Snowmans in Summer

Who doesn't love snowmen??!! It's silly hot out today and I'm happy to post the finish of my chilly friends. This was super fun to work up. I'm trying to decide what it should be assembled as still.I'm a loser and am missing my LNS stitching group tonight for two sessions in a row. I have a bike ride I'm organizing tomorrow and a friend I'm trying to help out. I can't quite seem to squeeze the time out of my days anymore. *sigh* But I'm planning to head downstairs to my stitching station and at least put in a little time on the macaws project. I did some on that this morning. It's going to be lovely! I can't wait to finish that one :-).

The Fair

My entries went down to the county fair yesterday. I entered the Autumnal Abstract Bag, Alchemical Symbols and Sunny Day Cat for this one. *fingers crossed*

I was able to wrap up a small that I started over the weekend while I was chillin in the parking lot before work this morning. I have a photo of it, but I need to get back to my computer before I can post it since I accidentally left my SD card in the computer. I made it for a friend and am trying to decide how to finish it. And I'm trying to decide if I want to show it to them tonight when I see them or if I want to wait until it's completely finished. Tough decisions!

Its not looking good for the La-D-Da Free-Bee I've been working on for a while. I'm just about to run out of thread. I think that I'll use up what I have left tonight and then try to figure out what the heck I'm going to do about that. I'm pretty sure I pulled that stuff from the discontinued bin. Either way I have lost the tag that was attached so I have no clue what manufaturer the cotton is, let alone what color. I suppose I could just grab another color and bull through acting like it's what I meant to do. *shakes head*

A Little Late

I completed the third page in the sampler book a little over a week ago. I've been a bit slow in getting around to posting it :-). There are letters in the sky above the castle, but they are white on white and so are a bit difficult to see in this photo.

I started on the letter D. We're going to head to Canada today, so I'm hoping to get some time in on that one in the car. Possibly I'll be able to finish it during the drive?

I've been doing a bit of work here and there on my traveling projects. Unfortunately a bit of life caught up with me over the last week, so I didn't get to use my lunchtimes to make progress on those.

I was able to make a big dent in the second Macaw last week. This is where I was at on the 26th of June. Since then I finished most of the macaw's head and some of the pink feathers that make up it's shoulder. Not awesome progress, but its something :-D.
