BoInk SAL - Week 8

Week 8 progress! I started my 2nd motif this week... I didn't want to put it down, but my fingers couldn't hold a needle any longer, I was too tired!

I imagine that next week won't be as productive, being the last weekend of tax season and I'll probably have to work :( We'll see though!

Chickadee Bookmark

Here's my latest finish. This piece gave me grief from start to finish. I just could not wrap my head around the pattern and spent almost as much time ripping stitches out as I did putting them in. But in the end I'm a happy camper :)

The Cross Stitcher Magazine - December 2008

Sign-ups closed recently for the next Tiny Treasures Exchange. I was quite happy when Sharon announced that it would be a Floss Tag exchange! I've been wanting to try making one of these for awhile, and now I'll be able to try out my birthday gift I got back in December! Yay!

BoInk SAL - Week 7

Wow - 7 weeks!! I'm loving this piece and find myself staring at it throughout the week and forcing myself to pick up something different to work on!

Hope everyone had a blessed Easter filled with loved ones :)

BoInk SAL - Week 6

Here is the update for this week. This piece is a thrill to work on and has introduced me to some wonderful ladies. Even my kids are in on the action... My daughter woke me up yesterday saying "Mom, it's your Stitch-A-Long Sunday... how much will you do today?" I love it!!

TTE Biscornu Received

I received my biscornu today from Monique S with the Tiny Treasures Exchange.

Monique stitched me a beautiful biscornu that's green on one side and blue on the other with little wooden matching buttons tying it all together. She also personalized it with the exchange and our locations on the blue side and our initials on the green side. Monique also included a post card, a skein of variegated floss, a piece of ribbon and fabric and the cutest little clothespin with the flower & ladybug!

Thanks for the wonderful exchange Monique!!
