I promised some photos yesterday, didn't I? I might be a day late, hopefully not a dollar short.
First, an older finish. I think from early this year? Not exactly sure. I found this today. Since the engagement, my mother has finally decided I'm probably never moving back home and is boxing up and giving me various things of mine she finds around the house (this has caused a wee bit of tension, as she keeps asking me if I will wear things I wore when I was 14. And was a size 7. And had big bangs. I'm 33. I'm not a seven. I only accidentally end up with big bangs when I go to sleep with slightly damp hair and sleep on my face. No, I don't need that rocking 90210-inspired jacket. Thanks, Mom!) This was a good find. I think this was stuck in a drawer, LOL. It's a limited edition Lizzie Kate. I need to put the buttons on, but the stitching's done! Cute, no?
I've been working on this. I don't know why I've been flitting back and forth on projects. Perhaps I need to stop having 100 projects going at one time. That would stop the flitting. I love this little funky frog. He's so cute, although, since he lacks eyes right now, he looks a bit like an alien. I figure if I get one little chart done a week, this will be done by Christmas.
And my little animal ornaments from the December 2007 issue of Cross Stitch Gold. I haven't made good progress yet because all the colors I forgot to get are the ones in the area I am working on. Booger. I have them at the house, I just keep forgetting to stick them in the project bag. I also added a picture of the finished ornaments, just to show what they may look like if I get them all finished.
HTB is out pit-crewing tonight in Richmond. Hopefully the weather holds out and they can run the race. The Mid-Atlantic has been getting hammered this week due to another coastal system hitting up the remains of Ida. It's very scary stuff--a barge loaded with chemicals ran aground in Virginia Beach, and they are talking major beach erosion. I am thinking of the people who are affected this, and a bit of me worries about the wild ponies and hopes they'll be OK. I imagine they are, though, they'll just be a bit damp and sandy when this is done. HTB'll be home tomorrow night. So, that means tonight is all about the ice cream and cheesy TV! Woo hoo.
Have a fantastic weekend. If you are in the storm affected area, stay safe.
