A little "kiss"

I'm working on a few large projects at the moment and just needed a little something quick to stitch and finish. Once I saw this little freebie from CEC I knew it was the right project for that quick fix.

New Finish

The BC_HIH_Trilogy Yahoo Group is having a SAL and we chose "Friendship" by The Trilogy. Once I started on it I couldn't put it down and finished it in no time. Now to add the buttons and figure how to finish it.

Three months old

Wow, hard to imagine my little grandson Izaiah is now 3 months old. Just one more month before I get to hold him myself and share in the joy and love. Kisses from grandma!

Finished Ornaments

This week I picked up the ornaments I worked on earlier in the year. As always my finisher Bette did a wonderful job in making my stitching stand out. I'm so happy with the results.

Weekly Update

Where has the summer gone? I know it's almost over when all the weekly ads have "back to school" sales and Halloween decorations are on display at the stores. Mine sure is going by quickly that somedays its hard to recall what I did just the day before. With my daughter temporarily living with me I have less time to myself so my stitching time is very sacred to me but I managed this week to get a couple of hours here and there to work on one of my WIP. Here is my latest update of Mildred's Garden House by Blackbird Designs.
