Finished and finishes! Lots of pictures!

This is a real picture heavy post, sorry about that! Here's my latest finish, Truly Thine from Blackbirds Designs. I think it might be Loose Feather number 6 maybe. I still want to stitch the heart from this design. I used called for threads and fabric. Wouldn't this look nice in a white frame?
Then I did finish the BOAF Valentine Holiday into a hanging pinkeep. It's quite small since it's done over one on 28 ct fabric. I think I did replace most threads in this designs so it would show up better on the fabric.

Here's where I'm at with the Loose Feather Wednesday SAL with Ranae. It's lucky that it's stitching up quick since I haven't stitched on it to much lately. But I'm trying to keep up with it.

This is Rites of Spring, also a Loose Feather that I'm stitching with Suzanne. I would have gotten further ahead if I would have gotten this counting thing down. That circle was a real pain and I had to frog I don't know how many times. I rather not recall actually, some things are better suppressed.

In January I finished this little ornament and I have tried to get a good picture of it since. The darn thing is cursed I tell you. I think I have a crisp picture and it's always blurry when I upload it. So this is how good it will get! It's from CCN and I think it was published in the 2007 ornament issue. Seriously, it doesn't really scream Christmas to me but I just love the colors, maybe I will just finish it for one of my girls and it can be out all year round.

Also, I couldn't resist sharing this picture. That is one relaxed kitty! She was just snoring away all afternoon (and believe me this one snores). So cute!
Things at home are starting to calm down a bit. It helps that I wrote my finals again this last week and don't have to stress about that and I can concentrate on the family. I'm off for almost 3 week so that is a blessing. Thank you for all your words of encouragement it means the world to me! And as always, thank you for visiting!

Hoping to get back into the swing soon!

It's been a pretty darn awful end of January and February here. I have been dealing with some pretty heart breaking family issues. So at the moment it's really hard for me even to sit down and stitch. But, we will overcome this too! It's not like we have a choice in the matter.

I have tried to start to finish some things again, this is my latest project. I'm going to try to finish it as a hanging pinkeep. I have been looking everywhere for pretty pins in different colors and I found a package yesterday - in my own stash. Guess that I forgot about that one. I'll try to take a picture when it's all finished this weekend. I believe this is Valentine Holiday from Birds of a Feather, I have to go through the stash trying to find the chart.

As always, thank you for visiting. Don't give up on me, it feels like I'm dealing better with this new situation now then I did 2 weeks ago so it can just get better!

Trying to survive!

A bad cold that is! I haven't stitched since last Friday when my sinuses started aching and I just had to lay down. I though that I would share this framed piece that I framed earlier last week. It's an older kit from Ewe and Eye and Friends and I used all the materials that came with the kit. It's called Autumn Urn I think. Thank you for all the sweet comments and for stopping by. Off to have another cup of hot tea!
