I finished the PM Brave... hmm, either Saturday night or Sunday night. I forget which! But I've been too busy to post until today.
Isn't he cute?
Here he is with the girl - they need the names added under them, then they'll be cut apart (poor things!) because I want the canoe between them and also I want them to turn toward each other instead of having their backs to each other.
I'm back to working on the eagle, but there isn't a lot of the next shade I chose, so I'll be starting the two in the canoe (ooooo, rhyming!) soon.
I've also started the next Stocking, and since I'm posting today, I'll give you a shot of where it's at right now. I just started it yesterday at work and it's going really fast!
No, I started it Monday at work because yesterday I went to JoAnn's for the big sale! I had the day off, and it's far enough away that it is a day-long trip. We also went grocery shopping to save a trip, but more about that in a few.
Here's one thing I got - I wanted kits but since I couldn't use my coupons on them (they were on sale at a whole 10% off - I think they were cheating so I couldn't buy them with coupons!), I directed my attention to the McCall's patterns that were 10 for $10. There was a limit of 10 per customer, but Mum was with me and she got some for me. They didn't have all 20 of the ones I wanted in stock, so here's the 16 I did get.
I love making costumes. Most of these will challenge my skills but I don't care :D I've got a detailed sewing plan that starts in January, when it's so cold and the roads are so icy that I have to turn down the offer of extra work because I don't have a four-wheel drive to get over the mountain. I'll show pics when I start!
Since the kits were a bust, I focused on floss and got all of Night Hunter and Mosslord kitted up. I won't bother with a pic - it was a big pile of mostly greys, black, dark browns and dark blues. I did spend enough for the 30% off card and I plan to go back on the 25th or 26th to kit up some more HAEDs!
We stopped at WalMart to get some grocery shopping done - and I nearly fell over! It was 2002 the last time I saw any cross stitch stuff at our WalMart - yet, lo and behold! - a whole quarter aisle! With DMC!!! Not every color, of course, but I got some greys that had empty bins at JoAnn's, and next time I'll know to stop off at WalMart first!
Also, I do like to take tiny kits along in my purse - I was out of them and right now the stockings are taking their place, but eventually those will be done. I couldn't bring myself to buy them for $3 like at Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's, but I grabbed five at WalMart for 99cents each! Yay!
I got my UFO kit in the mail really fast, but I'll bore you guys with a pic of that next time :D Also, there was a payday! That meant more Random Generator picks of WS-n-B patterns!
This time's winners:
Lastly - no update of the afghan. I've left it alone all week, but I plan to work on it tomorrow evening after I get back from the dentist, and hopefully my hands will be fine!
