Happy Dancing and other Stuff

A Finish
Porcelain Nosegay by Just Nan

I finished putting in the last bead on this last night. I just love the way it came out. It's stitched on Lavender 28ct Linen with DMC. I'm not sure just how I want it finished. At first I thought a nice frame with a mat with a circular opening but the more I look at it I think it would make a nice top for a box or jar. Will have to look see what I can find for it. Now on to my next project.

New Project

Gift Of The Eagle Feather by Craig Tennant
This is the kit I got at Michaels on Saturday. It is a Gold Collection by Dimensions. After all my wonderful DH Tracy did for me for my birthday I just had to find something to do for him. There were 3 charts I liked and let him pick the one he wanted (funny but we picked the same one without me telling him which was my favorite). This is a real change for me. I haven't done a picture that is completly covered in years but it will be nice for a change. The fabric is 18ct beige Aida and there are a lot of 1/2 stitches in blended colors for the sky. I would really like to have this done for his birthday the end of August (but which year I wonder). I will be working on it each week on Wednesday's for the ILCS BAP's SAL and hope to get a little more time each week on it. I started it very late last night (or very early this morning) and have about 900 stitches in it so far. I'll try to post a update on it tomorrow night.


Horatio Frog and goodies

I received this adorable Froggie from Val as a Valentines RAK . He had been attacking her stitching so she sent him packing home to Las Vegas. Thank you again Val.
Until next time.....Happy Stitching

Very pretty finish, a lovely porcelain jar would make a great finish for it! Great to see you start a BAP for once. I figure you will fly on this one too though!
