Slowly Stitching

Its been a busy week and I've managed to squeeze in a little stitching here and there not enough to make me happy though.  I've noticed I've been a little grumpy when I haven't gotten my stitching in.


I have been working away on Teresa Wentzler's 2nd Byzantine Ornament, I just have backstitching and beads left.

I finished another ornament and I've got a few more in the wings, I just wish I had more time!

Students promoted at black belt testing

This weekend was full of Taekwon-Do stuff!  Saturday was black belt testing, I wasn't testing this time around but I was helping out Tasha with parts of her testing.  Also my buddy Jason got his 4th degree!  That's a big deal!!!

Me & my Little Tiger students

Today, was the Santa Clause parade in the town where I go to Taekwon-Do.  I was on the fence about going, but since my little tigers were going to be on the float, I kinda needed to be there.

I'm anxiously awaiting my Christmas Holidays!  I can't wait to be able to just stop for awhile.

Very pretty ornaments. I love how the blue and purple stand out on the gold Byzantine ornament.

Hope you get more stitching time this week.

I know just what you mean about getting grumpy when you have to go a day or so without stitching, Dani! If I don't get some stitching time and treadmill time in each day, my anxiety level goes way up!

Love your ornaments and the little mouse is one of my favorites. I've already stitched it once, but I'd love to do it again for a friend.

I'm sure your little Tiger students just adore having you as their teacher :)

Lovely ornaments!

All my crafty stuff keeps me sane. Literally. I'd be on anti-depressants or something otherwise. *twitch*

Rachel said...

I am loving the ornaments! I never thought I would say that, since I said I would never stitch ornaments, lol. I love how the colors just pop against the goldish tones. I am on the last one right now, then I will be finishing them off.

I get grumpy too, when I haven't had my stitching time ;)

I'm glad you had time for stitching! Really nice stitching and finishes. And Congrats to the black belts who tested this weekend! Your little tigers look so cute all dressed up warm with their dobuks on the outside. :-)

Lynn said...

Wow, this TW ornament is even prettier than the previous one! Love the little mouse one too.
It looks like you were all bundled up well for your ride on the float. Hope you enjoyed it!

Sally said...

Both your ornaments are beautiful Dani.

Blu said...

The TW looks fabulous! And the mouse is so cute.

I love the Byzantine ornaments you're stitching, they're so elegant. I love the little mouse too, what a cutie :) I can't wait for the holidays either, time to relax at last! Take care.

Your finished ornie is so cute, and the byzantine is looking great.
