My Birthday Today!

I had a pretty good birthday! My family took me to Outback Steakhouse which is pretty yummy! Oh, and for the first time in a long while, I didn't have to work on my birthday!

Happy Dance!

This is Dragonfly Duo, a kit by Dimensions. I added beads instead of the french knots.

Another New Friend

This one is a Cooper's Hawk. He's sitting there at the bird bath waiting for a bird to come down. He likes to kill and eat doves, pigeons, and small birds. I wonder what will come visit us next!

More Progress on Dragon Ride

Well, I got all the cross stitches done. All that's left is the backstitching and beads. I seriously doubt that I'll be able to finish it before the new year but that's fine with me.

Egypt Garden Progress

Well, I didn't get as much done this week that I hoped I would. With Thanksgiving and my having to work on Saturday, I wasn't able to sit and stitch for most of the week. But progress is progress right?

A New Friend!

This little guy showed up on our back porch the other night. He didn't seem at all scared of us. I'm not sure what kind of owl he is but I'll try to find out. * Edited to add that he is an Eastern Screech Owl.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

TW Monday's Progress

It's so very close to a finish! I may finish up the border sometime this week just so I can be done with all the cross stitching on it and just have the backstitching left. I'm very happy with the way he is turning out!

Dragonfly Duo Progress

This is my progress on Dragonfly Duo, a Dimensions kit. This week, I've been working on whatever I felt like that day. So, basically, I just got a few stitches in here and there but I worked the most on Dragonfly Duo. I'll be working on Dragon Ride today for TW Monday and then the rest of the week I will work on Egypt Garden.

New Stash!

Yay! Some stash came in the mail today! I got two different fabrics which means I can now start two new projects! (As if I really needed that!) My two new projects are going to be Little Snap Dragon by Kustom Krafts and Cut Thru Pirate Ship by Bothy Threads. So much for trying to keep my WiP pile small!

My Progress on Dragon Ride

I'm so close to a finish on this! Of course, I saved all the backstitching for the end but I'm hoping that it won't take too long once I get to that point. I have tried to backstitch as I go (as you can see on 25th Anniversary below)but I'm just not that comfortable with it.

Ha Ha!

This is Freckles. Tonight we discovered he likes sour cream! He was licking the sides of the empty container.

My SL Progress

Here is my 25th Anniversary by The Silver Lining. In case you can't figure out what it's supposed to be, it's going to be 2 white roses.

Myspace Layouts
Myspace Layouts

I'm currently fighting sinus/allergy stuff at the moment. The headaches have been pretty bad but I'm hoping once the weather figures what it wants to do, I'll be able to get better.
