Here is a good picture of my little monster Lucy-furr aka Lucy. She was playing on my bed with my jeans and I was able to snap this picture. I think it really shows her colours.

This is my angel I posted the other day. It is not properly framed but I was interested in what it would look like so I placed the frame over it. I am quite impressed with it. I am not a big fan of tone on tone but with the black frame that helps alot.

I have talked about the other colours I am doing the angel on so here is a picture of the fabric. The one is Ruby Wine 32ct Belfast Linen and the other is Blue Spruce also 32ct Belfats Linen. The ruby is more of a deep red/burgandy not bright.

Someone asked me as to where they could find the pattern. I got is as a part of a Christmas present. The info is Hardanger Angel by Threads and Things. Designer Karen Buell from 1989. The only thing I would say is it is not really a beginner piece.

Here is my current project I am working on. It is Februray snowman from Vermillion Stitches. This is 2 days worth of stitching.

New finish

Ok so here is my latest finish. It was done about 90 minutes ago. The pictures are not the greatest. I still have to press it and frame it. Hopefully then you will see the picture better. I now have 3 more of these to do. Another one on white, one on blue fir and the last is on ruby wine.

Lucy is growing like a weed. She gained 2 pounds in one month (little piggy). She likes to sit and help me type. We are thinking of changing her name to Lucy-furr (not sure how to spell it properly) cat from hell. She can really be a monster one minute and the the sweetest little thing the next. Right now she is after my ice cream.

My surgery went well last week. I am slowly recovering. I have not really been doing much of anything this last week. Trying to take it esay.

Well off to read emails and head to bed.

Wow two in one day

Ok so since most don't know why I am having surgery I will fill you all in. When I went to the hospital in January for a check up. I was given the good news that I had been arrhythmia free for 7 months. Everyone was quite pleased so we decided to leave things alone for now. I then went over to the pacer clinic and they said my battery needed to be replaced. Finally I have only been bugging them for 4 years to do it. So on February 19 it will be replaced. I will be taking my laptop with me so anyone who wants to chat I will be around. Yahoo IM is especially_4_kathy.

(We think the washer is a big play toy now!! HEHEHE)

Well I have been busy stitching with the help of my new aide.
]'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' (Lucy's contrabution to my blog). Please understand if some things don't make sense as my aide is laying on my lap sleeping right now. You know those tiny little paws are fast.

I have been able to finish off my little angels (may have already sold two) from Hanky Panky. I have only done 7 on blue aida.

Then I finished off the cross pattern from A Stitch In Time (Cherie sent me that in a Christmas exchange) complete with tassel.

I also did two blue patterns from Wrens Song Designs.

Plus my Pink Biscornu from JSC 2008 Christams Ornaments.

Here is a more up to date picture of my Hardanger Angel buy Karen Buller. This is really working up fast. If I get a chance to work on it tomorrow it might actually be done. If not Tuesday for sure.

Cute Lucy storey. The other night we were sitting in the living room eating hamburgs and cesear salad. Well Lucy decided she was going to check things out. She was at my plate a few times and I kept telling her no and pushing her away. Well I picked up my hamburg to take a bit and the little devil grabbed a piece of lettuce and ran away with it. Here is the lettuce flapping in her mouth as she ran. I caught her and the dog decided to come check out the comotion. Well I went to grab the lettuce from Lucy and she growled. Yes that is rright growled. She can growel better than the dog at times. Not sure who she was mad at me or the dog.

Mommy says I am not allowed on the table. How is this mommy? I am in the box on the table.

Watch out Gaby I am gonna get you.

Alot has gone on

As you can see from the title alot has happened since I last posted. My kitten is growing and being a real monster. She just turned 12 weeks old this week.

I am getting all the stuff together slowly for the hospital. Most wont be packed till Tuesday night.

I did buy a laptop so that I can stay in touch with all my stitching friends and pass the time away alot faster than normal. I go in on Wednesday February 18 have the surgery on the 19 and hopefully come home the same day. We shall see. That is IF they docs listen to me which probably wont happen.

I have been busy stitching and finishing off stuff. I did the other Pointsettia Biscornu from the JCS Christmas Ornaments 2008 issue. Which I have to take a picture of so I can post that. I also finished off 7 angels and 3 diamonds. I have been working on a hardanger Angel which has taken me about 2 weeksish. I am not quite finished yet but I have not been working steady on it. When I do work on it I accomplish quite a bit in one sitting. I am hoping to have that finished by tomorrow.

I think that is all for now. I think I will go stitch some more.
