A finish, A WIP, and a new start




Hi all,
well, I waited almost a week before updating. A lot has happened since my last update.
Our son that is in the Army has now deployed. Mom has had some hard moments, but overall is doing ok.
I got a call on Wed., asking if we would be interested in keeping the boys for an extended weekend. I really had to think hard about this one! NOT! I told her immediately to bring them on!!!! So, Thurs. evening, the boys arrived!
Since their arrival, I have finished a WIP that I started last Valentine's Day. All I had done was one X & the heart. I have since finished it. I hope to 'finish' it into a pinkeep today.
I have worked on my B.Potter WIP this week too. (most of it before the boys got here) I am way behind on it, but I keep plugging away. I am enjoying every X of it!!!
Then, last night, after getting all 3 babies down for the night, I started a new project.
We shall see how much gets done on it this week.
Thank you to all who visit my blog & for all the great comments!
Have a wonderful week!

Wonderful stitching Shari! I really love the blue and brown combo of BP.

Hope you're having lots of fun with the little ones!!!

Love the X's and O's piece and your wips are looking good. Have fun with the boys and I totally agree with you, I would have done the same thing (stayed home with them). Oh remember to pick an ornament for the ILCS group and you can change the front page after you pick.

What a cute finish. Love your Beatrix Potter WIP. My thoughts are with you as your son is deployed. I pray that God will keep him safe. Sometimes I think it is tougher on those at home. Hugs

Your BP colors are perfect, Shari! Can't wait to watch your progress on it.

I think we are both starting the same piece (LHN Fa La La???)--too funny!

My thoughts are with you and your whole family, Shari. Your son is a very brave young man...

Bp is looking lovely, every little 'x' is nearer a finish.

Nice valentine finish, it'll make a lovely pinkeep

Your WIPs look great, Shari. Congrats on your finish. What's the designer/design? I really think it's cute.

Your stitching looks great. I just finish stitching Fa La La. It was fun and easy to stitch. A very good start!

Looking great! I have that Erica Michael's one started from last year that isn't finished! You will love the LHN one! B. Potter is really looking pretty! Nice job!
