A new start and a new GOAL!!!

So I got a new project.... and I started it!!  Yay!  Usually I am a little more controlled especially when I have 5 other projects and 3 of them have become UFOs... Anyways, I have always wanted to do something for 4th of July because I am really patriotic about my country; because of all the freedoms I am very proud and hopefully more freedoms are abound in the future not just for me but for others here in America and in other countries :D.  I have never really found a piece that called out to me like "Lady of the Flag" from Mirabilia.  I of course, thanks to my new job, was able to get all the items I needed from the pattern to fabric and all the floss and beads!   I had envisioned what fabric would look good because I wanted to see all the details, such as the beads pop off the fabric.  I believe I have chosen the right fabric - 32 count Twilight Blue linen.

Floss Toss:


Now the goal is to be finished by 4th of July!!  Which is in t-minus 14 days!!!  And the progress is after a few hours like 4ish... Either way this is my new project that I will be working on for the next 14 days.  *crossing fingers* I will finish.

I know I haven't been stitching or updating anything in a very long time.  I have been busy looking for a job and I have finaly received one.  I have been working over a month now and I was able to get some stitching stuff.  As I may have stated before, my mermaids had to be laid to rest out in the ocean blue, lol. If I haven't a quick synopsis will do:  My niece drew on my stitching with a permanent marker.  She wanted to show her artsie side hahaha.  Anyways, I have a new job and have been reinvigorated with my stitching!

I bought a couple of fabrics:  32 count Amsterdam Blue, and 32 count White Chocolate.

Here is a new start and a little progress on Mermaids of the Deep Blue:  2 weeks of Progress!
