Well, Finally...

I have the house cleaned and something cooking for the company arriving this afternoon.I can finally catch my breath and relax a little.

I've had these two pieces stitched since 2009. Maryse did a Pin Keep SAL, and I finally got around to the finishing. They are March and April,  I put March on a box.  




Hohla designed this biscornu in August. I started it  then and got behind with everything that went on, so I have finally finished it. It is call Biscornu Butterflies. I used DMC variations #4090 and Ozark Sampler thread Cancun Sunset. I added seed beads and crystals also. Not my usual colors but thought it turned out nice. I really the the designs she comes up with.She is very talented.
 
  Well time to get some coffee and relax, maybe get a stitch or two in.

Why.....

do we spend hours or even days scrubbing and cleaning the house when we have friends and family coming to visit? By the time you finish cleaning you're so tired, you just want to have some quite time.  Then after they arrive in a matter of 10 minutes or so things are in chaos once again. And after they leave you spend hours and days cleaning up again. Sometimes I think it would be better to just leave it til after everyone goes home.  
 Anyway, that's what I'm doing this week and grocery shopping for family that is coming this week end.
 I would rather be in my chair stitching, seems I haven't got many stitches in so far this week.

Well, I guess I better get back to it, I have a few more floors to clean. Til later

TU SAL & A Biscornu

Well, it's been awhile since I've posted much. My husband had to go out of town for work so I decided to go with him, and then we were back a few days and got a call with a death in the family so we had to leave again. Now hopefully everything is getting back to normal. I didn't get any stitching done while I was away and I totally for got about the TU SAL. So here is my post for Sept.

I did this biscornu by Pine Glen Designs . It is called Garden Glory. I like the colors used, reminds me of spring. 

I'm doing a humbug exchange with the Stitchin Fingers group. This is the first humbug  I have done so I hope my partner likes it.I can't post a pic yet since I haven't sent it off yet. I will as soon as I can. 
I guess I'll try to get some more stitching done.
