Seventh Finish For 2009

Sorry, it's not Birds & Berries! I was bad and started another project. This was a small one so I figured it was okay ;o) Here is Stitch To Win by The Prairie Schooler -


It's hard to tell from the picture, but I stitched mine on 28 count Waterlily Jobelan. I thought the white was too stark and once I pulled the floss colors, I knew immediately what color fabric I was going to use.

I want to finish this as a little ornament and I thought I had some matching fabric for the back but it's too bright :o( I'll either have to dig a little further in my fabric stash or go see what I can find. Ideally I wanted fabric with the breast cancer ribbon on it but I may have to change my mind in order for things to work out.

So...if you check out my Goals For 2009, I only have TWO projects left to complete and then I have achieved my goal by 100%!!!! Since there are only two ornament sized pieces left, I know I can do it ;o)

Today I had a rotten day because I had to go see the dentist :o( I have to admit though that Dr. R is awesome and I'm really lucky to have gotten in with him but I still HATE going and I still HATE the needle. Okay, I got THREE needles. To top that off, some of the work he did was quite deep and he warned me I was going to be sore when the freezing came out. Great! I'm going to be popping pain killers for the rest of the afternoon :o( How's that for whining? LOL!

Take a look at Sharon's Blog and see who was in the neighbourhood for dinner ;o)

That looks really pretty.

Hope your pain killers do the trick. Tooth and jaw aches can really put one in a nasty mood.

That's gonna make a gorgeous ornament :o) Those dentist shots are the worst - glad it's over for ya & hope you're feeling better now. Great new stash in that last post. I have that JCS issue, lots of cool stuff in it. Sounds like you got a pretty good heart report too eh? Love your Birds & Berries, can't wait to see this one progress.
