Practice, Tribute and More

So here's what I've been working on.  It's all been embroidery lately.

This is shading practice:

This is my first of many Alice In Wonderland embroidery pics.  I'm getting all the designs from  So here's the Chesire Cat:
Here's a printed fabric embroidery that I started before I found out about this August Stitch-Along on Feeling Stitchy.  So I guess I'm stitching along with the rest of them:

And the last one is a design I found on Urban Threads' website.  I wanted to embroider this because just last week we got bad news that my husband's good friend was murdered (stabbed).  We just went to his funeral this past Thursday.  It's been really shocking and sad.  So I embroidered this as a tribute to him:

I'm not sure I have the motivation to finish the shaded flower or this cross with roses, but I'm for sure going to finish the other two. 

So that's it. 
RIP Chris.  You will be missed.


  1. Yikes. Sorry to hear about your husband's friend. That's awful.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your husband's friend!

    Your embroidery is looking great! I've been embroidering almost non stop the past 10 days here at the hospital. Everything's going well, I'll post pics soon!


Tell me what you think. Thanks!
