles and poked me with it! Grrr. Maybe, just maybe I'll try it again when they are all asleep. Does anyone know of any easy beginner sock patterns?

So whats on the list for today? Well I can do a little more on Lilac Fairy but 2 of the colors seem to have gone walk about so I will have to wait before I can completly finish her now. Hopefully I can put a pic up again of her later. Also I can work on Freinds Forever bear. And I will be posting over on my other little corner which you can find on my sidebar, where I hope to share my insights into the rest of life.

All this will keep me busy and the love of stitching alive :)

Happy Stitching :)

Not a stitchy update today as even though I've been working on Lilac Fairy theres not enough to worry about taking another picture yet.

What I am waiting for is my baby sampler kit to arrive. It's taking forever. Maybe while I wait I'll finish off my Friends Forever bear. Hmm..Decisions, Decisions. lol.

I love looking at everyones blogs and getting inspiration to keep going, and with our busy lives we need that more than we know.

Happy Stitching :-)

Pondering Progress

I really could go for a break right now. The weather is cool and Im getting ready to dive back into my stitching. So I wondered if you would like to sit awhile with me and see what we can get done :-)
Of course I come prepared. Please, help yourself to a slice and a cup of whatever you desire :-)

After a crazy week with my grandparents visiting and DHubby coming and going, its no wonder I felt a little under the weather for a while. And the thing that frustrated me most was that I wasnt getting any stitching done and my finishes werent appearing as I would have liked. So this week I said to myself that I really wanted to get Lilac Fairy finished, since it was already nearly a month after I had planned to get her finished.

So I  thought, as we sit here and warm up, that I would share the progress I have made so far...

I have a little bit to go (A lot of backstitch :-P) but it shouldnt be that much longer, I hope.

Happy Stitching :-)
