A Birthday Present and a cute Chubby Face

On Monday I heard the postie on his bike, didn't rush out as I wasn't expecting anything and he had a couple of beautiful things for me. Dot from These Two Hands Blog had sent me a couple of LHN charts  for my birthday and one has the beautiful threads to stitch it with. I can't wait to start them but first I have promised myself to finish Julia Flynn.  Thank you Dot for your lovely present.
 
I can't help but share this card that my DS and DIL got me - it made it laugh all day.  He looks just like my little Duc except for the hair of course.....LOL. I will put it where I can see it when I stitch to put a smile on my face.
 


Hasn't he got the sweetest face (the snowman I mean) - when I was stitching him I had the eyes done and then the scarf outline around his face and he looked like a mummy - I stitched hard so he face would appear as he was freaking me out a little with his stare.
I was hoping to finish off an ornament today - it is 3/4 finished and I am doing the beads around the edges for the first time - I am happy with how it is turning out.  I put it down when I got to the hanger yesterday and still haven't picked it up yet today.  

I spent most of the morning cleaning the bathroom - Yuck why is this such a horrid job - that and cleaning the oven must be the top 2 of dislikes on most women's cleaning list.   I also made a slice called Lemon Delicious.  It was really strange as I cooked the base and let it cool and then poured the lemon on top - took it out of the oven and the thought ran through my mind that it doesn't look like the picture.  Now it is a little cooler it appears that the lemon has gone to the bottom and the base to the top.  As long as it tastes good I guess.

Well I had better finish this off as I have to go and pick up DH from work.  

Till next time keep all your needles threaded and stitches crossed.  God Bless

You are so very welcome. ;o)

Your snowmen are coming along very nicely. Funny that you had to stitch his face in so quickly. I was trying to imagine him with just the eyes creepily glaring at you. (grin)

The card is so very cute. His face is darling.

Now see, you've got us all baking slices. LOL!

Very nice presents, Annette! I am actually working on the LHN Fa La La right now! It is a quick and easy stitch--instant gratification :)

Your snowmen are coming along so well--I'm sure they're happy to have their faces.

Lemon Delicious sounds, well, delicious--yum!

Little House Needlework is the type of project I'm working on.

I stitched a lot yesterday in the waiting room and made tons of mistakes. I'm keeping it as is though. A reminder.

Happy Birthday, Annette! Your Snowman looks adorable.

Karyn said...

LOL, you crack me up! I just love your posts, friend! What a great WIP, and I can totally see how the eyes would freak you out. The dog pic os sooo funny. Now for a question, what is a "slice?" I think it may be cake?
