Happy dance!!!!

Well, I am doing a happy dance today! I finished up my angel yesterday. I think she came out really nice! Working with that braid though was a big pain in the neck! I hope I never have to do that much of it again for a long time!



And I am almost done with my Happy Home piece! I took this photo this morning but I have even more done now. All but the letter H in happy and the letter A are done. Most of the vines are too. i have been a stitching machine today!



I hate the thought of not having anything to cross stitch on this next month. Even with the move coming up I will have free time on my hands. I love to crochet but can't do a lot at one sitting so I need a cross stitch project. Most everything of our cross stitching is packed up. However, I rooted around in my big basket and found this. It is "A midsummer night's fairy" from Mirabella. It is a kit I got when Hobby Lobby was getting rid of most of their cross stitch items. I couldn't afford a fifty four dollar kit for all the tea in china! However, I got this one for ten dollars because the beads are missing. Not a big deal to me. They can easily be replaced! So that is my news for now! See ya soon!
