Well, i have decided i really really need to whittle down my WIP basket next to my chair. I counted and there are 33 wip's in there. I am a serial starter and that's what happens when you are. LOL Well I started Earth Sampler by Primitive Needle just over a week ago (so not really an old WIP) and finished that one today. BUt while stitching on it this past week decided to just reach in the basket and grab out a bag. Whatever was in it was getting finished. Sooooooo, the winner was Always & Forever by LHN. I pulled that one out on Thursday night and finished by Saturday.
I stitched Always & Forever on a piece of 32ct mottled linen i had in my stash (no name on it) using Belle Soie Rose of Sharon. This is for Doug and I.
Earth Sampler was stitched on 40ct Lakeside linen V. Autumn Gold (yummy fabric and color) using the called for Weeks and Gast. I also changed 2 of the colors as they didn't show up on this fabric and used Crescent Colours for those 2.
I have also reached in the basket again today and drum roll please.........It's A Wonderful Life by The Sampler Girl was the winner this time.
Also, i rec'd yesterday a beautiful Emery from Amy in SC. I made a wish on the MAW board for an emery and Amy fulfilled my wish beyond anything i had imagined. AND, Amy stitched it in pink. Amy doesn't like pink and she even used pale pink (which she really doesn't like). Thank you sooo much Amy. I love it! it is gorgeous!!!
Here is a picture of my oldest daughter, Brianna (20) and my niece Allison (3) on Easter (and Ally's birthday party too). I really liked this pic so thought i would share with everyone.
And, Caitie had her senior prom 2 weeks ago and here is a pic of her and her date.
