Where Have I Been???

Good question! Sometimes things just fall by the wayside. This blog turned out to be one of those things. Then I found Pinterest and decided to pin some of my stitchery. Upon checking this blog, not only did I find that I had frightfully neglected it, but that there are way more photos of animals than stitching. So. In a whole-hearted attempt to rectify that, I'm posting some stitchery photos starting with the set of pillowcases below that I did as a Christmas present for a good friend and her new Prince Charmer. Enjoy!

Oh, Dear!

 These photos were taken just a short way from my mother's
 house in Oldsmar, Florida. I had originally thought that it might be the Florida Key Deer, but they apparently don't live this far north. Whatever it is, it's always nice to see them roaming around in such a highly populated area.

Catch-Up Time...Stitching Update

(Super framing job by The Crafty Framer in Largo, FL, by the way!)
I can finally post a couple of photos of the surprise cross stitch project. This is "Nora (Corbett)'s Letter S" which I did for my friend Susan's birthday. I was very surprised at how easy it turned out to be. There weren't nearly as many quarter 'x'es as I expected, which was nice and very little backstitching, also a good thing. The metallic thread was less of a problem than I expected. And the beads were really no problem at all. I've already started working on her "P" and plan to do the "D" and "B" next, all for birthday/Christmas gifts. Maybe even this year!

White Bird Strolling

This guy certainly isn't minding the rain. And neither am I. An excellent excuse to stay in all day, stitch, and watch old Bob Hope movies on TCM
