I'm not dead! :)

Did you think I was dead?
Cause I was even wondering myself. :)

Well it's been crazy, but work has finally become normal hours again. And I'm starting to get organized for December and all the fun that comes with that.
So there hasn't been a lot of stitching, but there has been some.

I did work on dragons and am getting close to a page finish, so will make the goal of the end of the year for the row. Pictures to come on that one in the next week or so.

Onto ones I do have pictures of. Here is Cheryl's Bouquet. I was hoping to have it finished by the end of the year. But I don't think that will happen. Though I am giving it way more attention.
To date:

I've also been playing around with beading bracelets and different things since taking the classes at retreat. Made a few more rings for friends and such. Made this bracelet the other day to see if I could get the knots to work, it's just cheap Walmart beads, but hey turned out not bad I think. Check it out:

That is sadly all the pics I have right now.
But things while still busy, are less crazy so I will be back to regular stitching time to some degree and of course regular updates! I have missed chatting with all my stitching buddies in the last few weeks. Forgive me, I'm back now.
Hope you are all doing well and stitching away!

And a Happy Turkey Day to all my American friends. :)

PS: I just noticed that I hit 200 followers!!! So watch out for a giveaway in December in celebration.

Ornament Finishes

I got a great surprise in the mail the other day. I had sent three ornaments off to Meari for her to finish for me as I am really bad at it. And I'm SOOOO pleased with the outcome. They are just awesome.
These are finishes from 2009. There is Moon Mirror, Smoke project & Coffee Cat.
I think they have turned out just amazing. (I will be adding trim to Moon Mirror just haven't gotten to it yet). Thank you, thank you, thank you to Meari for doing this for me!

I have been stitching a little tiny bit. Mostly this week I have been working.
However I did attend my guild night on Wednesday and learned how to do a turkey stitch! I'll show my sample next post after I have a chance to get a picture. (the picture above was borrowed from Meari with permission).

Hope you are all doing well. In about two more weeks I will be very happy as overtime at the office should be over and I can get back to a more structured routine.
Until next time happy stitching!
