A quick update

Well things continue to be busy and out of control for myself and my b/f. While we are doing great things... there seems to be alot of stress as well. It's very stressful at my office right now and I just can't seem to count down the days to my holidays (next saturday they start!) fast enough! During my holidays I may be able to get some good stitching time in so I just can't wait.

B/F and I did more hiking, enjoyed the Calgary Stampede, and tragically watched someone hit a deer this past weekend. The deer did not survive but the people in the car did.
So it's been fairly busy and all over the place.

I did, sadly, have to drop out of my Christmas exchange (we didn't have assigned partners so that it was flexible) with my ILCS Yahoo group. Sad, but I just don't think I can take anymore stress right now and I wasn't sure I'd make the deadline. but I will still finish the ornament and either keep it, or RAK it or something.

At any rate I have a few WIP pictures for you this week...

Judgement Dragons... I am still trying to put in one full night a week on this project. It's going soooo slowly. But here is more progress. I'd love to have Page 3 done by the end of July but that is doubtful. So here's hoping for August.


Can you believe I am still working on this pirate?
I can't... it's progressing though.


And here is the progress on my ornament. I will finish this one up shortly so that I at least have a finish on the books! seems like it's been forever since I had one.


As always thanks so much for visiting. I am trying to get around to everyone's blogs again. I should be able to keep up for another week or so until I leave for holidays.

Hope things improve for you soon. It's shame how life gets in the way of stitching! Too bad you had to drop out of the exchange, I really like that little tree.

Hope you holiday comes quickly so you can relax. Don't fret about the ornament, just finish it and hang on to it. We'll be doing another ornament exchange before Christmas and you'll be ahead of the game with yours already finished.

Nice progress on your WIP's, love watching them grow.
