Happy Day!

Dear friends,
I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I was to see a sudden influx of comments and views and even followers!! I almost fell out of my chair when I looked last night at my growing email inbox! Thank you for that. :-) Slowly I am getting over to all of your blogs to see what is going on outside of my little bubble.
**UPDATE**
Sending tons of kudos and love to Jo at Serendipitous Stitching, for mentioning my fledgling blog on her recent post. If you didn't stop by and see her blog first, and somehow got lost on the world wide web and found my blog elsewhere, please go visit her! It's well worth the stop!
On to the recent updates and, my favorite part, the photos!!
We shall start with the "painting." I honestly TRIED to get a little more done on the paint-by-number to no avail. I retrieved it from its hiding place, away from my DB's prying eyes, only to have him show up home early from work. Attempt no.1 foiled. I did manage to grab a photo of the most recent progress to share with you all. The colors aren't showing up particularly well here. The front of the boat is a dark brown, not black, and there's a lot of detail lost in the bottom left corner. Might have something to do with the fact that I don't have my own camera so you are all blessed with the horrid phone camera photos I'm stuck with. :-)

On the cross stitching front, I also have the completed photo (below) of the "Wine A Bit" design by Sue Hillis. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this design. The fabric provided is, because I'm forcing it to be, enough to make 2 designs although I may run a hair short on thread. More charms will need to be purchased prior to finishing any more of these anyway...

With the wine design finished, I finally picked up my Beauty and the Beast design. This one has been in the works for longer than I'd care to admit, but it's faithfully stayed in the ever growing rotation!

I can't wait to finish this one and get it framed. You'll learn quickly that I am fairly obsessed with all things Disney.
That is all I've got for the moment my dears. Keep stitching and feel free to comment and follow so I can comment and follow you in return.

  1. Looking good! Jo over at serendipitous stitching is the reason for all of your influx of readers she linked to your site and said you were a new blogger. That's how I discovered you. Keep it up!

    1. Oh it is to me. 16x12 when it's all said and done. I can't wait to see the finished product, but I'm questioning whether or not my fingers will fall off before I finish it.
