End of August update

This month was not a good month for stitching for me. I only finished 2 small models and finished off a biscornu for an exchange I was late. I am glad I got a couple of finishes but it is so hard to stitch when one has to lay down most of the day. I am just not able to stitch much to do weekly posts.
My leg did not heal that much this month either. I did got the results on my ultrasound with good and bad results. The bad part my veins are slightly diseased. The good part is they are not badly damaged yet where a procedure needs to be done now. Maybe in the future but not now. The key to healing my leg will be compression wrappings and evaluating my legs.

I finished a SAL I joined with The Phoenix Stitchers yahoo group. The pattern was Dragon Dreams freebie My Treasure. I stitched it on 18 count rose linen. It was very tiny stitching. There is a mistake too but I fudge it so good, no one can tell it is there unless you count the stitches to find the mistake.

I finished the Mill Hill Jingle ornament. Boy, did I make big mistakes on this one. I was suppose to use metallic gold for the jingle bells but I used the DMC thread instead. Some of the red beads are crooked. It seems like the beads did not want to stay put. I started this ornament in April so it was nice to finish it off. I started on another one and hopefully I will get it done in a week or two.

The biscournu I did for Diana in the wXSw group, was the Summer Biscornu by Barbara Ana. It came out bigger than I expected, but Diana loved it. It was stitched on 14 ct peacen aida. I brought the watermelon buttons at WalMart. It gave a very summery look.

I did started a new model,the Little House Needleworks Snowflakes. I just started it and not enough to show, so next time you will get to see a picture. Can you believe it is almost time for Labor Day weekend? I happen to look out my window at 7:50 pm last night and notice it was practically dark outside. Boy, I am not ready for the night to come early.

I hope everyone has a great long weekend coming up. I will be meeting my new cousin at our picnic and hopefully I will have pics of her and the rest of the family who decides to come.

Happy Stitching!

Great stitching. I don't see the mistakes. It all looks just fine to me.

I am so sorry to hear that your leg isn't healing as well as it could. :( But keep it elevated. On the couch with pillows and then you can stitch away. :)

Great work! Glad you are getting better, even if it's slowly, just take your time to rest and heal.
