A few more finishes for January

I have finished up a couple pieces. One has been a UFO for a little while but finally got it finished. CEC Red White and Blue, just needs to go to the framer and then sent to the family of the soldier.



I also finished up a RR square, LK stamp, April. That was a fun stitch. I also just stitched in the last couple days, A Little Love by Plum Pudding. I used silkweaver 28ct Solo, peachy/pink with GAST Pomegranate, the colors were perfect for this piece. The other piece is from the PALS convention in Myrtle Beach this past Oct. It was from the M Designs class and will be made into a bourse, just not sure of the backing fabric yet. I will post those pics later, i need some help deciding.






It's a rainy day here in Arizona, which is unusual for us. I LOVE it! doesn't happen very often. It is suppose to be like this all weekend, perfect for sitting and stitching. I need to finish up my border blocks for my new RR that is starting very shortly. THere is also a quilter, sewing convention in town this weekend I am hoping to go to. I don't quilt nor do i sew but i still love going and buying fabric for my little pieces that i can do. LOL Plus there is usually one of the small cross stitch shops there, it's usually just a nice day out. The boys will all be out Javelina hunting this weekend and the girls work. sigh..... quiet time. This will be the boys first hunt with bow and arrow, so i hope they do well.

Also, please post in my comments if you would like to be a part of my PIF for the year of 2008. I am lucky enough to be one of Michele's PIF recipients for this year (2008). The first 6 people to post their interest in receiving something made by me by 12/31/08, and will also do the same for 6 people on their own. I will post the list on this blog once i have the individuals. This should be a fun PIF for the year.

well, gotta go stitch and do a little more laundry, it's neverending.
