Mother's Tree

Here is my first 12 hours on 'Mother's Tree' by Lavender and Lace. I've already used up almost one skein of floss...






Evil crooked-making scanner!

:D

This will be my grandmother's Christmas present if I get it done. It also makes two goals down for September! And I've been working away at Archangel, too. Mary, sadly, has been utterly abandoned this month. I must rectify that!

I Cracked

I finally surrendered and bought some HAED charts...

(it was the sale that got to me)

I must be insane. I know I'll be seventeen years trying to finish even one, forget about two!

But these are the lovely ones that I chose:



'Poet' by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
.
I've loved it since the first time I saw it. He'll go great with all those other Japanese/Chinese kits and charts I have that I also have never started. *headdesk*
.
.
'Lost in You' by Rachel Marks
.
I wanted one color chart and one black & white.
.
I started printing these with a brand new ink cartridge... it made it through 'Poet', but only halfway through 'Lost in You'. And that was on 'fast draft'... I think I may have gotten a bad cartridge. I've printed out lots of PCStitch patterns on one cartridge... I dunno.
.
*EDIT* now someone tell me where the weird little dots came from in my sentances... O_o

One Goal Down

Several to go!

But I finished the second-floor balcony on Brinkhoff Home and I started some of the framwork of the west wing.


Hmm... odd little house, built from the top down. Wonder if that's what my dad means when he talks about a 'floating foundation'?
*eyes picture*
:D
Also, I've been doing some framing. I have four projects all pretty now, but I can only show you one. The others will have to wait until I have better lighting than I get at 4am.

This is my sister's Claddagh, framed and ready to be given. She's in another state visiting our brother, so it has to wait until she gets back. She doesn't read the blog, though, so I can show it off :D
