The title of this post says it all. I stitched my fingers off this weekend! It was so nice to just sit around the house Saturday getting laundry done and stitching. I had declared that I wasn't going to have any plans of Saturday and my boyfriend obliged. We had a movie marathon day! Started with Mighty Ducks and D2, What Dreams May Come with a little bit of Red Dwarf to change things up. After going out for ice cream at the fab Union Dairy we finished the night with Night at the Museum. I managed to get 4 loads of laundry done and most of it is put away. Thats a new record being as how laundry rates up there with getting dental work done. On to stitching...
I pulled out an old WIP and started working on it for a change of pace. I started this birth announcement back in 2009 when my then best friend was pregnant. Well life got in the way as it usually does and the baby was born before I finished it. And then I had a terrible falling out with my friend. So it sat and sat until I was cleaning my closet the other day.
I had Pooh, the hunny pot, half of the checked bottom and the star stitched when I put it away. This last week I did some back stitching, and finished the bottom. I set this aside yesterday to stitch a bib for my boss. She sent a message out that she is a new grandma! I was sitting at the shop and thought this was the perfect excuse to work on a stamped bib that I had been eying for weeks!
I just love the way these look! It has been quite some time since I've worked with stamped cross stitch and my poor fingers are taking the brunt of it. I finally got a system down so I didn't stab myself!
2 colors done...3ish to go. I'm hoping to have this finished by the end of the week...I'll update later if I manage to finish.
As always I'll leave you with animal pics!
Bear deciding on if he is going to pounce the bug or not.
I should have taken a picture Saturday but Pippin was lying on my phone. All three cats were sleeping on the bed with Rylee in the middle. All 4 had tongues sticking out! It was so stinkin cute but Pippin had horrible gas and about 3 minutes later everyone had left the bedroom to seek fresher air.
Have a good week everyone!
