some updates

Here is my progress on the sign sampler, after finishing the first row, I've discovered I am 3 rows off on all but the bottom row :0( I've decided to skip to the bottom two rows to see what it will look like when I get those signs stitched. If it doesn't look wrong I will leave it alone~grrr

This is Reign by My Big Toe. I'm stitching it 2x2 on 28 count with Vikki Clayton silks. I've changed the colors quite a bit, it calls for Crescent colors old red paint/dmc 902 and old purple paint/dmc 3740. I didn't like those colors, they seem drab to me. I wanted brighter colors~

and last, but certainly not least, here is my progress on Dark Cherry for the haed bb sal. I've almost completed the first page. Got the last page in the last sal weekend, lol I'd say I'm a little behind! She's so pretty, I love stitching on her ;0)

corner-to-corner crochet throw finished

Here is my latest afghan finish, it's a free pattern by red heart called Corner-to-corner crochet throw. I started it as a scrap afghan, naturally had to buy more yarn to finish it, lol! I really like this pattern, it was very easy to do. My next project will be a kit I ordered from Herrschner's for my b-day, can't wait for it to get here! ;)

My teeny, tiny biscornu!



Here is the smallest biscornu I've ever attempted! It's 19 stitches wide by 19 stitches long and that's including the backstitching to sew it with lol! It's on 18 count aida with hdf, I don't know the name of the color. It was from a d-bag~

Happy 4th of July

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July! We stayed home and did fireworks with family, it was alot of fun. All the neighbors around did them for like 3 days/nights in a row, they put on some great shows!

Watched the race last night, it was pretty boring actually until the end. I sort of lost interest when Junior got wrecked. Congrats to Tony Stewart for the win, I'm glad that all the drivers made it out safely-even peanuthead Kyle. Who I hoped learned a lesson. Which I doubt he did, but oh well~

American Sign Language Sampler



Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't really been posting much lately. It's been really hot and I've been really cranky lol. So I've just been quiet, no need to share the misery!

Here is what I'm working on at the moment, it's the American Sign Language Sampler by Jemini Designs. I started this probably about 2 yrs ago for my daughter. She has an interest in sign language so when I found this pattern I had to stitch it for her. I'm about halfway there with it, it calls for beads in the leaves of the border. I'm thinking of substituting them for a really pretty variegated silk floss. It's coming along pretty quickly so hopefully I will have it finished up soon~
