They're here!

Thank You for the lovely comments on the Celtic Cross. It is hanging in the living room right beside the TV so we can always see it.

The Monarch Butterfly has landed and has given me a chance to take this wonderful photo!

I have been doing pumpkins. I'm half way there. It's more fun now that I'm on the finishing side.

And Moonlight guardian ..aka ...Bling has almost got a moon to see by. Boy working with rayon is an Experience I must say. Not sure I want to do so much of it again...but I think the colours are pretty. I ran out of the blue Krenic so it's on order. I can work around it so will plug along.
I'm still just working on it on Saturdays. I may have to put in an extra day soon!

It's a holiday here in Canada for most." Civic Holiday " Now that I'm not working I have an opportunity to say I don't have to do housework and laundry!
Happy Civic Holiday to all my Canadian friends.....And for those of you that have to work ----Have a great day and stitch with happy fingers

Beautiful shot of the butterfly, and pumpkins is coming along nicely. This is such a fun looking piece. Bling looks great as well. I've not done much with rayon. I like the look, but the little bit I did work with it was frustrating (even with dampening it to try and get it to behave better).
