Blackbird Progress Update

Well, the weekend progress continues on "Beyond My Heart". I am working quickly to get done before Spinster Stitcher completes hers. Well, I think I am neck and neck with her. Kind of fun to challenge myself this way. I guess that helps to spur my progress along. Here is what I have done so far. As soon as this one is done I will be starting "Two Hearts" which is the latest pattern in the Loose Feather's club. I am going to do it on a 32 count linen called Cupid's Blend. Stay tune for progress next week on that one.

Sorry that the quality is not the greatest tonight. But when you are trying to update your blog with someone wanting attention from you it is kind of hard to do.

Brinkley (4 months old) is a handful. I cannot wait for the puppy time to be over. He is constantly finding ways to get into things. If it wasn't for his big sister pointing him out when he is bad he would be getting away with a lot more. All I can say is "Thank You Josie for Watching"..... Love Mommy...

Slow Progress

Okay, progress is going slow between the two projects I have going. During the week it seems that I am running out of energy early in the evening which means my stitching doesn't get picked up. My best effort has been a few stolen hours over the weekend. Here is my progress shots of Flying Geese and Chicken Feet....

Also, Sunday's are dedicated to Blackbird designs SAL with my BFFs. Here is my latest progress on "Beyond My Heart".

Husband's.... I am being called back into the family room to spend time with him and the doggies. Well, I guess that cuts my blogging time off early. Sorry, stayed tuned for future updates. If I am lucky it will still be this month. Where does time go.

I am in need of some advice. The picture at the top of my blog is a valentine pattern from Hinzeit that I did several years ago. I did not put glass on it since I have had issues in the past with other ones in which the charms have moved and I cannot get them back in place due to the glass. Well, the charms on this have tarnished and I am not sure what to do to clean them without having to take this framed piece apart. So, if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear about them.

No stitching done this past weekend. What a drag. Between cleaning, visiting, and taking care of sick puppy this was not a stitchy weekend. I hope to make that up quickly.
