Treasure Quest

Hi All,

 It has been 2 weeks of stitching on Treasure Quest so it is time to post a progress picture & then change to The Astronomer for his 2 weeks of attention. I have also taken a picture of my TUSAL for this month. I know I know I'm late. In my defense I am stitching instead of taking pictures on time. I also added a photo of my stitching buddy Brandi. You should try to stitch with a 65 pound Irish Setter in the chair with you..She is pretty good though she lays still & keeps her head out of the way. I can't say the same for all the exotic fibers that end up in my stitching.

RIP Rene La Frog

Sad news. This week we lost a dear friend & fellow stitcher Rene La Frog to cancer. She will be greatly missed in our stitching groups & by her family.
From now on every stitch I make will be dedicated to Rene because of her love of stitching & her willingness to help anyone who asked.
With her permission I borrowed this from Mel L's blog.

January 2011

Wow, I can't believe it is 2011 already. Why does it seem that time goes faster the older you get. Seems like summer was just yesterday & now it is the middle of winter. We had a great Christmas & a quiet New Year.
I had the week between Christmas & New Years off so got alot of stitching done. It's amazing what you can do when you don't have to worry about going to work Then again have to work to pay for stash. I finished my 2 week rotation on Train of Dreams & on January 1 I started Treasure Quest. I know I'm crazy but I can't help myself. Spangler's work is so addicting & the little dragons are so cute. So cute that I ordered 4 more of them. HAED was having a 30% off sale & what girl can resist a sale. I got Eldar, Afternoon Tea,Curl up with a Good Book & Medieval Shelf. I also picked up Christmas Presence for my Santa collection. Without boring you further here is my progress on Train of Dreams & my start on Treasure Quest.
I have also taken the last picture of my TUSAL for 2010. It has been emptied into my huge jar & is ready to start over for 2011.
