Out Of Hiding

Sabrina is back and you should see quite a difference from the last time I showed you an update :o) I have the front part of her dress completed, all except the beading -


I may have to do the beading during the days when I have more light but we'll see how things go. I want to bead this area before moving on to the middle of her skirt.


I'm still in love with her and very pleased with how well she is coming along. To be honest though, I am disappointed that she won't be finished by the end of the year :o(

It seems that I have been holding out on you all because I have some fantastic news to share! I got a call last Friday and was told that my mammogram was clear :o) That means that I 'officially' have ten years under my belt! What's even more exciting is that Jean, from the Attic, will be posting pictures soon (supposedly this week's newsletter) with some of the items that will be up for auction. If you are not subscribed to her newsletter, you can view it on the web site.

Mom and Dad will be arriving this afternoon for a visit :o) I'm SO glad that the rain has FINALLY ended and it's supposed to be a sunny weekend. Since my blisters have not healed yet, I've been forced to wear my Crocs (without socks). My poor toes were purple this morning. LOL!

Due to the fact that my parents will be here, I probably won't be around very much but will pop in to check emails ;o) Have a great weekend everyone!

Hurray!! Yowza!! Whoop Whoop!!

Three cheers!! Wonderful news
Cathey. I'm here dancing up a
storm in happiness ~ 10 years
clear is a wonderful milestone
and I'm thrilled for you!!

Ah, Sabrina continues to be a
truly beautiful project. When
she's done you'll have yet
another lovely lady to be so
very (and rightfully) proud of.

How's Popcorn doing these days?

lately ... hint, hint.

Have a great time with your
parents and hope the weather
behaves itself while they're
with you.

Looking lovely! Hope you had a great time with your parents.

valerie said...

Wonderful news on your mammogram! Yay!

Sabrina is looking gorgeous! I think it's a lot easier to bead in the daytime too.

Have a wonderful visit with your parents!

Rachel S said...

That is fantastic! Happy dancing all around!

♥ Nia said...

Congratulations on your mammogram!!! :D

Sabrina is so beautiful! She has no many details.. I would prefer beading just in the end of stitching. Why do you prefer to do it that way? I mean beading while stitching.
I've never stitched anything like that, so I'm curious :)

You're luckier than me, I have rain for the next three days, at least =(
Enjoy your weekend!! :)

Lori-Ann said...

Don't the beads get thin the way of the Q-snap? Maybe you don't use a frame. She looks very surrene.(how the heck do you spell that? ggrrr) LOL.

Have a good time with your parents. See you in a few days.

Daffycat said...

Brigitte said...

This news is the best news ever. I'm happy for you!
Sabrina is getting more and more beautiful. And that's one of the things I so love about stitching - to see how a picture comes to life the more your stitch on it.
