Did ja miss me? I missed you! For the last three days I've been away on business and I haven't worked a single stitch of embroidery, had any tea, ridden my beautiful new scooter or talked to any of you! How sad!!
My trip to Corona was very productive, the gal who I was training was a smart cookie and super sweet person, so that part went swimmingly. I was too chicken to attempt taking an embroidery kit on the plane... I don't travel by plane very often so I know I'm late to the party on this one, but did you know they make you throw that stuff away right there at the gate? How rude. I'm glad I didn't take anything though, there was a man on my flight to Corona who lost his wine opener (he'd been here on vacation and we have a lot of wineries in the area) and a couple of items from his attache case. So I'm glad I didn't try, I wouldn't want to lose my needles and scissors...but on the other hand my time at the hotel was majorly boring!
Needless to say, I was eager to get back in the game and play catch up with my squares, last night I sat myself down and managed three of them, so without further delay- here we go!!
Now... I know this looks like a Christmas wreath, but its not. It was spposed to look more like this...
Hehe... not even close. Hahahaha! I'm such a putz! I see now that not only is mine the wrong shape, but I also put the ribbon in the wrong place. Oh dear... And this was my second attempt! I snipped the first one out. Oh well, I love Christmas...
I think mushrooms are the best. Fairies live under mushrooms, they look like little gnome hats and sometimes giant, snarky, hookah smoking catapillars sit on top of them. Yup, I like mushrooms, especially when they are sauteed with butter and green onions!
This flower was an accident. This square started out as a cluster of grapes (which I will attempt again soon) I blended my floss colors and set about making a couple of tiny french knots, and I don't know if it was my fingers or my tired eyes or the fact that it was 1:00am, but it just wasn't working the way I wanted it to, so I just said the heck with it and added some big yellow lazy daisys petals, a stem and a couple of leaves and made a wacky looking sunflower. Viola!
Not bad for a night of stitching, we'll see what I can get accomplished tonight...
Thank you again for your comments and compliments, you girls are awesome! Swear, I'm going to develop a big head! But honestly, I LOVE hearing from you, feedback makes me happy!
p.s. HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
