World Grand Champion Start

Thank you for all your comments to my blog posts and for reading my blogs. I really enjoy reading everyone elses blogs. As you can tell my Blog Roll is growing and growing!

This is my progress after 15 hours of stitching. It's quite detailed but fun to stitch and now the horse's face is done the rest is going easy. I had to frog a lot on the face but faces were never my thing. I always have a rough time with them.

We have had so much rain this past week but we needed it so bad. I think we had more rain the last few days than we had all spring or summer. We were suppose to have a Steak Fry today but the people hosting it had no power for 2 days. They were suppose to get it back last night or today. I just hope they didn't have to throw too much food away. They buy the steaks and all the other food themselves and ask for no help from anyone else. But that was my first thought "Oh no I hope they didn't have all the food yet!"

Next weekend is a big weekend as we are having a family gathering. My brother and sister-in-law from MO were going to come in but cancelled as he got a new job and has to work next Sat. We figured something would happen to prevent them from coming it usually does. But the rest of us are still going ahead with our plans and are going to have a good time without them.

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

Well, details make a piece look stunning but sometimes it is so painful to stitch ( and frog ;-) ) I don't know that one so it is going to be nice to see it getting bigger !!!
