I am almost 98% sure that I haven't stitched since the last photo of my orts. However, my last photo looked so bad that I decided to make up for the lack of new orts by trying to get a more attractive photo this time. So here it is. My jar wanted to pose next to the pond as well so I included that photo too.

Now I am going to try to go stitch for the rest of the day/night.

So I have been feeding my cousin's farm animals as stated in my last post. I went into their garage to get the cat food and came back out to see two raccoons waiting at the bowls wanting to be fed. So cute right?

I haven't gotten any stitching done because I did in fact catch the virus that was going around my family. After I started getting better, I had to catch up on all the stuff the hadn't been done while I was down. This weekend, I am planning to stitch till my hands fall off! Ha ha! That's the plan. We shall see how that works out.

Super Busy

Well, Ive done it again. On top of babysitting six days a week, I am also feeding my second cousin's farm animals while they are on vacation. I have to feed chickens, cows, horses, goats, a rabbit, and cats. I get to take home any eggs that the chickens lay which is nice but at the same time kind of depressing. If my chickens hadn't been killed they would probably start laying right about now. I am planning to start over with my chickens I'm just not sure when.

Also, a poo n' spew virus has been making the rounds in my family. I haven't gotten it yet (knock on wood) so that pretty much means that I am doing all the chores that everyone can't do while sick.

So to make a long story short (too late), I haven't been able to stitch very much. This is what I did get done.....

Here is my very little progress on Legends of the Dragons.

We bought a few "exotic" Hibiscus shrubs at a Hibiscus plant sale and some of them are starting to bloom. This one is called "Super Kool".

And this one is called "Some like it Hot". I think this flower would have opened more but we are under a severe drought and everything is suffering.

Tiny Happy Dance

I managed to get this little guy stitched up during the holiday weekend. This is "Small Frog" from CyberStichers designed by Barbara Ana. He was a fun little project and was just what the doctor ordered! I am planning to turn it into a Christmas ornament for my frog Christmas tree that I'm planning for this year. I still need a frog angel for the tree topper but I figure it shouldn't be too hard to make one.

No I didn't forget. Here are my orts for the TUSAL. I was going to try to get a better photo but I've been sick all week, running a fever. I haven't been able to stitch since Wednesday. I will be using this holiday weekend resting and hopefully getting well.
