Two weeks flew by Too fast

Work has kept me very busy but some progress has been made. Even a finish so I will start with that.

I finished stitching First Bass from Ink Circles Thursday evening. This was after I decided to take a day on vacation on Leap Day. It was a reward I promised myself after making it through the week before and month end close. I made it a special stitching day, and had hopes to head to Tulsa for a little stash therapy, but I was making such progress that I decided to stay where I was. So here is the result.

First Bass
by Ink Circles
finished 030212

So glad I didn't head to Tulsa as I will have to be there three days this week for work. I will get all my stash shopping done Tuesday and Wednesday evening and then head to my hotel room to stitch.

I do have a little more progress on Old Crow and should be able to finish this up while in Tulsa. Here's where it is right now.

My Victorian Skaters were stitched on a bit, but not enough to bother with another picture. It seems Sunday evening I feel quilty for not touching it all week and then stitch a bit before bed, maybe that will just be my process for this one.

I have an old counted thread project that I think I will start this week too, since I had a finish and then I have another crow piece to start when the Old Crow is done. That one is called Ida Mae (just happens to be my Grandmothers name) Crow from the Goode Huswife. I will pick up the 35ct Weeks Straw linen to get that one ready to go. I can show the patterns with my new starts next time.

There was fun with fish this week, as we added a new member to the tank. Since I have not shared about the fish before I thought I would show one fish at the end of each post, until you have seen them all.

This is Chubs the biggest one in the tank although
it's hard to really show how big he is. Maybe 7 or 8" long. He really looks more like
navy blue, but the flash bounces off his scales that are irridescent.
(Lithgow is peeking out from under him but I will introduce him later)

I tried to catch up on everyones blog posts, but only got through the most recent ones this afternoon. Always inspiring. Thanks, CJ in OK ;-)

Congratulations on the finish! I like your Old Crow piece, too. I want to do a bunch of crow and bird stitching and have Ida Mae on the short list to stitch, too. They're such fun designs!
