A Revelation

I know at the beginning of the year I had these big plans to participate in the Wipocalypse, TUSAL, IHSW and other very fun and wonderful blog activities, but as I am getting older and more set in my ways, sticking to a regular schedule to do anything is just too much work. I will definitely keep sharing and I hope you all will continue to come and visit.
Okay lets start this post with a little update. Since my last post the 2016 Woodlawn Needlework Exhibition has ended and I was able to bring Idelia Mae home along with my ribbon, which I am so proud of.
Yes it's third place but a first for me, I'm very happy.
That's enough of that, lets get on with what I know you all really came to see. FINISHES!!
Of the wips I shared previously I have a few finishes
Share Faith -Erica Michaels
Embroidery Guild - LHN
Dare to be Daniel - Silver Creek Samplers
I Will Be There - The Snowflower Diaries
Bunny Love -The Snowflower Diaries
Adorable smalls - Casa Mia
 Yes, these are all finishes since my last post, but I also have these that I made some progress on.

Connie Gee's Mystery SAL (15) Diamonds
Three Kimonos - Joan Elliott
There are a couple of new starts to look at too, this one is the first of twelve in a SAL from The Snowflower Diaries. The fabric I purchased last year at a retreat and I thought it was perfect for a snowy January.
January - The Snowflower Diaries
"M" is for Mother

I have decided to change the name to "M" is for Minnie and I also changed some of the threads to DMC flosses.  Well I guess I'll stop taking up so much of your day and go makes some more little xxs. See you next time.

Idelia Mae looks beautiful with her ribbon; kudos to you! Love all your finishes, and your WIPs are coming right along. I think that M definitely does stand for Minnie!

Oh, Minnie -- I can identify with what you say completely! I dont' feel bound to adhere to most rules anymore -- now if I could deal with the guilt of NOT following the rules I would be in great shape. Congrats on your aware -- your work is beautiful -- you deserve it! Don't worry -- I am not going to quit visiting.
