My Fair & Square pieces

Hi! I finally uploaded a few pics from the camera and I know that Vicki already rec'd her squares from me. So here is the square i stitched for Vicki, JBW French Country Lark. It is stitched on 32ct linen, hand painted with beigy mottled look. This fabric was absolutely wonderful to stitch on and can't wait to find another project to stitch on it. For my name square i stitched a couple of the little birds from in the pattern along with a little heart, i thought it turned out pretty nice.

Here are the squares i rec'd from Vicki. I just love the colors and now need to decide how to finish it, maybe a pinkeep if i can figure out how to make one.

Well, it's been a rough week here for me but I am getting through it. I won't go into details but everything seems to be working itself out okay. I took a trip to IKEA across town (you need to pack a lunch for the drive). LOL It was an adventure going through that store with Aunt Cathy and Caitie. LOL We found a fold down desk for Caitie's room for $10, just screw it into the wall and it just hangs there until she pulls it up and puts the thingy up (just can't think of the name right now). A very good space saver. I also found a chair i want for our bedroom when we go and get our new bed. It will be a nice stitching chair for me when Doug is watching something i just really don't feel like watching (like hunting). Caitie did find a bed she wants as well, but we are going to keep looking.

I am going to try to finish a few stitching projects up, I am getting overwhelmed by the amount of WIPs/UFOs i have (they are not all listed on my blog yet). I need to just buckle down and finish them. sigh........... I will try, really i will. I hope.

Both pieces are gorgeous. I love those jbw designs.
I was dragged into the ikea store with my mom when I was in CA last year. They have a lot of great stuff to look at but I think their prices are a little high since most of their stuff is made with particle board.
I'm thinking about turning my next fair and square piece into a needle book.
