I had planned to post these pics last night, but after we ate dinner, I didn't feel so good. I think I ate too many "goodies" yesterday! ;-(
First, let me share the lovely gift Karen gave me yesterday..... I ADORE it! She had stitched the same design (different finish) for an exchange at the Pals Fall Fling. I went nuts over it then, guess she remembered! Thank you again Karen, I LOVE it! And it was packaged so cute I hated to open it - well, almost! ;-) Karen also makes the cutest cards/tags, and the gingham on the card matches the finishing fabric on the back - too cute!
Isn't it great!!
And this is what I stitched yesterday afternoon while chatting Karen's ears off. I would have had it finished before she left, but I left out 4 stitches in the middle of the scissors - had to rip it out & fix it. I did that & finished it up within 45 minutes after she left. It's from Pin Pokes I by Homespun Elegance and a QUICK stitch. It's on a 32 ct Lakeside small cut using GAST's floss (yes, I changed the colors a bit - what's new?!) Not sure how I'm going to finish it yet, but I'll decide soon. This will be the last finish for 2010 because I hurt my left arm and don't think after working all day on the computer that I'm up to stitching tonight. Might have to watch one of the movies Karen & talked about on my iPad via Netflix... that way it won't "bother" Ray since he's busy tonight.
And last but not least is JBW Designs French Country Angel. I finished this just before Christmas & I will make an ornament out it - maybe tomorrow afternoon. It's on 25 ct over 1 and I changed the word from "Angel" to "Believe" using the word from a freebie - I'll have to look for it & edit the post later. I LOVE how it turned out. One can never have too many ornaments - or angels!
Thanks for stopping by & hope you have a happy, healthly & very blessed New Year!
