Sorry everyone that my posts have been so sporadic of late. This week has been really tiring. I finished up my class module and now have three weeks off, which I can sure use. I have been continuing with my weights in my workouts. I am also officially on vacation for a week (I go back to work the day after Christmas) as of 5 o’clock today. I am just so tired. I haven’t stitched at all this week since Monday. Does that tell you how tired I am? But, here is my progress on my Winter Snapperland so far. I am almost finished with this part. I have the trees, some smoke, and stars to do (plus eyes on my snowman). And you have to go and take a look at this French blog. She turned her Winter Snapperland into a cube. I love this idea!

I will probably end up just framing mine. But, she even gives you a tutorial on this blog so you can make one too! And since I have no progress to show you really, I thought I would throw in another finish from earlier in the year. I made this purse for my wedding. I beaded the entire thing and then attached the frame. I’ve never done beading to this extent before, and I’ve never attached a purse frame to anything. So this was a reallll learning experience.

I stitched on satin with little seed pearls and then used gold delicas for the initials. The fabric it is laying on is fabric for my wedding quilt which I intend to get around to one of these days.

Also, I just wanted to make everyone aware of two things…first, I (among others) am unable to leave comments on beta blogs for some reason. I can only do it if your blog allows anonymous comments. Someone please tell me I don’t have to sign up for a freaking Google password in order to fix this. Secondly, I appreciate all of my fellow bloggers and I have so much respect for those of you that are stitching gifts or even sending cards to each other this season. I am not doing either, so I hope that no one is disappointed or feels neglected if you don’t get something from me. I am doing good to get gifts for my family. And my time is so precious these days, that I just can’t spread myself any thinner. So, I hope you all understand. That’s all I know for today…I am off to try to finish reading Labyrinth (it’s good, go get it).

I am grateful for the love of my life.

  1. Not to be one of the “herd” but it IS a beautiful purse. Well done! And you can pass it down to your *ahem* daughter. :o)

    Happy Holidays Michelle!

  2. Nice purse! I haven’t done much beading, other than on cross stitch projects

    Don’t worry, I’m not sending out Christmas cards either. Too much stuff going on right now.

  3. Ohhh it definitely sounds as though you need some R&R (rest and relaxation time){{{hugs}}}

    Your beading is fab – and your purse just gorgeous!

  4. I would never, ever have the patience to make a purse like that! wow.

    Winter Snapperland is coming along and I love the cube – thanks for the link!

    And I realised when I upgraded to beta blogger no one would be able to comment, so don’t worry about me! 🙂

  5. That purse is GORGEOUS! I wouldn’t have gotten done let alone the delicate beading you did! Lovely!
    But all your projects are perfect 😀

    Don’t worry about gifts, I’m not sending either so we can be in the same boat!

  6. Your Winter Snapperland is almost finished and looking great! I love that cube idea. Nice and compact. 🙂 And your beaded purse. Wow. I can’t even express how gorgeous it is. A real showstopper! You did an incredible job with it. I hope that you are relaxing this weekend; you deserve it! *hug*

  7. Wow – now that purse is impressive – I keep wanting to dip my toe into the beeding world, but just haven’t had a project really catch my eye yet. 🙂

    Hope you have plenty of time ot relax on your vacation!
