Here She Is!!

Fern!  I finished her up last night.

By:  Nora Corbett

Here is a closer look at the beading.

Since I've had two finishes in the last couple of weeks, I decided to allow myself to start one of my new HAED's today.


I'm in a Christmas kind of mood.

Tomorrow I'll be walking in another parade in support of my candidate for Sheriff.  It's only suppose to be a high of 59 degrees!  What was I thinking when I agreed to walk?  That's just too cold for a parade; I can't imagine who will even come out to watch it!

Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Stitching!!

Back to Reality

My vacation is over and now it's time to return to reality and work. Blah.  I hate that first day back from vacation, my desk will be overflowing with paperwork and it will feel like I've never been gone.

I did have a great week though full of stitching! I can't think of a better way to spend a vacation than to spend it stitching!

I spent today stitching on Fern.  Here is how she looked when I last posted an update

And here's how she looks today

I'm going to keep working on her until she's done since I'm so close to finishing her.  She has beads that need to be attached but not nearly as many as my Mermaids had!

That's about it for today.  Linda, I will be dropping your prize at the post office tomorrow on my way home from work.

Have a great week everyone and Happy Stitching!

And The Winner Is...........

So this morning I drew the name for my first giveaway and the winner is Linda!

Linda couldn't decide between charts 2 and 3 so I guess I'm gonna have to surprise her.  Please send me your snail mail address so I can get your prize in the mail!

Thanks to everyone who entered.  I'm sure I will be having another giveaway in the near future. 

Congrats Linda!

It Was A Great Day!

Not only did I finish my Mermaids but my hubby and son took me out to dinner to celebrate my birthday!  It was a very nice evening, but I know you all would much rather see my Mermaids, so here they are....

By:  Nora Corbett

I am really happy with how it turned out.  I thought I would die with all the beading, but it was worth it!  I plan to have it professionally framed.  I don't know what kind of frame to get yet, but I don't think it needs a mat, what do you think?  I don't frame too many things so I'm not sure what I should do.  Mat or no mat?

I'm on vacation next week so I plan to spend some time going through my stitching room to put together  something for my first giveaway!  I have won three giveaways so I think it's time that I had one of my own.  So check back here sometime next week to see what I come up with for my giveaway!

Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Stitching!
