A Finish

What a fun piece to stitch....   I have used my own colors for the hats... and glow in the dark white DMC floss...   I can't wait to finish this one and get it hanging... I just love the way it turned out.

Finishing an older piece.

I went through my roll of finished smalls.... and pulled put this one.  The stitching was completed in.... omg... 2005!  wow... that is crazy....   I didnt think I had any smalls that old to finish.   I had a turkey one from Bent Creek too.  I am going to have to look for ribbon for this one though. 

This was a Bent Creek zipper kit.

Stitching Updates... Almost finished!

This is just an update of where this piece is at... we have been pretty busy and I have not had time to stitch all that much.   This piece is so fun to stitch. The pics were taken last night.
I am using glow in the dark floss fo the eyes and the bones.   I have used my own choices for colors on the hats... and have used some backstitch on the bones.  I LOVE this piece...

Tonight's stitching

It is late but I was so pleased with the way this piece is starting to look I had to share with you.   Tonight my grandbaby sat and played with all her toys and i was able to stitch like crazy... it was such a good relaxing evening.  This is being stitched on a 28 ct evenweave that was an oopsie dye lot.  I am usinf DMC flosses....  The chart is Alley Quartet by Barbara Ana Designs.  I am looking for my glow in the dark white dmc floss... I want to stitch the eyes and fish bones in that.  
Thank you for looking... and keep crossing those stitches. 

Updates on Life....

I lost my job a few weeks back.  I have been trying to wrap my head around it all.  I had seen some things of the signs.... but had hoped it would work its way out.  With the way my life has been going ... I was not shocked that I was released.   I was lucky enough to get a HUGE severance which has allowed me to pay off the cars... and we are going to take a much needed vacation.  On top of that i have some to place in savings.    I just received in the mail a letter about grants I am eligable for to go back to school... I am debating this... and hoping to get a degree... that would be so cool. 
This is giving me time off to be with the grandbaby... she is so precious.   Time off with the puppies... they are cutie pies... and time off to try to heal.  -

I will post stitchy updates a little later.... but wanted to leave you with a picture of our lil daisy!
