Sept. Ort report/Lizzie update

It's SAL update post time.  Both for the TUSAL and for Elizabeth, that I have been sadly neglecting!  Sorry KATI!!!  But CONGRATS to Kati for finished Elizabeth!  She looks fantastic.  I've still got about 2 weekends of go on her I think, so she'll have a couple of free Sundays until with start our 3rd girl...and I think we mutually voted for Mary Margaret :)  YEAH!  So she'll be the next one.  Can't wait to start her and with Kati finishing and with the next one all picked out..it just motivates me to get Elizabeth finished!

I have all my holiday JCS magazines now...the Halloween edition and the Christmas Ornie edition, and I also splurged and for the Halloween collection from JCS so I have been oggling and putting stickies all over the pages picking out the one sthat I want to stitch.  So much to stitch, so much I want to do and get done, and so little time.  but as I was telling Kati, life should be slowing down for me a little now.  Hubby will be off working out of town now and then.  then there's hunting season, where he'll be gone on weekends, and at least one week in November.  And then there's hockey season....that's a lot of time in front of the tv not having to pay too much attention.  LOL  Just don't tell him that.  so I'm thinking that I should be able to catch up on some of the stitching that I've been lax on during the summer.

I found tinkerbell on sale for an unbelievable price and I couldn't let her just sit in the sales bin and wait for someone else to take her.  And as she is my favorite disney character, I brought her home!  she's just so pretty!

Look at my Lu-lu.  She turned 1 at the end of August she's my living doll!!! I just had to share :)

Oh, I have the Xmas ornie mag too and it is so hard to choose which one to do first. I love Elizabeth - who is the designer?

Lulu is lovely.

hugs, Kaye xoxox

Fantastic progress on both your TUSAL and Elizabeth! With your smoking needles you'll have her finished in no time at all!

I've got all the magazines too but still need to take a closer look as to which ones I will hopefully stitch up.

TInker is super cute, I wouldn't have been able to leave her in the sales bin either!

And Lu-lu well what can I say, she is a beauty! Happy 1st birthday to her!!!

Lizzie is coming together so nicely, Barbi and Kati's finish looks great!! Love that wild hair :)

I'm so glad you'll be finding extra time to stitch in the next few months--I could use some of that myself right now :)

Elizabeth is looking wonderful! Your stitching is beautiful!

I also love oggling the JCS Ornie issues and really enjoyed their first Halloween Ornie book. There are so many ornies in all those books that I want to do also. Good luck with your ornie stitching during hockey games.

Tinkerbell is adorable and she looks great watching over your ort jar. Lu-lu is still adorable! She has such a sweet face.
