Mermaids & Wednesday SAL

I managed to get a little bit of Mermaids stitched before I had to get ready for work.

Then when I got home I was talking to Crystal and she reminded me it's Wednesday so time for 'On Christmas Day' update. Crap I totally forgot and haven't stitched on it. She said that, that gives her and Wendy time to catch up. LOL. So I sneaked in a hours worth of stitching on it last night.

I think maybe today I will pick up a different one of the 15 and get some progress done on that. Maybe 'Wise Old Owl'. Happy Stitching!

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!

I'm bad

After having so many problems with starting new projects the last few days what do I go and do.... I start a valentines project yesterday. Lol I know sad isn't it? Well I work on it some this morning and it's almost done. But I did pick out a couple of other vday patterns to do for ornaments. (A couple will be in my giveaway i'm sure) I got all happy and excited yesterday. I went to the dollar store to look and found the styrofoam circles that I use for some ornaments. One package had smaller ones (12 in it) and the little bit bigger circles had 6 in it. Each package was a dollar. I'm so going back and cleaning them out! Well i'm off to finish stitching on my vday pattern and maybe hopefully pick up Snoopy's 'I love you' since it's almost complete. Happy Stitching!

Day 15 the last day!

I actually managed to get some good stitching in yesterday. Which to me felt good after not wanting to start new things these last few days. I picked up Grumpy Bear. He's always been my favorite care bear so I need him stitched and hung up! I am trying Jobelan. I am actually falling in love with this fabric. I am so going to start using it! I'm also feeling accomplished because i'm finally doing a bigger piece over 2. Yay I feel like I've leveled up. LOL. Alright i'm off to a bridal show. My best friend while growing up is getting married this year and she wants me to go with her today. It should be a lot of fun! Well Happy Stitching to you all!
