This is the Wordle I made from this blog. I've been doing them for all my blogs - it's kind of fun!

Unicorn WIP

Thursday, May 14, 2009

I decided to finish up some things I've been working on for a long time before I start a new project. I started this Unicorn picture many, many years ago. It's been so long I can't even remember when! Anyway I've been working on it on and off this week and am pretty close to finishing. Many things I've started and abandoned I find I don't like anymore but I still like this one. I was considering using it as birth sampler for one of my nieces but I think with Unicorn written so many times it might distract from the birth information. I don't know - I'll have to think a little more. Anyway I'm very pleased to be so close to finishing! Now do I have to finish something else after this or can I start something new? I think I should get to start something new!

I finally finished Jasper. The reason I'm calling this picture Jasper is because I think he looks like my nephew. My nephew Jasper the cat, that is, not the human one! You can see the real Jasper in the 2nd picture. He looks a little sulky but it's because he is shy and I was housesitting with him & I think he missed his Mom & Dad. He's actually a very sweet little cat and (don't tell the others) but kind of my favorite cat nephew.

The picture I stitched is supposed to be a British Shorthair cat so I've decided that Jasper is part British Shorthair. Now that he's finished I can go onto May BJP and find something else to stitch!

Beaded Rings

Sunday, May 3, 2009

We are having a party at the end of June for my daughter's 33rd birthday & we are making assorted things as kind of party favors. I found the pattern for these beaded rings in Getting Started with Seed Beads by Dustin Wedekind. I've made 21 so far (probably more than I need) and I'm not sure I can stop - making them is quite addictive! Hopefully my nieces will find them as cute as I do!
