What I did on my ISHW and surgery for Mike

Greetings all: This has been another day that was snowy and cold, I had to shovel a three car driveway this morning, we had 3 inches of snow, Mike had rotator cuff surgery last Thursday and could not  shovel, also he winterized the snowblower last week before surgery,  oh well it did not kill me, perhaps I lost three pounds, wishful thinking.
This is what it look like this morning ick.
Mike just had to get the mail by himself, bad boy I was nearby. Poor guy one arm man.

Last week-end was the ISHW weekend, I did loads of stitching, I did manage to get more done on my Hearts Content scissor fob, hopefully I will finish tomorrow.
I also finished the first of the biscornu pieces and started on  the bottom  piece.
I love this pattern, it is so sweet, I am doing my own colors and adding more beads to this piece.
I need to make a total of three biscornus.
This is a Jeannette Douglas pattern from  2010, this has been in my stash for a while.

I wanted to show you my next project, I plan on working on this in between the Jeannette  Douglas and beading bracelets.
I have been on a Shepherds Bush addiction, I do not know why.
This is the scissor fob from the Shepherds Fold, I stitched the  needle book last month.


I love the Shepherds Bush Fold it is so sweet, I hope to save enough to buy the box that it shows in the picture of the A Full Heart the box top the  first part of the Fold.

Lynn over at is having a great giveaway stop over and see the lovely things she designs and the Kat patterns she has designed.

I am off to stitching some more and watching Dancing With The Stars.

Happy Easter

Wow I can't believe the whole background is stitched on that fob I'd be seriously tempted to stitch it on a natural linen!
