Little Green Man

Hi All!
My my where does the time fly? I'm sorry that I've been absent for so long, I surely didn't mean to go nearly two weeks between posts again. Well, what have I been up to? Dearies, let me tell you, I've been up to my nose in floss!

I just completed my first submission for an art show! I'm very excited to see whether or not I'll be accepted. My friend Ellen is curating a show this summer in Los Angeles and the piece I made is for her show. I don't think I'm ready to post about my piece here just yet, but I will soon, I promise. I also had a swap piece to complete and get posted to it's new home in New Zealand. It should be arriving in a day or two, and once she's received it, I'll share that with you guys as well.

So... how about a little Green Man in the meantime?? It is nearly St. Patty's Day after all!
I stitched this little man as a filler project a few weeks ago. I like to have little stitches in between the big projects I have going. Do you guys do that? 

This little fella came from Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching The Motif book.

He'll be a part of a woodland ticker tape quilted wall hanging... eventually.

This was an in progress picture that I used for my photo blog a few weeks ago.

I'm wishing you all some Irish cheer this weekend, and if you see someone *not* wearing green, pinch 'em! Tell them I said it was ok!

Best of luck with the art show submission... can't wait to see what you've created! I'm sure it will be perfect :)
I am so up to my neck in big projects that a filler one would get lost....hoping for a few finishes soon. Happy St Patricks Day... Yet another holiday we don't celebrate here in Australia( I'm beginning to think we are party poopers LOL)

I'm so glad that you made the deadline for the submission! (I've been sending good stitchy-vibes your way!) I'm honored that I got to see a teaser, and can't wait to see it in completion! I know it's going to be fab.u.lous!!

How's Lola girl? Been thinking about her and hope she's feeling better.

Love that Green Man-- that's going to be a cool quilt!

Okay, this comment is so long I should have just emailed or called you~ let's talk sometime soon.

Hey there lovely, got all excited when my blog feed mentioned a swap...I thought I could sneak a peak.
Love the green man, have you seen the one urban threads has. I sewed him up a couple of years ago and sold him on a cushion-must make another one

The Green Man is beautiful, Lisa! (I do the same thing with filler projects...I actually get a bit panicked if there's nothing on my hoop!)

Can't wait to see your submission for the show.

Wow, I love the green man stitch! I think I am going to add that book to my wish list, it has so many cute designs. Is it good for learning new stitches?
