Wow, it's been a while since I've posted...

It's been over a month since I've posted...shame on me. Life has been busy as usual. Work is always busy. And rehearsals continue and I've had a few concerts in the last few months.

I have been stitching some, not as much as I would have liked. Here are some photos of some recent finishes.

First, here's a Christmas Tree ornament (first ornament stitched for 2008). This was from a class at my LNS. The design is by my LNS owner. The tree is made up of various rows of specialty stitches.

Next are the squares I stitched for Fair and Square round 5. It's Valerie Pfeiffer's "Christmas Chick". The backstitched cardinals on my signature square are from a Jeanette Crews Designs book titled "Winged Things".

Next is Bent Creek "March Blows" Snapper. This is square I stitched for the "Society of Friends" Round Robin I'm in.

And, finally, a couple of pictures from my trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this past weekend. The trip was for a stitching retreat my LNS owner does each March. There's a shot from the balcony of the room I was in, and another shot from outside the conference room area:

I need to take pictures of the stitching projects from the stitching retreat, 1 project is done and the other 2 are in progress.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far.
