Fairies and angels and such

I have finished up all the potholders for my order and I think they turned out pretty too!  What do you think?
And three of the fifteen angels are also done.  I have decided to take a break from the angels for a bit.
Here is my progress on my fairy.  I am getting close do doing the beading and the specialty thread.  I can't wait to see it done.
Our silly girl was keeping us entertained the other night playing with her toy.

And playing peek a boo!
And, well, just being Sylvia!

Thanks for the visit!  Huggles and blessings.

Miss me?

It has been a bit hectic around here the last few days so I missed my last posting day.  But I am back!  I have made progress on my Midsummer Night Fairy but she is put aside for now.
Here is the reason the fairy is put aside.  I have an order for 8 hotpads and 15 beaded angels.  That will be a very nice change of pace and I love to make them.
Jack loves to wind yarn into balls when it is getting about used up to keep it from tangling.  Look at the surprise he found in one this weekend!  Not one of mine and Jack says it was in an area where there is a splice.
The moon was lovely last night and looking forward to tonights as well.  I can never get enough of the moon!

Oh and we must not forget Sylvia!  Here she is all perturbed at mom for not bringing on the cookies fast enough!

Stitchy, stitchy!

Hello!  First I want to share a picture of a very old doily.  I can not even remember who made it but it does have some holes and to me is still lovely.  This is what is known as Irish crochet.
I have been working away on my Rose Garland Runner.  I am past the halfway mark and on the downhill side of it.  Just a little over 40 rows to go!
I found a project from 12006 that I had forgotten about.  Jack and I were going thru finished things to decide what we want to frame.  I need to get the beads for her but I can finish up the cross stitch,
Here is Jack and Sylvia.  Poor Jack is just trying to roll up a ball of yarn!  LOL!

Happy Saturday!

I finally got a picture of the wolf that Jack is doing.  So very pretty!  It's a lot of work but he is enjoying it.

And I wish to report I have the first bag of 200 of 600 needed yo yo's and another back nearly half done.  I decided to add in my blues and make a summer bedspread for our bed.
This morning we were treated to the Silly Mugs show by Silly Sylvia Joy aka Mugs.


Do you see the little kitty paw print left on the sofa?
And here is nappy time last night.

Thanks for stopping by!  Huggles and blessings.

Small Post!

I was happily surprised with a wonderful box of fabric and essential oils Saturday.  I knew some fabric was coming but not such a big blessing!  So I will be happily sewing away!
And I have put away my Cardinal project again.  I am just not enjoying it!  I have been sitting and making my little crochet yoyos.
Sylvia is in love with my purse!  What a silly girl!

And being a hambone on the sofa!

Angels Dragons, and Cardinals!

We had to make a run to Hobby Lobby for price checking and came across a stuffed Tarter Sauce aka Grumpy cat toy.  Just had to take a picture of Jack with it!
And I would also like to announce that my little dragon now has his head and face.  I do hope it makes him happy!
And I have gotten some time in on the cardinals although I have to admit it feels like I will be in this one corner forever!  I will be glad to get it done!
I have also been working away on angels for a friend.  I have snowflakes but they are to curly right now to pose!  LOL!  They need a little stiffening and sparkle.  I was able to get the angels to pose for a picture before their beauty treatment.
Sylvia Joy loves napping next to her best guy!
A pitiful look in an attempt to get cookies!
Washy, washy!
And good night!

Plan Failure!

There are folks out there who are very good with their rotations when cross stitching and follow that plan, but it seems, not me!  LOL!  Those darn cardinals were bugging me to get to work on them and I listened!  So I have had a couple days good go at it.

And I am working on snowflakes and angels for a friend.  The snow flakes I will share with you later but here are the two new angel patterns I tried out.  I will be making the one on the left for my friend and will use soft colors along the skirt bottom.
And here is the finished Names Of Jesus piece before it goes to it's home tomorrow.  I love the tropical look of it.  It is always fun to work with someone and come up with colors they like.  It often is something I would not have come up with.
Well, I guess grocery shopping today was hard on everyone!  LOL!  Jack and I did not sleep well last night and yesterday was a nervous day for Sylvia so she is super tired today.  And so cute when she naps!

Some Plans!

I am taking a break from the big projects to work on a little one for a change.  Then i am going to make a run at finishing some pieces.  This is tempest from Teresa Wentzler I have had for awhile.  Such a cute little dragon!
And I will be finishing up my Cardinals from last year.
And my Rose Sampler too.
I am also working on some new angel crochet patterns for a friend.  One is done and I am trying out another.  It is a free pattern I found on Ravelry.  I can't remember the name of the pattern.  Sorry.
And now of course we need some Sylvia pictures!
