Dolly Mama's

I received an e-mail this morning from about their Dolly Mama contest. Apparently Joey, the creator of Dolly Mama, has writer's block, who can blame her after the 50 or more that she's created. So here are the details of the contest, I know there are many of you out there that are very creative with sayings, so here's your chance to enter and maybe win the grand prize of $1,000.00, just imagine all the cross stitch you could buy ! Go here to enter and good luck !

Ducks and a Crane

It may be Fall but we are having some exceptionally good weather. The ducks were having so much fun, I took a little video of them.

All Summer I have been trying to get a picture of this Crane. I would either forget to put the zoom on or not focus get a headless bird. So I'm rather pleased with this one.

Here's 2 more today !

Complimentary designs from Timber Creek Needleworks They were both stitched on 28ct. white evenweave with suggested DMC.

I goofed a little with the backing on this one, should have stitched the year diagonally. Oh well, and it's just the photo showing it larger than the front :). I forgot to add the ribbon as I was stitching, so it just may end up in my basket as a little pillow instead of a fob.

My initials on the back are a little off centre, but does it really matter? I think not.

PS: I just noticed my Time Flies post has a date of Sept. 13th, that was when I had originally started it and today (Sept 20) is when I actually posted it :)

Time Flies ....

when you are having fun, or so the saying goes. I do have a fair bit of stitching to show. I started the year off with great intentions, keeping my blog and webshots current and sometime during the year it to all went by the wayside. I'm really going to try harder to do this so here goes. I'm just going to show a couple now and more over the next few days, maybe even more today. I just need to get the particulars together on what I stitched.

I made mine into a pillow.
My new header picture was taken at Trout Lake, and you can see the trees are just starting to change for fall. I love this time of year, sunny, warm, cool breeze and the changing of colors makes it just right :)
