2 finishes and a page 2 finish

I actually finished 2 things that were part of the Crazy january Challenge. I am now down to 4 January Challenges to finish. I am very pleased about that. Once they are done I will be rotating with the 5 HAEDs I have started. I have the next 6 HAEDs pulled out of my stash lol. 1 is a stocking for Justin. I also want to throw in a UFO til it is done. But right now I am concentrating on Fragile Heart and Rapunzel since they are 2011 SALs. I also will be starting the Lizzie Kate Halloween Rules Flip Its, on Sunday. Can't wait to start it.
Anyways, here are pics of what I did.

 JBW Designs - A Very Merry Autumn (chart is available)
28 ct lambswool, GAST
1/12/11 - 7/10/11

The Drawn Thread - It's Halloween (chart spoken for)
32 ct Belfast linen, DMC, kreinik, MH beads
1/10/11 - 7/10/11

I finished page 2 of Fragile Heart and have started page 3. As you can see there isn't much to page 3. I will stitch on this again tomorrow night and then back to Rapunzel. I have also decided how I want to finish Fragile Heart. I want to sew it on a black canvas tote bag. I am so in love with this piece and the colors :-)

I have also found that HAED QS(Quick Stitches) are alot more fun as there isn't quite as much confetti stitching and hence the title they really are quicker to stitch up. So if I am to do more HAED SALS it would be for QS.

Dylan will be coming home this weekend and taking his girlfriend back with him, for a week. He will bring her back next weekend.

Saturday will be mine and Scott's 23 Anniversary. I don't know where the time goes and we hit a bump a few years ago but came out stronger.

I am listening to Queen of the Night by J.A. Jance and am enjoying it. I also have started the book The Secret Life of Damien Spinelli. It is based on a character on General Hospital.

I have also been catching up on TV shows on the DVR and watched the series finale of Smallvile. So sad to see it end. I still have to watch the season finale of Supernatural and the last 3 days of the Oprah show. Tonight I watched Pretty Little Liars and The Nine Lives of Chloe King. They were on last night but I was watching Avatar with Allie (Dylan's girlfriend). We have decided to sit here and watch a movie once a week. 

The weather Monday and Tuesday was terribly hot and humid. Today was beautiful but they say it will be a hot and humid weekend.

Well I think I rambled on enough, goodnight,

I like it when people ramble, Shelleen. Of course, no one is as good at it as I am, lol. I think it's great that you're having movie night. My mom and I don't enjoy the same types of movies often, but occasionally we do. I told her a couple of weeks ago, we're gonna have some movie nights. She thinks she's seen all of the HP movies, but all she remembers is Quidditch and the big snake. I think she's seen the first two films, and not the rest. So, since I have all of them (up to and including Deathly Hallows part one), I thought it would be nice for me to bring them all over to her house so we can watch them together. We were gonna watch a movie on her DVD player for Independence Day (appropriately, I brought Independence Day) but the VCR tried to eat the tape. Needless to say, I immediately took the tape away from the VCR and carefully wound it back into the case. Luckily it was at the beginning so the only thing damaged is the copyright warning!! (See what I said about rambling.) Glad you are enjoying your books. I just rejoined Doubleday Book Club. I love buying books!! Fragile Heart is looking really good. I just love her eyes. They're gorgeous!!! And grats on the two finishes. I have a rotation too. I just started rotating pieces, and I love it so far. (Of course, that could change as I'm only on my second piece.) Anyways, hope you're having a good sleep!!

Happy Anniversary!

It's hot and humid here too. It will be months and months before it feels cool. I can't wait!

Fragile Heart will look good on a black tote. Those colors are wonderful.

Gabi said...

Beautiful finishes. Congrats.
Congrats also on finishing a page on your HAED.

Kathy said...

Sounds like you have been busy. Love your wips. And the finish is fabulous!

Thank you for your comment on LHN group.

The shows were in Hamlin. I have a brother who lives in Rochester so I stay with him. I'm sure I'll be back at those shows next year. :)

Congrats on your lovely finishes. OMG how can you even think about having that many HAED's on the go? I'd feel like I never got anything finished!

Faye said...

Cute Merry Autumn!!! Love the beautiful shades in that piece...

Hot and sticky here also...tired of it, but remember the snow...I will hush!

Take care, Faye

Your stitching is gorgeous!! I think Fragile Heart will make such a strong statement when stitched to a tote bag!! I bet you will be stopped everywhere for people to admire it!

I wish you were closer to me - I would bring over my extra zucchini and squash :o)

ArchangelDecker said...

Love the progress on the HAED. It's coming along so nicely! :)

I need to get that same JBW and stitch it up. I've done spring and summer, I just need to get around to the fall and winter ones. :)

Awesome job on the finishes! :)

Nancy in IL said...

Shelleen, I love, love, love both your finishes!!! Congratulations on both beautiful designs! Fragile Heart is REALLY coming along. Isn't it amazing how so many hours go into a HAED??? You have to be such a patient stitcher! But she is truly a beautiful design!

SoCal Debbie said...

Congrats on almost being finished with your CJC. You certainly have a big rotation of HAEDs! I'll watch from the sidelines and cheer you on! Can't wait to see the black tote!
