Celestial Gathering Designed By Todd Trainer

I have gotten more stitching done over the weekend and the sun is coming along beautifully. Now if only there would be sun outside instead of snow ~sigh~ lol. I did some more stitching last night and didn't get to bed until 12:30. So there will be another update some time this week. Oh and here is the picture of what part of my yard looks like after the weekend.

Here is an update I have gotten a little bit more and since I am almost done with work I get a free weekend! Which means I be a stitchin like crazy over the weekend! WEEEEEEEEEE ~giggles~

It has been a rough 3 days this week. Wednesday is auction day since hubby and I work for ourselves hunting for treasures and reselling them. Then Thursday and Friday is cleaning and polishing some items, as well as researching and testing, then it is picture taking, picture editing, then posting on eBay. But I got an itty stitch in of Celestial Gathering there will probably be more either tomorrow or Sunday not sure yet lol here is what I have done. Hope everyone has a great weekend, Happy Stitching!!!!!!!!!!!!

Up after Two Shall Be As One is a Dimensions kit Celestial Gathering which is designed by Todd Trainer. Which I might start here in a few actually. This is a picture of what it will look like when it is finished can't wait!

And the Two Shall Become One

ALMOST DONE!!!! Just have to finish the back stitching and I think I am going to get me some beads since I am having problems with the french knots. But I am so glad to be almost finished then I can move on to another of my projects woohoo!

Ok this was supposed to be a Christmas present to my hubby but it didn't turn out to be that due to having such a busy holiday and stabbing my hand with a knife after New Years lol yes I know what a great way to start 2011 but hey I tend to keep things interesting lol.

Anyways I had started this project a while ago but I tend to put it a way for a few when I start getting massive headaches of course it doesn't help when I have to take out everything I have done and redo it which I will have to do of certain areas since I messed up on the quarter stitches (which mind you I have never done any of those stitches until now so I had no idea that those stitches did not have to go all the same way) but that section will have to wait until I have more thread which I will have to go and buy when I get a chance.

But here so far is the progress I have done the bottom half is what I will have to take out and redo yet again I swear I will get this down I will learn the magic to quarter stitches lol

Janlynn Designs For The Needle: And The Two Shall Become One Kit# 766-0001-W

Yesterday evening I decided to start a new project "And The Two Shall Become One" by Janlynn Designs For The Needle. I am making this as a gift for my husband and myself for Christmas. It has been a rough start when starting it due to the quarter stitch since I have never done one before but I am slowly getting the hang of it. Same whay I have never done a french knot so that will be interesting lol. As soon as I have pictures I will post them to the blog. :)

Been an interesting week

To say the least anyways. I decided to take a break and relax my eyes from stitching my WIP and decided to work on a latch hook design which I found at a community sale a few weeks ago. Though that project is going slowly then I would like it to it can't be helped due to the plate full of things that I have been doing. Since the beginning of the month my DH and I have been working on getting our business up and running which is a slow process but well worth it in the end when it is finally in full swing. While we have been working on that we have also been going to help the family over the weekend. Now I know the weekend is a time to rest and relax and re-energize for the up coming week but we have no idea what that means lol if we don't keep moving we feel like we had gotten nothing accomplished and that the day ahs been wasted.. So hopefully by the time I post a new blog I will have 1 hopefully both projects finished. :)

How Do You Keep Your Floss Organized?

DMC DMC DMC DMC DMC floss of my obsession how I love thee......lol. Sounded like a good opening to me what do y'all think? As a rule I work with nothing but DMC floss if at all possible but occasional I will use what comes in the kit due to the fact that I just don't want the headache of having to figure out what number goes with that color lol. Now I know everyone has tons and tons of boxes, cases, bags, and what nots to keep their floss in. Of course as I get more floss I will end up doing the same thing but for what little I have I just use the DMC cases with the floss wrapped on plastic bobbins, now mind you at the moment I have just 2 cases lol I am so slacking, but getting the floss is the pain when I have to budget everything so that all bills and the essentials are paid so that we don't go without something that we need.
