Witchy Poo

Last few days have been hectic for me and didn't have time for a lot of blogging..
but I did sneak in some stitching...:)

Had the family gather around for late lunch/early dinner today (Sat 10-18) and I had to cook!
I do not really cook often..my dh is the cook here...and oh boy, he is good..
so cooking really took some real thought on my part....lol...thus lots of prep time..oh not the food...just the mental part for me...lol.

I stitched for 5 hrs total last night (Friday 10-17) then my tired old eyes gave up...
You would think I would have made more progress but not only am I slow anyway but the darn frog kept hopping around...ribit ribit..all over..
Lucky me (sarcastically said by the way)..I was working with black floss and had to be extra careful that those nasty floss balls were taken off... *sigh* what one misstep can do! or is that miscount?
Anyway here is my after shot...she really looks like a witch now...lol
she is with Bear my Halloween Teddy bear from my daughter.. he insisted on being included..probably thinks Witchy Poo is his mom...lol

Well I had fun knowing everyone was stitching at the SAT (stitch-a-thon).. it was like having my friends all around me cheering each other on..

Tell me how I'm doing...suggestions and comments are appreciated..
if I can figure out how to work the links (technically challenging) I'd be happy.

Well here is "What is it and by now you can tell it is not the cookie monster gonzo...

It is a WITCH...lol... I am making the sampler from a stitch magazine...it will be my SAT (Stitch a thon) for friday...on Let's stitch..
I will add it to my slide show of WIP's.

I am having so much fun with it...lots of color..

Making Progress

Well this week I made some progress on the "Earthdancer" design and actually added quite a bit of the dress and made it all the way down to one foot...If you know the design you know that there is a lot of the color "ecru" and it is quite boring but I stuck with it and am happy with the results...I am taking a picture of it and will add it to the slide show and you will see what I mean...
"Sleeping Beauty" has taken a back burner for now and "What is it?" has also gotten some stitching in...you can actually see the design! yeah it's not Cookie Monster or Gonzo anymore..I will be stitching on this one for Stitch-a-long I joined with a whole bunch of nice ladies..at "http://letsstitch.blogspot.com" I have been having a blast there....
These are the only ones I will work on for now..well that's what I say but there are so many possibilities and so many wips...lol.. (*Nana whistling and watching husband rolling his eyes in disbelief"*)
I am really trying to stick to it...honest...lol

Well I am off to take some pictures..and stitching...
Will keep you informed of my progress.

Oh, by the way I learned how to insert my signature in my favorite color...well I like a darker green but beggars can't be choosers.. cool huh? I really am loving this blogging stuff...why I resisted so long beats me.
