6 hours to spare!

She is finished....
This is my Mirabilia White Christmas.
I'm so proud that I stuck to my guns and got her finished today with 6 hours in 2009 left over...LOL..

The beads and treasures are amazing...Thanks again to Christin for gifting them to me in the spring.
I added Swarovski Crystals instead of the millhill beads in the windows...just a bit more bling for me!!

I know that is cutting it close. I just wanted to get her done before I go ahead with the next BIG Project .. in my case it's the Desert Mandela by Chatelaine, I know that Kathy will be working on hers as well and hopefully Christin.

Have a safe and warm Holiday everyone and stitch with happy fingers..
See you in the New Year!!

Almost done!!!!!

Here she is White Christmas, only needing the beads, treasures and Wisper.
All of the cross stitching in DMC is done.
I wonder if I'll have it ready by the end of the year..One week to go ...hmmmmm??

The area in the shawl is where the White Wisper goes.
That will be my next step then all the beads.
I have been enjoying this SAL so much.
Have a look at the Mira blog to see more of these wonderful stitches!

Today is Christmas Eve, and I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!

Thank you for sharing you stitching lives with me and also all of the tidbits about your friends and loved ones.
I treasure the friendships I have made and am proud to know all of you.
You have all inspired me .

Stitch with Happy Fingers.
Your stitching and blogging friend,

I've been stitching..

As you can see I've been working on the HAED ...this has page 2 nearly done.
I was hoping to finish this page before the New Year but it took a back seat to some holiday stitching. I've also been stitching on my Mirabilia...It's so close I can taste it..I'll post a photo of it soon.

This ornament has a story.
At the fall retreat Clare (no Blog) had stitched a small ornie...just like this one. I fell in love with it and the next thing you know she gave me a piece of fabric and some thread ..also the pattern and I was on my way to making this sweet little thing.
It is on 40ct... YES 40....linen and the thread is DMC variegated.1 over 2. There are 160 beads, yup I counted them.
I gave it to a very good friend of mine for Christmas.
Thank you Clare for enabling me. I love it and am no longer afraid of any ct. If I can do 25ct 1over1 or 40 ct 1over2. I can pretty much stitch anything. I enjoyed the challenge.

Have a good day
Stitch with happy fingers.

Hello Everyone,
After 2 months of not blogging I am.
My Husband upgraded my computer and it is now" letting" me stay on line long enough to post a blog and to go on facebook for more then 2 min. at a time.
I'm not sure if I can comment yet but I have been able to look at posts through google reader.
I've missed you all and I hope I can get back in the swing of things.
I'm stitching lots and I will start to show my work again as I go along.

This is a pillow that my mom did for me a couple of years ago. I thought the Christmas theme would be fun to get in the groove.

The next piece you will recognize I'm sure.
After waiting a bit I took it in this week and lo and behold I picked it up from the framer TODAY!!!!!!!
I'm thrilled with how it turned out.

My whole inside of the house is all freshly painted so I'll find a nice spot to hang it.

Please know I didn't give up on blogging...I just gave up waiting for this @#$$^& ing computer.
Blogger just didn't like me much.

I'll be back,
Stitch with happy fingers.
