Been lax again about updating this blog......don't really have any excuses to give you this time.  Just been enjoying myself with my stitching and anxiously awaiting the phone call from DD announcing that the baby is on his way!  No Grandson yet....but should be soon!

In the meantime,  I have put the finishing touches onto his blanket.   Got the backing sewn on.   Decided to go with a soft flannel.   Not the best sewing job in the world, but it is on!

Also worked on the PR Mystery "Into the Deep" SAL Part 3.   Can't decide if I like the fishies or the seahorses more.   They are both soooooo cute!   I also have part was released really early.  Wasn't supposed to be released until the 1st of August.  So I think I will save that to do a bit later.   I'm still holding off on all the beads for now, so it looks a bit strange, but I'm loving how it is turning out so far!

Received a lovely surprise in the mail the other day!  Monique from Tiny Treasures 2 sent me a lovely scissor case.   I wasn't expecting a second one!  I kind of feel guilty for not stitching her one now (even though we were only supposed to stitch) one for the exchange.  I'll have to think of something to thank her. 

And I also spent a LOVELY amount of time with my Dance of the Graces.   It is soooooo nice to be stitching on this lovely piece once again!  And I'm making very good head way too!

Well.....That's it for now folks!  Have a wonderful day!  Until the next time....

Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe 4th of July!  We had family over for a BBQ and other than that.....was just a quiet day! 

Got my 2012 PR Mystery "FATUM" back from the framers.  She turned out really lovely!  And she is already on her way to her new home.   Should be there by the end of this week!

Also had Halloween Rules by Lizzie Kate how this turned out as well.   Can't wait for Halloween to put it out! 

The scissor case and pincushion that I made for the Tiny Treasures Exchange has been received.  Sounds like Amanda likes it.  The sewing on it is a bit wonky though as I'm not very good with a sewing machine.   I adapted a portion of the Ink Circles Circ de Coers for the case and pincushions.

I also managed to get another page (actually 2 pages) done on Dance of the Graces.   However, this picture only shows one of the two I've been lazy about coming upstairs to get the camera to take a more up to date picture!   And now the lighting is all wrong to take one tonight.  Maybe tomorrow. :)

Well.....that's it for now folks!   Have a Great Evening and Happy Stitching!
