Well, I did wander a bit more before settling down stitching-wise. I started Sarah Seifer by the Good Huswife, which I love. And I will get back to it sometime, I'm sure! (And no, this is not a picture of Sarah Seifer.)
But in the midst of stitching Sarah, I realized that what I was having a hankering for was one specific design. The problem was, I couldn't find the chart anywhere in my stash. Sigh. After searching everywhere frantically, I settled down to Sarah. But couldn't get this other piece out of my mind. So I tried looking in one more place. And I found it!! Can you tell which design it is??
It's Ann Rayner by Threads Through Time. I've been seeing her on various of my favorite blogs, and I just couldn't stop thinking about her. As soon as I found the chart -- yay! -- I dashed off to get the DMC I needed. I'm using 40ct vintage Buttercream with DMC. Aren't the colors pretty? And that's just the first alphabet!
I spent most of my time this past week on the border. I'm satisfied cause the border meets up, and most of it is done. Just some of the berries on the bottom border to finish. But I couldn't stand to finish the border -- I needed to go for that color. Ahhhhh. Color!!!!
So I think I'm happy now. :D
It's a nerve wracking time in the family right now, mainly because the boy child has finally decided on which college he is going to. Yes, the boy child is going to that big name music college in Boston. Time to freak out. lol! This will be a new experience for all of us, but most especially, of course, for the boy child. I'm happy and excited for him, and he's on cloud nine. Now we have to keep our fingers crossed that he gets a dorm room. There is only limited availability, so we just have to hope! Otherwise there will be some apartment hunting in our future.
Oh, and yes, the two still have their nap times together.
Sorry, it's a bit blurry, isn't it?
In the midst of all this excitement, Mia just goes on, doing her own thing. She took a snuggle in the father type's pants the other day.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. It's going to be a hot one today -- 86 degrees! Yuck. Luckily it won't last long.
Hope everyone has a great week!
