I started this last weekend (5/19). I did the house and realized (as usual) that I added an extra column so I quit. I restarted it again yesterday. Between entertaining my four nephews (1, 3, 8 and 12 years of age) and taking care of regular household chores I just finished it. I bought this project at Shakespeare's Peddler's here in Hattiesburg. The kit contained the pattern and specialty threads. I really like it, especially the owl. For some reason, the last couple of years I have been attracted to stitching owls. I really enjoyed this one because it was a quick and easy stitch.

Well, I finally finished a project this month. I received this project as the February installment in my Fireside Stitchery Seasons Club. I was halfway through it then got side tracked. Now I have two more projects to do. This project is called Summer Sands by Kick Back & Stitch. This was actually a very easy project to stitch. I started back on it Sunday around 6 and finished it at Midnight last night.
When I finish this club I will have 16 different pieces. I really have no clue what I'm going to do with them. I thought about making them into coasters but how do I protect the fibers? Well that is a problem for later. You can view the different projects at http://www.firesidestitchery.com/infoAlerts/Clubs/Seasons/export1.htm

I have been really lacking in the stitching department this last month. I have tried to work on projects but have been easily distracted. Hopefully, now that I have two weeks off I will be able to do some stitching. I signed up with Fireside Stitchery to do the Halloween Pudgy. I had bought the canvas from Miriam's (Elegant Needle) in Baton Rouge but had no idea how I was going to stitch it. Thank God for Fireside Stitchery. They are going to send me a stitch guide and the threads to complete this project. Keep stitching (I'll try to myself).
