Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Happy Dancing time

Yup, Dena has finally been promoted to the finished pile ... it might be a long time before it turns into an actual cushion, but I'm happy to announce all the stitching is finished. One more off the UFO list for the year - yippee!!

Not sure what is going to take its place yet - I've given up on my previous rotation of having a week to stitch each piece ... I think instead I'd prefer to do what a lot of other stitchers do, and have a daily rotation over the week. I already have two days set aside, so it'll be easy to plan the other days as well ... might have to look at it tomorrow, when I work out what I'm going to spend my time stitching.

Thanks for giving my name to Design-A-Blog, I was wondering who had given me a point :) Can't wait to see your new look!

Gosh there's a lot of work in that, Anne - far too much to turn into a cushion that someone might sit on - :-O !
Why not have it framed and put on a wall where it can be admired for years to come?

Thanks for the link to PawPrints for the SJ Beads, Anne!!! That helps me tremendously.

Dena is gorgeous! Blue is my fav color.

Nice Nice Nice. Thanks for sharing your happy dance with us. My canvas piece is limping along. I just don't like working on it. I feel more like stitching "fall" stuff right now & found a cute Bent Creek Black Cat pattern -- a quick, simple, cutie pie. Maybe I'll get to it this week. I can 'ignore housework' too -- but not for long.

Hi Anne,
Thanks for all the sweet words on AoL today - your color sounds wonderful, but you might want to adhere to the 28 ct recommendation - her skirt is fully beaded and might get cramped up on 32 ct.... unless you can find matching petite beads??

Also, thanks for the sweet words re: my DH. Sadly, he had terrible lung issues due to heavy smoking and won't go to the doc. I have to hold on to him for whatever short time I still have him - that is why I am so sad :-( I appreciate your support!
