Stitch Update, Snow and a Goodbye


On Autumn Encounter by Kustom Krafts, I finished page one finally. I did start on page 2 but I will show a picture on my next post.

I finish the tail and fin on Azure by Nora Corbett.  She is very fun to stitch and easy too.  There is no blending threads.  I will be starting the skin portion in a day or two.  I will be stitching the skin 2 threads over 1.  

I am still stitching Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons.  I had to move the q-snaps over and took a picture.  Hopefully I can go back to it soon, I think after I do the skin on Azure and I stitch February Calender Girl.  I should have the pattern any day now.

I had went to my support meeting this past Monday.  I am 5 miles away but with traffic it can take 15 minutes to get there.  I took my camera and got some snowy scenes.  More snow is coming on Thursday with another 4 to 8 inches of the white stuff and a mixture of sleet and rain. Oy! What a mess!







As you must have heard by now, Shirley Temple Black passed away on February 10, 2014.  I loved her movies as a kid.  I would watch them at my aunt's house because she had a vcr and would rent the movies on the weekends.  My favorite movie is Heidi and closely followed behind A Little Princess.  Of course, you can't forget about the Shirley Temples cocktail drinks.  When my siblings and I went out to dinner with our parents, they will let us order a Shirley Temple.  I always felt like a grown-up because it was made at the bar and arrived in a special glass.  Rest in peace Shirley!


Until next time, Vicky

Like I told Meari --- you had better get started building the ark because all of that snow will be melting too! Thank heaven for Arizona! Judi in Phoenix

Enjoyed looking at your progress pics. You are a fast stitcher. Like the way you stitch 3 projects at once.

Love your pics of the snow - reminds me of when we lived in IN. Sure don't miss it though.
Your stitching is beautiful.
Sad about Shirley Temple. My dd had most of her movies on VCR. And she sure made one heck of an Ambassador!

Great progress on your stitching! We've only had snow, snow and more snow. No rain or freezing rain here. Stay safe and warm!

Your WIP's are looking great!!! You sure have gotten more than your fair share of snow this year. Hoping you get warmer weather soon. My favorite Shirley Temple movie was The Little Princess.
