Mes Girafe is now safe in a drawer until it's time to frame it. I'm playing with fire (fur???) leaving it out!
Today I'm doing a floss toss for a Harvest/Fall exchange piece I'm doing. My first! Woot, Woot! I'm very excited about that and can hardly wait for Tuesday when I find out who my partner is. I have some Gentle Arts Limited Edition mystery colours that I received (as a freebie) with an order that will work perfectly for the chart I've chosen. I'm also doing more organizing in my stitching room, AGAIN! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I swear things like this are genetically programmed! Why else would boys want to go shoot at each other and girls want to go for mani's and pedi's! My DH and I actually censor TV and video games (no 14A TV or movies or T or M games in our house!) so it's not like he's desensitized or anything. Oh well, he had a blast, it was great excersise and he enjoyed showing me his one "war wound" or welt, whatever you'd like to call it.
I organized my 2nd spare bedroom, which is also the library and stitching room, this week. I now have so much credit at the used book store that I had them put my dad's name on my card so he can help me use it up. My dad also spray painted this small tool storage cabinet for me Heirloom White so now I just have to figure out what stitchy things I'm going to organize in it!

Thanks to Daffycat for the great advice on project photo taking! I think this photo turned out way better than previous attemps.
I went to my LNS yesterday and got my Nymo thread so I'll do the beading on Frosty Blue House today and take it to the my local quilting shop to find some pretty backing fabric for finishing. I was also inspired by this post on Daffycat's blog and bought paper bunches to make my own floss tags. Too cute!
Also, more very exciting news, to me anyhow. I noticed I have 3 more new followers of my blog! In one day!!! Woot, woot. I find that hugely exciting. Thanks for reading and Happy Stitching!

I'm still trying to figure out how I want to finish this into an ornament. I'm not sure a pillow ornament is the way to go. If I'm lucky enough to have one of you fabulous stitchers out there read this post PLEASE feel free to give me suggestions on finishing!!! I would love your input!
I could also use some help on getting a better, brighter quality picture of my work to show the detail and colours better. Any advice would be appreciated.
Today I'm going to get my fabric set up on my scroll rods and frame for my next project, Christmas by the Letter by Lizzie*Kate. I've never used scroll rods before so it should be interesting! Happy Stitching!
