Northwind SAL Week 9 and Other Things!

I haven't gotten Angela's picture yet and not sure if Rose has had time to stitch. So, it will be only Shari and I for this post and our pictures look pretty much the same (except for that extra curlicue I did).  When I get the other girl's pictures I'll edit like I did last week!

So here they are ~ 

 Yippee! We have finished! Angela shouldn't be too far behind us. Can't wait to see what she got done this week.

Now there happened to be a finish this morning too (finished Northwind last Sunday).

Little House Needleworks
scrap of linen
recommended floss
And somewhere in my travels through bloggerville I happened to see a TUSAL jar and they had taken it a step further by having one for all the DMC sleeves. At the time I didn't get it. Then like a sledge hammer the other night - BAM! What an idea - knowing which floss I need at my fingertips without searching.

Here's my - I'm waiting for a sale jar

And finally - the winner of the Valor vs Mocha question was ~

Threw a few stitches in Saturday night to see how they looked. (can't you tell that's a berry?) Anyway, not sure if I am going to work on this some more today or pull out another ornie for the tree. Leaning more towards the ornies - then I can finish them and be working on Cardinals through the holiday season.

It's a beautiful day outside and I should be doing something useful. But, instead look for me in the chair!

Way to go, Denise and Shari! Happy, happy dance for you both! And I really like Joy. I have a dear cousin with that name, and I always think when I see a design like that that I should stitch one for her. Haven't yet, though. Oh, well. You know me!

What's this about "It's a beautiful day outside and I should be doing something useful. But, instead look for me in the chair!"??? if it is that nice out, take your chair out!!! Silly.
Smile and Be always in stitches.
