Purse & Greek Update

Well first off the Greek flag arrived today in NY and they loved it. So i'm happy about that. Second I went to moms again and worked on my purse. It's coming along nicely. Not too much left to do but put it all together really. Everyone keeps saying "your not done yet?" LoL my mom's boyfriend told her today man with as much as she is spending in gas to come over she could of bought 10 purses. My mom responded with you know what them commercials say "time spent with a mother. Priceless!" I thought that was cute. But we are going to see a movie on sat can't wait. And then Monday work on the purse again. My mom has to take pictures to show some of her co-workers because she keeps bragging about the purse. So as soon as she takes them ill post pictures on here of it. On other stitching news I've gotten just a bit done on L. His colors are so drab (mainly browns and grays) they are making me depressed. So i'm moving along slowly with him. Also i'm trying to create a pattern but i'm having issues doing the words that I want in a stitching font I really like. Awhile ago on one of the forums i'm on someone posted a cute poem about starting new projects and I mentioned that it would be cute stitched up. So thats what i'm trying to do. I really just need to break down and buy PC stitch pro. I've got a great border picked out and i'm going to use variegated purple and metallic purple threads. And i'm going to put purple beads in it also. LoL I don't like purple do I? Well I think I've rambled enough tonight.

Greek Flag

I mailed the Greek Flag this morning so it's on its way to New York. I just had to share a picture of the frame that I got for it... to me it screams Greek. The picture isn't the greatest. My scanner doesn't like to pick up stuff like that but you can at least see the weathered look a little bit.

Well I haven't stitched much lately. I'm sadly addicted to mmorpgs like World of Warcraft. It's sad I know. lol I had quit playing for a few months and I just started back up again so less stitching time now. I'm still trying to stitch at least every other day. I feel cranky if I don't get any stitching time in. So anyways I did get the handmade tag done. The kitty is sooo cute!
Also I managed to sew the inside pocket up for my purse. I go back over to my mom's on Monday night to work on the purse some more.

As you can see i'm not the greatest at sewing with a machine! Hopefully though you wont be able to tell too much when the purse is complete.
So now I need something new to stitch! I thought about starting that angel I bought but i'm not much in an angel mood (nor a very complex pattern mood). I asked some stitching friends over at 1337 if they could make me a big stitching project of Tohru & Yuki. So until that gets complete I think ill stitch up a little mojo project of L from Death Note for John. He loved that anime.
