So I went online and asked the Facebook needlepoint group where to go to purchase different black, wire doll hangers. The Country Porch had exactly what I was looking for- a 3" hanger. And look at the difference.

In Midland, I have a housekeeper, which is something I plan to replicate on Houston when I get back. It's been really nice to be able to needlepoint on the weekends and not worry about cleaning beyond just straightening up.
This is what I have accomplished: lots of little pieces but I've loved clearing these out of my stash.

For the past few months, I've been on a temporary assignment in Midland, Texas. I'm living in a corporate apartment and I love it! It's fully furnished and I've been able to travel on the weekends to Carlabad Caverns, Monahans Sand Dunes State Park, and most relevant, Lubbock to visit Pocket Full of Stitches. This store is the best! All sorts of threads and canvases and books. I got this cute little Associated Talents bunny there and finished it in no time.
My first month in Midland, I finished this piece too. It's number two of five in a Christmas carol series.
And this cute one! It's a Barbara Bergsten canvas I got from the Needleworks in Austin in 2013, but wanted since 2010! It's perfect.
I'm also almost done with this Stitch It's Sweater.

This year, I've resolved to be a better blogger, among other things. So in that vein, it's fitting my first post should be on the 1st.
I have lots of new canvases to show, but the pictures didn't turn out so well because of all of the grey Texas days we've been having.
Until I get the pictures, here is a progress picture of one of my petei nativity canvases.

I'm back to my blog! Work has been crazy and so has life. Molly went through a bit of a health scare about the time I stopped blogging. Her vet thought she had congestive heart failure, but luckily a dog cardiologist confirmed that she did not. Football season has kept me busy with trips and watching games.
Since July, I've turned in a few pieces for finishing, acquired a few, and stitched a few.
