Happy Fathers Day to all of you great Dads-- I spent yesterday with my Dad, and later in the evening, went and saw his Dad who is 89. Simply amazing right?! We had a picnic on Saturday with my Sister and her Husband and as usual, had a blast. It was great to see them, and share a few hours together out of all our busy schedules. I will have to share some of the good eats tomorrow with all of you :)
I am proud to say I finally finished The Bramble and The Rose by Ink Circles. What a difference a few weeks make. Well, and putting in stitches when ever there was a pause. I was so desperate to get this one finished, I was even stitching on the way to work in the car, and late into the night. I finished it on Friday night and couldnt be more excited!!!! I think this one has been over 2 years in the making :)
So this beauty is stitched on 40ct Meadow Rue Lakeside with overdyed silk from a Friend. Isnt it GORGEOUS!!!!!!! Very different from my usual sampler routine, but a fabulous addition. Tracy did a great job designing this one :) I am looking forward to the frame this summer for sure.
I completed another piece over a week ago, but that one will have to make its blog debut next week or so. My friend and I decided to stitch a design using Fibers to Dye for, and I am positive they are both great. We havent shown each other the finished pieces yet, nor do we know what they look like but it is only a matter of days.............I hope!!! I cant wait :)
I did pick up from the January Crazy challenge One Blue Bird by Goode Huswife, and I should have this one wrapped up later today.
It is my Mothers Birthday today---Happy Birthday Mom!!! Also, another friend of mine-- her birthday is today as well-- Happy Birthday to you too!!!!!
Until next time!
