July's Ornament

Ahhhh... what a wonderful day! I'd like to think that the sun and warmth came out just for me!!! Of course it would I'm on vacation! Unfortunately Hunter (brat cat) wouldn't let me sleep in this morning. It was lovely to have the house to myself, I walked up street to the General Store where I pick up my mail... enjoying the sunshine (which has been sorely lacking all summer). Fingers crossed this weather will continue while Mum and I are in the Adirondacks!

I had a good stitchy day, by lunchtime I finished up my July ornament. It was nice to have an HD so early in the day!

I have spent a fair amount of the day working on my dragon as well (who will have a name tomorrow I promise!). Since I have an HD to share, I'll save a progress picture for tomorrow. I had an alarming moment this evening when I realized I've almost run out of the dark blue Kreinik braid for my dragon!!! However after a little MSN messenger session with Christin she's going to give me some of hers since she's not to that point yet with her dragon, Slow Poke. So tomorrow morning I'll meet her in town, to make the trip worthwhile I think we're going to try to see Batman in theaters.

Earlier this week I finished up a framing job for a friend of mine. She picked it up last night so I can share this with you.

Hi Dani,

I'll add my choice of name for
your Moonlight Guardian, just
for fun, and suggest Luna.

I can't believe how fast you're
stitching on this design Dani.
You're just zipping along. The
black highlighting really make
the dragon become three dimensional, doesn't it? Although just the blue stitching by itself is an interesting effect too.

Congrats on winning a Brilliant
Weblog award. It's well deserved.

Your little beaded sheep ornament
is very sweet, and will add a
nice bit of sparkle to your tree
this year. Can you believe that
Christmas is only five months
away now? And Hallmark have the
first lot of their Xmas ornaments
out now.

Hope you have a wonderful two
week vacation Dani. It sounds
like you're going to be very
busy during that time. Hope
the weather is good, and you
have a wonderful time.

I'll be starting two weeks
vacation when you return from
yours. I'm looking forward to
it too.

Have fun!!
