That's a Wrap

Wow! How bad were those closing ceremonies? So hokey. You know, Catherine O'Hara (Cookie? Cookie Googleman?) is really funny, but that show made her look like an idiot. It was just so miserably unamusing and amateur. But over the course of the last two weeks, there were plenty of athletic highlights to enjoy.

My goal was to have my mermaid looking like her old self before this time last year, when I realized that I had made a major mistake. I believe I reached that goal. I am tired of working on her, but I do think I can happily add this project back into my rotation.

Thanks, Melissa!

Been Stitching

This past week I've been a stitching fool.  LOL  I've decided not to meet The Man until I've stitched his background. 

I have to say that after stitching thru the Olympics (then Cold Case and Law and Order), I'm starting to get punchy and silly because I still have to get up in the morning.  Lack of sleep really makes me goofy.  This reminds me of when I was dating my husband.  I would stay up until midnight or 1 in the morning talking with him on the phone (we lived in different cities), then have to get up at 6 to get the little people to school.  So glad we married so we could get some sleep.  Haha

I'd also like to say that pictures really do this stitching project no justice.  The shine of light reflecting on the beads really makes those parts pop.  I'm really loving this project.

Heart of the Valley update

Here is my Olympic stitching update. It's going a little slower that I thought but, for the first time, I'm stitching with silk threads and I found it difficult to adjust the tension...

More Olympic Stitching

I watched Adam Lysacek skate, but didn't stay up to watch the last two skaters after him. The next day I was excited to learn he won gold. He did so well! He's originally from Naperville which is about 2 hours west of me. :)

Here's my continuing progress on LK's ABC Lessons:
