Yeah, I’ve been MIA for a bit. I have been on Facebook a bit, but in general I haven’t been doing much of anything.

Two starts and hopefully I’ll be back in the swing starting now.

HoHRH block 11

Mirabilia’s Bluebell which was a b-day present from the wonderful Annette!

Stitched on 28ct. Lugana SMF Treetops. This kit was a gift from Annette for my birthday yesterday (35th). So sweet of her. 😀 It’s been a really nice stitch so far and I think the flowers are the fussiest bit. There is a good bit of dress to stitch and the wings are 100% Krenik – but I think I can handle it.

Winter Rose is framed and was in my Great Aunt’s hands on Christmas.

$168.50. That includes $19 of shipping. OMFG – you can not beat it with a stick! I only wish I could see it in person. It went straight from Jill’s shop in UT to my Aunt in CT. Ah well, one of these years I’ll get to see it.  I think Mother’s Tree was framed for 4 years before I saw it in person.

    Jill did a beautiful job on Winter Rose. I know your aunt loves it.

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen such a special and meaningful stitched gift as Winter Rose, Missy Ann! Your aunt will treasure it always… Just beautiful!

    Winter Rose turned out so well. I hope you get a chance to visit it and your aunt soon.

    Oh, and thank your for the turkey advice. We actually were using a pre-stuffed bird that goes in the oven frozen (and is very little work). My main problem is that my oven is cold. I need to get a thermometer and adjust it. I’m still leaning towards take-out for next year, though. 🙂

    Belated happy birthday greetings for yesterday!

    Winter Rose looks wonderful all framed up. I bet your great aunt is thrilled with it!

    Nice progress on HoHRH!

    Gorgeous framing! May have to give Jill a try with my next big finish.

    Excellent start on Bluebell 🙂

    I LOVE what you stitched and had framed for your Aunt – it is just beautiful. Love your HOHRH – I am going to start that and ATS in the New Year. I think I am going to start ATS on New Year’s Day and HOHRH on New Year’s Eve. I cant wait to do both of them.
    Lots of Love

    Glad to see you’re back! 🙂 Love the stitching WIPs. You must be so happy with the way WR turned out. I’m sure your aunt will treasure it. Happy 2010!
