Small finishes to show!

OMG!  It has been over a MONTH since I last posted!!!!  Where has time gone???  I used to be so good at posting every week and now I have become a slacker.  That is the only way to describe me a huge slacker!  I do have some cute finishes to show off and I stitched something that I NEVER thought I would say I stitched....



Here is my Puppy Love design...poor Minnie has a floating head...

Wintery Heirloom is looking good....this is the LAST huge tree I need to stitch and then it is smooth sailing after this!


Finished another page on Sistine Chapel....Only 331 pages to go!  If you look closely, you will see that I stitched a penis.  Yes, you read that correctly, I stitched a penis!  Never thought I would say that phrase but  I did!


Finished Kermit the Frog!  He is such a cutie!!!


Made some Tutu bags for my Halloween exchange.  I will post a tutorial if you want to see how I did it!


My local Cross stitch group picks out an ornament from the JCS halloween issue or the sept./Oct. ornament issue, and we stitch it, kit it up and exchange them.  Today, I came home with 5 new ornaments kitted up and just waiting for me to stitch...


Here is the back of mine.  I got really lazy this time and went to Hobby Lobby, found 2 pieces of wood that were already cut and used that to make my ornaments.  I don't cut straight lines so this was perfect for me!


Today I stitched Tigger!  He is so cute!!!

My Life

I am struggling this year with school, my depression, family issues and my weight.  I have quit working out and started pigging out to make myself feel better.  I have put on 5 lbs and decided that is enough.  I made the decision that I am no longer bringing work home with me.  I am starting a 5 day fat flush challenge to get my weightloss back under control.  This morning, I planned out my menu for the next five days, including all my snacks.  I am really trying to get my life under control.  Once the depression and stress starts to take over, it is really hard to get it under control.  I won't lie.

At least you don't have to outline the penis! That would be worse I'd think! Great progress and sorry I missed your Thirty-One event!

Your stitching looks great. Sorry to hear about you being down. I've been down lately too. I swear it's the time of year it seems. I hope you are back up and happy as ever soon girlie. LOL at the penis by the way.

Wonderful stitching! Kermit and Tigger looks great on the opalescent fabric. Sistine Chapel is getting bigger. LOL on the penis story. Sorry to hear you have been down lately.

Sorry things are stressful for you.

Your stitching looks great, though. You've done a lot in a month.

Amazing stitching Micky Mouse really stands out well on the fabric you've chosen and Sistine is looking fantastic.

Hello there!

I have been looking for the Puppy Love cross stitch and I can't find it, it is pretty popular. Is there a way that I could buy the pattern from you, so I can make one for my husband?

Hello Vickie,

I have been trying to find the Puppy love cross stitch and I can't find one. Is there a way that I can buy a copy of the pattern from you so I can make it for my husband for our anniversary?
