Take 3!

I have tried to write this post 3 times now and for some reason when I add a picture my whole post is deleted except for the pictures! Grrrr.... Well here goes again!
As some of you may know, I teach 5th grade. For the past couple weeks we have been using our class blog and a program called twiducate. My students are now obsessed with blogging and tweeting. it has made me miss my blog, I feel that I have been neglecting it. Anyway... enough of me pouting.
These first two pictures are both Shepherds Bush. The first one is called Cherry Heart, I was my mom's secret Santa and this was her gift. The next was for Sally. I don't have pictures of the pieces after they were framed because they went straight from the framer to our annual Stitch and Bitch Christmas Dinner. 

My secret Santa was Jackie and here is what she made me. It is beautiful! Thank you again!

Next I have Casting a Spell by Blackbird designs. I found the box at Hobby Lobby and painted it black. 

Below is a picture of the finished pieces that I have by Jackie Du Plessis, this was a class that I took in August. There are quite a few more pieces but they are not complete yet.

And last but not least this is what I am working on now, this is an older work in progress that I pulled out. I have told myself that I'm not aloud to work on anything else until this is complete. Which will be soon because I have got back in a groove where once I sit down the stitching is plastered to my hand.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
