Hurray for Hollywood!

I just love the Oscars!  I find it perfect stitching television.  And last night was no exception.  I get the room to myself as hubby is not a big fan, so he goes into the bedroom or whichever room he chooses to watch something on Discovery, or the sports channel, and sit back in my recliner with a cool glass of ice tea and my stitching and enjoy the show.  But not just the Oscars....oh no....I must watch all the red carpet shows to see what everyone is wearing.  Lovely lovely dresses...some not so hot, but that's ok.

So I got quite a bit done on Humboldt Coast, I would have liked to have made more progress but c'est la vie.  It's coming along slowly but surely.

Have a couple of finishes to report.  The first being one that I have had in my possession since it was released, but I hasn't gotten around to doing it.  But last weekend during hermit week, I started and finished it.  I just love it.  Not sure how I'm going to finish it yet, so I'll live with it for a bit and see what it developes into.
*** Edited...  This design is by Just another button company and it's called Lovebird.

Then this weekend I started and finished what seems to be the freebie of the month.  Merry Christmas Deer by The Little Stitcher.  Love this one too, and this will definitely be finished as an ornament.

I'm thinking about my trip to Mexico now, and I actually bought our sunscreen this weekend! Weeeeeeeee!!!! and a new pair of flipflops. In the next couple of weekends, I think I`m going to look for a new swimsuit.  Not that I really relish that fact, and I don`t really need one.....I just want one.  We`ll see, still have a while to think about it.

awesome progress on Humbolt, and love the finished patterns. I'm so looking forward to Christmas again mainly to see your stitching tree!! :D

Great stitching pieces. Please will you revile the name of the pattern that has the bird on the spool of thread? I'd love to stitch that one up.

Love your progress, and love both finished pieces as well! I believe I have the merry christmas deer but I have to get that cardinal one!

Barbi--that cardinal finish is awesome!! What is the name of the chart? And your reindeer are so cute, too.

I don't blame you at all for being excited about your upcoming trip--you'll have a great time. Good luck with the swimsuit shopping--not one of my favorite tasks either!

OH pretty finishes and good progress. I was watching hockey which wasn't so conducive and then tuned into the Oscars as there wasn't anything else on and the ones you want to watch are right at the end. good luck with the shopping and have fun on your trip!

Great stitching! The ornie and cardinal look great and I just love seeing your HC updates. It's such a pretty design!
