Half Way

This post is a few days past due, and I wanted to share with all of you the progress I have been making on Rosina-- the over 1 verse I can best explain is in 4 parts.  2 on the left, and 2 on the right.  I have completed the 2 on the left and see the light getting brighter as I near the end of this over 1 tunnel!! 

She has her name on the sampler now, which looks great too :)  I am taking the night off from stitching and will resume work on her tomorrow night. 
I spent one day this week with Grandma.  She loves a good hot dog all the way with onion, so I thought I would bring her lunch--- she says it has been almost 4 years since she has had one.  I am going to make sure that this dry spell doesnt happen again--LOL.   I also had tea and homemade cookies, along with alot of great laughs and deep talks.  What a great way to spend the day.  I look forward to seeing her again real soon.  She has recovered from the big party we had for Grandpa, and while Grandpa was there, he spent most of his time napping :)
One thing I wanted to share that I have seen at her house since I was a little girl, is the mugs that she uses almost daily, rotating of course from the others in the closet:
Dont you just love it?!  I keep threatening her that one day, I am going to put it into my big bag of crazy and take it home.  LOL.  No, I wouldnt do it, but I assure you it is very tempting.  I have looked and looked, but still, I have not seen any like this.  The search will not be over until I have my own.
I am fired up with all the comments and texts about my last post.  I am glad I wouldnt have been the only one LIVID with that stupid mistake.  Glad to hear it from you all!!!!  I know it is a busy weekend for most, and I am looking forward to updates next week!!

Have a great one, stay warm and stitch alot!!!!!!!!!

  9. Every time I see your Rosina, I fall a bit more in love. I'm SO very tempted to follow in your footsteps and stitch beautiful Rosina too. Problem is that I do love your color changes so very much and not know if I am able to convert it too. But at least I can enjoy your pictures :)
