Japanese Garden Update

I pulled out Japanese Garden.  With any luck, I hope to have it finished by the end of 2014. 

I did the purple specialty stitches on the right side and the water/bridge on the right.  I also did the blue sparklies in both crane medallions.  It's been quite a while since I've seen the bottom part of the pagoda!

Other WIP photos can be seen HERE.

"Children of the Rising Sun"

I finished "Children of the Rising Sun" !!!   Happy Dance!!    The chart is from MarNic Designs.  Stitched on 28 ct Lagana using DMC, Splendor and Gentle Arts threads.  Bead work on head band, moccasin, drum handle and some on feathers.   The feathers was a challenge for me.

just thought I'd post an update

She is getting close to be done, very little stitching left to do, just a little bit in the basket at her feet and then a little bit in the dream catcher, as well as the netting of the dream catcher.  I was hoping to post a finish by the end of July, but most likely will be the end of August.  I'm beading at the bottom of the skirt and have more done than this picture shows - I'm almost 1/2 done.  But I'm almost out of beads, so need to go and get all of the colors and then I won't need to worry.  Last time I only got the dark blue - and now I'm out of the light blue, low on the white and the orange beads.  I've still got lots of the yellow, but don't want to risk it.   

I have one finish to show off.  It's the Halloween Tree by M Design.  I'm happy with the finish and can't wait to get it framed and hanging at my office.  I had to re-do the top 3 letters 3 times on both sides before I got it right.  Counting was everything :)

Tee Time

Hello Stitchers!

I finished this about 2 months ago and gave it to a co- worker who was retiring. He really liked it and put it on display at his retirement party for others to see. I also have another finish that I hope to post soon.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!

Busy Spring

Good Morning Readers,

This week is going to be wild. First my granddaughter Cassie graduates high school. We are so proud of Cassie she will start college in the fall.
This week I am packing to move to Blue Springs, Mo into my daughter's basement apartment. I will watch the five year old grandson and keep an eye on the 12 year old grandson.

Then next weekend my son graduates college and him and his wife are moving to Nebraska.

Couple all of this with a doctor's appointment tomorrow. A graduation party and my daughter Amanda flying in for the graduation there is much much much to do.

Then the next weekend my husband will bring up my furniture up and spend Memorial Day Weekend with us.

Then I will watch my two grandsons full time.
I suspect I won't get much stitching in until after Memorial Day. This is actually fine with me as my stitching place will not be set up until Memorial Day. I will have Frank bring my desktop computer up.
What are your plans for Memorial Day? Oh and I am currently reading Birthday Murder by Leslie Meir.

just a quick update

Here is my SpiritDancer - my goal is to have her done by the end of May.
