Oh Suzannah!

How I love thee!  Yep it was SAL Sunday this past Sunday, which meant that the first stitches of life have gone into Suzannah, our 4th and final girl in the series.  Of all the girls she's the most awkward looking.  those arms are just a little too bizarre, and her skirt is out of control. But she is going to be a fun stitch nevertheless.  Stitched once again on the same fabric as the others. 32 ct lugana Goldspinner.

I had a good day of stitching on Sunday, Hubby left for ice fishing in the morning and all my housework had been done the day before.  So my plans on Sunday were quite simple...stitch..bake (Cupcakes with peanut butter icing...SCRUMPTIOUS!) and make my meatloaf with whipped potatoes...also yummy!  So that was it.  Watched my guilty pleasure...Real Housewives of Beverly Hills...please do not judge...it's good mindless tv to stitch by. LOL  It was a great day.

So now I am back to working on hummingbird again.  I'm hoping to finish this in the next couple of weeks. Whew...do I have big goals or what?  But I'm going to try anyway.  For those of you that would like me to stitch another one for you...HA HA HA! My mom will be lucky if she gets hers!  LOL I think it's going to be my summer camping project...while the boy fishes..the girl will stitch. :)

I still haven't decided on what colour fabric to stitch fatmen.  I'm leaning toward a blue though.  But don't take my word for it..I still haven't tossed the floss.

Great progress for one day of stitching! I like Suzannah's polka-dotted blouse!

You're off to a great start on your final girl, Barbi :) And we all have our guilty pleasures in TV watching--mine is The Bachelor!!

Looking forward to seeing your Fatmen start...

Great progress! I'm definitely going to have to have smoking needles to keep up with you!

I do love her awkwardness though, and I agree she will be a fun stitch!

I haven't decided on fabric yet for 6 fat men either... I'm torn between blue and purple... but we still have a little time to decide...

Great progress! Yes her arms are wonky but she'll look wonderful.

Oh love Susannah already, still dressing Elizabeth here. Would love to join your 6 fat men, but I think I will pass this time as I have lots of wintery snowy charts to do.
Awww how sweet of you to offer to stitch a hummingbird for your mum, it looks incredible.
I must not be tempted!!!!!!
