Lizzie Kate HD and more......

My Lizzie Kate finish of housework can kill you. I think this is so funny as I feel this way a lot of the time. This is done on 32 count antique ivory. It's looks washed out from the flash. I changed the flowers to a burnt orange and the same eggplant color that the bottom words are done in. It was fun-but it seems like it took me forever to finish. Also, don't look too hard an error may slap you on the forhead-LOL

The above picture is Alexis and Brandon on the first day of school. They are together for the first time in a long time. Alexis is in the 6th and Brandon is in the8th grade this year. They go from 9:30 am to 4:30pm. I can't tell you how much I hate those times. All our school times changed this year as the busing changed in order to save money.

This is Caleb, he is in the 4th grade. My baby-doesn't he look sweet?

These fun threads were a surprise from Jinger of Rae of Sunshine Stitches . She has done a really cool flip flop piece with some fun thread for edging. Stop by her blog and see it. So she very generously sent me some-I can't wait to try it. Thank you Jinger!

Thanks so much for the comments on my last finish and the kids. They were much appreciated. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Tropical storm Fay at the current moment is heading my way-so right now I expect a wet one. Happy Stitching!

Daydream finish and other things.......

Well I have been a busy little bee. Though I didn't post when I left, the kids and I went to South Florida last week and since I have back I have been doing a bang up job playing a bum. But, alas duty will call this week! This is my daydream finish by My Mark Designs . Please forgive any wrinkles. It's done on a 32 count Silkweaver solo that I love. This will be framed eventually to go into my boys room.

This is a picture of the kids the first day of our vacation. Don't they look fresh? Too bad they didn't have a picture of all of us on the Friday following this picture as we were all limping and hobbling out of Islands of Adventure. At that point the only adventure we wanted was our hotel room. LOL So, as you can see we went to Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and two water parks. Disney's Blizzard Beach and Sea World's new water park called Aquatica. Both were great! Aquatica was not that big-but give them more time. I was so waterlogged that even the shower didn't appeal to me! But we had a great time and though there was a time or two or three that I could have reached out and touched the children in a special way-we made it through. I am most thankful that we made it to and from safely.

I want to say thank you to Michelle of Ozark Sew and Sews . She gifted me with sharing the love award. Thanks Michelle! Now I did not pass on any blog awards but I have decided to highlight a different blog or blogs when I post. So, I will be sharing the love in this way. So here you go and I hope you find someone that may be new to you!
