She's Finished

Well folks here she is BLING Finished.

You know..being as I took a break from the computer I was able to do lots of stitching.
I was finding I was not only blogging but gameing and face booking and NOT stitching sooooo thus the break.
I will now get caught up on the comments on your blogs and browse around. I need to limit myself a bit.
I've also been walking every day . I'm up to 40 min. I was never a walker because my job [barber] had me on my feet for 8-10 hours a day. Now that I'm retired I've been on my butt that long. I've put on a bit of weight and am trying to lose some of that as well. I'm down 4lbs...not much but at least it's down!

Take care and stitch with happy fingers.

Show and Tell.

It seems to me I have done a lot of stitching this week.

Bling is on the home- stretch. She got some back stitching this week. Black on black is a bit tough but it's getting there.

8 flips done on Christmas spirit 4 to go. I'm waiting for them to come in the end of the month. This will definitely be done for Christmas.

Paradigm Lost has 6 pages done and 6 to go so the halfway mark has been reached.

Finally I must say this Jeanette Douglas Album of stitches is soooo much fun. It is slow going because most of it is over one on 32 count black lugana. But the results are so pretty. This page is the Mosaic stitch. There is a lot of bling and beads will go on it as well. Page one is a light green and blue blend. DMC veragated thread 4060.

Have a great week and stitch with happy fingers.

Ann,... Adriana[my Mom].... Kathy,.... Angie,.... Barb.[our guider through the making]

This a picture of the group of us that got together at Ann's to finish up our flatfolds. Obviously I'm not in the picture because I took it but if you go to Ann's Blog she has posted some too.
She actually named all of the pieces. I just know who did what, not what the charts are called..Again She has that info.

Kathy did the Boo and the PS Angie did the witch.
These are the 3 pieces I did...oh I love them. R Mom's ...Barbs....Ann's
A sideways view. This a very nice way to finish because it stores so well. Mostly these are seasonal things so need to be put away.

I want to thank Ann for her hospitality and Barb for her assistance..the other ladies for there company.

Kathy and Angie are on their way to AZ soon so they will be missed. Our group is just not the same without them !!!!!!!

Now I need to get back to my stitching and I will drop by the blogs to say hello to everyone first.
Take care and stitch with happy fingers!
