Latest Project and PhotoHunt

I was going to pull out Tour Des Marques and work on that but when I saw I only need one more HD to hit 55 for 2009 I pulled out Lettres A Mon Chat by Isabelle Vauthier instead. I figure this is fastest stitch I have on the go. If I think I'm not going to finish it by New Year, I'll have a little ornament kitted up ready to go instead!



Today was certainly a day to stay indoors! We had hoped to go out shopping and hit some of the Boxing Day sales (need a new purse), but the freezing rain kept us in. We did loose power for about 2 hours, and as it was getting dark some of our trees came down. I'll try to get some pictures of the damage tomorrow when its light.

This PhotoHunt theme is : Book(s)



Students reading in my library. I love seeing the kids like this!

Good luck with reaching your target, I can only dream of having 55 happy dances in one year! You've made such a great start on Lettres, I'm sure you're in with a good chance.

You really completed a lot this year! I love your current project. I wonder what book are the girls reading. They seemed so concentrated. I hope not too bad damage done and will keep a look out for the pictures.

Good luck with stitching, that's a beautiful design, I love these cat designs by Isa Vautier :)

I love your cross stitch!
Hope not too much damage done on your back yard.
Here too the freezing rain kept us in during the Boxing Day Sales, but tomorrow is another day...

55 finishes, wow. Love your latest.

Good luck on reaching 55! You've made me curious how many I've finished this year. :)

Happy New Year!

Oh, and yes, that picture was my little man. He is almost 2 now. I can hardly believe it. :)

That photo is a delight! As a former English literature teacher, it warms my heart to see any member of the next generation reading from a good old-fashioned book. Computers are wonderful, downloads are great, kindles and nooks are convenient ... but there is absolutely nothing like the feel of a good book in one's hands

I have three children whose noses are constantly in a book! I also think there is no other sight to warm a book lover's heart than that of children and young adults reading a real book. I am glad you stayed safe through your storm Dani and hope your tree damage isn't too bad.

Dee said...

Sorry to hear about the ice storm. Snow is lovely, but ice .... just dangerous. Glad you are all safe and hope there wasn't too much damage.

We're expecting rain --- again!

WoW! 55 Finishes. And I was thinking if I got one thing done this year, it would be good!
Just Kidding...I may have gotten three finishes out of this year.
Sorry you couldn't get out and take advantage of those sales. Darn Mother Nature anyway.
Happy New Year!!!

Ranae said...

I love this design with the cats.
You have really made a dent in your stash with 55 finishes, way to go!!!
We had freezing rain a few days ago and it was not fun.
Stay in, be safe and stitch

Good luck on reaching your target, I'm sure you can do it. Wow, 55, that's a lot of finishes. I love your project Letters, I'm sure you can get it done by the New Year. Sorry you missed on the sales due to the ice, hopefully you'll be able to get out before things are to picked over.

Get Todd to bring you early on the Thursday and then you will have lots of time to get #55 done before the new year!

Tama said...

Nice cats!
I hadn't seen that one before.

Julie said...

Lovely design.

Giovanna said...

That's a lovely project, I'm sure you'll make it!

Kathy A. said...

Oh Dani - that is so pretty on the red. I have no doubt that you can have it done for finish #55.
I hope the damage from the ice is not too bad.

Brigitte said...

Your cats look terrific, and I'm sure you will have your 55th finish this year.
A wonderful picture of those students reading at the library. As a hobby librarian I love to see them this way.

Suzanne said...

I hope you get your 55th finish for the year. I must say that's an impressive number.
