This and That

Things have been busy here (but aren't most summers busy?). I finally got too tired of my night job and quit. Now I'm looking for a new job. My Husband isn't getting many hours with His job so He is also looking for something better. It's kind of stressful but thank goodness for savings accounts. LOL.

I did manage to finish this butterfly card this weekend.

And I started this little rabbit card.

I have only added a few stitches to my 4 seasons birds.

And I'm getting frustrated each time I try to work on my HAED Letting Go. It is so big and awkward. I had it in my floor frame for awhile but the frame is only 22" and this fabric is 25". You can see where I folded it on the right side. Because it was folded it made the tension off and the left side kept slipping out of the rods. I tried stitching in hand but it's so much fabric! So today I am ordering a new frame. It's a 36" frame. It will definitely hold this and I don't ever see me stitching anything bigger than 36"!!!!

After taking this picture, it hit me how far I have to go! The part I've worked on is just one page.  I really want to spend more quality and quantity time with this WIP. I hope the new frame helps.


  1. Lovely stitching progress! I'm glad you have some minis to help offset the big projects; that always helps me. I hope the new frame helps, too. Good luck with the job hunt!

  2. Great stitching progress and good luck with the frame. Good luck with the job hunt as well!
