A bird in the cage...

Is all I managed to get done on Elizabeth.  I finished the bottom of the cage and then one of the birds.  I thought that I would be able to get both birds stitched but it didn't happen.  I find I'm doing lots of stitches, but the progress is slow on this one.  I love it though!  And I will definitely have two of Elizabeth's birds done next Sunday. :)

Here's a new update on Sockeye as well.  Coming along nicely if I do say so myself.  I love how this is shaping up too.  I've decided that I'm going to do the fish first and then work on the splash afterwards. It might prove to be a little tedious, but it should be ok. It's not going to fit on the scanner soon.  I've already lost the last few stitches on the bottom of the pic to the edge of the scanner bed so it will be photos soon.  Depending on how much I get done this week.  I might be able to squeeze it on for 1 more week.

I am sooooo jealous of all of your spring has spring pictures. snowed...and it continues to snow, today, tomorrow, the day after.  Yep...happy Spring.  I'm going to have to find something springy to stitch.

Wild Child Elizabeth!

On your marks...get set...stitch!  And stitch I did! I stitched for hours but unfortunately it doesn't look like much.  It's incredibly deceptive, but there are a lot of stitches happening in Wild Child Elizabeth's birdcage!  And I loved every stitch of it.  I love starting new projects.  The untouched smoothness of the fabric stretched in the qsnaps.  Love love love it! So here we go, Kati and I are back to our Sunday SAL of the girls.  YEAH!!!

I also started and finished LHN's Cardinal Winter...which I affectionately call Tweet!  My stitching tree is going to love this at christmas time!  YEAH! again!  LOL

Cardinal Winter by LHN
This week I'll be working on Sockeye.  Hoping to get a good chunk of him done this week as well.

The ORT report & Update

See I told you I would steal your title!  LOL  I love that!  And here's my ort jar with this last month's contribution.

Also here's an update on Sockeye.  I thought I would be finished the head of it this week, but I didn't get it done.  Oh well, it will be done for sure this coming week.  This weekend I'm working on LHN's Cardinal Winter, which I am finding I am calling Tweet in my head rather than the original title.

I did some stash shopping!!!  I couldn't help it!  I broke down!  Darn Nashville Market!  So I'm sure that the packages (yes plural) should be arriving in the mail this coming week as well.

I went and bought all the floss that I needed for Elizabeth, that Kati and I will be starting in our Sunday SAL, starting the 13th. I noticed that she uploaded the new pic on her sidebar so I snagged it for mine as well (Thanks K!)  I found the perfect frames for them at Michael's today too!  I was almost tempted to buy them so that I would have them but I maintain some self control and withheld!  Not without much contemplation first!
