Ok here are some new pictures of my poor pathetic garden for this year.

As you can see I have several coneflowers (echinica). I forget what this is called but will look it up and post it later.

Ok I tried to turn this but I don't know what happened. But this is a yellow and black coneflower that grows upto 8' high.

This is called Tomatoe Soup and to look at it that is exactly what it looks like.

The rest of the pictures are of the garden in general. I have several coneflowers purple, white, green, tomatoe soup,yellow, tiki torch and one that starts out orange and then goes pink. Can we say coneflower obsesed?

Newest WIP

Ok as promised here are finally some pictures of my new WIP that I am working on. It is another Welcome Hearts banner. This is what is done so far. Got smart this time and am doing all the stitching as I come to it so this one should take less time to finish than the last one did.

WIP progrress report

Ok so here is the progress I made today. Doesn't look like much I know but if you look you can see the amount I have done.

Here is a closer look at on of the individual heart on the banner. You can see the little flowers in there that are purple. They are almost the same colour as the fabric. I still have to put some beads on here which I think are going to be a perl grey colour. Well that is the plan at the momment. I wrote down the list of materials I am using but that is upstairs.

About two weeks ago I got this early birthday present from my parents. It is a Daylight lamp not an Ott lamp. So far it has helped at night and on dull days. I think it will really help when I do my angel on black.

OK so this is not a picture of my current WIP but I could not resist this as she was sleeping quietly while I stitched.Isn't she cute in her new collar??

Here is my current WIP. It is the Welcome Hearts banner from Victoria Sampler. I will put a list of what materials I am using tomorrow if I remember. This picture is as of 11:30 this morning.

So I have worked quiet a bit on this today and this is what I have accomplished by 4:30 pm. I am hoping to get another good chunk done tomorrow as well.

I almost shot this little fart today as she kept stealing my cottons. She thought they were great play toys.

Done Done Done

Well almost three months and it is finally done. Tonight I have dinished my angel on ruby wine. The material colour does not show very well but you get the idea. I am now griding my Sangria to do the Welcome banners on. This material was from Annette in an ESC hand dyed-fabric exchange. Can't wait to see how they will turn out. I have enough material to do two of them on one piece. Hope to have the out line of one done by the weekend.

I haven't put up a picture of Lucy in awhile so I took this one tonight. She is now 7 1/2 months old and a supper suck. Anytime I go out she sits at the back door and cries and bawls cause I am gone. Another family member has to get her and cuddle her still she settles down. What a baby.

Here she decided my foot tasted good.
