started something new

Well, I couldn't settle down with the sunflowers, they are pretty but just didn't "feel it" lol. So I decided that since I've finished 2 projects this year so far, I could give myself permission to start a new project. I picked Artecy.com's Horses 3, another one for Jessie. Girl loves her horses and this one is only 8 pages. Pretty small for an artecy pattern. And I'm doing it 1x1 on 25 count lugana so it will be pretty small when finished. Easier to find frames for the smaller size patterns. I'm really liking it so far, using the smaller stitches makes the details pop more in these kinds of patterns. I'll post a pic soon. So that's what I've been doing stitchy-wise, thought I'd better post something stitching related since this is supposed to be my stitching blog, and not all nascar, all the time! lol, hugs~

mixed feelings about end of race

On one hand, Dale Jr did make a great comeback, on the other hand, Carl Edwards has proven to be such a jerk that it was sad. I really like Brad Keselowski, and what Carl did to him at the end was dangerous and so uncalled for. Makes me sad, because Carl was one of the guys that I would cheer for sometimes. Not anymore.

and what I'm working on next

This is Simply Sunflowers by Paula Vaughan. I started this one last summer, it's on 28 count evenweave which is one of my fave fabrics to stitch on so it should go fairly quickly. I think this is an appropriate project for right now since I have spring fever really bad, this should help. Or it will make it worse, lol

Fantasy Ride finished!!

Here it is all finished! Hooray, one wip down, many more to go lol! ;0)
