I've finished This is the Day!
I'm very pleased with how it came out. So are my bears. Sorry, this is my poor excuse for an art shot. I don't know how you ladies do it, taking gorgeous arty pictures.
The other thing I don't know how to do is to put down in a different font the name of the piece, the fibers and fabric used. I'm sure I actually know how, but I'm too lazy to try it out.
So you'll just have to suffer with me. This is the Day is from the Just Cross Stitch January/February 2009 issue. It was designed by Tracy Riffle of Hands to Work. I used the called for 40ct. Autumn Gold linen by Lakeside with the called for GAST, WDW and CC fibers. And I love it!
In other news, the boy child is away for the weekend. He's attending his first ever scenario paintball tournament. He's in it bigtime -- camping out, taking part in a 2 day event. He was so excited when he left. Here's a picture his friend's father sent from his cell phone.
I hope he's enjoying the tanks, the scenarios, the welts, the mud, the wind, the cold, and everything else that I just can't get into myself. But that the boy child lives for. :D
The girl child is still at college. She's happy this weekend too -- her boyfriend went down to spend the weekend with her. There's a Freshman Formal that they're going to. On Friday, the boy child was obliged to carry a bag to school containing the girl child's dress so he could give it to the boyfriend to take down to the girl child (the boyfriend is a senior and goes to the same high school as the boy child). (Did all that make sense??) I'm sure the boy child got rid of the offending bag asap! I don't have any pictures of the girl child or the boyfriend at the Freshman Formal. I do hope she takes some pictures.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! And if it's spring break time around your area, enjoy that too! Ah, the green is starting to show outside! Yay!
