I Am So Lucky!

I have the greatest stitching friend ever!!  Look what I found in my mailbox yesterday....

Isn't that the most adorable chart?  Chelle
  sent me this chart as a birthday gift, it even included the floss and fabric!  What a wonderful gift and what a wonderful friend I have!  Thank you so much Chelle, you really made my day!!

I'm home from work today, thought I would add an extra day to my long weekend.  I started the beading on Mermaids of the Deep Blue and can I just say OMG!  The beading is going to take me forever, there are just so many beads to attach. I started beading around 9:00 o'clock this morning and this is all I have managed to get done (it's almost 1:00 o'clock!!)  I have taken a "few" breaks, but still, what a freaking slow process this is!


My neck and back are killing me and I haven't even made a dent in the number of beads I need to attach.

I don't know how much I'll get done this weekend, my hubby is taking to me to a Travis Tritt concert tomorrow night and afterwards some gambling at the casino!  Sunday I will be spending most of the day and evening at the county fair working a booth for my candidate for sheriff.  Hopefully I can make some kind of progress on this today.

Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Stitching!!

Tons of beads, but the effect is stunning!

A lovely birthday gift. Good luck with the beading.

Chelle said...

Happy birthday, Carrie. You have become such a wonderful friend.

Mermaids is just stunning. Try the pillow on your lap with the beads on felt so they don't go anywhere. It's faster and doesn't hurt you. LOL

I love the effect beading gives but I am not a big fan of actually doing it - so you have my sympathy - the cats look like a cute stitch

Love the chart Chelle sent you. What a cute piece. The beading you got done is gorgeous. What a stunning piece when it is done. I now know that is another reason why I don't do charts with beads.

The beads look lovely. I will be doing beads for the first time on one of my WIPs soon.

Happy Birthday....and what a great chart you received!
Keep going with the beading, it's worth it in the end!
