What Has Linda Been Doing?

As you can see I have been a very busy little bee. Today I made six scissor fob, two for Halloween and four for Christmas. I will be giving some away as gifts and keeping one Christmas and one Halloween for myself to use with canvases relating to the fob. I have decided to match my fob, magnet and snap tray to all my canvases. When I go to Amy's, in just about two weeks, I will have a complete Halloween theme for all my accessories. I will be stitching a Halloween Tic Tac Toe game board canvas by Liz of Tapestry Tent. I am even thinking of doing a Halloween frame weight.

The second picture is a name tag that I ordered from Amy's. Since I will be going to the ANG Seminar in Philadelphia and I need a name tag I decided to have one made for myself. I will post a picture when it is finished and then one when it is back from the finisher. Denise is having one made too but she is having her name tag made smaller.

The third picture shows my progress on the Summer Flowers canvas by Barbara Elmore. Denise and I are doing this canvas and we both have finished our backgrounds and stems for the flowers. We are planning on getting together to do the ribbon for the flowers and the beads.

We are going to have a fabulous lunch with wonderful cupcakes. It will be our BeStitched lunch at Denise's house.

The last picture is of my finished belt. It really came out great and has gotten use already.

I am taking it with me to Amy's with my leopard needlepoint shoes. I am so looking forward to this trip. It has been way to long since my last trip to see Amy.

My shoulder is coming along. I am able to stitch, which is really the most important thing. I still have restrictions and will be having a talk with the PT person tomorrow about my concerns. My major concern at the moment is that I still cannot blow dry my haiir. Going to get my hair done twice a week was a lot of fun in the beginning but it is really getting annoying now. It has been three months since my surgery and I am finding myself getting very frustrated with my limitations. Hopefully, tomorrow will bring some answers to my concerns.

Sorry to hear that you are not back 100% and jealous to hear that you are going to Amy's! You have been a busy bee and I love it all. Great job on the nametag. That is so cute.
Y'all have a great time in Memphis!
