Ok, so I figured out where my pictures were! They were on my phone... Therefore, they are not the greatest. And the Stitching with Friends wasn't complete at time of the picture. Guess I'll just post them now, and one I get that one back from the shop I'll post an updated picture, as well as a new picture of Housework in it's frame...

I figured by now I'd be back into my crochet and knitting, since it's getting cooler out, but there's way too much cross stitch that needs to be done for Christmas, so I guess those WIPs are gonna have to stay the way they are for a while longer yet. Maybe one day I'll find a way to do it all!

Cross Stitch

As you know, I've picked cross stitching back up again earlier this year. And I must say that I've grown rather addicted! Been spending more time stitching then anything else, and have finished three projects so far. Of course, I still have many, many more to go... I wonder if I can remember how to upload pics on this thing... the first one I finished was "Hawaiian Islands Map" by Chris Faye. I then did "Housework" by My Big Toe for my friend Juanita, and "Stitching With Friends" by Glory Bee for my friend Isabel. All are framed and gorgeous. I don't have pictures of Juanita's and Isabel's framed though. Will have to get those soon. Isabel's is currently on display at our local store. Woohoo! Here are the pics... Or maybe not. Can't find the darn things on my computer! I guess you'll have to wait until I figure out where the heck they are.

I have many WIPs going right now, including "Caring Wings" and "Circle of Friends" by Mirabilia, and "Joy" Christmas ornament by The Sweetheart Tree. The ornament is for an ornament swap at the shop. Don't know what I was thinking when I picked that one up, but it's gonna look awesome when done!

Now I'm gonna work on finding those pictures and getting that ornament done!

The Break Is Over! (I think...)

hello! how is everyone doing? is anyone still out there?!?!? kyle decided to start a blog (We Keep the Change) for us for our experiment in finding change, and he's inspired me to sign back in to blogger. i didn't realize it's been almost two years!!! things have been kind of insane over the last couple of years, but i know that's no excuse. somehow i'll find a way to catch you all up on what's been going on! lots of projects started and completed. i even decided to pick up a cross stitch again. i know, it's been a while (like 20 years) but i found something that i just had to make for kyle, so i'm working on it. i'll post pics when it's done and i've given it to him (look for pics in september). mom and dad finally made it out here to texas. moved in december of '08. went to a cross stitch store with mom yesterday and found my next project to kyle's dismay. lol. why i though cross stitch would be cheaper then crochet, i don't know. anyways, the hooks, needles, and yarn have been temporarily put aside. but, that's just the recent news. i'll catch ya up with pics soon!
