S.E.X and 2 WIPS on the Road to Hana

Well, since I can't seem to figure out how to post pictures in this stupid blog in the order I want them in, I suppose I am going to have to resort to filling out all the blog first, then posting the pics. 

First off, I got new stash the last couple of days. A new workbox, a stitchy book, 2 mags and some fabric. Always fun. The workbox I got at Michael's at 30% off of $7.99. It's a really nice thick cardboard, with a definite French feel to it. It even has a magnet on the front flap to keep it from coming open. Good times. 

My two current projects are Little House Needleworks 'Cappuccino' and a freebie gift from a lady in France, called Sunflowers. (my French is iffy at best, so I am unclear if this is her web moniker, the name of the blog and/or both). 'Cappuccino' is done on Sassy's Fabrics 14 ct Starlite aida in Tan Marble. Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks used. Cup stitched in 'Cranberry' as the original 'Vanilla Pudding' did not show very well. Began Wednesday, December 26, 2007, 8 PM EST. 

As for the French design, it is from the 2008 SAL Toutti Frouti and it is the letter C.(http://sunflowers.canalblog.com/archives/sal_touti_frouti/index.html). Access Commodities Soie d'Alger #1345 (royal purple). DMC printed aida in 14 count #DC27T-arab2. John James platinum tapestry needle in size #26. Frame by Q-snap in 8x8. Began Wednesday, September 3, 2008 at 10:00 PM PST.

The sustenance is the form of a cupcake from Cupcake Lane Bakery in Las Vegas, NV. Road to Hana flavor. Chocolate cupcake has a liquid fudge center and is topped with chocolate buttercream.  http://www.cupcakelanebakery.com/.

to get the pictures where you want them, once they are uploaded and blogger shows you your post (all pics are either at top or bottom of post) you can click on a pic, it will select it, then drag it to where you want it and let go. The pic will move to the new location.

Thank you for that, Missy. I was going nuts trying to figure it all out. :)
