Excuse the Dust

and confusion..

I NEEDED A CHANGE. I must be going through a late midlife crisis, LOL.. So I hope I don't confuse anyone too much... I am really into fantasy art and literature, so I guess I just headed that direction again...See ya later.

Last Weeks Stitching

I did get some stitching done this last week.
I started a new one (of course, I am a serial starter). It is my first HAED. I spent last week gridding and I got about 500 stitches into it. It is by Jasmine Becket-Griffith, one of my favoites, Where's my Valentine.
Then I got a few more stitches into The Kiss by Mirabilia. I hope to finish this one this year.
And finally, I worked on a frog biscornu as a gift for someone. It is a freebie design by Casey Buonaugurio.

Check out this exchange item

I received this from the wonderful Amy from an exchange we are in. I love it. I have been becoming the queen of scissors (well actually Vicki has that title, I'm just a princess, LOL). Anyway, she stitched this beautiful scissor block for me. I adore the colors and it is the perfect exchange surprise for me. I never would have thought of sending this as an exchange gift.. She also sent the wonderful sweet heart scissors with the block. hmmmm. Maybe the block needs a few more holes in the top, now I need to figure out which scissors to display in such a pretty way!!

Weekend Stitching

I was very selfish in my stitching and worked on something just for me! I worked on Mirabilia's The Kiss. I put a mask on the man in the design so he now is the phantom. It is stitched on 28ct Shimmering Romance by Silkweaver (although the color is much more blue than shown in the picture.. I managed to get all of him stitched and started on her arm and dress.

CC Cottage Garden

I finished these for an exchange this last week. The recipient should have them by now..

I am spending the weekend working on my Phantom version of the Kiss. I am thinking now I may want to go ahead and add the beads as I go. I would love to see how she looks with the beads through her hair :)...

I can post a Finish

now. It was for everyone's favorite stitcher Vonna...I had her name in an exchange. I made some minor changes to Blue Ribbons Tokens of Affection and made Tokens of My friendship. I kinda almost didn't send this one, LOL. She received it today so now I can show it off.. It is a stitcher's pocket. The first two pictures are the front: one with flap closed and one with the open. The third picture is the back. I changed affection to friendship and put Vonna's initials and the year on it! I am so glad she liked it.

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth

I am still here and stitching. I've been working on a project that I couldn't post pictures of, but hopefully today or tomorrow I will be able to. I also finished the main square of my fair and square and I will post it tomorrow... Today I am working on my Breast Cancer Awareness Biscornu for the Stitch a Cause SAL at the Needle Nook.

I've been looking at everyones blogs and you have been really busy lately. Keep up the great work everyone!

I've been very bad about

posting this last month, guess the season slowed me down!! Anyway, I really have been stitching and I have finished several things, some I can show, some I cannot. Here are the ones I can show you!!
The first is another frog pincushion I made for a birthday of one of my board members, Lori of Enchanted Fabrics. Her frog is pink..
Here is a Fob I made from a JN, I believe it is Snow Bonnets..
