Where has time gone...

I can't believe it has been 2 months since
my last post.    Work has been consuming
my life but I think the worst may be
over so I can make more time to stitch. 
I do have two small finishes to share.

and stitched this for Laura.

HE "Bird N Blossoms" Pin Cushion
Stitched on 32ct. w/ DMC
Such a cute design and think I need
to stitch again for me!

Another co-worker retired ...the fourth in a year....
so I wanted to make a little momento
to celebrate the occasion
LK "When We Do"
Stitched on 32 ct. w/Victorian Motto
This sweet design was suited her perfectly.  
Another one I need to stitch from myself!

I have been able to sneak a few stitches here
and there on some small designs.  Since
I have a free day on Sunday, finishing
will be on the to do list!
As far as stitching, June was sweet enough
to share this darling design after she
finished it.  Isn't it cute? I hope to put the
beginning stitches in to it tonight.
Hope you have a nice quiet stitchy weekend!

  20. I'm not sure if you received my comment yesterday or not so am sending again - I tried to send you an e-mail but that didn't work through Chrome. I love your blog and work - I have some cross stitch magazines as a giveaway which have some of my own designs in them and wondered as you have so many cross stitch fans and I only have a few if you might like to collaborate on such - thanks so much and keep up the beautiful work - Patricia

  21. Those are some sweet finishes, and don't blame you for wanting them for yourself! Glad you're getting to have some me time. Ënjoy and share! We spoke too soon about the lack of heat - whew.

  22. Such pretty finishes! I've never seen that LK design before and it's lovely.

  23. Great stitching and finishing! Look forward to seeing more, as I sift through out two weeks' worth of blog posts! Hugs!
