Happy Easter, finishes and a WIP

Well, first off, Happy Easter to everyone! Hope everyone has a wonderful day. We will be going to my Aunt Cathy's house for Easter, ham, potato salad, kielbasa, pasta salad, etc on the side dishes, then there is desserts. Desserts will be peaches n' cream pie, fudge brownie bites and a cinnamon butter pound coffeecake and mini cheesecakes. Will definitely have to go to the gym this week. YIKES!

Well, I do have a couple finishes from this past week. I stitched "The Goblins" by Shepherds Bush, it was a kit i had in my stash forever and just decided last week i wanted to finally stitch it. It also had the mat with it so i will definitely take this one to the framer.

I also finished French Country Bunny by JBW Designs this week. I stitched it on 28ct french latte linen using Carrie's Creation floss in Tropical color. I am still going to stitch it with the waterlilies that i actually bought for it but didn't have the right piece of material for that color to pop, i do now have that piece thanks to Tracy in AZ. It is a piece of evenweave that she tea dyed herself and it is perfect for it.

Lastly, here is my WIP that i have been working on since Thursday night. It is LHN's Schoolgirl Lessons that i just got last weekend and again i found a different silk in my stash that i liked better than the one i bought. I am stitching this one on Lakeside linen in V. Lentil using Belle Soie silks in "Mer Blue", it is the perfect color for this piece. Hopefully i will have this one done by tomorrow night.

And here is a pic of my niece, of course she is eating (the only time i can catch up with her) LOL. How can you say no to that face?

Happy Easter!!

Wow, you got a lot done on your current wip since we were together, it's looking terrific! Your bunny is very cute too. That SB piece is awesome, I love the mat too, can't wait to see it framed. I will definitely have to get that color of Belle Soie, I have a few charts it would look great with.

It sounds like you have a great day of delicacies in front of you. Enjoy!

Your finishes look great and the blue silk you chose for the Schoolgirls lessons is beautiful.

As for that face, too cute and I wouldn't be able to say no either :)
