April 6 Full Moon

So, I know it's been several days since the full moon.  I got sick over Easter (actually fainted in church!)  I spent a day in the hospital.  Everything is OK now.  I was severely dehydrated and fighting a bladder infection.  Anyway, I've spent most of the month getting ready for our Band Sampler RR.  I still want to get my boy's baby sampler done so I need to get back to it!  Here's my Band Sampler so far...

I've stitched much more and will post some more pictures soon.  I didn't realize that I stitched Ecclesiastes wrong so I will be restitching that!

March 8 Full Moon

Here's what I've been working on this month:

This is my youngest son's birth sampler.  (He'll be 8 in May!)  I've finished the other siblings' samplers and need to finish this one before his birthday!

Here's my daughter Lauren and son Alex out with the Moon:

They are less than amused with me!

Feb 7 Full Moon

Here's my Feb Full Moon Progress:

Spring Angel

Angel of Love

Lots of parking on this one!  I did all the left part of her robe this past weekend.  I've decided to not add any more beads until I get the outer robe complete.  That's motivation!  :)

Spring Angel

Here is my Spring Angel as she looked when she returned from the Sept 2010 RR:
So, I've made some progress on my Spring Angel.  Here's after two movies with DH:
She has hair!  After several years, I have now completed her face and have started  on her violin (mandolin).  YEAH!  I'll post pics of her soon.

Jan 2012 Mira Ready to Go!

So after countless hours of stitching, I'm finally ready to send off my MIRA project.  (I won't see her for almost an entire year!).  Here's how she looks before she hops in the mail:

And a closeup:

My theme is Roses.  I chose to stitch Rose Arbour.  So all the Ladies have something to do with roses (or flowers).  When it comes back, I will have (in addition to Rose Arbour) Rose of Sharon, Damask Roses, Rose Celebration, Garden Beauty, Blossom Harvest, Lady of the Mist and Sabrina stitched in the diamonds.  In  the triangle borders, I've asked each lady in our group to stitch a rose or bouquet in the triangles on the side or bottom as I have done and to also stitch their initials somewhere in the flower as well.  I look forward to seeing the progress on it and especially getting it back in December!

New Page

So I'm still getting the hang of blogging.  I found where to add pages!  Yeah me!  So here's where I'll be posting my full moon pictures during the WIPocalypse.  I'm so proud of myself!
