"Delicate Beauties" Progress

This is my progress update pic of my "Delicate Beauties" project. I am really enjoying working on this design. I've found a LOT of other Paula Vaughn designs that are definitely going to be added to my "must do" pile!! This picture will look really nice hanging in my study when I FINALLY get it finished... :)
Have a wonderful week-end!

First Finish of "06!

I finished our family bellpull!! I don't know why the pic turned out so funky - the fabric and the colors are really pretty in"real" life. I'm looking forward to sewing this up and hanging it in our rotunda. It's so hard to know what to fit on "round" walls, but I think this will be a nice "welcome" by our front door.

We went to see the "Golden Dragon" acrobats from China today. What a treat that was! Our son has been jumping and bouncing all around the house since the show - hmmm....maybe he has a future as an acrobat? I just hope he finds someplace else to "practice" ! :)

Thanks for looking and Happy Wednesday!

My first blog pic!!!!

I have a progress pic to share - whoo-hoo!! This is a Lori Birmingham design that I'll be finishing as a bellpull. I love the colors! I'm using 28-ct "Forget Me Not" blue - my favorite fabby!!
This is stitching up fairly quickly - then I can MOVE ON!!! BTW, it's not really as "crooked" as it looks in the pic! :) oh, and it will also eventually say "The Griffin Family" not just "The Griffin"!!! ;)
Speaking of...moving on - I got more "stash" today! I picked up "Romantic Stitcher". I love this piece - she'll look lovely when she's hanging in my to get her from point A - (fabric, threads, beads and pattern in a bag) to Point B - (hanging in her spot of honor!)
The "planning" stage is almost as fun as the "process" and "finishing"!!!
I guess I'll have to add her to my ever-growing "must stitch in '06" pile! I think that's my mantra this year - - "must stitch in '06, must stitch in '06........"

Happy Friday, Folks!!!!
