I finally have pictures to share.
I haven't been working on anything really hardcore this week. Mostly just UFOs. I've been too busy. I have been reading more than anything. And playing with the dog. He's doing a lot better. He was "helping" me clean this morning, if helping can be construed as sitting in my lap, trying to put his feet in the boxes I was putting things away in. I finally put him outside. He didn't like it, but I was afraid he'll break something. He's chewing on his tennis ball now.
I did finally find the perfect ornament tree for my halloween ornaments. They had them at Hallmark. At $25, they were a bit pricy, but the wreath I was going to get was $19.99, and that really was not what I wanted, so it was a matter of spending $5 and getting this guy. Now I can display the lovely ornaments I've gotten without fear of a wagging tail knocking them down. And there is room around the base for things that don't hang so well. This should do me for a while as far as my ornament displays go--I've got a lot of finishing to do!
I pulled out a Margaret Sherry that I've had for a while. I believe this is a 2007 UK Cross Stitcher design of mice in a nutshell boat. It's been fun to stitch, but I get distracted from it. I did a little Saturday night while watching Lord of the Rings. Someday I will actually watch all the movies all the way through. I'm gonna need a big project for that. This may be the right one!
I did a little bit on this today. This is White Willow Stitching Arabian. I've had this forever and I pull it out every so often to work on. I love it and I think the detail is amazing. Jamie does a fantastic job with her designs. At some point, this is going to be a focus piece so that I can get it all done; I just get confused if I don't work on it for a while, and confusion breeds frustration, which breeds disillusionment, LOL.
My simple project for the week is this Blue Cat Scissor Fob, a freebie by Cherished Stitches. I'm going to try to finish it in the next couple days, which shouldn't be that hard. I am stitching it using DMC Variations 4240, a really rich blue, and I'll put it on my peacock blue DMC scissors. After this is done, I will get that ornament started, since September is almost half over. Can you believe it?
And, lastly, a message from Caesar Beazer: Reduce, reuse, recycle! This dog loves a water bottle. He carried this around for two days. No chewing, just carrying. Although it was wierd to see a random water bottle on the floor of our spotless house, it made him happy.
I hope everyone is having a good week so far! We have a little cooler temps here in Maryland. And got rain on Sunday. Fall is on its way!
