latest update

I worked on Legend and I got some more done. I figured out that I had put the wrong color - I used 782 which is a gold rather than 553 which is a purple. A little over an hour later, it made much more sense. I then put it aside to work on that bird heart wreath I started back in 1993.

Speaking of which, I was able to finish it today, 4-21-2009, at 2 pm, right before work. Yay me! I am pretty sure I started it back in April or May of 1993, as I know I worked on it during the 8th grade trip. I don't remember where we went, but I do remember stitching on that project in the back of the bus. I am really happy now that the stupid thing is done. lol I only call it that because I was sick of it hanging on. But it is really pretty.

Which pixie?

I was trying to decide which pixie I should do next. I was going to do Fern but now I'm not sure. What do you think?









Lily of the Valley:

Morning Glory

Rose: (I want to stitch her twice - once for me and once for Relay For Life to raffle off)

Well I was able to finish the plums and I am definitely happy with that one. It's a lot prettier than I thought it would be.

I also got further on the sorceress - both the medium and dark blues. I should be able to get through the lighter blue bit with next week's game session. I look forward to seeing how she'll look.

While I was filling in for the church secretary (very few phone calls and not much to do) I got some work done on the heart bird wreath for mom. I wonder how far I'll be able to get this week. No pics yet, I'll put one up next week. I also want to get back to Legend. The wip pics were put up on the white willow stitching web site. How cool is that?

Here is how far I got on the SAL Sorceress this week. It's week #4. I've gotten all of the only variations color done and went to the darker one. Really there's 2 colors there. I hope next week I'll be able to get to (or maybe through) the lighter version bit.

Here's the summer plums feng shui. I had hoped to get it done but considering I only picked it back up 2 weeks ago, I think it's going well. I should get it done by next week I think.

Here's the bamboo picture I had done before the plums. I had finished this back in 2002. There are 2 other kits in the feng shui ones, tho I don't know when I'll get to the fall mums or the winter water lilies.

some older pics

Tannith's dice bag:




The Purr-Rawrrs I made for Kattie and Matt:

I made this one for mom - it's a needlepoint picture. I entered it in a needlework competition last November.

Dolphin picture I made that I entered in the same needlework competition. I had stitched the whole thing because I liked the pink fan corals.

The prayer of St Francis picture I made for the church. I finished it back in 2004 and I also entered it in the same competition.

This is another picture I did for the church. I finished it almost a whole year ago and finally got it framed a few weeks ago.

This is the other Noah's ark picture I did for the church. It took quite a while as the elephants were really hard to stitch. I finished it back in December I think. I got it framed at the same time. It looks really good framed.

This is how far I had gotten on my two geishas

This is one of the vases I did.

This is the other vase.

This is the little samurai I stitched.

This is Mai, one of the geishas.

I did this for Mary for Christmas. The kit only cost me $1 and I changed the background from the 14 count plain white aida to the 28 count African daisy I had. Much nicer.

This is the first of the bird afghan I started a while ago. There are like 8 birds and verses.

This is one of the peacock pics I did.

Here's another peacock picture I did.

This is the kingfisher that Aunt Carol commissioned me to do
