It's Been A While

Been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. As such there hasn't been much time for stitching, but a lot of 'life organization' taking place. On my birthday this year, back in mid-March, I managed to get my motorcycle endorsement class passed. I am so, so excited. It will be a bit before DH can purchase my bday present, a Kawasaki Ninja 300 SE in white. I am so, so excited!!

In the mean time, in between time, DH and I moved from Reno to Las Vegas. We didn't expect to ever come back to LV, but life is what happens when you're busy making other plans. There were opportunities that presented themselves and we simply could not pass them up. The good news is that we managed to find a very nice house for rent, and I now have my own craft room!! Woohoo!! I will post pictures once I get everything the way I want it. It's going to take time and a bit of cash, but then again, what doesn't, yea? 

I also managed to get two tiny finishes done. These were purchased at Stitcher's Paradise when I was down a bit ago doing interviews. They were fairly cheap and included all of the silk, fabric, buttons and a needle for stitching. They went *VERY* quickly and I look forward to stitching others. 

Here is the first one, Violet Egg:

The second one that was finished up back in late March, Be Happy

This is the view from my craft room, a view of the Strip. 

Well, I had best be off. It's past my bed time and I have a lot to do tomorrow, including more unpacking. Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
