Wips and a finish ...

Time for an update on my rotation and an another finish! First up are the rotation pieces ...

Peppermint Twist ... stupid tree was pretty boring to stitch, but I love how it looks!


Earth laughs is coming along nicely ... even with all the color changes for each flower, I still can stitch more in an evening ... feeling sooo accomplished! lol


and last is L*K's Christmas Flip-its ... I'm a bit bummed because I dont' think I have enough fabric left to finish the last of the designs ... I might rip out the top of the border and see if one would fit on top of holly ... I really need to sit down and count it out ... yuck!


My finish for the week is Autumn Song by Blackbird Design. I was doing a SAL with Natasha. She got a little side tracked by other stitching that had to get done, but she's really close to finishing it :) I really enjoyed this ... loved the colors!


I know I won't be stitching this again and would like to offer it up as a giveaway. The giveaway will include the chart, leftover Weeks floss (probably not enough to stitch it, but a good start) and the scissor fob, but not the scissors, in the picture. Just leave me a comment with your email address and I'll draw a name next Tuesday, May 18th. You don't have to have a blog to enter, but please make sure you include your email address ... also, I'll email international too!


I've picked by project to put in rotation now that Autumn Song is done. I'm finally going to start something new! I'll post pictures as soon as I have it all together *smile*

I hope all you mom's out there had a wonderful day! Mother's Day was also Chris' 28th birthday, he was really a Mother's Day baby too :) We started the day at Starbucks (surprise surprise! lol) and then headed to the waterfront for the day ... later in we ended up seeing Iron Man 2, ending with a nice dinner at Red Robin ... it was a very full day but so much fun! I'll leave you with one of my favorite pictures from Mother's Day ... more to follow in another post ...


I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for the my sons and daughter-in-law ...

Sherry said...

Love your stitching and am curious about your rotation. I wonder if you really don't feel like working on something that assigned night, do you ever skip? I have so many things I would love to finish this year but sometimes get sidetracked :-) Please enter me in your giveaway! BBD is one of my very favs and I don't have that one (gasp)! Looks like iced coffee to me - love, LOVE iced coffee.

Karen said...

Love Peppermint Twist.
I think there is something with those LK Flipits. My BFF Beatrice did not have enough fabric to do the last of her Halloween ones and I read somewhere someone else who did not have enough fabric.
Nice BBD Finish.

I fear I have made a similar mistake on my "Home of a Needleworker Too!" and will probably be frogging all weekend...
