How Frustrating

I've been a bad blogger. I edited photos to post and just didn't get it done. There was good intentions though.

Last weekend I was at Dani's for a very lovely stitching weekend. There was much eating, laughing and stitching. Dani and Lynn both posted pictures - I was bad and didn't get the camera out.

I managed to get Beatrice's Mirabilia RR done. I spent pretty all day beading. There are 5 different colour beads in this little area and three colours of metallic thread. Hopefully this is enough bling for Beatrice

from Angel of the new dawn by Mirabilia

Once I was done with that I decided something easy was in order so I got out PL. It went pretty well, starting to see some progress on this section.

I also thought it would be a good idea to get the baby thing started. Dani and I decided that black would be a good colour choice. We pulled a couple blues but they didn't look right.

Today I went looking for a dress to wear to my cousin's wedding next month. No joy was had, I couldn't find anything I liked. It would probably be helpful if the things I tried on didn't make me look/feel fat. Sigh

It was so good to see you again Christin! I think we need to have these SALs more often.
Beatrice's Mirabilia looks gorgeous! Definitely enough bling.
It's good to see PL again.
Hope you are able to find something for the wedding. I hate shopping for dresses myself mostly for the same reasons.

You have done a great job on Beatrice's Mira - sure is pretty.
Nice to see PL again.
Why buy a dress - a nice pant and jacket looks just as sharp. I hate dresses myself and seldom/never wear one.

Beatrice said...

I LOVE IT!!!!Thank you so much ...yes enough bling.
It was fun at Dani's and I'm glad the others took some photo's because I didn't take any either. lol.
Pants and a jacket sounds like a plan!!!!Good luck!

Congrats on getting Beatrice's RR done! Glad you could come for the weekend.

Really don't let shopping get you down, you are way better than any poorly designed dress!

Great to see you again sis ;)
I hate clothes shopping too - I like Kathy's idea... might work
You are making good progress on PL... I actually pulled mine out the other day.
