In Stitches

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

Wow, it's been a long time...

No I did not drop off the face of the planet. I just got bored and distracted and retreated for a while. I didn't even realize it had been this long since I'd updated.

I wish I could say I had loads and loads to show you, but I can't. I just haven't been in a stitching mood for a while. I do have some pics, but mostly Greg's. :D

I did get my owl framed finally and I finished a project that I had worked on forEVER. I guess sometimes we just need a break. Of course it didn't help that right after Xmas I got a nasty cold/virus thingy that didn't give up for over a month.

Anyhoo! Here is my framed owl!

Here is the project that I was working on for such a long time. I guess I mainly got bored with, even though when I started it I really wanted to do it. Just fickle I suppose. ;)

Greg finished up this project for me. I had begged him to stitch something fantastic for me after he finished his Evangeline. I had bought this pattern and knew he would make it turn out great and it did! I LOVE IT!

And here are some mini-projects that he did for charity donations at work.

Other than that nothing much to report. I am working on a charity stitch for Greg and I like it. It should go fairly fast.

I can't believe it's going to be Valentines day already! Seems like it was Xmas just last week. :D Hope everyone is doing well. I know you've been stitching cuz I keep lurking around your blogs. ;D Take care!

Great to see you back. What lovely finishes, and the frame you picked for Owl is awesome. I wouldn't have thought of an oval, but it is perfect for it.

Good to see you around again!! I love all your framing....I'm currently scouring the thrift stores, looking for the perfect frame for my first attempt at framing by myself.

Hi Kim, liked your owl piece as well as the mini charity project pieces. You will laugh but the pumpkins in the lady's frame reminded me of nothing other than Cinderella story :)
