Progress & Happy Dances

First off I decided to join in on FNS.

I need an excuse to put down the cross stitching and pick up my quilt that I started forever ago. Also Eleni's purse that was suppose to be a Christmas/Birthday gift and still isn't complete. Click on the picture if you want to join.

Next I managed to get two Happy Dances yesterday! Yay!!!! One is 'Snoopy I Love You'. He just needed his head filled in. So it didn't take me too long.

And the second one is called 'Hearts A Plenty'. I've decided to share it. I haven't decided if this will go to my swap partner or my giveaway or me! Will have to see once I get some other vday ornaments done.

I had so much fun doing this one I am tempted to make another one. It has over two, over one, beads, rhodes hearts, and a little straight stitching. I still have to add the button. I'm just waiting for it in the mail.

Also I had some more time for stitching last night so I picked up Mermaids. I'm just loving this piece, getting to use hand dyed threads is fun. I just love the crescent colors ones. But I started using the weeks dyed last night and I don't like the feel of it as much as the crescent ones.

On my last post a couple of ppl asked about the styrofoam circles that I got. Here is a pic of them. I was wrong I picked up the bigger circle one and it has 2 instead of the 6 package one I thought I got.

I put the stitched design on one side and fabric or another stitched design on the other side. Put ribbon between the two for a hanger then glue them together and put a thicker ribbon around the outside to hide the seam.

Alright well thats enough babble for today. Off to do a bit of stitching before I need to get ready for work. Happy Stitching!
