Rainforest Crunch by NeedleDelights
Violets by Laura J. Perin
Fierce by Orna Willis
Not sure of the name but by Carole Lake
I guess I have officially converted to needlepoint. My love of cross stitch was never those x's but always the specialty stitches and the play of color. Since I work with color every day, it was a natural fit. These are my latest finishes.

New (to me) Nail Polish Discoveries

This is a very non-stitchy post but, I have come across some of the most amazing nail products that I want to spread the word about.

I polished my nails Sunday night and today is Wednesday. It is usually about this time that I am removing my polish because of the chips. As of today, I don't have one single chip or scratch in my polish and it is just as shiny as the day I polished my nails.

The first new product is called Bonder by Orly. This is the base coat that I used. It is sort of a gel like product that adheres polish to the nail.
I used two coats of OPI polish. The second new product is the top coat I used which was Seche Vite . Oh my, I have never seen anything like this product. It is truly amazing. By the time I got finished putting this top coat on my nails, they were dry. Not tacky dry but dig around in your purse dry. I have seen reviews on these products where the manicure lasts for 14 or more days. Get. These. Products.

I am in no way affiliated with these companies (except I do sell OPI in my store). They are just great products!

My Forest is Growing

I am having nightmares that my fabric isn't big enough. I need to recheck it.

Louis Boyd

A very special man in the hearts of many went to be with the Lord today. Louis Boyd passed away around 3:00 today. Louis meant so much to my Church. At one time he was the youth pastor, then left, then came back and filled many different shoes, eventually taking on the role of Associate Pastor and Senior Adult Minister. Louis touched many lives throughout the world. He led my dad's funeral and was there by my mom's side every step of the way. It was right before my dad died in 2001 that Louis was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. He fought it every step of the way. He is now healed and rejoicing in Heaven!

Postmaster Elf

After snagging some Oatmeal thread last night, I was able to finish my elf. I will use this piece for the seminar class on stand ups I am taking in June.

Meet Aurora

Meet Aurora. This is about 600 stitches. Well, I guess this is her garden, not her.
