I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted! Where does the time go? Here is my first attempt at a biscornu, which is also my 2nd ornament for the year. I'm quite pleased with the results. The 2 buttons came from my mama's button jar. I believe they came from one of my childhood dresses.
I've been to Oklahoma City to see my dad twice in March. I spent one weekend with him and DH and I went on Easter for the day. Since my mama passed away the end of 2006, I've been trying to get there often to check on him.
On the first trip to OKC, I met DD and DSIL for lunch (the only time they could fit me in that weekend!) It was 2 days after her birthday and I'd made and decorated a cake (chocolate with buttercream icing, as always) to take. While on that trip I stopped by Heartland Needleworks, browsed around and met Carla, and picked up the linen and threads to stitch Where My Heart Blooms.
Work has been more intense than usual the past couple of weeks. Today was our year end, so hopefully by the end of this week I won't feel so drained. Even though I haven't made a lot of progress on any one thing, most nights I did some stitching, and hope to post a few more pics soon.
