I AM STILL ALIVE!!!



I am still here! My computer caught a virus, which means I have more time stitching, and boy, have I been stitching!!! I have finished Mare's and Elaine's SFE. Mare's SFE was a black cat from JBW Designs-French Country. It is the same cat I did earlier for the July block swap. I loved how it came out as a pinkeep. I just did not have enough white pins so I used a few green pins, Mare's favorite color. Elaine's SFE was a Halloween pattern from Prairie Scholer(spelling is wrong) in the Just Cross Stitch magazine. It was stitched on Olive from Sassy's Fabbys and finished as a small pillow. I used glow in the dark thread for the eyes, beak and body to glow.

I also received two SFEs, one from Sarah and the other from Elaine. They did a wonderful job! I love them and right now they are on my dresser.

I finished the Fiber Contest from the ILCS
Retreat. I did the little man on yellow. I used a lot of metallic threads, which was in the box I received. He came out cute. I finished the Heart sampler from the Retreat too. I was given the color green. I think it will be given to a friend of mine, being made into a pillow. I will take a picture of the pillow when I finish it off.

I have 2 more finishes to show off. Both of them are Lizzie Kates. One is the Housework pattern and the other is Dont get Your tinsel in a Tangle. I also got an Christmas ornament but I forgot to take a picture so I will have to post it later. I am now stitching a Mill Hill ornament for my tree and I will be stitching a teacup for Vickie's SFE.


I almost forgot, I also finished
a Halloween ornie and a dragon ornie for a couple members from the Phoenix Stitchers group.


A couple weeks ago, I went to my cousins's 25th Anniversary
party. My cousin kept her wedding dress and it was displayed at the party. I was looking at the wedding album and saw a pic of my parents. Boy did they look so young. I told my dad and when he went to look for it, he missed it. I had to show him where it was and than he admitted he was looking a picture of him with gray hair, lol. You can guessed he had gray hair for a long time. Here is a picture of the wedding dress and a picture of Dad and me.
