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 :)

Awww... don't you love the little birdie, Barbie? So sweet--and the fabric you used is very pretty.

Sorry about the frog's visit--it is so, so frustrating to have spent so long stitching and realize it all has to come out! Love your progress on Humboldt's Coast, though.

Lulu is such a darling dog--love here sweet face. I'll bet she has loved this cold winter, hasn't she?
