Finally - An Update!!

This month is just kicking my hind end!! It seems like we have just been going and going, but it is getting close to everything settling down again - well as much as life ever settles down:)

I do have a little stitching to show off, though most of it is/was late for dead lines. And about half of it was goodies found in my mail, not stitched by my hand, but that counts as finishes in my book too:)

 I did this one as an exchange for a Yahoo board I am on. It turned out so cute, thanks to an idea that my dd had for it. The design had you stitch what was to look like lace all around the edges and on the heart. I hate stitching with white though, I just never can make it look like I want it to. My dd suggested that I hand sew on some lace then, so that's what I did, and I think it turned out really well.
 UMM, this one is still Spring Ornie from Prairie Schooler. Yes, this is my ornie project for MARCH!! I wouldn't count on it getting done this month either.
 And here is a piece I received in the mail. This was a 'bird' themed block exchange. I love the bright and happy colors on this:)
And finally, this is what I received in the mail as part of the seasons/holiday exchange that I did the heart piece for. I love the Blackbird Stocking!!!

It'll be another busy couple of weeks, but I'm hoping to get a few more projects done. Hopefully I'll be able to blog a bit more, but if not, I'll get back to regular blogging pretty soon:)

Hi Shannon, I really like your heart that you sewed the lace around. I would hate to say how many unfinished things I have right at the moment. Some take longer then others such as my baby quilts. Hopefully I can get one completed that is almost. Custom orders of tea towels come first. I have not tried to do counted cross stitch. I keep getting told I would like it, but I guess I am scared to try. Have a wonderful weekend. Hopefully it will be a warm sun shiny weekend. Your Missouri Friend.
