Behold! The Tigerlily

She is complete. Finally. She's so pretty. Not much of a fairy kinda girl, but I just had to stitch her when I saw it. Jen and my SAL (stitch off) went pretty well for awhile, but she actually beat me. She is the stitching queen. But it's pretty motivating to have someone stitching along with you. I get more done that way. Overall we are neck and neck with finished projects so far this year. Our next SAL will be the new Lizzie Kate Holiday Spirit Flip It series. Should be fun. I will keep you posted on that. Have a great evening. Gotta go to bed.

Finally Finished

I finally finished making my frame for Santa Sleigh Ride. It took forever. I had so much trouble with my router and getting smooth and even. But it finally came out ok in the end. The second picture shows the color of the frame better. I'm leaving it hanging in my craft room year round.

More progress on Tigerlily. Almost done. I only have her wings left. I had to stitch fast to catch up with Jen. Isn't she pretty? I should finish her this weekend. Then start on a frame for this too. Maybe it will be less trouble this time.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and all the nice comments. Love to here from you. Have a great day.

Movin' On Up

Making good progress on Tigerlily. Movin' on up the body. I am done with the skirt except for the back stitching. I'll do that at the end. The colors and beads are so vibrant. The pic doesn't do it justice. All that's left is her head, arms, and wings. It should go pretty fast.
Hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July. We hauled our motorcycles to Louisiana to my parents house and rode all weekend. It was pretty hot, but nice. I love to get out and ride. Don't have to really go anywhere. It's a great time to think about things, talk to God, and enjoy the scenery. We like to get on the country roads and just go.
Worked on the nativiy piece a little bit. Not much progress on anything else. Don't have much more time to do much stitching. I get real busy July 28. We start football practice. My fall is really hectic. Football, softball, and soccer. I have to cover and take care of all the athletes for all three sports. It's very hot in south MS August - October. So I pray everyday noone falls out with heat stroke. That's about it for me. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
