I Did It ..I Did It.

Here is my first little over one stitch and I framed it too!

This is done on 25ct evenweave and I used 'pewter' Weeks hand dyed thread.

I put it with the teacup so you can compare the size.

Last Friday I went to a lily farm and purchased a new lily for my garden.. this is what it looks like ...I love the colour! This lily is called 'Hope and Glory'
The weather has been a bit better today and I haven't had to water it since I put it in the ground after all the rain we had!

Have a good day and stitch with happy fingers!

I'm Honored.....

Thank you!!

The Brillante Weblog award was given to me by Dani.

The Kreativ Blogger award was given to me by Bette.

What an honor to receive 2 awards in a matter of a couple of days.

We had a big power failure this weekend so I'm a bit late in posting this blog. I had company yesterday so here I am to say thank you.

It is tooooo hard to send this on to only 5 bloggers so I want all of my readers to consider this award theirs. I have been checking out the blogs and a lot of you have been receiving this as well and congratulations to all of you .

Take care and stitch with happy fingers.!

Quite the storm!

The other night I could hear some thunder in the distance so I looked out side to see this spectacular view.

About a 1/2 hour later we had a huge storm but we didn't get any damage. I know that A lot of folks have been hit hard with the weather and my prayers go out to all of you who have suffered through the many storms north and south!

On the stitching front I have been plugging away at these *@$^# ing pumpkins ..But it is coming together. It's a little boring for me so they don't get a lot of attention.

I have 2 of the Lizzy Kate Christmas spirit flip it's done and just love doing these. Aren't they just the cutest?

Tomorrow I will be spending the day at a Lilly Farm in Orno Ontario. Like I need more flowers..maybe I won't buy any...lol...
It should be interesting. I hope the weather holds for us.

Take care and stitch with happy fingers.
I hope to have some nice pictures of the Lillie's for you.

She's an Angel!

I spent all of my stitching time on the Angel for the last 2 days and the result is...ta daaaa. She still needs lots of work but...
I know... I know... if you keep working on it, it WILL get done. I'm quite impressed with the way she looks.

Today I promised myself I would finish the top left corner of the Celtic knot and I did. I put a quarter on it so you can see how teensy weensy it is. [25ct] I AM in love with over one. But can't do it for long. My eyes are old I guess because they do fail me once in awhile. Not magnifying yet!!! Soon I think!

Tonight I will work on Bling while I watch the Ball Game on TV. It is a bit easier to work on then the others. I don't really watch the Ball as much as I listen, then, look at the replays...Works for me!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you for your lovely comments.
Stitch with happy fingers.

Some Bling!

Not the greatest photo but it gives you an Idea as to where it stands.
I was at the local theater to see "Steel Magnolias "today and I must say it was well done.
I'm glad I'm home and in the AC we are hitting very high temps . 31*c or about 90f. See my weather pixie in the side bar.

Tooooo Hot!

I will be stitching on PL tonight and staying cooool! ahhhhh.

Have a great evening and see you in a few days.

Stitch with happy fingers!

This Busy little Bee landed in my flower pot Thursday after stitching at Ann's of Knowledge and Needles. Judie [no blog] gave this to me and thought it would love to live in my garden...Isn't it cute??? Thanks so much Judie it looks great here!

While I was Ann's I purchased the charts ,weeks threads and the Lugana eavenweave [mushroom] to do the Lizzie Kate'
Christmas Spirit Flip it's.
I couldn't resist and stitched up the first word. I have 4 words so far the rest are to come at a later date. The colours are wonderful and so far I love it!

I want to thank you for all of your lovely comments and stitching support. You do encourage me to keep stitching. When I see the beautiful pieces you are doing you are an inspiration.

Have a wonderful weekend and stitch with happy fingers.

Detail .....

I spent all of my stitching time yesterday doing Backstitching. I try to do some as I go because I love the detail.

I had already done the face and the reindeer, so... I added the wing and the cape. Lots left to do but it is looking like I have accomplished something.

The Celtic Knot by M designs is coming along. I'm practicing for my HAED. [see previous post]

I have posted a photo of the Paradigm Lost on the SAL blog have a look here.
