Did you all have a wonderful relaxing weekend?! How was your Thanksgiving dinner?!!! Anyone go to boxmart or Target on Thursday night for fun, and walk off some calories?!
Just in case you were wondering, we had a great weekend!!! Went to my cousins on Thanksgiving for the best dinner ever-- she is such an amazing cook and we played with the girls for hours. They are soo cute-- they both have the biggest eyes and longest eyelashes!! We left there and went home and put on a movie and I stitched a bit. Friday we visited again with my family. They had just gotten home with a Christmas tree and were looking forward to decorating it and the front lawn with lights. So cute, the baby who just turned 1, scooted over to the tree and would touch the branches ever so slightly, turn around and look at you with the biggest grin......then clap her hands :)
The biggest news I have to share with all of you this great weekend, is that I have 2 finishes to share with you. Yes, 2. The first I finished yesterday afternoon is Quaker Study by Carriage House samplings. Stitched on 40ct vintage examplar from Lakeside with SNC. I have had a love hate love hate relationship with this piece for sometime now and am more then thrilled to get it done. I had this problem a few years back with another piece that I had started, loved the piece but couldnt stand working on it. Why is that?! It is a great piece and I already have the frame picked out, but wow, what a bugger.
What a lot of work she has to her, the bottom left side square and middle square are solid satin stitch and there is some over one, but mostly full cross. Alot of color changes. I am super excited about this finish!!!!!! She was a joy to stitch, and I looked forward to it everyday. I am also ecstatic that I have 2 more under my belt for 2011!!!! It has been rough going :)
So the biggest question is--- what is next?!
