I seem to be posting more often than usual recently. No worries, I'll slow down now. lol! But I thought you might like to see my Catherine Maudsley. Got that border done. The next tedious part is the verse over one. But that's coming along. Sort of.
I just love that border! And it was much easier than I thought it would be. After doing it so many times, I had it memorized. lol!
Next up, Kathy, Nancy (no blogs) and I went to our LNS today to drop off some framing and pick some up. Don always does such an amazing job. He has a wonderful eye -- I usually end up going with whatever he suggests. And recently, it's always been "how about this?" and the first time it's perfect! Anyway, here is my Paradise Lost by Plum Street Samplers.
And here is a closeup of the frame. I wish I could get the colors to be more accurate. The fillet (or whatever it's called) on the inside matches the colors in the piece perfectly!
And here is my Sarah Esh by Carriage House Samplings.
Here's the frame closeup -- it's perfect for the piece!
I now have 4 pieces on my Adam and Eve wall. Two more are with Don waiting for framing. I'm so psyched!
I got an award from Sherry! Thank you so much, Sherry! It means so much to me that you have become my blogging friend.
I had such a hard time last time choosing just 7 blogs to pass an award on to. I'm going to pass this one on to all my blogging friends. There are so many of you whose friendship I enjoy and whose blogs I love! So consider yourself awarded!
Finally, Deb over at the Thread Gatherer blog has a great giveaway!
I hope I win!!! I've wanted a beautiful flower frog forever! Deb, if I don't win, can I commission you to buy me one? lol! Anyway, go check out her giveaway, and her blog.
In other news, the girl child is back at college after a week of Spring/midterm break. It was nice having her home, but it's also nice having her back at college. lol! The boy child had a wonderful birthday on Saturday from the sound of it. He spent most of his day with his friends as opposed to the old people at home. I guess that's what happens when they start growing up!
The boy child will have his Spring break next week. The one thing I'm really hoping is that by the time his Spring break is over, we won't be waking up in the dark anymore. Have I told you how much I hate the time change being this early? Well, I really really really hate it!!!!!!!!!
I got the fabrics for my next Tessellations BOM quilt block in the mail today. So pretty! I'm going to have to work on that soon.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi, everyone! I hope you all have a great week!
