Well, I'm way behind on my framing. I have so many pieces to frame and no money! But I did manage to get 3 done at my LNS and I picked them up on Monday. I'm so happy with them! First off, here's Charlotte Clayton, the sampler in my heading.
The frame is a really pretty green color with a bit of the rusty color on the inner edge.
Next is Lois Minshall, which I dedicated to my mother. (Sorry for the poor pictures.)
I love the frame! It looks sort of green and sort of blue. So pretty!
And finally, Dutch Beauty.
I still haven't decided where to hang it, but I sure do love it! I'm not sure why I decided to go for the frame I did, but I'm happy with it!
Stitching was reduced to a minimum over the weekend with the girl child's birthday, but I finally got some stitching in come Tuesday. I neglected Rebecca Robinson to work on the Sail Away SAL. I'm loving how it's looking! And thank you Terri, for my scissor fob! (Terri made everyone in the SAL a fob -- unbelievable!) I forgot to take a picture of it, but I love it! It's so funny -- I didn't open the package for a long time just so I could admire the wrapping. :D
Finally, I did manage to make a bit of progress on Rebecca. As you can see, I'm still mired in the fill in on the big house in the middle. But I'm getting there!
This is such a pretty piece. I'm looking forward to stitching something other than the house! lol!
In other news, the girl child wanted to go into the city for her birthday and do some shopping. So that's what we did, despite its being one of the hottest and most humid days of the summer. I think the girl child was pleased with her purchases. And I enjoyed the people watching -- along with a tiny bit of shopping of my own. Here's the only picture that got taken -- at an open pizza joint. I have no clue what the name of the place was, but the pizza was wonderful! New York pizza is the best!
(Yes, my poor father type is usually the one behind the camera. I need to change that -- I hate being in pictures.)
I hope everyone has a great TGIF Friday and an even better weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
