TUSAL and WIPockalypse

Yeah, I'm behind on my TUSAL post, but considering this month just vanished on me plus I'm getting things ready for the baby, I'm slightly distracted.

So, here's the TUSAL picture:

All that pink and green is the last of the commission piece and the slightly darker bits on top of that, is the little bit of the Haunted Mansion that I've been working on:

There's now part of a tree next to the house with some clouds above it. *grins* I'm going to enjoy working on that. I also put about ten stitches in Clara, but I didn't feel it was enough to take a picture of. Mayber next time.

The Commission Piece...

.... IS FINISHED!!!!

excuse the slightly fuzzy pictures, but I was taking the pictures while it was laying flat on my table.

Now to get back to what I want to do. Of course, this did teach me a great deal about commission work and what I need to set firm in the future for any other comission pieces.

Important Commission update!

After much work, I am pleased to announce:

The couple is done!!! Now all that's left is the arch of flowers and the names and date at the bottom!

October WIPockalypse

Okay I'm trying something new to see how well it works. It's Picasa which is Google's photosharing page and hopefully it will work since I'm getting very tired of Photobucket and their multitude of glitches.

First up is a pattern I totally blame Demeter for at Sense and Stitchability. This is QS Clara from HAED and all the black in her is perfect when one has a three hour doctor's visit. (It was the gestational diabetes test I had to take and that involved sitting around for three hours while they sucked me dry of blood.) Clara here is being stitched x1 on 28 ct Aida and yes, I'm insane for doing it that way. *grins* But she's going to be a bribe for someone to convince them to follow their dreams instead of letting others drag them down again.

Tada!! On the Commission front, the bride and groom both have heads, are mostly backstitched (totally in the Groom's case)and I've started on her hair piece and flowers. Then it will be the arch of flowers above them, name and date and I can call the lady to exchange the picture for cash. Woohoo!!

And finally, the traveling baby blanket is done! Now to just get it to the recipient while starting a new one for myself. Originally, I was going to claim this, but I didn't like how all that green was sort of splotched on there. I thought there was going to be more pale green and blue than what was really there. Ah well. *grins*
