dance to the abc's...

I've got a lot to share and not sure where to start! I'll probably do a couple of separate posts so this one doesn't end up waaaaayyyyy toooo long!

First off, I have my second official happy dance of 2011... the first one being the little mitten ornament I did... this one is a little bigger...

I managed to finish off my LHN Coffee and Tea series last night... here is a close up of the Caffe Latte...

I'm so happy its finished, now to just get it framed... I already know what I'm going to do with it once its framed...but that will come later. Not sure why, but this last block gave me the most problems, I seem to have the least amount of thread, almost running out of two of the colours and frogging like crazy! (though I guess that would account for almost running out of thread...)

Next up, my older niece decided she would like me to stitch her a fairy for her birthday in March... she picked Mirabilia's Sweet Pea...

So I pulled out some fabric, and the threads and I started it tonight... good thing its not that big of a Mirabilia and that her birthday isn't till the end of March! But my younger niece heard that I'm stitching her sister a piece so she would like one as well... she would like a princess (so far) so we will be stash diving on the weekend to see if I have anything she likes, and then that will be a new start somewhere down the line too... only problem is her birthday is roughly 3 weeks after her sisters... so we'll see if I get them both done in time.

And now that we've danced, its time for the abc's of me! I've seen this on several blogs, and I have been thinking of doing it, so here is a good as time as ever!
