Bad Doggy!

I've read about this happening to a couple of other bloggers, but I didn't think it could ever happen to me. In a tired stupor last night, I just left my stitching on the couch and went to bed. When I woke this morning, I found my dog curled up on the couch sleeping, with a bit of linen sticking out from underneath her. Shooing her off the couch, I found Mary with a million tiny wrinkles, and some hair, UGH!! It just so happens that I took my iron over to my Mom's the other day to iron out some fabric for table cloths, so I don't have it, to try to fix this. I will pick it up at Mom's later and start ironing.

Here is a small update on my Needlemania 2, part 5. It's been a while since I worked on this one and I'm about half way through, so I can't give up now.
Lastly, is another small update on my Little House Needleworks Ornament of the Month 3, He's a Flake. I gave up on this one a week ago and need to pick it up and just finish it. It is so small, it shouldn't take long.

TUSAL and a New Start

I've started the third ornament in the Little House Needleworks Ornament of the Month series. This one is going to stitch up so quickly. The pic is quite dark, but the fabric is a smokey blue and I've used DMC 520 in place of the recommended green. I think it still looks nice though. I hope to have this one stitched up in a couple of days. Update later.

Here is my first posting for the TUSAL, located in my sidebar. Pic is kind of blurry. My camera is not doing what I want it to tonight. I signed up for this SAL a couple of months ago, so these are my orts so far. The glass is an 8 oz. wine glass, not too big.
Well, I'm off to give my little one a bath and perhaps a little more stitching tonight.
Happy Stitching,

Moving Right Along

Here's another update on my Mary Wigham Sampler. I am so pleased to have so much time to devote to stitching. The weather has also required us to stay inside more, so I don't feel too guilty about stitching so much. I have put the LHN ornament on hold for a little while till I get tired of Mary. Hope to update again soon.
Happy Stitching,

Mary Wigham Update

Haven't been stitching much of late, but what I have done is on my Mary Wigham Sampler. I was hoping to get this piece done fairly fast. We'll see what I can get done in the next 6 weeks. After that, with the new baby and the 20 month old running around, I don't see me stitching very much.
Happy Stitching,

He's a Flake

It's been sooo long since I've been to Bloggerland. I have been MIA for over 2 months. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things. I'm about to pick up the third ornament of Little House Needlworks Ornament of the month, but I'm having a dilemma, hopefully you can help. I have two pieces of fabric to choose from. A light blue gray, and an dyed piece of linen called Thyme. It is a gray green color. Which do you think I should use? Also, I don't have the required threads for the tree, "Spinach", I would like to use a DMC thread, does anyone have any suggestions as to which green I could use?
Thanks for your help, and Happy Stitching,
