I finally got something back from the framer. I have been such a slow stitcher of late that I've been having "pick up from the framer" withdrawls. For a while it seemed, I was finishing and framing constantly but not lately. Fortunately, I didn't have to take any drugs to get over the withdrawals because Sue came through - I finally got back BBD's Petites Lettres Rouges which I stitched in honor of my maternal grandmother. I love the way it turned out and it is now hanging happily in my home with some other small samplers. You know this, I'm sure, but if you want to really examine my stitching you can click on the picture to get a larger than life version. On second thought - don't do that - nothing ever looks as pretty up close as it does from a bit of a distance!
I am also happy to report that I have been stitching - albeit not very quickly. I started the Birds of a Feather Friendship Sampler on Monday night and boy, are the colors fun to work with. Here's my progress so far - I don't know where I'll put this because the colors do not really reflect those in my home but who cares??? It's gorgeous!
The other WIP I have going is the other BBD freebie, Souvenir de Paris. I got stalled on this one because I ran out of floss. I remedied that with my trip to the NSLLNS last week but haven't picked it back up yet. No, I've never been to Paris except in my dreams which had something to do with a very sexy frenchman under the Eifell Tower but that' s best kept to myself! I have some pretty pink velvet ric-rac that I'll put to good use on this when I finally finish it.
Not much else going on, my friends! I hope you all are well and livin' the good life! We have graduation parties to attend this weekend so not sure how much stitching will get done but I will be putting at least a little time in on something. Have a great weekend - do something FUN!
