Drum Roll Please for the Hippie Chick


Here she is!!!  I worked on her yesterday and today with all the back stitching and french knots.  I was very ill yesterday and I am not exactly sure why but putting stitches in helped to keep my mind off my stomach pains.  I am so glad she is done.  I am thinking of how to do the edges and then stitch her to my vest.  Stay tuned......

Meanwhile, a neglected project was Just Nan's Scissors Roll.  I went back to it today and started to work on it.  To start with there are five of these little panels.  The first is done except for back stitching. 

We survived a bad storm that came through yesterday.  It didn't seem all that bad but when we tried to leave our property today we discovered that a tree had fallen across the driveway.  A quick trip with the chain saw and we were on our way.  Thank goodness it wasn't a big tree.  The big tree that hit this little tree didn't land on the driveway - - otherwise we would be stranded until the big tree guys had been able to get to us.  Now our weather turns cool, crisp and nice for fall.

Congrats on finishing Hippie Chick. I'm curious to see how the needle roll will work out (I also have this one in my stash :-).
Have a nice day!
