Well my weekend did not go as planned. We got completely snowed in, as we kinda expected. I tried to get to my 12-hour stitch and couldn't even get my car five feet out of the parking lot... it look my B/F and two other guys 30 minutes just to push me the five feet back into my spot! It was crazy. If you want to see some pics of what it was like check out this photo gallery from our local paper.
So I did try to do the 12-hour from home. Not completely successful but did alright. Probably stitched about 7 hours over the day. And Evalina was awesome and did hers from her home in the Yukon so we went back and forth on emails all day which really helped.
But... onward to the finishes! The first finish of the day was the most important, the final Christmas ornament. I am borrowing my best friends sewing machine to get these all finished up this week. But here is the ornament stitched up without buttons:
Then I moved onto... Ducky!!! I can't tell you how happy I am to be rid of this beast. I am very happy with how it looks but cannot wait to put it in the hands of my friend to tell them to do with it as they please. Ritual burning might even be okay. (okay well maybe not but it really was a trial). I'm not sure why I hated it so much, it was quite easy... maybe just too much blue/yellow and just sections of it with no detail. (even though I don't mind working on Dragons...)
Alright here it is:
And a perspective shot:
And then finally on Sunday I decided that while I watched my Dallas Cowboys loose (sadly) that I would finish up my latest pirate. So here is Love Pirate:
I do wish I could have gotten to my LNS as I needed a few fabrics and the like. I don't see me getting there anytime soon now with the snow. but I'll just have to watch for the right day. (and I lost the 12-hour stitch amount for food and stuff which kinda sucks).
Alright, now I will be working on Dragons, want to get back to Castles and am anxiously awaiting the information for my HAED SAL that should be starting soon.
