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.

Must have a thing for Brenda Stofft's canvases!
And the I got this one on super sale at Chaparral.
Followed by these two from the Quarter Stitch in New Orleans. My family and I had a blast there celebrating my sister's 21st birthday! Spa trips, drinking, beignets, delicious food, and history all in one!
This is a Clementine Hunter design on canvas.
This next one is by the fabulous Melissa Shirley.
Pat O'Brien's for a delicious hurricane!
St. Louis cathedral
The apartment where Tennessee Williams wrote "A Streetcar Named Desire".
Corn stock fence.
Just a building :)
Cafe de Monde
And then home to this cutie!

For some reason, I've been tearing though my stash. I've been trying to finish pieces I've started and only start new ones that are already kitted.
This summer, my sister is going through my fibers and recording each one on an excel spreadsheet. I'm hoping to avoid spending money on threads I already have. Especially when I only need a bit.
These are my finishes so far.

Over the past month, I've been so lucky to have received some needlepoint related gifts from two great stitchy friends. I wanted to show them off because they are so neat!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted! I've been working away although not quite as much as I would like.
The week before Memorial Day I went to Camp Allen with my stitching friends and had a ball! I love Camp- never thought I would say that!
This is what I worked on:

I've been really bad at posting pictures of finshed finished pieces. Here are a few that I've gotten back so far. Some of these were from the fall. I have three more pieces at the finisher including one at the framer.
This is the Princess and Me alligator that I got at Camp Allen. How it will be finished is still up in the air.
The Bama Girl pillow is back! Hard to photgraph but the fabric is black on black with black fringe. Love the look!
A valentine's pillow I got back in the fall.
This is one of my first pieces ever completed. It was purchased at Meribee Needlearts near my grandma on FM 1960. I got this one back in the fall too.
The Charley Harper basset hound!!
