Stitching Progress & Photo Hunt

I had every intention to blog this weekend, but I ended up taking things easy with stitching, naps, oh and a trip to the gym with a good friend.   The weekend started off really nicely with a wonderful pizza & beer dinner out with Todd, oh my goodness it was heaven!

I do have a Happy Dance to report, but I can't share it.  I know, I know its sad.  Its the first of my two giveaway gifts!  It was fun and colourful!  Now to do finishing and a 4-Day weekend is coming up!  Yay!

I am missing Enchantment of Winter, working on my giveaway pieces!  I did start the over one and here's a closeup of it for you.

Aren't the colours just awesome in this piece?

Here's the PhotoHunt for April 16th the theme was "Road"
I picked this photo awhile ago and you know what I really can't remember why?  I just know its a gorgeous view and wouldn't it be fun to drive a sports car down that road?

Of course you want a Zeus update right?  This is my new favourite picture, of Todd and Zeus!

Oh and congrats on your mystery happy dance. Enjoy your 4 day weekend coming up... I will think of you when I am working 3/4 of it ;)

Adorable new baby! What a great picture of Zeus with Todd. I'm so sorry about Cuddles :( I was finishing my semester of student teaching and was away from anything not school related. I hope Zeus helps to heal your heart a little. *hugs*

Karen said...

Gorgeous work Dani! Enchantment of Winter is looking fantastic. You're doing great at the over-one stitching.

Enjoy your long weekend!

Zeus looks super comfy on Todd's shoulder. :)

Beautiful progress on Enchantment of Winter, Dani--that is one amazing group of colors!

Zeus is just so cute and tiny snuggled on Todd's shoulder--darling! I wish they would stay that size sometimes...

Enjoy your four-day weekend :)

Bette said...

Enchantment is gorgeous! And I can see why that pic is your favorite. Zeus is so sweet looking (an Todd's not bad either LOL!)

Bette said...

Beautiful work on Enchantment! The colours are really lovely.
Love the pic of Todd and Zeus!
I only get Good Friday off (which I'm working anyway) and not Easter Monday so it will be a regular weekend for me. Won't be long though before I have a permanent time off!

The progress on Enchantment of Winter is impressive ... over one is always so tricky. And your photographs are always gorgeous ... you have the "eye" for framing a photograph. Zeus is adorable ... he looks very comfortable with his human companion.

Zeus looks so relaxed - cats could teach us a thing or two!

Michelle said...

Enchantment of Winter is going to be gorgeous - well done on the progress so far! Zeus is so cute :)

Melanie said...

Heeeheee! I love Zeus. What a cutie.

geeky Heather said...

Great progress on EoW!!

Zeus and Todd...awwwww!! (Don't tell Todd it's a "cute" picture, just that Zeus makes him look very manly, LOL!)

Sheila said...

I look forward to seeing your happy dances and more of Enchantment. Zeus just gets cuter every time I see him and so contented.

Enjoy your Easter break

I love this dimples piece that you're working on. It's one of my favorites and has been in my stash forever....just never got around to stitching it.
Zeus is adorable!

Alisa said...

Hi Dani,

There's over one stitching on
Enchantment of Winter??? Yikes!!
Well, good luck with that. And
as a dedicated magnifier user I
heartily support and encourage
you to get that light/magnifier
from Ann as soon as you can.
You'll wonder what you did with-
out it/them.

Is that "road" picture taken
in the Dominican?? What a
spectacular view!!

Zeus and Todd seem to have
really bonded!! Sweet
kitten.

Cheers!

Gabi said...
