Elfland Page Finish, Cheryl's Bouquet & Pillow Pets

I actually got some stitching in this weekend!
After our crazy busy weekend last week we decided to take it a bit easy. Which means, stitching!

I worked on Cherly's Bouquet in the SAL weekend, she is coming along and should be in line for a finish this year if I put a few extra hours into her:

I also got a page finish on Elfland!! Even though the new SAL SK has started I still want to get Elfland finished. One more page to go on her.

I picked up my travel light at my LNS from Daylight. I am a bit disappointed that it doesn't have a cover over the bulb, as the bulbs are very expensive and I worry that I may hit it with my scroll rods. But we will see. It looks like there is a new one on their site that twists and has a cover (for the same price!) but I am not sure if it is available yet. But anyways doesn't matter as this is the one I have. It's to take to 12 hours that away from home and retreat in September!

And finally we got the cutest pillows ever at the Stampede (they have a vendor area that is always fun to walk through). These are called Pillow Pets and I gotta tell you it is the softest coziest little pillow I've ever had! They fold in to be a larger pillow:
Or they fold out to be flatter:
The turtle is mine (his grumpy face reminded me of my Grandpa so had to have him) and the penguin is the B/F's. They are just awesome! it's like being a five year old again in the comfort of your own home. and the quality is just unbelievable.
My turtle works great in place of my traditional pillow (when he is folded out) to hold my stitching on my lap.

I know I am very behind on posting comments to people's blogs. I am sooo sorry. I will try and catch up again. There are just too many great blogs out there!

I had an influx of followers this week, up to 149! I promised a giveaway at 140, so I will do one for sure in the next week. I just didn't have a chance to get it together in time for today. But I promise later this week you'll see one. And who knows maybe we will be celebrating 150 by then! :)

Thanks for all your comments and for following! :)

Wonderful stitching and congrats on reaching a magical number in followers. I am up to seven followers! The first time I checked my blog and saw that I had followers, I ran screaming to my husband, shouting,"I have followers!" lol He thought that I had lost my mind!

Those pillows are adorable. I like the penguin. :) I've seen something like them advertised on TV. Your stitching looks great. Maybe you could return the light and get the other one?

Congratulations on the large number of followers. I was happy to hit 20. :) I think my problem is that I don't comment on other blogs every much. I'm too shy.

I love those pillows! And Bouquet for Cheryl is looking great.

Great stitching. Those pillow pets are adorable. I got the ladybug one last year for my 3 yr old niece and she sleeps with him every night. I want one for myself...they are so soft!
