Good morning everyone. This is my TUSAL post. You should see my poor frog. He is overflowing and you can tell by the way he holds his hands he is ready to explode. I have stitched a great deal this past moon phase and he is FULL! He was very happy to be emptied today.
Along with my other stitches this past month I did this little stitch - Malcolm the Moose for my son who is the biggest Dale Earnhardt fan. I think I will make a cube of this one.
I stitched on my latest Twenty-Twelve RR. Elena has chosen the zodiac and since I am a Leo married to Leo I thought he would be a perfect match. I like how he turned out.
In my stash was this little piece - Twas the Night Before Christmas. Lots of special stitches in those trees. I love the silver house.
I received a lovely giveaway in the mail. Nancy from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe sent me these beautiful hand dyed threads. There is 20 yards on a skein - WOW. She has some wonderful charts and threads. Check them out when you can.
I received in the mail this wonderful chart from Sharon of It's Daffycat. She also included this sweet piece of fabric.
This is a travelling pattern. If you are interested, please leave a comment on this post and when I have stitched it I will draw a name and send it on.
NOTE: Stitched, name drawn - Mangogirl - ready for mailing to new home.
Life has been interesting here. We unpacked our house and then headed to spend a week with our handsome grandsons. While there I got laryngitis, a cold and a horrible cough.I still had it when we came back home.
That cough kept me awake at night for over two weeks. I was just miserable. As well, the doctor has doubled my blood pressure meds and so I am very tired and dragging my butt around. Thank goodness I can still stitch even though tired.
This past week has been spent renovating our master bathroom. We had professionals install the bathtub/shower unit and flooring. The rest has been done by my DH and I. We installed a new highboy tiolet, new vanity, new plumbing, new granite countertop, new taps, new lighting, new mirror, new wainscoting and all the trim. It is looking good. I will post some photos once I get the holes patched and ceiling and walls painted.
It is the May long weekend and Leo's brother and wife are here for a visit. Time to kick back and relax.
I hope your days are frog free. I had an infestation of them this past week while stitching on my Desert Mandala - oops forgot to take a photo - next time! Thankfully, they have hopped off.
