Monday Update Treasure Finish

Finish Number 12
Christmas Treasures 1 of 4 by Elizabeth Almond of Blackwork Journey
Published in Just Cross Stitch Dec 2015 Issue
Used 18ct sparkly white Aida
Thread is Jodyri Designs called Tulip Garden 054R
Started for DUCJC 2016 on Jan 7th. Took 5 Days.

Linking up to the Stitchery Link Party. If you do work with needle and thread head over and share your progress too.

We had a nice even though it was busy weekend. Izzy's vet appointment went fine. Her leg where she got surgery a few years ago is finally building up more leg muscle so that will help but she will always have arthritis to deal with. She put on some weight over the winter but he laughed and said every dog they saw that day had haha. So time for Spring weight loss. I took my pieces to be framed and the guy who frames them picked out the perfect frames so I can't wait to get them back to show off. I made it out of the store with only buying two threads I needed. I told my hubby don't even let me look at anything else haha. Sunday we went down to my families and had a little bday party for my Grandpa. Here is the cake they made for him...
He loved it! We had the normal cake too haha. It was a great visit and my side hurt from all the laughing we did.

Here it is the start to another week. We need to get ready for Spring and put away our snowman decorations. This coming weekend is International Hermit Stitch Weekend and I'm going to start Aquatic Maiden from Tilton Crafts finally!! She is ready and waiting. I don't know what I'm going to work on till then. I was thinking of some older pieces so I can justify the new start haha. I'll be back in a few days to share. Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Woohoo! Another beautiful finish and another one to cross off your WP list. Good luck with choosing the "something else" to work on until the weekend when you start on Aquatic Maiden. :)

  7. Making it out of the store with only 2 threads is quite an achievement for any stitcher! The Blackwork piece is stunning. Enjoy choosing something to keep you occupied before you start aquatic maiden.

  8. What a beautiful finish! I love the variegated floss you used. I am glad Izzy is doing well. The birthday party sounds wonderful. Way to go - only buying 2 threads. (I drove past a Michael's and a Jo-Ann Fabric store today and was in the vicinity of 2 quilt stores and talked myself out of stopping at any of them. That's not always easy when you're in a town you don't normally visit!)

  14. Such a pretty finish! I like your grandpa's cake, you obviously all have a good sense of humour. I don't think you should be allowed a new start until you have finished Hope!
