Updates to show!

Good Saturday Morning Everyone!
Boy time has pass by fast, it's been almost 2 weeks since my last post.
I have not done anything exciting lately but I do have some updates to show.

I am still working on We Three Kings
as of  10/14/13
these are more of the true colors
as of 10/26/13
Lighting was not the greatest

While at the weekend retreat I worked on this next piece called June's Sweet Cake
I added the beads to stand and realizes that the gray and silver
part of the stand was one stitch off so I had to remove and
restitch the gray. Now I just have to chart my granddaughters
name  and stitch it  and this will be done.
The last piece that I worked on is a Freebie from Pinterest
called Witch
I used GAST Soot for this piece, got this much done and ran out of thread. I ordered more and I'm hoping the dye lots aren't too drastic. The top part is going to say Witch.

Well that's about it for now, It 's time to go get ready to go to work for a couple of hours and then its home to sit and stitch.

Have a great weekend everyone!
Happy Stitching

Back from Lake Shetek

Good Morning Everyone!
I have not read any blogs since last Wednesday so I have a lot of reading ahead of me! 
Last Wednesday I left for Lake Shetek for a stitching retreat, and got back home on Sunday about noon.
I didn't take very many pictures but my daughter did with her new camera.
But I did get a bunch of stitching done 
First up is We Three Kings
 Got a good start on the second King.

This was my finish for the weekend
Merry Christmas by Glory Bee - Nancy Boyarsky
Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament 2013

Started 10-09-2013
Finished 10-10-2013

The last piece that I stitched on was started last year for my Crazy January Challenge 2012.
June's Sweet Cake
Erica Michaels - Rainbow Gallery
32 ct cream Belfast Linen
Hi-lights, Splendor & Subtlety, & Mill Hill Beads
Started 1-13-12 (CJC 2012)
I am making a few changes on this piece. To start with there is suppose to be nine candles, I only have five because this piece will be for my granddaughters 5th birthday. And across the bottom is suppose to say How Many? but I will be putting she name there.

I also worked on a table runner. I got the blocks cut out and some of it sewed together. I did not get a picture of it yet but as soon as I complete it I will post about it.

Well its time to get back to the laundry and house cleaning. Then it to town to pick up some groceries.

Have a Great Week!
Happy Stitching
