Final touches to 2008 Finish #1

Well, I finished this earlier. I thought I would take the pic. I found the frame for a great price at a secret location not far from home. It was hard to take the pic because the flash kept getting in the way. I have to learn to use my camera to take better pics. But, there it is.

I have not been well. 2 years ago Janet was really there for me when I was hurting. She loves cats. And she has a male cat those same colors. This cat is female with flowers but who cares. She is a dear friend. I hope she likes it. It was interesting to do. There are a few mistakes but I am not perfect.

I hope she likes it!

News

I have bragging rights. I found out my daughter is signed up for Honors Geometry next year!!

She has a 99% average in Algebra now. So she signed up for Geometry and the teacher let her in. I am very excited and proud of her. She works so hard in school. I am somewhat leery though. She can be very dingy. She does go around and show off her science speak. She talks about potential energy here and there, and minerals this and ozone that...on and on. She loves her science and math! I am so happy. I think she would be a great teacher. But, she thinks otherwise and at the time now she wants to study biology in college. She gets very excited talking about college.

We will see what the future holds for her.

Getting bored...

I was able to work on this for a couple of hours today. It is getting boring. But, I have just now decided that I am going to finish up with the gold floss and start on the leaves. So far so good. The count is ok. I have been off a couple of times but not bad. I was able to frog out ok and then fix it. I am happy that it is working that way. I am using shorter floss lengths to avoid knotting. It works.

Update 05/22

The weather is crazy in northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming. Many tornadoes and storms and just rough weather.

I managed to stitch while watching the news. They have been reporting these tornadoes all afternoon. It is so sad. So much damage. They say one person was killed. 'tis tornado season in this part of the country.

I decided to work on the gold border for now. I am working at the bottom part. I may start on the right leaf above the bottom. I will see. It is nice to stitch.

So here are some updates

Lots of photos

It is late at night but who cares. I am uploading all of these pictures. I am not in any of them. Ha ha. But, you can get to know me a little by seeing them. Hope that blogger uploads them right.

This first picture is my new niece. She is now 5 months old. She was born Dec 27th. Her name is Gianna Noelle.







I took this photo when we were down at my mother's old homestead near Mesa Verde National Park in south west Colorado. There is a horse back there. I don't know if you can see it. And, the mountains in the back are called the La Plata mountains.







I took this photo when Elena and I went to Telluride for the day last summer to visit my brother. The weather was bad. Overcast so my pics didn't come out as good as I wanted them to.





Here is a picture of my cousin Robert. I made him the geckos a few years back. He liked them. He is an avid fisherman so if I can find a simple fishing pattern for him that would be super - cool.





Here is a copy of the finished product



Here is a copy of my latest work

Change of color

I changed the pea-green to this cool blue! Much easier on the eyes. :-)

Update

It has been 2 months since I posted last. Sorry to take so long.

I have been working on my April goals. I am working on the Live Learn and Love which you can find in my July 2007 post. I will take some good photos and post them when I am done procrastinating.

I have to clean my room. It is a mess. But, a freaking cat sprayed my window! I am so mad. I like cats, but this pisses me off. So sometime soon I have to get that done.

I am looking for a new template. The green here is little to be desired.

The PM. I haven't worked on it. Getting started on these things is hard. But, I have a rhythm going on the Live Learn and Love. You will see when I get the pictures up.

Have a great night! Happy stitching as they say.
