Olympic Sprint Finished!

My Phoenix is done! 

And now what to do?  I have another piece I could "sprint" on...but I also just got the Lizzie Kate Mystery Halloween sampler in the mail.  Decisions, decisions....


I decided I will be sprinting on Sewing Jars by San Man Originals (see pic in previous post).  Let's see if I can finish it this week!

August WIPocalypse update

Well, it seems to be a hot humid start to August here in Michigan.  I am so happy I have central air.  :)  I've been working on Joan Elloitt's Phoenix as I watch the Olympics (pic is in my last post).  I'm still backstitching those big tail feathers, but it's getting there.

So, I have some happy dances this month.  First are a couple of things for a friend's baby.
I was supposed to see little Trinity this weekend, but I'm running a slight temp and have a sore throat.  So, no being around little ones for me!  So my mom will deliver the gifts for me.

And a little Halloween stitching.  One is Mill Hill and the other is by The Stitchworks.

And now for WIPS.  Keeping with the Halloween mood, I worked on my needlebook by Fern Ridge Collections.  Hmmm...I seem to be a little stuck on witch hats.

I also worked more on San Man's Sewing Jars.

And a little more on Joan Elliott's Butterfly Cushion.

And last but not least, Nora Corbett's Magnolia.

And speaking of Nora Corbett, I have my August Mirabilia up on the wall.  She's one of my favorites.

And now, I should get off the computer and back to the Phoenix.  :)
