Has it been over a month already?

So much for my idea of doing weekly updates - LOL!

And I have so much to share too. :)

One really exciting thing, I got a Round Robin back!! It's Chatelaine's Sampler Mystery I. Now all I have left to do is the beads.

It's stunning! And it'll be even more so when it's completely finished!! Now, the only thing I have to do is find the rest of the kit! ROFLOL Thanks SO much to everyone who stitched on this: Laura, Jodi, Dot, Veronica, Juli, Jennifer and especially Ming and Leigh who weren't even in the round but offered to stitch on it anyway. All of their initials are on either side of the house and my initials will go under the house when I'm finished. I will truly treasure this!

Speaking of mystery samplers, here is my progress on the Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler - I'm still keeping up, believe it or not! And I'm still loving it! The next part will be released in mid September. I can't wait!

And I have my scavenger hunt package to share!! We did a scavenger hunt in my Yahoo group and it was SO much fun!! I received from Jodi and she sent me a great package. She even started a sampler that I can use for a RR - I might make it into a "Scavenger Hunt" sampler and pick certain motif types I'd like stitched :).

So, my words were Paris (fabric and Ina Garten note cards), Dragon (little green bead), Lilac (essential oil with fragrance pottery, stitched motif and beads), Peacock (stitched motif and charm), Swan (stitched motif), Chef (spreaders) and Hedgehog (pin). She also got me a crochet hedgehog pattern from Etsy. I can't wait to try making him - he's too cute!!

My package was just received by Juli, but I'll show the pics next time - we're playing a game with people trying to guess the words :)

I am working on some other things, but I haven't taken pics yet - I figured if I had to wait until I got those pics taken, it might be another month!!

I'm up and running with my Bead Retreat business and I'm LOVING it!! It's definitely keeping me busy, and cutting into my stitching time, but it's so much fun, I hardly notice! I even have a website - YAY!!
