"It's taking shape now"

I worked on Shepherd's Bush, O beautiful tonight for a little bit. I thought I would share my progress.
Im so proud of myself for centering the new lettering. I absolutely love this piece. I think I might go work on it some more. The next row is Spanish weaving, fun! :) Hope everyone's week is going well!

Here is an updated picture of Shepherd's Bush, O Beautiful and The Lord's Prayer by Toe. The letters on SB are over one and as you can probably tell I had to take a couple out! eeek. I changed the letters. They are supposed to be the SB lettering but I just don't care for the new lettering I like the old style better. So I'm changing it. If I didn't have to change it then I probably would be a couple rows farther then what I am.I just love Shepherd's Bush patterns they are so beautiful. I don't love working on the Lord's prayer so much so mom is helping me. Shhhh! that can be our secret. :)

A finish and a New Project

I have completed Snow Ho-Ho by Waxing Moon! I'm going to make him into an easel. I was going to finish him today but I need to get the batting and crescent board. But I will have that tomorrow so Im going to finish him tomorrow.
Yesterday me and my mom went to Salty Yarns and I decided to start one of my Shepherd's Bush patterns, with the help of Sally. I had a hard time choosing which one. Stacy was there and she picked a small piece and Sally chose, O Beautiful by Shepherd's Bush. I think deep down I wanted to start that piece anyway so I didn't argue and started it right away. Here is how much I got done,it is not much but I plan on working on it today.

I'm going to stitch, I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Thank you Cindy for letting me know about my misspelled word on my Serenity Prayer by Erica Michaels. I called the framer first thing this morning and they told me that they had to order the frame so it had just been stretched. They told me that I could come and fix it and they could still have it done for Mother's Day. Shwooo that was a close one!
Anyway I had a great time at the May Retreat. I got a lot of stitching done but more importantly got a lot of shopping done as well. I bought two more Shepherd's Bush samplers, I will post a picture of them when I start them (it might be a while). I also bought this cute Lizie Kate Halloween pattern, If the broom fits.
At the retreat every one had show and tell. Someone had a finish that was absolutely gorgeous by, By The Bay Needleart. The colors just popped off the fabric and I noticed that all of the patterns were like that so I bought "Blossom Hills Sampler" The fabric is not white like the picture it is called waterlily which is a light greenish color.
At the retreat we recieved some gifts, this bag was one of them. This lady had a wonderful Idea.

She decided to use a monogram book and stitch her initials and a little pattern on some fabric and to make it a flat padded finish to put on the bag where the clear circle is hanging on this bag. Is this not a great idea!!!?? That was so creative, so I must do it too :) lol I wish I could give her credit by using her name but I am horrible with names!!!

I also got some stitching done on Snow Ho-Ho. I am working so hard to finish this pattern, I want to start some of my other patterns. :( Pout*

I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I also want to give thanks to Sally, Sara, and Mary for a great weekend!
