Small Finish and DD update

I got bit by the stitching bug last night.  I had finished my LHN ornament before 10 pm. American Idol was still on.  This is LHN All Dolled Up Peppermint Twist from her 2010 collection, stitched on 28 count Rosewood lugana, using DMC threads and a button. I love this ornament and the colors.  Since I was done by 10 and Top Chef was starting soon, I needed to find something else to stitch. I was going to do The Chocolate Shoppe but than I remember my Dragon Dreams.  I took that out and end up staying up finishing the dragon and the shovel. I just need to do the sand, wording, and back stitching.  With the races starting this weekend, I just might have a finish to show on Monday.  Lets hope so.  Here is  the picture.

I had put my blog on moderation, since Blogger changed their security words system.  I don't like it and there are a lot of people reading those words. I hoped I had turn off the security words and if I did not, please let me know, I will try to fix it as soon  as I can.

If you watched the Daytona race this Sunday, it is going be so excited.  I am rooting for my driver, Dale Jr to win this year.  Go Jr!!  Than the Oscars are on right after that.  First the speeding cars and then the red carpet comes out.

Have a great weekend!

Hugs
Vicky

Vicky, a visit to your blog is always a treat! I love seeing all the WIPs and finishes, and we have the same taste in designs. The lilac butterfly in the previous post is elegant. You do a great job of sewing also (Q-Snap cover and pillow for butterfly in previous post).

This is about my 7th try to leaving you a post. I signed out and signed back in, so we will see what happens this time! Keep up the great work!

Please let me know how you got rid of the word recognition feature on Blogger. I hate that thing!

Vicky I just ADORE the All Dolled Up Peppermint Twist and on that fabric it looks fabulous. Think I'll have to look out for that chart as I've fell in love.

DS2 is thrilled with your dragon, the seaside and a dragon is his idea of heaven LOL!
