How could I help but be?--- it's Olympics season after all ! There's cheering on to be done and frantic praying for success and lack of injuries to accomplish. I know all this TV time is supposed to give me more stitching accomplishments, but frankly sometimes it is just too stressful to stitch.
I did manage to finish my July ornaments challenge with the Friendly yahoo group -- I signed up to stitch and completely finish2 ornies in the month. I got 3 done although 2 are very small and thus far lack hangers. Hey-- if my ribbon stash would quit hiding from me they would be done-done! That happens to you, right? It's not just me who has finishing bits that hide behind chairs, in boxes, and under stuff just to keep me from finalizing a piece? Heck, I wouldn't put it passed some of the stuff to have nipped off into the kitchen cabinet to hide behind that can of cream of celery soup I got for a long forgotten casserole.
Here's the month's accomplishments--
That is Blackbird's Peace ornament from the 2009 JCS, and no, of course the coloras aren't what was called for. They are close at least.
And here are my ribbon-less over-ones. the chalet and the bunnies -- no, I don't think the bunnies are mutants, I think that mama bunny just would not let a full-sized pine tree in the hole so they picked a little table-top one.
I have made it this far on Plum Street's Love and Joy from the 2010 JCS--
And I have almost gotten the border in for that Blackbird freebie from a couple years ago --
And to prove I can do something besides ornaments --
My beading progress on Mouse's Spring sampler.
See, I think I'm so busy cheering that I can't focus on stitching...... combined with my general stitching slowness, of course.
Happy Olympics to all and to all good stitching!
