So there is a new to me art form which I have totally fallen in love with , it is called Zentangle's. I have alway's envied those who posses the ability to draw. It was something that I just could not grasp, heck my 7 year old can draw a better stick person then I can LOL ! I am running to town today to pick up some watercolor paper and some nice new fine tipped pens to give this a go :) If you would like to see what it is I am talking about check out some of these blogs :)

These are just a few of the wonderful blogs out there for Zentangles. Have a great day everyone !

Mug Rug Tutorial

While surfing tonight I came across this wonderful tutorial of how to make a mug rug. I seem to have lost my stitching mojo this past week or so, I have just been so tired that nothing has caught my interest. I may give this little cutie a shot though the tutorial can be found ---> Here

Back to Twilight

I have picked up my Twilight again and it will be my focus piece until I get page 3 finished off ( it has a nasty yellow tint in this photo - don't know why as it does not look like this in person). If it's not finished by this weekend then I will take a break from it Saturday and Sunday to work on Lissandrea for the SAL. There are 3,564 stitches in this page !! I better stay off of Facebook if I want to get it all done in 5 days ;)

Here is my update on Lissandrea - this is week 1 of the SAL from the 123 Message board. I am so happy I got page 1 finished off and now i am starting to block in page 2. I worked on her a little bit Friday , all day Saturday and a tiny bit this morning. I have to say that so far this SAL is helping to keep me motivated on her, I like devoting Saturday's to her. I may go ahead and up it to all day Saturday and Sunday.

I have pulled out the block for the CQ RR - this is Susan's block . I really need to get my butt in gear as Friday it needs to be in the mail for it's trip over the pond to Janet. I really don't know what I am going to do yet - I am off to go check out the blog Pin Tangle for some idea's :) If you click the blog name it will bring you there

Terra Fairy and a Ornament

This is what I was able to finish on Terra this week, not as much as I had hoped for but I am a little over 1900 stitches so i am fairly pleased. Only 600 more stitches to go before the top 3 rows are done :)

I was also able to get my febuary ornament done this week - well the stitching anyways. I think that I will be finishing this as a flat padded ornament but I need to get to Marden's in Waterville next week and pick up some trim, cording and a tassel.
