Just a small dragon project...

Back in July I bought Needle Guardian by Teresa Wentzler from Patternsonline.com. And after waiting almost 6 weeks I finally got the supplies from Paw Prints Cross Stitch.

I decided I needed a small project to get me back in the mood to work on my larger WiPs. Being that I only have 2 hours a night after dinner to do anything; I thought a small project that I could get done in a reasonable amount of time would make me feel like I'm accomplishing something.

So last Wednesday I scrounged around and found a piece of Monaco 28 count Ivory evenweave by Charles Craft. I did have white but thought using the ivory would make the specialty stitches more noticeable. Anyway I've only been working on it for 4 days which is roughly 8 hours of work. Mind you I'm stitching while I watch TV so I'm more apt to be stitching during the commercials, which means not much gets done. Anyway here's the progress so far.....

Hopefully I'll show enough progress to post an update on future weekends.

I’m a Katie Minion....

in the worst (or best) possible way. Case in point-yesterday. Saturday night 6pm I grab the next in my (to read) stack of Katie novels “Hard Day’s Knight”. 14 ½ hours later – Sunday 8:30am - I finish the book. What can I say, I read as slow as a snail and always read the r-e-a-l-l-y steamy parts over twice {wicked grin}. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t put the damn book down.

I love Ren Fairs and the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism)

Next, “Blow Me Down”, historical romance then paranormal dragon (Aisling Grey Series) romance books!
Then I’ll have devoured them all, until next month that is….

What kind of witch are you? Quiz

Found this on a fellow stitcher's blog from www.quizilla.com
What's really amusing is that it kind of pegs me, in that I'm a night
person and I don't let others see my feelings.

What kind of witch are you?

You are a Dark Witch! You are more powerful than witches of the Four Material Elements, and everyone knows it. Your powers stem from darkness and the night. Many have shunned you, and called you evil, even though you may not be. Most of the time, you try not to pick sides, only maintain the balance of nature. You love people, but refuse to show it, afraid that people will use it as a weapon against you, even if you could kill them with a thought. But you wouldn't do something like that....would you?

Common Powers:
Telekinesis- The ability to move objects with ones mind.
Astral Projection- The ability to project a copy of one's soul to another location, retaining all the senses.
Telepathy- The ability to read thoughts, and plant them.
Night Vision- The ability to see in pitch blackness perfectly.
Dark Weaving- The ability to conjure and control shadow creatures, objects, and spells that nothing can destroy or kill but the user.

Take this quiz!

SBQ Meme of the Week

Today's SBQ was suggested by Jennifer and is:

How did you get started stitching?
Was there a person that inspired you?

The permalink to this post is:

It was my grandmother that got me interested. She like to hand embroider pillow cases with hot iron transfers and finish the edging in crochet work. She got me started with embroidering pillow cases and I even tried stamped cross stitch. I was 7 or 8 at the time and my interest didn’t last long. It was in 1983 when my interest was re-kindled and just out of comm. college when I bought my first counted cross stitch kit. It was worked on 14 count aida and was Gather Ye Rosebuds by Kathi Wagner. I simply followed the directions and taught myself.

Just a Quick Note....

Well it's been 3 weeks since I poked my head in here. So far I've managed to read through 4 of Katie's books. The Corset Diaries, Men In Kilts, Bird of Paradise, & Improper English. To say the least I'm driving myself crazy, being that I don't have a boyfriend and no way to relieve the frustration except by other means which I won’t do or go into. {Wicked Grin}

Anyway, I have some good news on the stash front. Back in July I bought Needle Guardian by Teresa Wentzler from Patternsonline.com And just today after waiting almost 6 weeks I finally got the supplies from Paw Prints Cross Stitch in the mail. Wahoo!!

I am so itching to start this, I think just this once I'll fall off "The Wagon" and do this small project. I think that's what I need to get me back in the mood to work on my bigger WiPs.

Ta, All...
