Thursday wip's

Here is an update on Burden, by Heaven and Earth designs. After about 4 months of being put away I've finally gotten the desire to stitch on this one some more, his eye is starting to peek out at me, finally some details are emerging and he is getting more interesting to stitch on! I started this one in October of 2006! lol I'm hoping to finish him by the end of next year~
1x1 on 28 count evenweave

This little cutie is an artecy pattern from the artwork of Maria Van Bruggen, it's a mini-stitch called daisy dream. I'm stitching her on 18 count aida, this is halfway done~

another Inga's crochet bag/h-bag

I've finished another h-bag, this one is done in cotton worsted yarn & I lined it with plain white fabric. I was going to put a zipper in it, but it's been a long while since I've done any major sewing so I decided to stick with the basics on this one. I had to sew the lining in by hand after I got it all ready to put in as my sewing machine wouldn't stitch throught the thickness of it all together. This is going in the mail this week to my mom, her birthday is at the end of the month~

Happy Saturday

Howdy! It's been awhile since I updated here. Been busy I guess, not anything dramatic just life in general. You know how everyday things can keep you going at full speed! lol

I've been busy stitching (of course)! I received my first rr to stitch on for the artecy rr we've started on the forum. I'm excited about it, this is the first time I've done an rr. If it goes well, I'll definitely do more of them. I like to stitch for other people, it's a good feeling when someone gets excited over something you've made for them.

As for my crocheting, I'm working on another round ripple afghan-this one is called Aztec Sun round ripple, I'm using black, green and yellow for the colors in it. I'm about halfway done with it. I've got lots of crochet projects planned, but I'm being very good and not starting them all at once! (it's hard though, truth be told the only reason I haven't started them all is lack of yarn lol!)

The weather here is starting to turn cooler, time to start getting ready for the winter weather. Dh says the almanac etc. says its supposed to be a cold and wet winter. Yuck. Have I mentioned that I hate cold weather? Anything below 70 degrees is bad in my opinion. Guess I'll just have to stay busy inside. My SIL brought me more books to read so I have lots to keep occupied with.
