Friday Progress!

I have been away from blogger for a week! Eek - where did the time go? But, I do have progress! I have met my 2011 goal of finishing projects. I wanted to do at least one per month. Ha - did that in one day! Mind you - I was at it for 9 hours today and my back is killing me - but they are complete!

But, first I wanted you to see my latest picture of Garin and Alivia!

I would take the picture and then Alivia would smile. But Garin has the 'picture smile' down pat. He's just like his mom - Keri would see (what am I talking about she still does this) a camera and the smile is out and she's posing.

I have a finish for the week. And it is even finish finished!

Snowman '10
Lizzie Kate
Recommended floss
 I used the springy fabric Mary Jane sent me. I thought the colors matched perfectly!

And now for the rest of my day! They are all sitting on their backing fabric.

Made into a pin cushion
 






I re-did these and lightly stuffed them this time.
Tomorrow I am mounting many more in an effort to have DH make some frames. If I accomplish this mission - I have less than 5 finished projects in my drawer awaiting their final form. Not bad!

I also finished my February RAK. It needs to be wrapped and a few goodies to go with it and then off it goes! March is near completion - and it's frame is done already! Hey, if I keep this up - I might catch up with myself somewhere! lol

Well, wish me luck with all the mounting - just checked 13 projects! Egad!
I promise to be back soon!
