See? I have been working on it! With camping trips, moving furniture, the Holidays, and everything else, I'm surprised I've gotten this much done! This is my latest progress on my hardanger piece from Andrea's SAL.

Here is my new room with my bed in it. No, I didn't make the quilt. I am working on one for my bed though. Of course, I have to finish one quilt for each of my two cousins and 3 quilts for my Sis. Actually, Two of the quilts for my Sis are hers that she pieced but she wants me to do the top quilting and binding for her. I can't wait to start hanging things back up on the wall!

As promised, here are some pics of my collectibles on my new shelves. I never realized that I had so many stuffed animals!


Ok, well, my birthday was Saturday. I had a good day, went shopping, got a cheesecake from my Sis, and I got the day off from work when I thought that I was going to be working. Yay! Today, I have food poisoning. Ugh! We had tacos and I think my jar of taco sauce was the culprit. Tomatoes are not kind when they have gone bad. I'm slowly starting to feel better.

My New Room

Here is cute little snake that has been hanging around our flower beds. It was a cool day and he came out to sun himself and warm up. A quick google search told me that this little guy is a Gulf Coast Ribbon Snake.

Here is my room that I am redecorating. Yes, it's purple! I love it! You can see the shelves that we built and hung up around the top of the walls.

It's my plan to put several little things on the shelves such as my frogs/Kermit collection, several Egyptian pieces, dragons, and other things. I may get some more pics of that when I get everything put up there.

Here's my new curtians. I'm hoping to start moving furniture back in soon!

Tis the Season!

Tis the Season to be busy, fa la la..... Ha ha. I am still working on redecorating the room. I'm making, painting, and hanging shelves around the top of the walls for collectables and such. I'll try to get a photo of it when I'm done so it will make sense. Anyway, that has been a very tedious job to say the least. I have been able to stitch for only about an hour each night so that's going slowly. Then, of course, there's next week. I'm taking my little cousins camping for a couple of days, then there's Thanksgiving, and I have to babysit all weekend. Yep, busy. So, if there are no more updates for a while, you will understand why.

Hardanger SAL Progress

Here is my progress on the Hardanger SAL designed by Andrea, I know I didn't get much done but I seem to have several projects going at the same time. I am in the middle of re-painting and re-decorating my room. It's been the same for 15+ years so I finally decided it was time for a change. It's alot of work but I'm excited! Anyway, I'm going to try to get more of the hardanger done soon. I love how it's looking so far!

Puppies and Frogs!

This is Julie. She's growing so fast now! She even lost a baby tooth last week. She is getting so destructive here lately. She loves to chew and rip things up like the newspaper, pillows, stuffed animals, and even the phone book. And as you can see from the pic, she insists on sleeping on your pillow! Yes, she's my Sister's dog but until she grows out of the puppy stage, she stays with me.

Here is my latest progress on "I'll Make My Own Happy Ending" by Dragon Dreams. I don't really enjoy stitching with metallic threads that much but they sure do make a project "pop." The shoe is done in pearl metallic thread for those who are not familiar with this design. There's also going to be a gold metallic crown on the frogs head.
