I will finish my husband's Pitt Panther this month so help me.
I will. I have two days left and I am so close. I don't not want to carry this over into July. Nope. No way.
My very random blog about me, stitching, and any other random thing on my mind. I always said that I'm simply a work in progress. Here's the proof.
I will finish my husband's Pitt Panther this month so help me.
Last night I checked the wildflowers and I have some small pink blooms! Some of the flowers look like they are just about to burst open. I would have taken pictures but it has been very stormy.
Apparently Ann Arbor is a hot spot for fairies. I'm sure I didn't see that on the map of all fairy transport locations in the Artemis Fowl Files.
Here is my progress on Star Fae after a weekend of stitching.
The wings are nice and sparkly but it doesn't show up in the scan. Back to Frog Prince today for the SAL.
I kind of miss her though...
It is very difficult to play the flute while laughing at your husband cavorting through the house playing the tamborine your four year old daughter handed him so that the three of you could have a parade.
It started when Dana put up that very dangerous question: Who are your favorite designers?
I sent Chas out for a break away from Angie (he is a SAHD) and to put gas in the car (because our breaks are largely functional).
I haven't posted my Chatelaine WIPs in a very long time so I made an effort to take pictures today (since they are too big for the scanner).
We were cleaning around the study today when I re-discovered the printed version of this post. It never fails to make me smile because even the best sci-fi shows crosses the line at least once (usually far more often).
So there is this nice little Fairy Stitch a Long at the HAED board.
Need to control and fix things. Dear Jeanette unintentionally pointed it out to me in a post on CBB. She was very kind about another of my young cousins being deployed and said, "Make this an important opportunity to learn to 'let go'. Definitely beyond your control. On the other hand, it doesn't hurt to bend the ear of the Mother Goddess, she certainly will understand.Know my prayers are added too." (Thanks Jeanette!)
I haven't posted much, but I did manage to find some time for stitching amidst all the birthday hooplah.
3. I have also started Ballet Pigs. I couldn't resist. I needed a bit of a break from the rich tones in Frog Prince and also wanted a bit of whimsy. I love them. I also love that of the quick stitches that I've recently started, it is probably the quickest. You are looking at the top row from end to end. I can imagine how the entire design might drive a stitcher to some sort of alcohol use, but I love this little dancing piggy. Can't wait til I actually reach the little dancing pig!
In honor of Fairy Day , I am stitching Star Fae for the HAED extended stitch a long. This morning I realized that the pigs in Ballet Pigs have wings and therefore could have qualified for the sal. Oh well. I love a new start.
I have put a few stitches in it (almost completed one full ten by ten square) and I love it! I think I will thoroughly enjoy the next few days of stitching.
I found this on a friend's blog and made one modification to include a stitching related item (and because the actual item is quite frankly no one's business regardless of my answer).
Last night after the fourth birthday hoopla had ended, Chas and I left Angie with her paternal grandparents so that we could enjoy some time alone. Maybe it was unfair of us. After all, we were all completely exhausted after the party--the heat and all the activity did in everyone. However, Angie actually played with Grandpa to his delight and they were stunned when we returned because they had not realized three hours had passed. I guess it wasn't bad after all.
Reinspired today by Mathstitcher, I picked up JG again and worked on one of the crane cameos. No photos yet (I know that no longer comes as a shock to anyone actually reading this blog).
I recently bought the HAED quick stitch design "Our Angel" by Sarah Butcher. It is unusual for me because I'm not really an angel person. (Wow that is so true on many levels.)
Now I am done throught part four (except for thse pesky corners, but I'll figure out how to fill them later). I'll post a picture of GTK tomorrow. Tonight is double Gymboree (we well just have to see how that goes) I'm pleased that the stitching is done just in time for the Wednesday QS SAL at HAED. I moved GTK out of the travel bag and returned Frog Prince supplies to their places.
I'm almost done with GTK through part 4. I have probably one half hour left of the rhodes stitches and then I can move on to part five. At this stage, I will just prep the fabric and do the cross stitching. If I finish the Rhodes now, they will be fuzzy by the end.
I have been stitching like a madwoman on Frog Prince 3 over the last few days and here are my results: Not bad for just a few weeks. I have to say that this Gustafson is reminding me of Teresa Wentzler with all the confetti stitching. I may need to take a break from it even though I'm enjoying watching it come together.
Also looking very nice. I've almost completed the first page. I am not a true page by page stitcher, or a ten by ten, or cross country stitcher. I'm some combination of the three.
I'll be stitching on it next week. If I stay focused I think I can finish it by the fall. If you look closely you can just make out it's width and then there are about 6 to 9 more rows to do.
If I finish the first four parts of GTK this week I'll be posting another picture of that, but since it is larger than my scanner, I'll just wait for better light to actually photograph it. If I finish the cross stitching on part 5, I will reward myself with starting a new qs (or three).
I know this is just a miscarriage and that compared to friends and family, it's not a devastating loss, but I'm still a little sad. We will try again and my spirit isn't crushed. This isn't an enormous loss, but I'm still a little achy for the tiny person who could have been.
Well Doctor N's Office just called and told me that the thyroid would not have caused the miscarriage but the pregnancy likely caused the dip.
The higher dose: Violet.
I am using the wisteria for GTK instead of the blue I purchased with the kit from ECS. So I have this nice piece of 32 count pale blue linen that is 8 x 7 and no idea what I could stitch on it. Then tonight I had a breat idea: it will fit the Ballet Pigs qs perfectly! Now I just need to kit the threads and I'll be set to start something else.
1. Finish stitching the last zen garden and corner element in JG.
Doctor Who that is.
So last week, I asked the pharmacist to call my doctor to renew some prescriptions when I picked up one of my prescriptions. Over the weekend, Target called to say that some of the prescriptions are in, but that Doctor N wanted my thyroid tested before issuing a new prescription.
One other thing about my miscarriage:
