Drama Queen finish!

Finally, a finish! I have had a heck of time trying to get a decent picture of this. I concede! This is drama queen by Lizzie Kate. It is part of her girl thing pattern. Obviously, this applies to my little drama queen Alexis! It is done on 28 count ray of light linen which is a very pale yellow. Though it is very hard to tell that. It was relatively quick to stitch and I haven't quite decided how I am going to finish it. I have been stitching some-mostly Lizzie Kate. I have a small ornament almost done-it is called holly jolly. Thanks for all the encouraging words regarding my slump. I am trying to stitch a little everyday, though that doesn't always happen.

I have anxious to see what is going to come out of Nashville-mostly to see if I am tempted with anything. I am really interested in seeing Quaker Gone Tropic by Michelle Ink. The new Blue Ribbon Designs are beautiful. Not sure I am going there yet. Anyway, off to try and stitch. Have a great weekend!

Winter Exchange from Myrna

I received my winter exchange from Myrna of Still Living in Wonderland. She sent me an awesome exchange with a pin keep post called signs of winter by Bent Creek. I really like this finsh as all you have to do is change one pin keep to another as the season changes! She also sent an adorable scissor fob and just a treasure trove of goodies. They are already being put to great use-so no pictures. But, you can see a much better picture of the entire exchange on her blog! Thank you so much Myrna! I love everything and btw the cat treats are already gone along with the peppermint too!

In other news-still working on my 2009 stitchng plans-so many charts and so little time! I have started a Lanarte kit and I am hoping to start the LK Halloween flips. I am a little dissapointed-I didn't do a whole lot of finishes this past year-in fact it was less than 2007. I know it's about the enjoyment of stitchng-but I would love to accomplish more. Also, I have been in a serious stitching slump! But, it will get better. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! Happy stitching too you!
