Ornament finish

This was done mostly in Dr's offices and the hospital waiting on hubby. I carried this in my purse and did maybe one length at a time. Then one day I went to work on it and could not find the thread. So I put it up. Then when I was switching the computer I found it. So I finished this up. Only took about an hour. Now the glue is drying on the back and I will cover it with felt or foam to make it look better.
Have a great day!

My Plastic Canvas finishes

I finished 2 plastic canvas sets this week. A coaster set and a tissue box cover. The pattern is from AdorABLEcrafts

Also have been working on Joan's Challenge I put it on a piece of 14ct aida that I stole out of a garage sale kit that I don't know if I will ever get done. Well it didnot come out square. The count is correct so that means the materiel is not square. Looks alright just is rectangle. Now I have to get it finished Was thinking about making it into a small pillow. Got to find some material for back and get it done today.

We just had rain with hail. Large pea size. Don't know where that came from. Was not even supposed to rain today. Although it is solid cloud cover.

Got to go as the ferrets want out to play for awhile.

My first biscournu

Finally heard that my partner in Canada received the package that I sent her. So now I can post a picture.

It was from the June 2008 Issue of The Gift of Stitching Magazine. Link is on my sidebar. The only thing I changed was I did not add the ribbon and beads shown in the mag. And I personalized the back.

Got to go as I have much to do. Have a great day!

Computer update

My computer crashed. Don't know exactly what went wrong. It had been doing the spontanious reboot for sometime. Friday morning hubby was playing his game and it rebooted. Windows didn't load correct so he just shut it down and left it. When I tried to turn it back on it would not do anything. One light came on and that was on my cd writer. Everything else nothing. Anyway I have GREAT kids. Son said I could use his desktop as no one was using it (One year newer) . They are both using laptops. So daughter picked it up from him. Brought it over with her friend who is her computor guru. He checked mine out. Wouldn't do a thing. Salvaged my hard drive and put it into this tower slaved to the one already here. Technically I lost nothing except for favorites and my address book on Outlook express. Told the kids if this one works for about another year then I can buy a new one. Got to go. Back to reloading software. Have a great day.
