Another Small Finish

I was itching for a finish. So I took one of my small projects to work.  I started it Friday and ended up finishing the backstitching on Saturday morning.

April IHSW & WIPocalypse #4 Check-In

Well last weekend was International Hermit Stitch-In Weekend/IHSW, again. Just click here to join!

I'm late again on my Arpil IHSW, so I added my WIPocalypse #4 Check-in too.  If you are interested in WIPocalypse, just click here.

I had every intension of being at home in my comfy chair just stitching.  But it did not turn out that way!

Friday: I got a call saying that my son was in the ER because he was bit by a dog while at a friend's house.  I can honestly say hearing this made me skip a heartbeat or two.  But he is fine and enjoying all the attention.  I do feel awful because animal control took the dog and my son's friend is really missing her dog.  I hope everything turns out okay.

Saturday: My daughter asked if I would babysit my grand daughters because she had a funeral to attend.  Which turned into a sleepover,yay.   I had a wonderful time with the grand babies.  If I didn't mention it before I will be a grandma again....a grandson in June!!!  I really need to get my butt in gear.

Sunday: I can honestly say that I was pooped!  I cleaned up and did laundry.  The house is always alittle mess when the babies are over.

I did manage to get in a few stitches.  Here is my rose, I will be working on this for awhile.  I need to get this done and onto a box top before June.

This is the only WIP that I have stitched on since my last WIPocalypse Check-In.  So here is before / after pics.


Happy Stitching Everyone!

TUSAL #4 - Check In

Wow it is April already and another new moon....that means it's TUSAL time.  And I am late again, oh well......time to see every one's pretty ORTs jar and all the progress they have made.  If you are interested in Totally-Useless-Stitch-Long just click here.

 I have some trimmings of the skirt I made for my granddaughters in there and some orts from my rose project that I'm hoping to finish soon.

Well since it is time for IHSW - International Hermit & Stitch Weekend  I will be stitching and doing a little sewing.

Happy Stitching Everyone!
