Wild Horses...

...or at least an equine. Squishy's Leo has been joined by the outline of a zebra, Zoe the Zebra!

So... she's not fully finished, but you can at least tell she's a quadruped and possibly horsey, right? If you look closely, there's two big splotches that will be vegetation, so Zoe's actually more finished than she looks.

Hopefully, tomorrow I can get more work done on my own horsey project.

Craftily yours,

Ain't no Rest for the Wicked

So, readers from last year will remember that I was waiting on my cousin's baby to be born so I could finish her birth sampler. Savannah the Very Brady baby made her appearance soon afterward.

Her parents absolutely loved this. I'm glad I could give them a gift they can enjoy for a lifetime.

My brother, the Ninja Baby, now known simply as Squishy is already 16 months old... and I have yet to finish his birth announcement, but will be breaking it out on the first week of August to work on it for one of my forums.

I also started a smaller pattern for Squishy. It's a Dimension Gold Petite kit called Fantastic Creatures. It should come out looking something like this.

But at the moment, all that exists is Leo Lion.

For once, I've started something for myself. *Gasp* I know, so unlike me and my blog, but even a wench's fancy gets tickled once in a while. The pattern is called Horse Companions and should look like this.

However, only part of the shoulder from the horse on the right is stitched. This is roughly 350 stitches in.

So this catches things up. I have other projects in the wings, including Murphy the Green-Winged Macaw. True, he was meant as a gift for someone who is no longer a part of my life, I'd feel almost guilty if I didn't finish him.

Yes, that's right. CW's back. Where did I go you ask?

My life basically disintegrated around my ears. Mr. CW and I are no more. I wish him all the best and hope he knows nothing but good in life. It took me a while to become a functioning member of society (interwebs and real) but I think I have a pretty good grasp.

While this was happening, I switched schools. The world load became prohibitive of any outside activity. I've been stitching pretty steadily since the Winter '09 semester ended in May, but, well, I still lacked the motivation to write my blog in an entertaining way. No one wants an "Oh, Woe is me" post.

So... in the next few days, I'll be posting a bunch of updated work, work from new projects, the works.
