still not much..

hey all..

my mojo is still MIA... but i have a few things to share this week... first is the EPP wreath that i taught at the guild meeting last week... it was fun to do.. and.. makes a cute little ornament...

then there is the string stocking i did... i taught this at the guilds workshop last saturday...   i had a very small class so had lots of time to spend with them doing this...  somehow things got messed up and they thought i wouldn't be there to teach... so only 2 of them actually brought stuff to work on the stocking...  i'll teach it again if others still want to do it... doing stocking is very easy..

and... my "Chickens?!" cross stitch... the cross stitch and backstitching is done... all that's left is for me to put my name and the year on it... and then sew down the tin stars...

i am working on a couple of UFO's that i have up in the studio... it's slow going and omg!.. they were started way back when (many many moons ago).. and i obviously didn't measure very well back then... so actually putting them together is challenging... lol..  and of course i don't have any more of those fabrics sooo... i'm winging it... lmao... should be interesting to see how it finally turns out..

and today is my BFF daniel's birthday... Happy Birthday sweetheart!!...  i wish you all the best that life can give you.. always and forever!...

where's my mojo???

hello all..

well i'm back from my NY trip.. it was the trip from hell..  traveling 2 days with ones parents is not a good idea!.. dad wasn't feeling well and.. for a while there we thought that it would be a 2 day trip up.. 2 days there and 2 days home.. (lots and lots of driving for me.. )..  but we did manage to stay the week... just cut it short 1 day.. and now that we are home... dad is doing much better... but.. i do believe that will be the last time they drive up there..

i have nothing to show this time..  with all the drama up there i didn't stitch on a thing.. and i caught a cold up there and have been sick with that for the last week.. so my mojo has vanished.. and i want it back!...

the only thing i've worked on is stuff for the guild that i HAD to have done for last nites meeting..  so i made a little EPP wreath.. so i could teach them all EPP (English Paper Piecing)..  and.. since i'm doing a class this weekend for the workshop... i made a Christmas stocking.. (i'll show those pics in the next blog entry as i havent uploaded my pics to the puter yet)..   it is Christmas in July this month...  looks like the class is going to be very small.. as quite a few of our members are gone this month..

i did do just a bit on the "Chickens?!" cross stitch.. the border is now done and .. i'm doing the backstitching on it... i'm hoping to be able to finish that one this week... then i can get back to concentrating on my mermaids..

my mojo is kaput!.. and i so need it back... so if any of you see it... send it back home... i miss it!..
