Various things

I have various things to report and show this blog...
1. You have heard me mention my friend Marie Paule numerous times...well she has 2 sons who run a company called www.fogolabs.com . It is a recording/production/DVD/music company. I am not entirely sure what all they do but whatever it is, they obviously do it well because last weekend they won a JUNO for the best Music DVD of the year. The artist is Billy Talent. Go on their website and you will see other names in the music business you recognize.

2. Yesterday I finished Pretty Pumpkins (Glendon House designs) and I am terribly pleased with myself. 3. Last weekend I took a little break from the over one stitching and stitched up these Celtic Beasties (Ink Circles). I used the suggested Carrie's Threads and these two are done in the bright colours version. There is also an antique colours version but for some reason I just felt like wild colour combinations and I am pleased with the results.

These two are the griffon and the stag. I think this weekend I will tackle the peacocks and the dog. They were quick and enjoyable to stitch! and they bring up my ornament count for the year. Last year I only made about 3 ornies all year and I missed having some at Christmastime so this year I will not be in the same boat!

I better have a talk with Marie Paul... I LOVE Billy Talent! I have both of their DVD's. I think I need to meet those boys of hers! Get to rub elbows with music clebs on the Canadian scene. LOL

Your beasties look great!

It looks like a good day all around! Congrats to Marie Paul and congrats to you for finishing the pumpkins - they look great!

I really like those celtic beasties. How big are they finished? I would do them in a more traditional celtic colour scheme though.

Your friend must be very proud of her boys! Congrats to all.
Those Pretty Pumpkins are sure pretty! Love the beasties too. Your needles have been flying!

Thanks for letting me know about the Kingston guild event. If you could email me the details that would be great. I'm not working that Saturday and just might be able to head up there.
