Yes, she's still quite red. But she's a pretty one!
The verse doesn't show up that well. Hmmmmmm.
I stuck in some more personalized initials. In addition to my initials and the father type's initials (which were already there anyway) at the top, to the right of the house I stuck in the boy child's and the girl child's initials. And the LS on the left of the house is for my sister and BIL. (It used to be IS.) Otherwise, it's as little Ann stitched it. And as always, I bless any child who is wise enough to stitch her verse over two. lol!
I've picked up a WIP/UFO to stitch on for now. We'll see if I stick with it. (Yes, I do have UFOs. Way too many of them.)
Over the weekend, the father type and I built a chest of drawers from our go to place for cheap yet well built (more or less) furniture, IKEA. It's for the boy child's room (which he wasn't happy about -- didn't think it was needed. But it was.) Mia decided to help with the building.
She liked it even better when it was lying on its front. A nice, cozy, dark place. lol! Eventually she stopped being in the chest of drawers and watched the action from the boy child's bass instead.
Thanks to everyone who had suggestions for making things better between the girl child and Mia. I'm definitely trying a couple of them when the girl child gets back from her summer job.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
