might be a blizzard in these here parts tomorrow

I've been a bad blogger, lol, it's been awhile since I posted. I have been stitching I promise though I have no pics to show you. Thinking I will invest in another digital camera so I can take pics, especially since most of my projects will eventually be bigger than my scanner, ha I have started a new project, my last major stash buy for a while. It's Mother's Bliss by Mirabilia and I bought the pattern, fabric and threads from 123stitch, got my order in about 2 days after I ordered, they are the best!

There's supposed to be a blizzard hitting us here in Oklahoma tomorrow, we will see. The last time they called for blizzard weather it barely snowed lol. Either way I'm prepared, go to work if it doesn't get bad or stay home and stitch if it gets snowy and icy ! Make money one way, have extra stitchy-time the other way, ha!

just an update of a few wip's

My digital camera has officially given up the ghost so I've had to use my scanner for these pics. Which is actually a good thing as they are better pics but sadly I can't show my orts for the TUSAL, boo. lol
So without further ado here is what I been working on the past Jan/Feb~

First is my progress on haed's freebie sal Literate Dragon, I'm hoping to get the first page finished on him before the next one comes out in March~
 Next is a Dimensions kit called Butterfly & Daisies I bought at hobby lobby, they were having a 30% off sale on all their needlework kits and I couldn't resist. It's been awhile since I worked from a kit and even longer since I've stitched on 14 count aida, it's taken some getting used to but I love it~
 And last but not least is Paula Vaughan's Rose of Sharon. I'm stitching this one on 28 count evenweave. It's such a lovely design and I plan on starting another one in her quilt series as soon as this one is finished.

So that's what I've been up to stitchy-wise, other than that it's been work, work and more work lol. Such is the life, gotta pay for the stitchy goods somehow!!
