I needed a quick finish so I stitched this little hummingbird from  daily cross stitch. I love their little freebies :)

Brooke's Books has a free advent SAL. This is #1 Katie Kitty. It was a quick stitch. Took me less than a day and loved the colors.

End of February Updates

It's been a while since I've been here but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. Here's proof....

I've finished the Novalee 2010 Easter SAL. I'm sure I started it in 2010 too but one of the disadvantages of having many WIPS is losing or forgetting about them. So glad this one is finished. Pretty pastels. 

I have been working on Grand Marquoir. I really wanted to have it finished by the end of 2013 but that didn't happen. Pretty sure it will be finished by the end of this year (or at least I'm going to try). I love stitching this. It is so pretty. 

This is a SAL from AAN. Halloween and Christmas are my favorites to stitch. Looking forward to the next part.

Lastly for the updates is this Monthly SAL from Sanman Originals. New part every month. I started late and hope to be caught up by the end of March. 

Here is where I am currently on Grand Marquoir. I decided to go down to make sure I counted my fabric right. All of a sudden I almost had a panic attack thinking I would get to the end and not have room.

Christmas Finishes

I've gotten two new finishes in. Love them both. Haven't made them into ornaments yet and sadly I don't see it happening real soon. 
The first is from Blueladie Designs. It's so cute and reminds me of a cat I had. He wouldn't leave the tree alone and many times I would find broken balls on the floor where he would bat them around. You can find it here... 

The next one is from Brookes Books. Who doesn't love kitties even if they are grumpy? Everyone can relate to this fella.  You can find it here....

Grand Marquoir

I've been trying to stitch some every night and have been making progress on Grand Marquoir. I would love to have this done by the end of the year and I am pretty sure I can. Two pages down, four to go.

Two Finishes!

It's a miracle! I have two finishes in one week haha. The first one I have been taking to Corys therapy appts. It was easy since there wasn't a lot of color changes. Working on the pumpkin I noticed this looks like a duck now that is all I see in it. I found the pumpkin freebie here

I love this little Reindeer Kiss Ornament. So cute and pretty fast, even for this slow poke. you can find this one here.. then go to gift design.

My plans are to work on Grand marquoir tomorrow since it hasn't seen the light of day in ages. Here I had a plan to finish it this year. Haven't stitched nearly as much as I would have liked and this year is flying by. The whole house is sleeping guess I should too.

Quincy's Wedding

On September 21st we welcomed a new member to our family. NOT a baby thank goodness but I now have a son-in-law. The wedding was BEAUTIFUL. It took us 3 months to get the property cleaned up and ready but it was so worth it. It seriously looked like it could have been in a magazine. Here's a few pictures.
Quincy and her Daddy

Reading their vows

My favorite picture

Mr and Mrs

Dustin, me, Cory, Quincy, Dakota, Patti (Dustins mom) and Jeff (Dustins step dad)

Groom and his men

Bride and her girls

Entrance dance, the wobble

Quincy made all the cupcakes the night before but bought the cake from Kroger

This was a 100 year old tree on my mother in laws property. We sanded it and Quincy and Dakota burnt the letters into it.
This is all of their siblings. Quincy's are the one in the very back Jake, Cory is up front, Baylee is next to Dakota (the Groom) and Blaise is in the white next to Baylee. The rest are Dakotas. Sadly not one of their siblings are full siblings but that sure doesn't stop them from being close and loving each other.
