ISHW Week-end

So sorry I did not post my ISHW post yesterday, I was so excited to just do an update with all the problems I have been having with blogger.

This is a sweet little ornament Sue H. my sister from another mother gave me, I think it is so adorable, thank-you Sue.

I found this adorable pattern on Pinterest, I am not sure of the artist, I did this on 32 count two over two, he is going to be a scissor fob. I stitched him on my ISHW.

I also worked on Just Nan Little Princess Snow, I did change out the fabric color and thread colors, I wanted something a little different, I am also going to cut the big round eye circles in half, I want her to look a little more dramatic, wish me luck.

My next project to start is a Jeanette Douglas pattern,  I bought this pattern when Jeanette was teaching a class in Minnesota a few years ago, I was at the retreat she gave the class in, she is a hoot.
I just need to get the fabric, I plan on starting this sometime next week.

My wonderful sister-in-law sent this card to me early, she is so funny please read the card it is so funny, sorry about the cuss words, very early for my birthday, we are going to Mexico next month for a great getaway, I so look forward to this vacation every year.
The people staying at our home for us are a beautiful couple, it is a little vacation for them being away from home, and taking care of our home for us, besides boo boo kitty needs someone here to keep her company.

I should get ready for bed the alarm clock goes off at 03:00 tomorrow for work, ugh, it is going to be sleeting out and turn into rain later in the day ugh again, I do love my job, I have a wonderful boss and work for a wonderful company.
