Progress photo Friday and a finish!

Well, i have been working pretty steadily on Howling at the Moon, and am almost finished with page 9!! which means just about only 2 more pages to go until a finish on this one! I figure, there are three months left of the year that gives me 1.5 months to finish each page. I think I can do it! Here is just the work on page 9:

and here is the whole thing...sooooo close now!! I really think I can finish it this year!!


And I have also been working on my Christmas cards as well. Here is card #6. It says Joy to the World, and has two angels with trumpets. (Or it will, when it is finished!)




And here is my finish on card #5! I like this one, I think it is really pretty! Sorry about the shadow in the lower right hand corner.




Well, that is about it for me here. Thank you to those of you who hopped over to my new blog to check out my story. I hope to be able to keep up with it. It is so weird, me and my hubby are both kind of hermits, we don't have a lot of friends, and don't go out alot, but I keep finding myself VERY busy!! I have soooo many hobbies!! sometimes I am actually overwhelmed with the things I have to do. not as in obligation "have to do" but as in they're there, so why not do them? LOL....Oh well, it makes life fun and full, right?


This weekend is my SAL with Juls from A Stitch in Time With Julie on "Coming Home For the Holidays"...so I will be busy with that, and the hubs wants to go on a date this weekend as well, so that will be nice,, to get out and away from the baby. I love the little tyke, but sometimes it is so nice to go out and not have to worry about her.


Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Wow that is such a beautiful piece and your stitching is just perfect!! I love the cards you are making they are so nice! You sound just like me! My hubby and I don't have many friends and we don't get out a lot either!! We have a baby girl also and we are still trying to find someone who can babysit that we can trust. It's kinda hard to do when you are in the military and you have no family around! But I know what you mean about just loving that time alone! Have a great time with your hubby!

Cheering you on for a finish on Howling Lana. Never feel guilty for wanting some time away from your daughter, we all need a break at times.
