Jayne's Attic RR

Hi there, I have not fallen off of the face of the earth, I promise :D Life got quite busy, and I have been lacking in the blogging department!

Last Thursday was another big church meeting/dinner/program I had to put on. About 50 people showed up, and it turned out so nice! I am relieved it’s over, but had a wonderful time putting it together. Now, the next one isn’t until July, so I can relax for a few months.

About 90% of the stitching I am doing is for exchanges/gifts etc. So I can’t hardly show anything of what I am working on :( That is another reason for lack of blogging. But, I do have a few things I can show now.

I finished my first part of the Jayne’s Attic RR. This is the Spring Snapperville. She has it divided up into 5 parts, I like her idea a lot. I stitched the Spring Cottage for this RR. She had all hand dyed threads for it, and it looks so nice. My stitching is not a good as hers is, I can’t believe how perfect hers looks! :O I have a lot to learn still I see. But, I think it turned out nice. I really enjoyed stitching this one. I’ll be mailing this off to Iceland this week.

I worked on my Mermaids for a bit, and did some beading, so here’s the progress on them. I am slogging through it, I won’t give up! :D

I have lots to do, I still have to stitch an ornament, and the March monthly snapper. I have started the Cannon Beach chart as well. Not much on it yet though. I had bought some blue/sky looking fabric from Carol a few months back that goes perfectly with it. I can’t wait to get more done on it.

Spring has arrived! Here are some pictures of the kids and I last night :D

Wondered where you'd gone to?! Glad you're back! Your picture and the ones of your kids are all sweet!
The Spring Snapperland RR looks fab! What's wrong with your stitching?! Looks fine to me :)
And your mermaid....well, she is just scrumptious!

Hi Heather! Is that really you??? Great to hear from you - your WIPS are gorgeous - love that daffodil! Still have snow on the ground here, so yours was awesome to see!

Barbara said...

What great pictures of you and your kids!! :) Spring is great, isn't it?!

Your current projects are great - what's this nonsense about your stitching not being as good as someone else's? Yours looks GREAT!!

Your kids are so sweet. Cute pics. I love spring snapperland. That is the only one of them I have finished so far and it was so fun to stitch. It looks great. As does mermaids. Ann.
