My shoulder and hands have still been giving me trouble, so not much to show in the stitching department. Even this tiny finish had to be mounted in Q-Snaps and then to my lap frame in order for me to finish it....
This is from the chart, "Be True, Be Kind" by Homespun Elegance
it is teeny tiny, measuring just 2 1/2 inches high by 2 inches wide
my favorite part of stitching this was doing the colonial knots, I've never been good at French knots, these are much easier for me :-) My friend Jan (hi Jan!) once filled in, with french knots, the whole area of a bunny tail on a design for me, that's how much I disliked doing French knots, and that's how good of a friend she is...to jump in and do somethin' that you *hate* for you :-) Luckily for me, since she moved to another state, I learned how to do the Colonial knot, and actually enjoy it! But she's still missed. A lot!
So anyhoo, getting lots of stuff done around the house since I can't stitch...organizing the stitching closet, getting ideas going about paint colors for the dining room, kitchen, sun room....DH is all over the idea, helping chose colors. He's also been full of energy and happy about doing lots of stuff around the house, lucky me! I think he's feeling a lot better these days and I'm so thankful for that!
I've also been thinking about changing my blog name. When I first started this blog, I was really into cupcakes, and when trying to think of a blog name, thought of all sorts of crazy things....anyway, I think we'd just been to the State Fair of Texas, and you all know one thing State Fairs are good for is coming up with different things to DEEP FRY every year, so that was fresh in my mind as well. Hence, Deep Fried Cupcake. Do you know, I just thought that was such a random thing, but it's really NOT! There IS such a thing as a deep fried cupcake, if you google it, you will see for yourself. One site made me laugh, it's called something like "this is why you're fat" and showed a picture of an actual deep fried cupcake!
SO yeah, I'm thinking maybe I should change the name....is it just too silly and random for a "stitching/pug/baking/who really cares" blog? Your thoughts?
