the pack/janlynn

Here is The Pack, by Janlynn. I started this one 12/01/06 and I figure it's about time I got serious about finishing it up as there are so many other wolves I want to stitch. I'm feeling a little out of control with the number if wip's I have (about a dozen or so) Most of them are haed's though and I think they should be counted as "lifer's", not wip's lol!

The weather here in Oklahoma has turned hot, almost 100 degrees the last few days. I feel grateful that it waited until mid-July to get so hot-I remember a few years back when the 100 degree temps started arriving in May~

Not much else is going on in my little world right at the moment. This weekend dh and his dad are going to finally finish fixing the bathroom floor. Never seen such procrastination in my life, this has been an ongoing project for about 2 months now. Who knew a tiny little bathroom floor could cause so much trouble, insert eyeroll here. I'm a little out of patience with the whole situation, to tell you the truth~oh well, that's life huh

TW's Needle Guardian

Here is Teresa Wentzler's Needle Guardian all finished! I stitched this for my mom and finally got brave enough to do the finishing work on it a few weeks ago. I used the recommended silks, beads etc and used a jewelery toggle clasp for the fastener. I'm really proud of myself for actually doing the finishing work on this one, it's not perfect but I'll get better with practice, I'm stitching another one for my sis-n-law for Christmas, lol! hugs Christine

Hi all! I started something new for the cc bb stitchathon after all lol! I started a freebie from Passione Ricamo called blue guardian angel. I've done as much on it as I can, had to order some metallic threads from 123 stitch to finish her with. Now I'm working on an artecy sci-fi bookmark for my hubby, I'm about halfway done with it. I'ts been a pretty easy stitch, I should have it done by this weekend, hopefully he won't lose this one like he did the last one I made for him~he says it's in a book-somewhere. Since he has alot of books, finding it will be hard lol! oh well, I love him and I love to stitch so it's all good huh! hugs, Christine

spend hours on the internet, lol!

starting over

Hello! I've been offline for about a month now due to my computer completely crashing. So now I'm starting over with alot of stuff, so I figured why not start over with the blog too, lol!
So here I am, this week is the July stitchathon on the Cross Stitch Crazy bb, not real sure what I'll be stitching on. Maybe wolf 2, or I might just start something new. Bad Christine lol!
I'll try to get some pics up of what I'll be working on soon~hugs Christine
