Where Did the Time Go?????

It's been such a long time since I have posted.  I didn't mean to stray.  I missed everyone and have loads of news.   First, I would like to say that I have continued my blog stalking, so I can keep up with everyone and their progress.  Love every one's work.  I wouldn't have ventured past DMC and Aida if it weren't for the enabling inspiration everyone provides. ;)
As for life, my DS celebrated his 3rd birthday this past week.  Its been such a wonderful blessing to have him.  I thank the Lord everyday for giving him to me.  The party was awesome (if I do say so myself).   This is a picture of the cake.


 I should point out that I am not creative.  I borrowed this idea from Pinterest.  I may have a better picture of it in my camera.  I will try to get it uploaded or switched out later.  BUT, this was an awesome endeavor.  It only took about an hour to put all of the M & M's on.

On the stitchy front, I finally finished the first project I started after having my eye removed.  It only took two and a half years.  I am not normally that slow, but I get distracted easily (he he he).  I can't decide if I should frame it as a monumental accomplishment or make it into a stitcher's box.  Maybe I should take a poll.  Please let me know what you think.  This is the finished piece.

Plum Street Samplers Freebie Lovely You

As for the HAED I have been promising to post, here you go......  Not very much progress, but its a start.

HAED - Passion Story Keep


Sorry for the cruddy picture.  I will try to get a better one soon.  Hopefully I will be able to pick it up again after the holidays.  I have been distracted (again), by other good news.  My baby brother is getting married. I will have a picture of the sampler in a few days.  I need to finish the beading and a little back stitching.  Wish me luck. ;)

Till next time, keep those needles threaded and frogs away.

The cake is fabulous! The idea may have come from Pinterest, but you are the one who pulled it off. Fabulous!

Wonderful stitching too. I've yet to tackle a HAED. I think I would get too overwhelmed.

That cake is AMAZING! I bet it was delicious too. I love the finished freebie from Plum Street Samplers. My vote is for A stitchers box.
