Spirit of the Sockeye ...and other stuff

Here she is!  Isn't she lovely!  Oh my gosh, this picture and no picture that I could ever take will do this piece justice!  It is shockingly beautiful in person...and I'm so proud to say that sockeye is finally finished.  I got some stitching time in this past weekend and finished it up.  I love it!

I also had a good day of stitching on Sunday and worked on my SAL piece with Kati!  Elizabeth is coming along.  I think I'll actually be starting the stitches on Liz soon, but I want to do the bird's nest first.  Hubby and I are going camping this long weekend, so hopefully while he's fishing out on the boat I'll be able to stitch on Sunday out in the sun :)  Sounds like a nice plan.

My Tusal is not as pathetic as it was last month.  Thank you very much!  LOL

We have had the most amazing summer, with trips and camping.  I'll fill you all in soon with loads of pics.  We took full advantage of the freedoms we have in our lives and just did summer!  LOL

Ort and Run

Goodness gracious!  It's been a month since I've posted!  I haven't done much stitching at all since the last TUSAL  in fact if I put it in my big ort jar you wouldn't even be able to tell....so this is the little container that I have at my stitching chair that I pop them into as I stitch and then transfer it to the big jar at picture time.

EEEKKKK!!!  That's a little embarrassing!  But hey, I was away on vacation for 10 days, then two full weekends we were away camping and boating on the lake! AAHHHH  it's wonderful!  I figure we have months and months and months of cold weather here in Alberta....I can stitch then.  Not to say that I won't be stitching, because I plan on sitting down and stitching tonight.  I have to get Sockeye finished...because I have a FABULOUS chart that I have been dying to stitch and is OOP...but Dani was wonderful enough to lend it to me.  So I want to get started on that as soon as sockeye is done!  WOO HOOO  Poor Elizabeth! I haven't had a Sunday available to stitch on her.  We aren't planning on going away this weekend, so maybe this Sunday coming up  :)
