Greetings dear blogging buddies!~ Wow, I know it's been a full week since I last posted. Been having some personal issues that I am trying to work through and life gets crazy sometimes when you're trying to do that. I wanted to at least hop on here this morning to show my "Where My Heart Blooms" finish. It will be a while before I can get it framed but I am so so happy that I was able to stitch it. Thanks again , Catherine, for your generous loan!!!
I would have preferred to have stitched this on linen, but I didn't want to wait until my next trip to the needlework shop , which is about 40 miles away. I decided to stitch it on evenweave so I could start on it as soon as the pattern arrived. I dyed the thread for the house, with the exception of the bright white, for the same reason. All in all, I am pleased as punch with it!
Other than the stitcing on this piece, I have worked on and finished a gift, and have been planning my next exchange pieces, I signed up for 4 more!! Plus I also started a bell-pull. I'm not real crazy for bell -pulls but have wanted to do the one I'm working on ever since I first layed eyes on it. Photos of that to come later this week. * crossing fingers* I also need to get some more stitces in on that giveaway piece before you all think I've abandoned that idea. : )
That will do for this short little post edition . Thank you all for your continued visits. Come back real soon.
'till next time,
don't be a stranger,
