I finally have some stitching to post. I've been in a reading mood lately and my stitching has suffered for it. So, Friday they let us leave early for the holiday weekend at 1:00 pm if we had all our work done (that's Memorial Day for non-Americans). I decided to finally work some more on Deep Blue Sea. I finished part 3 last night, except the beading. I still need to bead parts 1 through 3. I think that is what I am going to do today. I've decided to just put on the delicas and leave the larger beads until the end so they don't cause divits in the fabric when it gets rolled up. Now, here is my picture.

  This is really becoming a beautiful piece. Hopefully I'll catch up part 4 & 5 soon. Part 6 comes out next month, which come to think of it, is the end of this week. AH! I need to stitch faster!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Memorial Day!

May WIPocalypse

So here's my post for May.

13 Colonies

 I'm getting close to finishing this. A few more states and the bottom border and then it will be done. I only work on this at stitch night so it seems like it's slow going but I am happy with the progress.

 I've finished one side of part 3 on Deep Blue Sea and started on the right side. I'm trying to catch up on this one, so it will be on the stand and be my focus piece at home.

Next up is The Astronomer. I finished page 7 and hence the first row. After I catch up DBS I'm going to start the second row on this.

I picked this up at Stitch Night last Wednesday. It is Mirabilia's new Santa. Don't know when I will start it but I was really taken with it.

Finally, in non-stitching information, we went to see The Avengers today. AWESOME! Joss Whedon did a great job with the screenplay and the direction. As a former comic collector I have to say I was very pleased with the way it was handled. Go see it if you get the chance.

The other discovery I made today is the 7-11 has a sugar free Mango Slurpee! That is great news for diabetics like me. I plan on getting one almost every day. Whoo Hoo!

Thanks for stopping by.
