Men Should Come With Directions

I'm a huge fan of Emerson Quillin and his "Listen Honey" series. All his women are super sassy & fun. I have a couple dozen of his cross stitch charts in my stash and I've started buying the rubber stamps to make cards & bookmarks. You'll see "On A Clear Day, I Can Shop Forever" in my cross stitch slideshow. Yesterday I started "Men Should Come With Directions". Doesn't she remind you of a southern sistah with braids & a church hat (lol)? Of course, she's gonna be a pillow cover.........

Tommorrow, more work on Peace Angel.

Wings of an Angel

Not much progress on Peace Angel but I am enjoying working this piece. Dental surgery recovery is coming along slowly. Gum and bone problems required total extraction and stitches were removed last week. Now it's just healing time until the implants can be inserted. My body just wants to rest and sleep but my mind & hands want to get busy with needlework and craft projects. It would be great to finish Peace Angel during my hiatis as a reminder of all I'm going through.

In the meantime, it's easier just to knit so I finished this scarf for youngest daughter. I loved this Andes Wool yarn when I bought it, but the striping does nothing for me. Daughter loves it cause her favorite color is green. I still have 2 skeins so I will try making a felted bag to see if the pattern excites me more.
And finally - a funny sent to me by my Aunt Eunice

Stitch A Long

I've joined the Lavender Angels SAL for encouragement with the Peace Angel. I'm on a 3-month leave of absence for some extensive dental work (you don't even want to know) so I'm looking forward to making great progress now that I'm out of the Percocet haze. Stay tuned for progress pics and send plenty of prayers for quick healing........
