Happy Monday!

Howdy everyone!~ Did you all have a busy weekend? Our's was pretty relaxed. We did have an incident with our puppy Cassie eating Alex's bicycle seat! Boy I tell you , he was several different kinds of mad! We don't have anywhere to put it right now , other than the back porch. We are still waiting for the men who fixed the water heater to come back and fix the garage door, so we can't raise the door to put his bike in their. Hubby was finally able to get her to leave it alone. It will still need to be replaced though.
Do you remember a few weeks ago when I stitched a JBW Christmas design? Well, I finally got that into finished form and here it is all finished. I rather like it myself! :)

Ok, this is the last time on this one! I decided that the border looked a little "naked" so I went ahead and added the yellow flowers facing inward. Looks a lot better I think .

Got some more work done on the bellpull. I wasn't sure where I would put this once I was done with it. I got to thinking that Mother's Day is coming up and I still was not sure what I was going to do for my mom, soooo.... I think she just may get this as a gift! I will still have the pattern should I decide to stitch another one for me, which I undoubtedly will someday.

I just love this little bird!

I'm about 3/4's of the way through to finishing it up. It's been a fairly quick stitch actually. It got faster once I got the corrected pages. Thanks again Maria! Still thinking about what fabric I will back it with. I'll probably take it to the fabric store like usual to match it up since I don't have anything that will do right now I don't think.


Well that wraps it up for me today . Thank you all for your continued visits and for all of your wonderful comments. They truly make my day!

'till next time,

  1. I love your JBW triangular finish Sharlotte, particularly the use of two different coloured ribbons...I'm definitely going to give that a try - thanks a lot!!!

  5. I think that the addition of those flowers really added something! And you did a wonderful job on finishing your ornament. Can I send some things to you? LOL Can't wait to see your finish on the bellpull - I really like the colors that you're using.
