Despite being Errand Girl (Coldwater Creek in search of skirts -- got 2 shirts but no skirts; Target for Corporate candy -- I really should take a picture one day of the Great Candy Debacle; to my friend's office for heat relief and helping her and research for my office; dinner at the Mall with shopping for my friend's mom's impending bday-- Happy Bday Sandy!; my office for The Great Candy Drop Off -- 7 large Taget bags full; home! -- See? Errand Girl.) yesterday I accomplished some stitching. I'm looking forward to more tonight, but the jury's still out on that.
Anyway, for Vonna and Margaret I made my Halloween fairy my Stitch-a-Thon project --
See, Vonna, she's got legs and some part of her shoes!!! lol Just for you, dearie.
Why had I been ignoring her? She's so much fun to work on! Tonight my hopes are to finish her feet and the leaves around them. It's too hot to sleep so I might as well stitch..... then again it's too hot to stitch too many things also. Cross your fingers! -- Thank you, Vonna, for exhorting me to give the girl some legs. And thank you, Margaret, for the impetus to get back to work on her.
And, get this -- I even managed 2 ornie starts and finishes between Thursday and yesterday --
They are Charland's tree from last year's (?) JCS and a modified LK from JCS (also last year I think). The beads are all courtesy of powwows and the floss used for the tree is Crescent's Belle Soie, but I don't remember the color name right now. I'm kinda hopeful in that I'm all excited about Christmas ornies right now. I'm thinking of declaring next week Ornament Week. Want to join me?
Oh, I got some stash last week that I've neglected to share. A bundle from Carrie's Creation Threads
She has the most jewel-like colors. Don't you just want to dive right in to those blues?
