It's about time for an update.

Here is a quick stitch that I picked up at my LNS.  My second finish for the  year.  The colors were so upbeat I could not pass it up.  I am going to frame it in the next couple of days.  It is an older Bent Creek Farms.

Here is a little of decorating that I did yesterday.  I repurposed it.  It was in my kitchen.  Made it way downstairs in storage.  I was cleaning and found it.  It looks perfect there. It is in my hallway.  The bench I got a while ago at a craft fair.
This is the second piece from the challenge that I joined called Up for the Challenge.  I am almost done.  I lost my mojo when I was working on this one and that is how the above two got started.  I know I have more to finish, but I am such a serial starter and my taste changes and I have to start something else to lift my spirts.  This piece is from a SAL from last year on the internet.
Another one that I purchased at the store at the same time.  As soon as I finish this one I bought a frame at the local St. Vincent dePaul Store.  It is similar to the one in the picture of the pattern.  I did not like this pattern when I first started it but I absolutely love it now.  Little House Needleworks is the designer.

This is the first piece that I started for the challenge.  It is a HAED.  It is called Auras Garden.  Beautiful teals, greens, and yellows.  It is stitched 25ct Linen.

For other things......School.
I am still working on Chemistry.  I have bought addtional study guides so the I can pass this bloomin class.  I know that you have to work for what you want.  Enjoy the journey.  My academic ability has had me question alot of abilities. Then I go to stitching then back to chemistry.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
