Writers Block? Blogging Block?

Well whatever you want to call it I seem to have it, time to get over it and post my stitching works - warning this post contains a lot of wrinkles! - without further awaiting first up -
Violet's Blue
Blackbird Designs
30ct Iced Cappuccino - R&R Reproductions Linen
GA WDW & CC threads
(waiting on threads to finish)

Sweet Humility
Carriage House Samplings
40 ct Pear - Lakeside Linens - NPI Silks
(long and skinny this one, just how I wish I was)

.... hmmm I know I put that magazine somewhere ..
well as you can see it's a bear with flowers, I know he's
an Anchor design and he's from Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine
if anyone really wants to know more information I will hunt down the magazine for you
and let you know what issue - I did this as a gift to my daughter for her daycare graduation
or leaving daycare starting school  (awaiting framing).
14 ct light blue Aida with DMC
 Tea Shop Cut Thru Design
Bothy Threads
So close to a finish, oh and it would be so nice to have a finish on this one.
More tree to do, backstitching and french knots and a darn good wash and iron needed!

Whoo hoo, I did it!  I think I may have gotten over my writers/ blogging block - I have started a Scarlet Letter Sampler called the Christmas Sampler, will show that next time.
