August Finished!!!



I finished August Freebie by Erica Micheals! I think it came out really cute. I did somehing different with the center of the flower, though, it called for long stitches coming out from the center, but I didn't think it would look very neat so I used the two different shades of brown to make a sort of checker pattern, and I think it looks more like a sunflower and the seeds in the center of a real sunflower than having long stiches coming out from the center.

This week I pulled out The Abbey to work on , and I am actually really enjoying it! I got alot of progress in yesterday, as DH took the modem to work with him, leaving me internetless for the day...very conducive to stitching!!

I also had a dentist appointment yesterday to get a filling, and one of my front teeth had some discoloration on it, and was sort of an odd shape, and she totally smoothed it out and made it really pretty! I'm so happy with it!!! And with the Air Force Ball next month, I will have my pretty new tooth to show off in our photos!!

Well, I have been trying to catch up on blog reading, I had over 200 feeds today...I have never had that much! Crazy! So, I have been on the computer since I got up about 2 hours ago, practically, and now I think unread feeds be damned...I'm going to go stitch! Although I REALLY am enjoying reading the blogs!!!

Oh! and one more thing! I got my "Howling At The Moon" chart in the mail yesterday...oh my startitis fingers are itching to start it right away,but I will be good!!! I think I shall try to finish something first...do my tiny little monthly freebies count? lol!

Very cute! I like the way you did the center, it does remind me of the way the seeds are in the center of a sunflower.
