First off, the sameness. Here's more of the Richmond Sampler. I've been wandering through her, doing the parts I can do at this point.
I must say, she's looking fine!
Added a few berries to the bottom border.
And worked more on the interior. (Close up, those dogs look like llamas to me.)
And now for the different part. On Saturday, I wandered down to my LNS to pick up Jane Atkinson. I also picked up some stash, of course. :D Anyway, when I got home, some picture hanging and reshuffling took place. Here is Jane.
Sorry, had to use the flash. It's dismal and rainy out today. Here's a closeup of the frame. Hard to tell the colors with the flash.
Don, my framer, picked out the frame once again. He's got such an eye!
And thanks to the father type for helping me move my A&E wall. Isn't it glorious?
While at my LNS, I picked up Paulette's (Plum Street Samplers) Hallow Eden. I also picked up some 28ct fabric for it, figuring I would do the piece over one. But when I got home I discovered that yes, I had some 40ct in my stash too. So I decided to use the 40ct fabric (River Willow) with the called for Crescent Colors fibers (except for one DMC). Here's my start -- I couldn't resist, I need a quick piece for a change!
Here's what the piece will look like. Paulette, I hope you don't mind that I grabbed this pic from your blog!
Isn't it wonderful! I love the frame too! I might be naughty and not do my ATS today. :D
In other news, the girl child came home last week, but only for a few days. She got reacquainted with Mia.
Well, you get the idea.
The boy child had his Area All State concert last week as well. Pictures weren't allowed in the auditiorium and we had seats that wouldn't have been good for pics anyway. But here he is outside the theater after the concert.
(Should have cropped out the lady with the yellow coat. :D ) It was a rousing success. Now for the All State concert next month!
Oh, and the best part is that the boy child really liked this year's conductor. AND, he likes one of the pieces they played enough that he wants to get it for his iTouch! Now that's news! lol! Up to now, it's been total aloofness from classical music. Maybe there's hope yet. :D
A final picture or two of Mia for those who requested it. She's growing like a weed, but she's still nice and kitten-sized.
I think we're settling in with each other quite nicely.
Have a great week, everyone! Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi!
(Pretend there's another pic of Mia here. Blogger wouldn't let me add it.)
