I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments on my last post. I just love them. I have started to put together a giveaway for having 600 followers, which just amazes me. I do know that the giveaway will include a flower frog , scissors and a little something made by me. There will be more, just don't know what yet. On to the stitching...
Finished up this little gem and am having it framed in a pink frame. Something different and very Spring like.
Had this piece stretched and I put it in my in and out frame.Below is a close up of the frame.
Stella is going to daycare 2 days a week for puppy socialization. They say she gets along wonderfully with people but is very shy around the other dogs so I decided to send her another day. She did much better on the second day. She will go 2 days a week for awhile. While she was gone I managed to get in alot of stitching time and some yard work. I finished the Prim Sisters piece. Cheryl will finish it when she comes home from Canada.
I also did this little piece that I can't wait to have finished. I really love this scissor pillow. I got the finishing lit so that the pillow will look just like the picture. So cute. >
Easter week end was quiet. I went out to brunch with friends and had some quality stitching time while watching last years Nurse Jackie series.
This is Blooms for Sarah from BBD. I love the design and it worked up quickly because you use just one floss. I did mine on 36 ct mystery LSL using the suggested SNC called Chocolate Caramel. So yummy. lol. You can click on any of the photos for a larger view. I did take a cooking class last Thursday night. They gave us a lovely dinner before class and then we made cupcakes! There were 10 women in the class and we worked in pairs. Joanne went with me.
We made chocolate cake filled with a peanut butter filling topped with chocolate gnache and crushed peanuts. They were awesome. The others made red velvet, carrot cake, lemonchello filled with homemade lemon curd and a chocolate vegan banana cake. We all took home everyone's cakes. It was a great time.
I will end with a picture of my baby. Isn't she cute? The bone she has in her mouth is one she can eat but she needs to carry it around awhile first. Thanks for visiting. My next post will have the giveaway. Until then....Happy Stitching! Deborah
