Finally got Fred done to go with his girlfriend. Here he is in all his glory.
He's Frederick, of course, by Carriage House Samplings. Here's his mate, Fredrika.
Both are stitched on 40ct vintage Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linens with the called for NPI silks. I love them! Aren't they perfect for fall?
I also got my Fruit of the Spirit (Plum Street Samplers) back from my LNS. I'm really happy with how it came out. The owner's husband Don does the framing and he's always so helpful with picking out the perfect frame.
Here's a closeup of the frame. Isn't it perfect? I love it!
As you may know, I've been participating in the Sail Away SAL which is being lead by Loraine and Terri. Terri sent all of us SALers a wonderful fob to get us all on our way. Now that the SAL is ending, Loraine has sent a nice present, a stitching wallet. I got mine in the mail today -- and I'm so tickled! Here it is, along with Terri's fob that she made for us.
And here's the other side of the wallet.
She included a wonderful sheet with all of our names on it that also has a space for us to record when we started our stitching journey and when we finished. Isn't it wonderful? Thank you, Loraine! And thank you to both you and Terri for such a great SAL!
In other news, it seems to be homecoming weekend around the country, including here. The boy child is in seventh heaven. Two of his friends who left for college this fall are home for the weekend, so he's off having fun with all his friends. I know I won't be seeing much of him till Monday night.
The Father type had to go to a function last weekend up north a bit. Turns out it had great views of the Hudson River. Just look at it!
Pretty nice, huh? They were apparently way up high on some mountain or other. You can see the Hudson in the distance down there.
I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
