must finish

I started these 2 pictures before Christmas and I am determined to finish them before I pick up any other project.
 The weather here has been all over the place sometimes bone chilling cold -48 with wind chill and then windy and +6. the fog did make some beautiful trees though
and also time to start slowly putting away the christmas decorations.

Thanksgiving update

here in Canada it is Thanksgiving weekend and a sunny beautiful one it is.I hope this week I will finish the scales and move on up. All the gaps on the fins are for beads, there are a lot of beads on this gal. For those that are celebrating I hope you have a wonderful visit with family and friends

Sunday Oct 6

Finally I can see the tail, I was getting a little bit bogged down but it is amazing what seeing a picture can do for the mojo.
Also did some stitching on the Red Snowman. I am not to thrilled with the coverage, the instructions called for just one thread but I will stitch some with 2 threads and see what happens. Might be a whole lot of frogging in my future.

Enchanted Mermaid Week 2

So glad I finished that white chunk, my beads and krenik threads should be here later this week and it will be nice to fill in the gaps. I did not stitch a lot this week because my best friend was sick for a few days.
His dog food gave him some serious tummy problems, he was vomiting. His vet advised me to make his food for awhile and I think I will no longer use commercial dog food.At least when I make his food I know what is in it.

March already

Jill Rensel sent some choices for 2 of my pictures. And here is my weeks worth of stitching. It looks sort of strange right now. For some reason(unknown to me) I always like to stitch the face first and then move to the right side, go all the way down to the bottom and then stitch from the bottom up.

Real happy to say I can post a finish. Tigerlily is done
And now for my wip. Its is the Blue Geisha from Joan Elliott.I love her designs. Almost have her face on, I have been counting and recounting my stitches because I do not want to frog these small ones.
Usually I don't bead and backstitch until the end but she is big so I am going to do them as I go.

Sunday, February 3, 2013


Not done not even a good excuse.there is only some beads to put on.spent the day pulling fabric and looking at patterns. I think I will start a geisha from Joan Elliott.

I usually like to update my blog on Sunday evening but I am one day late and I have a good reason for being late. I stayed up very late last night to finish Touching The Autumn Sky.
This week I will work on Tigerlily and maybe she will be finished soon.

My week started off good and then my husband came down with that stomach virus so not a lot of stitching was done. All is well now so I can get back to stitching again.
