Here it is the 3rd of September, hard to believe. Someone said to me the other day that we only have 120 or so days left until Christmas. I just gaped at them in horror. Christmas already !!!! Impossible !!!! But time just keeps marching on. LOL
On a stitching note, I have been busy. I finished adding the beads to Olivia by Loopy Lou and now just need to find a frame.
I finished a fun piece which says all there is to say in regards to housework. My DH had a good chuckle when he saw what it said. I will display it prominently for all to see. hee hee !!!
I am in a Just Nan SAL on Jayne's Attic and am doing a lot of smalls at the moment. This one is called Painted Lady (a freebie from the 1998 Charlotte Trade show) I just need to get the enameled butterfly for the center and will do that when I go to the LNS this afternoon. I love the simplicity of the design.
This next piece is a small ornie kit from Kreinik that is as old as the hills. I think I bought it sometime in the 80's and just found it. Some of the threads in it were so old that they fell apart when I started to stitch with them, so I had to get more. Mainly the blending filament and the Japan gold. it stitched up fast . There is another two or three companion pieces floating around the house somewhere. hope I find them soon. LOL It is very sparkly.
And last is a Humbug that I stitched for an exchange on the EMS board. I used one of her designs. This was my first humbug, so I may rethink the top and bottom stitching the next time so more of the stitching shows. I am just not sure. Maybe a repetitive design would have been a better idea for the next one. I am not sure. That is something to think about anyway. I don't think this one turned out too bad though.
Well that is my offerings for today. I hope everyone enjoys the week end. And I also hope that all those living on the East coast don't get hit too bad from the hurricane that is coming in.
