Devil's Head

UGH Finally after two hours of climbing and a two hour
drive it's over! I am done I climbed to the top took the
pictures and climbed back down!. Yes I did not take
pictures of myself but I did get the boys to hold still for
a minute and got pics of them so here they are at the fire
 lookout on top of Devil's Head!

this is Wyatt - he's five and he carried sticks all the way
 up and halfway back down again until he slipped and
 fell and then I umade him put them down for good! He
didn't even fall behind until after he fell!

Dalton who hates pictures and complained more
 then I did all the way up!

This is Cauy he did so well, better than I would
 have thought -this is the kid who eats everything
 and sits and plays video games the whole time!
 I couldn't even keep up with him until after he fell
 on the way back down!!!!

This is Cody and Wyatt - Dakota kicked my butt -
 he basically ran circles around me the whole way.

It was a great trip though the kids loved the view
 and all agreed it was worth the hike and the drive
 ( dirt road, Durango - and a girl afraid to drive on
 dirt roads! LOL We went 10 mile and hour for
 7 miles!) Here is some of the pictures of the view:

And lastly the proof of the time hiking and
how many steps it took to get from the bottom
to the top!

Found it!

I finally found my camera so here are a few pictures of the Mime's the Word Needlebock: Details are- stitched on Gold Silk Dupioni, with 100/3 silk, Au ver a soie six strand silk, Krienik, HDF ribbon, Finca floss and pearl cotton, and DMC cotton floss. Lining is a burgundy batik and a teal batik for the pockets, and Burgundy Wool felt for the needle pages. 

Here is my current picture of the Turtles I am stitching for Mom for Rhonda, Mom will do all the finishing. I am just doing the stitching because it is quite small. The large turtle shell on this fabric is 2" across! Like I said very tiny turtles!

Crystal Ball....where is my camera!!!!

I have been looking now for almost three days! I can't find my camera anywhere!

I can only tell you that I am making progress on the turtles for mom, and Mette is underway ( and looking awesome!) I also started a new project for a wall hanging so I can learn new crewel stitches. I am using the Anchor Crewelwork book - 30 drawn designs and about 50 stitches, so I better learn a lot! 

I also finished my Mimes the Word Needle Book today and it came out very well. At least I think it did and as soon as that pesky camera shows up I will get some Photo's on here! 

OH AND I won one of Pat Winters giveaways!!!!! Yeah!!!! I won the green and blue one - I adore it and can't wait to see it in person! I will post photo's of that too when the camera surfaces! 

Pat is still giving away some amazing things and you can still sign up on her blog, it is listed below in my blogs that I follow! Go see what she is up too! She always has great pictures and really awesome stitching to admire!

Mime's the word Finished Front cover.

I just finished putting the beads on the front cover for my Mimes the Word needle case. Now all I have to do is figure out if I want to stitch something for the back or not.....
