A finish and an exchange arrived!!


Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ Well, I finally got the picture code thing figured out but now Blogger will only let me post two pictures. :( I am baffled, not computer savvy, so there's not really a whole lot I can do. I will hopefully be able to post pictures tomorrow that I wanted to post today.
I got Mrs. O'Leary's Dairy Farm done! Yay! I had so much fun stitching this. I am not sure of the frame but I have a couple of ideas I am kicking around. Hopefully I'll come up with something that I will be satisfied with.




Yesterday the mail brought me my 4th of July exchange stitched by Becky K. I have had her reputation for her impecable finishing and I can see why she has that reputation. It is fabulous! She stitched me a littlein cushion and matching scissor fob! I can't believe she had the patience for all of those beads! She had each one cleverly wrapped like fire crackers. It was so cute and I wish I had taken a picture of that before I had opened them. Thank you so much Becky! I love them both!





I'm still in sort of a reflective state that I had mentioned that I was in. It didn't have anything to do with learning about the passing of the friend's husband as it had started before then. I hope that it is over soon.There are some things a person just does't want to "revisit" you know?

Well, I started working on the Virtues Sampler from LHN . It is going to be a lot of fun too! I hope I wil be able to add a picture of that progress.

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments, support , and friendship! It is really appreciated!! Thanks for visiting today and I hope you come again real soon!

"till next time,

Don't be a stranger,

Sharlotte

  4. The Dairy Farm looks great. Wouldn't it be neat to find some wood from an old barn to make a frame for it? Love the 4th of July pieces - lucky you!

  5. The Dairy Farm looks fab! I bought this pattern, threads and fabric because of seeing your progress. I can't wait to see your progress of the Virtue Sampler, as I'm working on that one as well.

  13. It is a beautiful finish! This must be a rendering of happier times before those cows started the Chicago fire- ha! Those cows don't look like trouble-makers to me. :) Poor Mrs. O'Leary!
