Coca Cola Santa

Hello Everyone, Decided it was time for another update,  Santa has been going quite well until a little frog came along.......Isn't amazing what can happen with just one little misplaced stitch, As you can see quite a bit, I replaced everything that I ripped out and now  I have laid Santa aside for a little while and I'm working on some Prairie Schooler ornaments from book #24 Prairie Birds.  For one the stitching is more portable and I plan on taking it with me as DH is finally going to a specialist tomorrow for his kidney stones.  I'm sure they'll be doing some tests so that means lots of sitting around..  The kidney stone thing is old hat with him as we have been doing this for years, I'm just hoping that this will be just ones of those where the stones just have to pass.

My Winning

Hello Everyone,
I won a giveaway from Cathi's Stitching blog http://cathisstitchingblog.blogspot.com/
and I had to figure out where to take the pictures of my winnings and finally put it on my desk.  I had thought I should have my little seasonal cat that she stitched for me hanging up but didn't have a place to do so.  I finally laid it on my desk and I think the picture came out pretty good.  Thanks so much Cathi!  I hope that you all will  visit her blog, lost of nice stitching to look at.

Finally Doing An Update

Hello Everyone,  Finally an update,  Things have been rather busy here my DH has passed 4 kidney stones within the past 2 weeks and just before that I had surgery.  So that is part of the reason I have been quiet. It has been really super hot here too  highs in the 90'sF and even one day 100.  The heat isn't so bad but the humility has been awful, like walking into a blast furnace even at night.    I have been busy stitching I've  stitched 4 small samplers by Homespun Elegance.  Really fast to stitch the all have charms on them but I still need one for the sampler with the flag. I have now gone back to my Coca Cola Santa at least until I decide that I am going onto something else.  The Santa is one stitch of this and 3 stitches of that!  Anyway here are pictures of the samplers and Santa.
