Shop, Stitching, TUSAL,& new start

Hi Everyone! Well I managed to put in about 5 hours of stitching yesterday. And I got up this morning and started stitching again, but not it didn't last long because I had to help sort cattle and haul them to the sale barn to be sold tomorrow. So I will be sitting at a stinky sale barn most of Monday watching cattle sale. These are the feeders that I bottle fed last fall.

Yesterday morning we laid some more concrete in our new shop, we had about 10 of our friends show up to help. What great friends we have.

We have to lay one more pad of concrete next Saturday and the shop floor will be complete. My husband is wishing it was all done but we have a long ways yet before the shop is completely finished.

I am still working on Blooming with Inspiration, this one is going to take awhile and I am Itching to work on something else for a while. So I decided to start on a Christmas ornament for the month of May, beings I don't have but a week left in the month to get it done. I have decided to start on Baked Goods by Little House Needleworks. So many of you out there have already done this one and I have had it kitted up for quite awhile so now is the time.
As of 4/30/12
As of 5/20/12

And I also finished up Forever in my Heart and framed it simply in a black frame.

This young man left this earth way too early in life. I made this for his mother who misses her son deeply, and is missed by all his friends.

And my final bit of news of course is TUSAL time.
Mostly from Blooming with Inspiration

I hope everyone has had a super weekend
Happy Stitching

Lovely projects Denise. I'm glad the mother has something to remember her son by from someone else who cares. It's nice to see. Stitchers, in general, are so generous!! Hope you're doing well. And grats on the progress. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you set your mind to it. And lastly, your ORTs are lovely too. Keep up the good work. (And good luck finishing your ornie in time.)
