I haven't shown you my eagle and hummingbird projects lately, so I thought I'd do that this morning. I've begun taking Mondays as a free day, so I can run around with Wes if he's running errands, or I can run around by myself, if he doesn't want to go anywhere. I went to the fabric store and Wal Mart. I wanted to get some fabric, so I thought I'd check the fabric store first. I can't afford the fabric shop unless I join their shopper's club. So I went to Wal Mart and found several things I liked and had to choose just one. I hate having to choose; I wish I could have bought all the pieces I liked!
Here is Wes's eagle. I've gotten the wings finished, finally. That wing on the left nearly drove me insane! Now I'm down to the tail feathers, and they're not quite so bad. I have no idea how long it will take me to finish this, but I'm happy with the progress I've made in the past month.
And here is the hummingbird. I'm thinking I may be able to finish this one this week. It just has one more bird and the backstitching left, and then I can do say I've finished something!
I'm also trying to do one Christmas ornament a month, but I didn't get one done in April, so that will officially begin in May.
I have this book that I found at a thrift store or a dollar store, can't remember which, and it has some really pretty ornaments in it, all designed around themes. I started a mini sampler set from it Saturday night.
