Well, I promised a post today, so here it is! I had a lady come into the shop today selling fresh tamales. For $8 a dozen I just couldn't resist! Ordered a dozen spicy chicken tamales, and she came in with three dozen, telling me I just had to pay for one. Score! Three dozen tamales for the price of one. :) Of course, I dug in right away. They were so hot I almost burned my hands bringing them into the kitchen. And boy, were they good! If you happen to be in the area, come on by for some fresh tamales!
On the stitchy side of things, things are going pretty good. I completed For This Child by My Big Toe on Friday, I've started Jungle Baby by Imaginating, I've put in several stitches on Present for My Friend by Blackbird Designs, and I've completed 1/3 of a page on Faery Tales by Heaven and Earth Designs! That's 2400 stitches on that sucker. 1/3 page down, 39 2/3 to go! And believe it or not, there are actually 12 different colors in this section alone! I'm itching to work on it more, but really need to get some more work in on Jungle Baby, seeing how it's commissioned. Sigh. Need to be working on Present for My Friend too since it's an exchange piece and needs to be finished and mailed by August 12th. And let's not forget my ornament for the ornament exchange that needs to be finished and mailed by August 20th. Guess I have a few things on my plate, eh?
Anyways, here are the pictures:
