What the fluff?

IDK wth is going on with me, but since I have turned 39 in March, with my health it's been one thing after another. Near continuous sinus problems, PMS issues, colds, possible flu, headaches, nausea that would fell an elephant. What the fluff?! If this is getting old, you can shove that. Bay-beh! Send my fat ass back to 38 and I'll just stay there, thankyouverymuchpleasedrivethrough.

I managed to start a new project (SURPRISE!!!) and I managed to get around to completing up an older finish. Interesting question: when do you call it a finish? When it's done being stitched on, or when it's in it's final form? Inquiring minds want to know. :)

Anyhoo....here are my WIPs, the lone completed finish and some kittehz bein....well...kittehz.


Completed finish, all no sew (go go Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue!) :

Began: Tuesday, February 17, 2009.

Finished: Tuesday, February 25, 2009.


Stitchy notes:

Design: Love Letters (member only)

Designer: Papillion Creations

Fabric: 32 count mocha linen

Fibers: DMC B5200 and 815

Started: Thursday April 11, 2009

I've about half decided that I really do not like 32 count fabric. My eyesight is 20/20 with my contacts in, but I just don't like the tiny aspect of it, if that makes any sense. Unfortunately for me, the color of the fabric really makes the design and colors pop, and I didn't have any 28 count mocha linen in my stash and I am on a 'use what you have' kick, ATM. Sucks to be me, I guess.

WIP #2:

Stitchy notes:

Design: Necessities Sampler

Designer: Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks

Fabric: 28 count antique white either lugana or jobelan

Fibers: DMC 420, 739, 869, 924, 926, 928, 936, 3011, 3013, 3371, 3768

Began: Saturday, April 18, 2009

Hope everyone is having a good day. And thank you for playing! :D

You poor old lady! You're falling apart! Hope things improve soon.

Great finish and lovely progress on your new projects!

ROFLOL The cats are hilarious. I should get another cat just to see what fun we could have! Only cats make the dog nervous so maybe not!
