I'm Back

I was surprised at how long it has been since I last posted.  Time goes by so fast.  It can boggle the mind. We are staying indoors trying to stay cool.  At least the temperature has not been in the 100's for the last week.  Our A/C was working overtime, thank goodness it didn't give out.
  I have been doing a lot of stitching and loving it. I finished the small ornie that I did for my aunt as well as a get well card. Her surgery went well and the pathology on her breast tissue showed that they have a clean margin.  Now she just has to endure Chemo because of the type of cancer that it is.  Amazingly, she has had very little pain. Here are the the card and ornie finishes.
I managed to bring out my Sweet Pea Fairy, she now has legs and wings.  I was surprised that the wings worked up as well as they did.  They are all done with Kreinik #4 very fine braid.  I love all the sparkle. I have to do the beads and the swirls around her and then she will be finished. Here she is for you to see.       

I also managed to finish my part in the ongoing Round Robin for Jayne's Attic. This one was Teddy Bears, cute to stitch. I had to concentrate on my stitching as this one was stitched \\\ and crossed back ///, which is the opposite from the way I stitch.  I ended up doing a little frogging but not too bad. The whole piece is cute.  Her is the picture for you to she the two that I stitched and the whole piece.                                 
Well I guess I have rambled on long enough.  I hope everyone is well and staying cool. Take care.
