New Finishes and stuff

This is my latest project. It is another contest biscornu from The Victoria Sampler. As you can see this is a fall one this time. I wonder if we will have a winter one too. I really took my time on this one. Don't get me wrong it is not hard at all. I was just lazy mostly and spread it out of the whole week rather than probably about 1 1/2 days.

Here is a not so good picture of Bethany's Sampler finished. I will see if I can get a better picture of it. Now I have one more to do to sell.

I need to kick my butt in gear this weekend and get me entry forms one for the Fall Fairs so I can get my tags before hand.

Ok as you all know I have several gardens around the house plants and veggies. Well I have never seen anything like this before. I have a sunflower with another sunflower growing out of the center of it. I will post more pictures of it as it progresses. Only things like that happen in my garden. My niece calles it the mutant sunflower.

WIP progress

As you can see this still has areas that need to be filled in. Or at least I hope you can see that. I have a shopping list that I need to get next week to finish it off. It should take me about another day as most of the missing areas are speciality stitches and beading. I will post completed pictures when it is all finished. But can't supply a picture with it framed as it is a gift for a friend (not on these groups). She is giving it to her grandchildren for Christmas.

This is the top half.I did it this way so hopefully you can actually read the saying. It is a very touching verse.

Here is a closer look at the bottom half.

New and progress report

This is my current WIP. It is called Bethany's Sampler by Dragon Dreams. I did this one for my niece when she turned a year old. Her's is on yellow linen. I have a friend who wants this for her two grandchildren. This is 2 days progress.

Now the green one is not totally finished. I still have the petit blanket stitch and the nun stitch to finish. They both still need beads and the hardanger. The next picture of these they will be totally finished and hanging.

Here we are playing catch. Mom throws the paper up the stairs and I knock it down. I like looking at the world upside down. Things just look so much better.

Oh look mommy wants to make the bed. Let's make it impossible for her.

Here we are sleeping quietly on mommy's bed. Aren't I an Angel with devil horns.
