Happy Dance Going On!!!!!

Yes this afternoon there was some Happy Dancing going on in my family room:

The deer picture for my DS is complete!!! I am heading over to House of Stitches on Tuesday to get this framed. Hopefully still will be able to have it done for Christmas for the DS. I was so happy to get it finished. Hope he likes it.
So what's a girl supposed to do after finishing such a big project. Start in on something else!! My ANG group is doing a stitch along with the Stitch of the Month provided by ANG. We started back at our September meeting and I need to do the first three months to get caught up before our next meeting the first Saturday of December so here my progress so far:

I can tell all ready that I am going to love this project. Of course I enjoy Sue Reed's design's so there was no doubt that I would. I am actually stitching this on a green canvas even though it looks cream.

I want to wish all my American Stitching Sisters and Brothers:

A Happy Thanksgiving!! We are going to visit the DS on Wednesday till Sunday even though he has to work it will be fun to see were he is living in WV.
Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,

Recovery Stitching

I am two weeks post op and have been doing some stitching during my recovery.
I finished across in this area:

Started the last pass across:

This is how much I have to go:

Once I get all the way across the Happy Dance can start!! I do think it will be completed and framed for Christmas!
I am so thankful that my surgery went well. I still have to remember that I am healing though. I drove for the first time today and boy that was tiring. I have been so surprised by the wonderful cards that I have received from my stitching and church families. I hope you all are getting plenty of time to stitch.
Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,
PS I apologize for taking so long to post. I had intended to post last week but crashed into bed very early :(!
