So I have been working on these 2 projects since Oct. 2008, yes I got distracted so I have decided to start working on them. I really love Edwina bear. As yo can see I got half way done on her before I laid it down. I really can't wait to finish her

Now the horse pattern, I started it for my DD. She loves horses. I hate the pattern, I think it is the color changes. I will do one or two stitches and I have to change. I have had these type of patterns before, but I am having allot trouble with this one. The colors are so close in color I was having a hard time keeping my place so I put the grid on the fabric. I hadn't done that before, but it has help. Since I haven't gotten far on it I took a picture of the book.

New Finish

I took this photo of the pieces laying flat so you could see it better. There is something about the little Gingerbread house, that makes them hard to photograph. This is the 2nd house I have completed. I will be starting on the 3rd one soon. I have really enjoyed these. This is the first time I have worked with this many seed beads. But I loved it. Well except for the part when I keep spilling the beads.

Craft Building

This is my pride and joy. It took 3 years to build and another year before we got the heat pump put in it. It started as a simple building. And grew into a huge project, but I love it. This is my craft shop A.K.A doll house. This all came about because my hobbies GREW . I had stuff ALL over the house, I was amazed where I found my craft stuff. And how much I actually had. But when I started making porcelain dolls, we knew something was going to have to give. So my husband decided I needed to go out into the backyard . I was hurt but I am over that now. LOL This is much better than trying to cut out your patterns on the living floor while the dog is walking all over you and the cat is laying on the pattern. I don't know I mite miss that, NOT!

Stumpwork Finish

O.K. This is my first time so as you can see I have posted a picture of both pieces.

Stumpwork Finish

I finished my first Stumpwork piece. I love the way it turned out. I will be giving this to my mom for Christmas. I started it last Oct. I go to a class at a local fabric store. I am the only one who has finished so far. I actually made two . I am giving the other one to my mother-in-law.
