Sturgis 2008

So, if you do not already know, I will be headed out for Sturgis on Tuesday morning, and will arrive back on the 12th. In case you need me, I will be watching my blog and still posting. Hopefully my connection is better, and I can download some pictures. I am very frustrated with not being able to do so. :( I have a lot of stitching going with me! Before I leave I will mail the 3 Ladies to you, Colleen. I will take a needleroll, my fair and squares, my next 3 Ladies, A hedgehog finish, and one to start, Skeleton Crew, a bent creek mini, etc. I will post my progresses, and hopefully pictures. The reason we are going, is Jon actually won a gig at the Gold Chip you can see his info at Everyone have fun, and I will definitely try! Laura

Now I know this is not cross stitch related, but I had to share. I purchased this book early this month with 40% off their books sale.
This Selbuvotter book is a great read , read it many times. I went ahead and tried the stranded work - (not one thing I am good at) - it was too small with fingering yarn . So this morning , found some naturespun sport in my stash along with size 3 needles and perfect.
Cuff took about an hour and then the rest flew by - - really need to keep tension loose with the stranded work - but I am in love!


Lastly, this is the piece I made - my first floss keep.
I will be making more.

Here is the piece sent to me. This is very sweet and cute. The colors are soft and the button is forever adorable! This came with a few other surprises. Self sticky notes, peonies hand wash and lotion - which I used right away and smells totally awesome., mailing envelopes - will put to great use - ,

Peace, something so beautiful, and yet seemingly so hard to find, when one is not so small. I hope you all find some peace today :) I will go to see Dante this afternoon. Working on homework, and finishing 2 projects which I will mail out tomorrow. Peace.

King Tut

I wanted to give all you ladies a heads up. I found this a couple of days ago. It's a "superchart" of Tutankhamun. I was able to find one on ebay and snatch it up. The picture of the stitched piece is absolutely gorgeous!

My Son is Home

Just thought I'ld let you all know. Now I don't have as good of a reason for being spacy. He finished his second part of his tour of Irac and is stationed in FT. Stewart GA.

Hi everyone! I am sorry it has taken so long to write. I just found out a few days ago that I am a grandma! The kids were abit anxious to tell, but even so, I have a wonderful blessing! A grandson - Dante Joseph Mansfield Just so you all know, I have pics, but unfortunately blogger is not liking me right now... I will try once again, and then I will have to figure it out later if not. He is a beautiful boy! Laura
