I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

Out with the old!

Mirabilia's "Santa"
I'll warn you now this post has a bunch of pictures! I have decided to have a mini-Wipocolypse this month (am I spelling that right? I can only hope), and dig out all my smalls to finish. I found about ten, and finished 3 already this week while continuing to work on the above Santa. Luckily for me most of them had just a few stitches I needed to finish them, why did I ever put them away if I was so close to done with them? Probably because I am so easily distracted by something new to stitch....so here is my goals for this month....
Before
After
This one was Cricket Collection "Be Ye Thankful", the small acorn on the back of the chart. I only had the leaves to finish and the small flowers above the squirrels. And I successfully finished this one already, now to pack it away for Autumn.
Bent Creek "Eagle"
This is another Bent Creek, from the Land That I Love chart. All I had to do on this one was add the olive branch (well and he still needs an eyeball but that will take 2 seconds to stitch on) so I am counting this as a finish!
Bent Creek "Quaker Star"
Bent Creek "Quaker Star" Finally got the strand of WDW Navy I needed to finish, and stitched the eagle in the middle. I really like this one, and am excited to have it hung up for the 4th of July.

Glad Tidings..this one has been stalled for 2 Christmas' now. All I need to do is add the buttons and stitch the leaves. Though I think I am going to switch the leaves for something else, I want to do cardinals there, I just have to find the right size to fit.

This is Prairie Schooler of course. All I have to do on the top one is finish 4 little chicks wings, and the bottom one just needs filling in also. So close!

I don't think I ever posted this start on my blog. I was on a blogging hiatus when I stitched this one up. All it needs now is the cat tails under the M and some back-stitching and i'll have another project to be ready for display in the fall.

Two Lizzie Kate littles, I think the carrot is off of the May flip it, and obviously the bunny is from the April flip-it. All the bunny needs is his paws outlined, and the carrot just needs more dirt. 

 And yet another Bent Creek (gosh I stitch a lot of their stuff!) "Brown Dog" I am out of the brown I used to stitch him in, so I have to wait until it arrives in the mail to complete his cute little face. I also ordered "White Cat" to go along with this one, I think they will look cute sitting next to each other.

Tomorrow is my first day back at work (sniff sniff) wish me luck, or at least that I don't turn around and drive home before I make it in!
