Busy, Busy

I'm sorry for the lack of post but with the hustle and bustle of summer break I really haven't had a lot of time for stitching. On my last post I was working on Collecting Shells......not anymore. After almost having it 50 percent stitched I noticed that my whites weren't matching. There was just way to much for me to rip out and restitch and it was too big to try and fudge it. So I cut it up. Yep, cut it up into tiny pieces. Oh, eventually, I will get around to restitching her just not anytime soon. Since then I have been working on QS Fairy Tales from HAED. I have gotten some nice progress on it and then it was damped by having to rip and restitch about 150 stitches....yuck.

Since I don't have any stitching to show I will just have to share some cute pictures of Megan.

She loves her "blankie" is a quilt I made for her before she was born and was one of the few things she could have with her while she was in the NICU.

This one is from when Renee came for a visit. We had a hard time getting her to sit still for a picture. Notice the dog leash that we had to bribe her with just to stay sat for 10 seconds!

I'm sorry to hear that Collecting Shells is in pieces. Hope you try and give it another go sometime soon. It's such a cute piece.

Oh no, that's terrible about Collecting Shells ... hopefully you can get over the heartbreak soon and pick it up once again in the future :) Cute piccies of Megan and Renee :)

Hard to believe your little one is that big already! How frustrating to have to cut up Collecting Shells! Hope your next project is more satisfying.
