The Blog is On Hold

I regret to say I must put my blogging on hold for a few weeks.  My grandmother is very ill and will not be with us much longer.  FH, Gus, and I are getting ready to make the drive back home to New Mexico so I can spend some time with her before she is gone.

I will be taking stitching projects to work on, but I won't be posting pictures until I'm home.

Until we meet again!

A Second Complete Snowlady!

I finished the caroling snowlady this week.

So far I have baking and caroling.  

Next up: ice skating!

Stitching and Minis

I'm still recovering from our trip south last weekend, but I've been busy with projects.  Here's a look at the American Goldfinch.
 All that's left is the background.  I've got less than three skeins of the background color left to work with.  It shouldn't be long now.

While we were on the road last weekend, I wanted a stitching project that was small and easy to work on in the car or while seated with others.  I dug out six small kits for ornaments and got started on one.  This snowlady is baking gingerbread cookies here.
The same snowlady is/will be caroling in this ornament.
Whilst not stitching, I had to start making some minis for my sick friend.  The same friend who is loosing her battle with cancer.  She's been working on a holiday store... not just Christmas, but all the holidays, and hasn't felt up to finish stocking the shelves.  So I decided to give her a hand.

There are lots of teddy bears, six wall hangings, two Halloween pull toys, and two Easter baskets.

I've got some other little things for her holiday shop in mind.  Once I get them figured out I'll be sharing them here.

That's it for this week.  See everyone next time!

No Post for September 1

FH and I just arrived home from a long weekend down south.  No post this week due to complete lack of pictures.  I'll see everyone next Sunday with at least two projects to show off.
