A finish, some progress, and a photobomb...

So!  I am very excited and happy that I have another finish for this month!!! Two finishes this month?! For me that's amazing! I finished the 2nd piece in my Santa ornament series:

Then I put in about 15 hours of work on this:

And here's my cute little photobomber:

I was very productive this month!! Along with all my stitching I also managed to read 9 books as well! So I did pretty good this month! Now looking forward to the fall and Halloween next month. It's still in the 80s here so I'm still waiting for fall to hit. Hope everyone had a great stitchy month. See yah soon!

DS2N progress!

I reallllly worked like crazy on this during the past 5 days!! Still so in love with this project! 
Which is a good thing because I was looking back and realized I started this page on February 1st!!! Over SEVEN months ago!!!!! That's more than half a year to get this far. I'm not even done with the first page!! At this rate it will take me 5 years to finish!!! 
So then I looked in my WIP drawer. I have three HAED pieces, 7 Kustom Kraft pieces and a Mystic stitch!!! If it takes me 5+ years to complete one, I will finish the last one when I'm 96 years old! Ha!!! Which means I really want to focus more on my stitching now. Man! Why couldn't I just be a pretty sparkley vampire?! Then I'd have many many many years to get it all done!

A finish!! And some progress...

First up is my finish on my first ornie in this Santas series of ten ornaments. It's cute! 
And next is a blob.... But with some work will end up being Santa sitting in a gold sleigh holding a little Christmas tree, with a blue and black checkered blanket over his lap. 
Well that's about it here. We are expecting some heavy storms to hit tonight, so I'm off to watch some DVDs of "Father Dowling Mysteries." Anyone remember that show? I used to watch it with my mom when I lived at home, we enjoyed it. That Father Frank and Sister Stephanie were always gettin' in some scrapes! Fun times! Hope you all have a great weekend, and it's filled with lots of stitchy goodness!
