My little 'angels'......

...and their devilish ways! This was the scene that awaited me when I went into my room to get the girls ready for bed...

My youngest loves to play in my floss and my oldest had it wrapped around her like a belt. I was so pissed. The ones they took the wrappers off of I will just set aside to make cording.

One top of that I'm having some problems with my WIP, Attack Cat. I ran out of the 414 I was using for the main body color. So, I went to my floss stash (before the dump fest), got a 414 and started to stitch with it. IT'S NOT THE SAME COLOR!!! It's lighter, has more blue in it. I don't know what's up and I've done too much to start over with the lighter color. Here's a pic. I don't know if you can see the difference or not.

It's the 4 bottom right rows on the right side of the picture. I guess I'll just keep on stitching on it and see how things look in the end.

A Quick FYI.....

Dad's Christmas Gift

I was able to pick this up from the framer at my LNS today...

.....didn't turn out beautiful!? I absolutely love it!!! The ladies at LNS today loved it too. They took a picture of it to show Deb, the designer of this piece & also the shop owner. They have their's in a white frame, but think she will like this frame more. It has just a little bit of red in it that makes the piece just pop.

It has been a long time since I stitched something for my dad & I know that he is really gonna love it!!!

My 1st Finish of the Year & a new blog!!

So, I'm finally ready to start my NEW blog. Yipee!!!! After reading all of the blogs of my fellow PALS, I really wanted to start my own.....again.

Cue trupmet fanfare...

Without further ado, here is my first finish of the year......

GhostStitcher Wedding Sampler
Finished 11/13/2010

I was really excited to get this piece in the mail. It was my first GhostStitcher project and I wanted to make sure it looked perfect (as far as cross stitch goes).

When the company called me and told me it was mostly backstitch, I thought it would be a piece of cake. Here was my nemesis...

These two little corner frames were a pain in my butt. There were so many colors and so many quarter stitch only parts that I spent more time changing colors than actual stitching. I'm really hoping that the people that this goes to really love it and I hope to be getting a new piece in the mail soon.
