A finish & another great Saturday!

First let me show you my LHN's Simple Joys that I finished Friday night.  I know I mentioned before that I changed the top portion just a bit, I didn't care for the gold box around the words, so I moved it all up a row or two and left the box off.  I also didn't put the "lines" on the windows.  I am quite happy with it & happy to have finished it.  It shouldn't have taken 2 weeks, but I was busy with other things too.  It's stitched on Lakeside 32 ct Vintage Buttercream using the recommened CC/WDW threads.  

On Saturday, Nicole, Karen & Faye came & we spent the day stitching & chatting & having a good time.  (And yes gals, I did end up starting our new project last night, couldn't help it.)  It's all thanks to Faye for helping me pull the threads for it!  Gotta blame it on someone, right?  ;-) lol  I'd almost be willing to bet someone else started or was at least VERY tempted to start one too huh? ;-)  I made pincushions for each of them on Friday evening, and made one for myself too.  I so enjoy sewing, just wish there were more hours in the day for all the things we so enjoy, don't you?  Karen's & Nicole's match their totes/zipper bags I made for them a few months ago.  Karen's has the birds/green, Nicole's is on the bottom right.  The botton left was for Faye & I have the one on the top.  It's also made from Nicole's fabric so she got to pick the one she wanted, I took the other.  I like them all personally so was glad I didn't have to choose! ;-) Anyway, we had a good time & look forward to doing it again soon.  I'm sure you'll hear all about our new project soon.  We have big plans for it (thanks again to Faye!). 


I have big plans for today with some sewing, so wish me luck!  First we're going to visit my parents for a bit & then home for the afteroon.  Hope to have something to show you soon.  :-)


Thanks for stopping by & HAPPY STITCHING, sewing and creating!!
