WIPocalypse Update #2

Time for an update! Have to say I am pleased with my progress this past month. Ladies and gentlemen.... we have 2 finishes!!!

First finish of 2012:






Tina's Stocking-Shepherds Bush, for daughter-in-law Brandy!

Second finish:




Keslyn's Vicki's Essence

This is a late add to my WIPocalypse list. I have had my eyeball on the chart for several months. I confess... every time I went in to the Golden Needle, I would gaze at the chart.... but several weeks ago, I found the perfect piece of fabric and the rest is history. I love this piece! Too bad my photographic skills do not do the piece justice (I'm working on my new camera skillz... bear with me!!)

RIP Whitney Houston. You had an amazing voice and presence in our lives. Life did not treat you kind. I wish you peace and happiness. Adding my own editorial here, and please, do not think me cold and heartless, as I truly believe we all have the ability as well as the opportunity to pick our pain... and our joy....ie: choices... I am deeply saddened by the death of Whitney Houston, but do we really need entire news/entertainment shows dedicated to her life/death? Wouldn't it be nice if we spent this much time talking about and honoring our solders who made the choice and are killed each day, protecting us, our rights, our safety, our liberties, instead of focusing on the wasted talent of a drug addict who, like you and I had the ability to make a choice?

It's an unusually cold and breezy day on the Gulf Coast. Off to a surprise birthday party for a dear friend this afternoon.

Happy stitching!! xoxo ~~m~~
