Uh, Next!

May's Ort Report:

“If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried”


That about sums it up. Maybe next month.

And I don't blame Mr. Ortolan for being a bit peeved at me. I am too. I'm blaming it on the vampires, Igor and zombies oh and the Blob while we're at it too! (medical stuff).

Lots of Stitching Catch-up and a Birthday!

First off, today would have been one of my utmost favorite actresses' birthday - she would have been 85 years young - Audrey Hepburn:

If you love gardens, flowers or just enjoy seeing Ms. Hepburn, then definitely look into Gardens of the World dvd set - a true family favorite and classic & timeless - the trailer above shows a bit of the dvd set.

Now on to some stitching - mind you, lousy weather and funky camera makes for wonky pics!

Frosty Forest - don't ask me what that weird coloring is in the bottom left section - doesn't look that way at all in real life.

Tradewinds - you can barely see the start of a dolphin in the bottom section.

And Seashell Silhoutte - except the fabric looks totally wrong!

This is the correct fabric color!
And that's it for today folks :)
Thanks for stopping by :)

Mr. Ortolan Says....

Where the blazes have you been?!?!?

Well, I've had a lot going on but I have been stitching and sewing - or at least trying to every so often - 

And that's probably about half of what should be in there too!

Of course, it didn't help that one of my attempts to wind sewing thread on a bobbin went bonkers! :)
