Finally!

I have a finish!  Yippee!! : )  This one seems like a HUGE accomplishment, because I started it last February.  Acorn wanted to hold it...

Eye on the Sparrow
Silver Creek Samplers

I finished the stitching on my exchange piece, too, but I can't show that yet.

In the mornings after I read my Bible I've been stitching on the "Courage" sheep virtues chart.  I caught Acorn trying to put in a stitch when he thought I wasn't watching...

Oops!  She caught me!!  Hi Mom!!
So... my WIP in progress right now is Yesterday, Today, Forever.  I got a good bit done on it yesterday evening.  I'm thrilled to get some of these pieces finished that have been on my list for awhile.  I love starting new projects, but after awhile it really starts to weigh on my conscience if I don't finish them. : )  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sparrows, Exchanges and Acorn

Hello friends!



I've made good progress on my Eye on a Sparrow piece since last we spoke!  Yay!  Isn't it pretty?  My work area is messy right now, though, and I'm having a hard time sitting down to finish it.  I'm going to have to do some reorganizing this week, for sure!

I also started my exchange piece which is supposed to be a secret, but if you won't tell, I'll show it to you...  READY?????


Bwahahahahaha!!! : )

That's it for me today!  Oh, wait!  Did I show you the artist bear that my daughter made me for Mother's Day??  He is SO sweet.  He sits next to my computer and sometimes he even helps me stitch.  He is pretty little, only about 2 1/2" tall when seated, and he's weighted with steel shot so he feels "real" in your hand.  His joints are movable, too, so I can pose him for the camera.  I love him!!  I told her I wanted another one for Christmas!

 Meet Acorn...


"I can see why you need glasses!!"

That's all, folks!  See you next time!

May Goals

Hi everyone!

It seems I need to do an update for April!  Here are my pictures for the month...


I finished LHN Sheep Virtues "Peace".  This one brings to mind Psalm 23...  "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul."  I love the fishies in the water and the garland around his neck!

I worked on Silver Creek Sampler's Eye on the Sparrow for a little while.  Although I must admit with this one I wish I had started on the words "Do Not" instead of on the word "Worry"!!  I'm stitching this one over 1 on 28 count and it's beautiful, but I can only work on it for bits at a time or my shoulder and back and neck bother me.  I've made good progress, though!

Here's the start...


Here's where I am now...

I finished and sent a charity quilt block...


I finished this sweet little PS block...


And started Promise Me...


All right, let's see how I did on my goals for April...

hmmm.

 April 4-10: Finish and send charity block - DONE
April 11-14:  Stitch LHN Sheep Virtues "Peace" - DONE
April 15-30:  Finish 1200 stitches on stocking - pg 2, next column - NOTHING DONE
When I need a break from the stocking tiny work...
 Finish PS Bunnies - DONE
Stitch one night on Eye on Sparrow - DONE (plus some!)
Start L*K Promise Me - DONE
Ongoing:  Work on Yesterday, Today, Forever at Mom's - NOTHING DONE

And my goals for May?  Finish Eye on Sparrow and stitch LHN Sheep Virtues Courage.  For some reason I'm in a "finish my WIP's" mood.  So I'll run with it while I can!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
'Til next time...
