Happy Dance & Progress

My little valentine finish that I loved from the first time I saw it, and then I had to track down the chart, and I'm so glad that I have a stitching fairy god-sister that was able to help me with this one.  Isn't it pretty, I love this valentine freebie by Erica Michaels.  It's an oldie but a goodie.

Progress on Sockeye is coming along.  I'm actually love it at the moment, so I'm going to stitch thru this one this weekend and see how far I get.  However a feel a sinus/head cold coming on and I might not be able to see it by the time the weekend gets here...but I'm going to try. 

Hubby is leaving for a fishing derby this weekend.  Leaving tomorrow night and coming home on Sunday.  So I'll have lots of stitching time this weekend (if the sinus cold allows)  Stitching and the Oscars...and lots of great junk food.  That's what my weekend is going to consist of.  It's only Wednesday and I'm already looking forward to the weekend!  wooo hooo  Hopefully by the end of the weekend, my fish will have a head!

Good Golly, Missy Molly!

Molly - Carriage House Samplings - Stitched on 32 ct GoldSpinner

I couldn't wait to post her today.  She's finished.  Oh my gosh I LOVE HER!!  I put the final stitches into her at 10:47 pm last night.  The picture of course doesn't do it any justice, but it does show that she's finished.  I'm so glad that Kati and I are doing these girls!  So now until Kati finishes her's, I will work on ornies on Sundays :)  which is a good plan I think.

I've got another little finish but I haven't scanned it yet.  And I also want to post a progress of sockeye, but it's so perfectly in the q-snaps right now that I don't want to move it.  So I figure that I will stitch on it today and then scan them both in tomorrow for post.

I just couldn't wait to post Molly for 1 more day!  hehehehe

Molly update

I don't have anything else to show today either..I didn't work on sockeye at all last week, I was so busy last week that all I got done were the smalls, but I did get some sunday stitching done and worked on Molly.  I am so close to finishing her!  I'm so excited!  And Kati and I have decided that we are working on Elizabeth next!  She's the one with the wild hair, and I'm dying to get my needle working on it!

I've got my eye on some new charts too.  Eeekkk!!!  And I don't want to buy anything, but these ones are so calling my name.  I'm holding off so far, but I don't know how long I can last.

Tonight we're going out to special occasion, we just feel like going, so there won't be any stithcing going on tonight, but I'm hoping that tomorrow, I'll be home from work and then I'll just settle in and work on sockeye.  Plus there's another valentine freebie that I was able to track down that I want to do before the weekend is up as well.  It's an oldie but a goodie!

Shameless request!!

EDIT***  Apparently they only accept Canadian votes ***
Thanks for trying anyway :)

I just found out about a contest, that I've entered Lulu's photos.  But she needs votes and of course, I can't vote!  EEEKKKK!!!!  So I'm asking you all if you have a split second to vote to see if Miss Lulu if she has a shot.  I found out about the contest late :() So the other pups have a huge headstart on her. But it will be fun to see where she ends up.  The links are under her photos.  Vote for your favorite or vote for all of them.  but please vote! 
And Yes...that's why I named this post Shameless request....because I know that it is.

Thanks guys!!!

Feb TUSAL & two smalls

This week has pretty much been a write off for any significant stitching.  I was out doing things Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and then Friday I was just so happy to sit that I didn't really want to pick up my sockeye.  So I flipped thru some of the freebies that I had and picked a couple of small projects to do. The one I was looking for I couldn't find but I like the ones that I did find. 

First is a little one called Basket of Hearts by Charland Designs, a 1999 design. I didn't do the border on it but I think it's cute and I'll probaby make it into a little fob.

Then to celebrate the year of the rabbit, I found this one Bunny Hop Scissor Fob by Brightneedle, also an older one from 2002.  But they were both nice little quick stitches.

Last but not least I took a shot for TUSAL. 

Hockey game on tonight so I'm hoping to get some good stitches into sockeye, since I haven't touched it at all this week.
