Poor Susan Rambo has become a neglected piece. I had to work on my Jeannette Douglas class piece. I just had to. It's done, but I'm still not sure I can show it to you. So I'll just show a couple of motifs.
Those are blankets in the middle there. Aren't they cool? Such fun to stitch too! And
I got to try darning for the first time! It was fun! Takes me back to my weaving days. :D
Here is a picture that was taken for my friend Nancy (no blog) with her camera of Nancy, Kathy (no blog) and I with Jeannette. I'm glad one of us remembered a camera!
I so enjoyed this class! And the best part is it's so doable! It's finished! Finished finished even! :D Once Jeannette teaches this piece again, perhaps I can show you the whole thing.
But poor Susan Rambo. I really want to finish her, but I have to do some secret stitching now. I'll be able to tell you about this secret project, but not yet. Sometime next month I'll show you. Hopefully I can work on both the secret project and Ms Rambo. We'll see!
If you want to see a beautiful, finished Susan, go to Tamami's blog. She just finished hers, and it's gorgeous!!!! You can visit Mia's online friend too, Ms Limo. Such a cutie!
In other news, the three of us trekked down to the girl child's college to help her move into another dorm and to take some of her belongings home with us. The girl child is staying at college for the next week and a half so she can work the college reunions. It's always a chore to move her and her stuff around. But it got done in record time. And then we could have some fun -- a late lunch at a yummy Indian restaurant, a wee bit of shopping for some sale sweaters, and a naughty treat at the local ice cream shop. It was weird leaving the girl child behind and yet having lots of her stuff in the back of the car.
The French Open started yesterday. I'm looking forward to being able to sit and stitch and watch the goings on. Unfortunately, Mia isn't used to me sitting in the TV watching chair. (The TV watching chair is usually the father type's territory.) She's taken up residence.
She will not be best pleased with me when I kick her off the chair. lol! Ah well. Such is life!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi! It's so much fun to meet new people and chat with friends. Have a great week!
