The detail is in the confetti!

I'm still working on those confetti filled flames.  I'm hoping to have them done tonight or tomorrow so I can move onto the rest of the page.

Hello there!

I saw this guy early Saturday morning.  I don't know what kind he is, but if anyone knows, please tell me.

I made some nice progress on Lust last week.  I'm hoping to finish all the confetti in the flames over the next week or so.  Then, the bulk of the rest of the chart should be big blocks of color for the most part.

Dang, it's hot out there!

I think summer is here, with a vengeance!!  It's supposed to be 100 degrees here today and that's before you account for humidity.  Yuck!

Last weekend was hot but Saturday morning, we brought this lovely home from where it's been stored.  I would really love to get it running again and be able to drive it.

This is where Blue Moroccan Lace is right now.  I spent 30 minutes last night trying to decide on the next color to add and put it away.  Lust came back out instead.

Blue Moroccan Lace

I've made some slow progress on Blue Moroccan Lace over the last week.  We've had a baseball tournament which has slowed me down!

This isn't the outside border but it still matched up!

Since Photobucket is being a pain and wants to charge a lot of money to be able to use their photo sharing ability with blogger, I need to look for a new photo hosting service.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Anyway,  I finally made it to the end of the row I was working on in Heritage Sampler.

At that point, I needed a change  of scenery so I pulled out Star Spangled Banner from Northern Expressions Needlework.  I finished the stripe I had been working on last time it was out and started the next white stripe.  I was having problems with stitch placement so I started the next red stripe.  At that point, I decided I'd had enough of all specialty stitches.

Yesterday, I'd also worked on finishing kitting up Chatelaine's Blue Moroccan Lace Mandala.

Here's what I've got.  My helper approved!

I hope to get a start on this tonight but there's baseball, so maybe.
