Busy, Busy Bee!

What a whirlwind... It would appear that tomorrow turned in to next week! I still forgot to take a recent pic of the Sunflowers. HOWEVER... the Boy and Girl stayed with their Father for a fish fry this past weekend. Instead of twiddling my thumbs with boredom from lack of rug rat amusement, I completed my weekend chores and stitched the remainder of my 3 day weekend.  You will not believe what I have accomplished!

First up... I finally framed The Guardian Angel for my lovely momma. (Mom... if you are reading this... avert your eyes and just hit scroll down for a few second!)
I'm totally thrilled! I just hope Mom doesn't cry when she finally sees it. I may have mentioned before, but this was my Aunt Trudy's absolute favorite picture. The Christmas after she passed, we all received ornaments dedicated to her depicting this picture. I just thought that this would be pretty for a year round sort of thing.

Moving on before my eyes start to run amuck... the Boy and Girl picked out several Christmas ornaments from Just Cross Stitch MAgazines Christmas editions from 2009-2011 years. I know we're only in spring, but I figured I might have a few finished for this Christmas.

I finally added the beads to this one. I've bought the ribbon to close it up with, just need to get it done.

The Boy picked out the Sock Monkey. I think he's too cute. It was a pain in my flat tush trying to find his mitten buttons. Thankfully, 1-2-3 Stitch had them on the site.

And finally... I finished stitching this cute little snow man on Sunday evening.

Let me just rant for a second... it's hard finding the trims and beads when you live in a somewhat small town. Our Hobby Lobby and Joann don't always have what I'm looking for. I get these ideas in my noggin and when I can't find the exact thing I start stomping my feet and screaming like a toddler in a temper tantrum... only in my mind of course... my exterior remains the cool and composed Southern Belle that I have morphed into. Hehehe.

Well... it's turned out to be quite a beautiful day here. I hope yours has as well... don't forget to stop for a second, take a deep breath of fresh air and enjoy the sunshine! Toodles!
