Top of Elizabeth:
Sorry these aren't the best pictures. Michigan has been having the worst weather the past few days. 80 one day - rainy and cold for three days, so taking good pictures is a hit or miss proposition. Anyway, back in the day, when something didn't stand out all that well on a piece, we'd outline it. But that was back in the day, so no outlining on Adam &Eve - I'm just going to leave them ghost-like. Actually they look better in real life. Another one crossed off that crazy January Challenge and another one for the A&E wall. Me thinks that at the rate I'm going, I won't be completing 15 projects this year. Oh well, it's all about the journey, right?
And where is the A&E wall, you ask? Well, it's coming along. I want to get Elizabeth framed and then I'll unveil the wall. I have templates stuck all over the wall and no matter how I arrange them, I know that I need Elizabeth framed before I start pounding nails. You have to remember that my husband is anal about holes in the wall, so I don't want to make mistakes! LOL
After finishing Elizabeth, I went back to another January challenge piece, Sarah Esch. But we have very pitiful progress - pitiful because those pesky frogs visited:
Things have been in high gear around here with the end of the year things - dance recitals, track meets, AP exams and all the cramming and my son's upcoming graduation. So it's been busy and that's probably why Elizabeth took me forever. Last weekend was the normal round of recitals and would you believe it - I have no pictures! Well, I do, but they're on the other camera which is not digital, so no great costumes to show this year. But while DD was at one of her recitals, I took a little hike to an Antiques Market that was being held nearby and scored another frog - but the kind I love - not the frogs involved with threads:
Well, once again, there isn't much else to talk about unless you want to her about my son grumbling about AP exams, or the normal trials and tribulations of life. I did have a shock this week though. My son informed me that he asked a girl to the Prom - and even more shocking - she accepted!! LOL Not really, my son is a great kid, but this is the first I've heard of a girl in the picture. I guess it's time - he's going off to Spain this summer and then college in the fall, so it's about time a girl showed up in the picture somewhere. But oh dear, does it make me feel OLD!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me the wonderful comments that you do. I'm still having a bit of trouble commenting on blogs. The Geek Squad can't figure out what it is unless it has something to do with Blogger. Some times of the day I can get in and make comments with no problem and then other times, I can't - the wireless modem shuts down. So bear with me - I'm reading everyone's blogs, just not able to comment all the time.
Hope you have a wonderful week, and make it a stitchy one!!
