IHSW update

So I did a little bit of stitching on the weekend, not as much as I had intended to do.  I actually had intended to do way more than I did over the Olympics but I really didn't.  Just got enthralled in the sports and didn't pay too much attention to what was in my lap....especially since I stitched for 2 1/2 hours on Elizabeth, only to realize I was stitching in the complete wrong area of the piece and it took a whole 10 minutes to frog it all out.  I was SOOO not happy, oh well...that's the way it goes sometimes.  10 minutes to 2.5 hr ratio makes one a little pissy!

So I sat and worked on Humboldt coast this weekend.  Not too much, I had planned on finishing this page that I am working on currently, but that didn't happen.  I ended up having some company, and had to put away the stitching.  By the time that they left I was tired and just sat and watched tv, plus hubby came home and had to tell me all about the fishing derby.  

I did a little Valentine piece as well,  this is a part of a freebie that can be found here but I adapted it to Carol's piece that she did last year. I'll be making this into a little ornament.

Speaking of Valentines, I was spoiled by my love this year.  My balloon is still floating :)

And last but certainly NOT least is my baby Lulu!  It's been a while since I showed a picture of her...not for lack of trying, she turns her head everytime I point a camera in her direction.  Here she sits quite content being pampered by Grandma :)

Mira started!

Sunday stitching was fruitful.  I worked on Humboldt Coast my Sunday SAL with Kati, and got lots done.

I am really looking forward to two fishing derbies that are coming up at the end of this month and the beginning of next month.  Two weekends where hubby is going to be out of town and ice fishing for the two weekends in a row...which means uninterrupted stitching!  Can't wait!!!

It is yet a meager little start, but it's a start.  I don't know whether I want to stitch on this thru the Olympics, or should I start a new "olympic stitching" project.  Do any of you start a new project for the Olympics?  I am an Olympics junkie as some may call me, but when I mentioned that I have to pick an Olympic stitching project...that took them over the edge!  LOL  I guess only us stitchy people understand.  Anyway this is my start on Mirabilia's Elizabeth.  I'm stitching her on Silkweavers "floral bliss"after a few floss tosses I like how the colours popped on this the best.
