Recent finishes and current WIP.
First up I have 2 bathtup scenes that I titled RELAX and LEISURE. 
They are from Crossed Eyed Cricket Bed & Bath I & II.
These are birthday presents for my sister. She loves the clawfooted tubs!

 And to celebrate the fourth of July I am stitching July Cottage by Country Cottage Needleworks. Every year I stitch something red, white, and blue for the 4th of July and this is what I have chosen for this year. Something small since I stitched the huge flag last year and it took 7 months for that one. This one will be done in just a few short days.
 And to celebrate my birthday on July 2nd, here is a cupcake for all to share!
Boy how time flies!
I can't believe it's been almost 6 months since I last updated my blog, but then again, I can. I have a virus in my computer that doesn't allow me to access my blog most of the time. I can't updated it. I also can't get on google or yahoo to search anything. Money has been tight and therefore the computer has taken a back seat when it comes to how the money gets spent. At the beginning of June my family moved into an apartment and so this month has been especially slow in the finance department. We are on borrowed pennies to make it til the end of the month. Nervous about getting utility bills for our first month especially since the temps have been in the 100's and we are enjoying the AC albeit very cautiously.
Now that I have been able to get back on my blog, I will try to get some pictures posted. Next week is my birthday and I have stitched a cupcake to share with everyone. It's my 50th birthday and I don't want to celebrate quietly.
I have also started stitching the Indian from the previous post, for the 2nd time. It took me a while to find another piece of fabric close to the original solo piece from Silkweaver. The bad thing is that this one has shrunk during the dying process so it'll be slightly smaller. I'm aggrivated working on tiny stitches but am pushing thru that bit. I definitely need to use readers for this one. It's still a great piece to stitch.
Until later!
