A Finish.....


This is Country Cottage's "Garden Girl" & I've always thought it was just so cute! I decided to stitch it finally after seeing Nicole's piece in her Flickr album when she was here last month. I finished it up Sat night & I already have a frame to put it in. As you might notice, I changed a few of the colors around to suit myself (didn't want the word "grow" in green & I liked the 3041 better for the border!). I like how it turned out. It's stitched on 32 ct Light Examplar by Lakeside, my fav fabric!


I had a relaxing weekend... I knocked off work early again Friday & we took Hannah swimming. Nicole asked sometime Friday evening if she could come & stitch/visit on Sat. so of course I said yes. It's always great to have Nicole over. We had promised Hannah to go back swimming Sat. afternoon, and Nicole had to leave around 3 anyway because her DH had plans that evening, so it all worked out for all of us. We had a great time stitching & talking and wow is her stitching amazing. She was working on "The Riddle" & It's more gorgeous in person that in any of the pics on her blog! We slept in on Sunday & then went to visit my parents & went swimming again, and ended up with a very slight bit of sunburn. No idea why, it didn't seem to bother us Friday or Saturday. We will be taking a break from the pool for the next couple of days & hopefully the weather will be nice enough to go back later on in the week. The friends who own the pool will be home from CT sometime around the end of the month & we don't like to impose when they are home, so we go as often as we can while they are away. The pool is just wonderful & I so wish we had one like it, but I don't see $25000/30,000 dropping out of the sky anytime soon. Oh well.....


Back to stitching, I picked "Heaven Doth Ask" back up yesterday & did a few stitches. I'm not sure what's "next", but I'm sure I'll decide on something soon. In the meantime, I'll work on one of my many WIP pieces!


Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week & happy stitching!

What a cute finish Amy - congrats! Right now most pools by us are too hot - they feel like bathtubs! It's not too bad in the early morning or evenings though.
