A bit to show!

Boy I don't to seem to be getting much done these last few days.

With working the weekend and going to my DB and SIL for dinner that didn't leave any time to Blog or stitch.

I have been trying to get caught up on the blogs today.
I will do some more tomorrow.

The progress that I do have is of the Nordic angel.She has a lovely golden halo and her wings are sparkling.

Tonight is choir night. I don't get home from that until 11 pm.
Needless to say it's off to bed after that.

I hope you all have a nice evening
and stitch with happy fingers.

You've made great progress! It's looking really beautiful.

Nancy said...

That is so beautiful. I am doing my very first cross stitch and having fun, but it is nothing like this one.

Heidi said...

I know what you mean about not seeming to get much done. We are busy painting the living room and I have no time to stitch while I have to finish up a tutorial. That is not good! This angel is really beautiful but I am glad it is your stitching it and not me. :) I have two L&L angels sitting undone.

Hugs ~

Hello Beatrice,

Your angel is beautiful with that golden touch!
Thanks for visiting my blog. My grandparents had chickens too! It was always a dream to live in a house where you could keep chickens. A friend made the 'henhouse' as a birthday present for all of us and my uncle is the chicken provider. And so the girls each have their own chicken. What a luxury!
Have a nice day! Greetings, Carolien

Hi Beatrice,

How are you? Long time since I've been through on a visit. And I can see that you've been busy, both with some stitching, and with a lotta life.

First up....I am so jealous!! I want to go and see Dirty Dancing too!! I LOVE the movie and own the DVD and both CD's of the music. I wonder if it'll still be around in May when I'm on vacation, and the weather should be more conducive to traveling.

It's a good thing that the trip didn't get canceled because of the weather. It's certainly one of those occasions when you really do want to leave the driving to someone else, preferably a professional. Don't you just love the Mandarin? We go there around Christmas time for our work/team lunch.

Nordic Angel is very pretty, and I can't wait to see her with her wings. She has a sweet face too.

I have to remember to check out Ann's site and get the info regarding her open house. Although, realistically I'm afraid that it's too far for me to hope to go. Perhaps someday. Meanwhile, I'll read her blog to keep up on her news and see how the day turns out. Hope the weather co-operates for the day.

I really love your Victorian Lace snowflake, but can't remember if I've mentioned that before or not. I'll bet it's gorgeous in real life with all those beads shimmering on it. You said that you liked beading and I find that encouraging since I've not done much myself and feel a bit intimidated by it.

So we're getting more snow tomorrow night, and supposedly there's another big storm being tracked down in the States or something, and it could clobber us on Monday. Don't know about you, but we're just about fed up to the back teeth with winter.

At least Monday will be a holiday for us, since it's the debut of the new Family Day holiday. Yipee! It certainly makes four more years of Dalton a bit easier to bear.....ha ha ha! (read this paragraph with a note of sarcasm)

Take care on the roads and happy stitching!!
