More Stitching (or how what I do while watching Grey's Anatomy of Lifetime:))

Ever since I finished The Wedding I have made it a mission to work on a few smaller projects I have in my stash (except for a couple of HAED's) I have started. I been working on Orchid by Nora Corbert and Lily of the Valley also by Nora, which was given to me as a birthday gift last year by a stitching friend. For my HAED I am working on Power and Prestige and I am going to do CavaLiers on Wicker Chairs also an HAED. My husband loves those little doggies and I'm thinking that is as close as I'm gonna get to one.I guess I'll start pulling floss for the little doggies this weekend, I have the fabric for it so floss is all that is needed to start:)

Here are the pics of my current WIPS:

Long overdue update

I have a long overdue update. My middle sone got married this past Sunday to a very beautiful young lady. I had always wanted to stitch The Wedding by Lavender and Lace but never had the occasion to do so until now. It took me about a year and a half to do and the last month before my self imposed deadline I was stitcing 8 to 10 hours a day on it. I think my poor hubby is tired of Grey's Anatomy I watched it a lot while working on this project. But I made it on time and it turned out very nice if I do say so myself. I took it to Hobby Lobby to have it framed and then over to a wonderful You Mail It type place to send it off. They wrapped it very well and it made it to the bride and groom without issue. I made them wait until I got there to actually open it. Now I am back to my rotation. Or at least what I think my rotation is going to be. I put a couple of easier, not a lot of one color pieces in the rotation. I will see how that works out over the never month or so.
