A Finish and more

I know it has only been a week since I posted this as a WIP but I have him finished. Of course there is more to add to the vest but this 1st part is done. I decided to use some Krenick 032 to back stitch the smoke to make it stand out more and give it a little sparkle. It doesn't show that well here but it does in real life.

I am so excited because earlier this week I found some long lost patterns that I have been looking for in my stash for over a year! Now I can start yet another project for Christmas. It is a pattern from Stoney Creek, a stocking showing the Sugar Plum Fairy from The Nutcracker dancing in the dreams of a little girl. My mom has asked me to make this for the baby daughter of our masseuse. She is turning 1 in just a few weeks and this will be something fun to work on for her.
Well school starts around here tomorrow so there is some hope that I will be able to get some work soon. My son starts his senior year of high school and just as I am getting used to that I also have to through in his starting to drive as well. Where has the time gone. I know this year will go by faster than any other and he will be graduating and turning 18 before I know it. I am very excited for him and feel confident that he will succeed in everything he sets out to do.
I think I will take advantage of the husband being off at work today and spend my afternoon stitching and watching classic movies that drive him crazy. And tomorrow I will put all my 4-H projects in order for the year. One less thing to worry about each month.
