I did show off one of the models I worked on -- Brother's Keeper by Plum Street Samplers.
(Thanks again for the pic, Paulette!)
But I haven't shown off any of the stitching I've done for Vickie Jennett of Needlework Press. So here goes.
First I stitched some pieces for a symposium at the Attic in Mesa, Arizona that Vickie offered as part of her class to the attendees.
(Yes, I stitched the same piece twice but with different letters/words.)
These were both based on a piece that was later released at Nashville market, The Alsap Family Record Sampler. (No, I didn't stitch the model for that.)
I also stitched a little piece that I believe was offered as a freebie at Nashville market.
(No, I didn't do any of the finishing on any of these pieces. :D )
And finally, I stitched this piece which was also released at Nashville.
The latest model I've stitched I can't show off yet since it hasn't been released yet. But when it is, I will try to show it to you.
My stitching blahs continue. I tried to start a new piece. In fact, I tried twice. First, I tried the Jenny Bean Sampler from Scarlet Letter. I do love this one, but I just can't deal with the dark, almost black fabric right now. Then I tried starting Dona Dorothea Gazano y Garcia, also by the Scarlet Letter. I got a bit farther with it, but I'm just not enjoying it right now.
Hopefully I'll get back to these someday, but not for now. My friend Katrina suggested one or two other pieces to try so that's what I'm going to try next. The stitching blahs have hit hard!
We did have a nice Easter dinner yesterday, but sadly the girl child couldn't come home. She's working hard on her senior thesis, poor thing. Here's the spread.
Yum yum! Since the father type had baked some Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies a day or two before, that was our dessert. Thanks again to Katrina for pointing out the recipe. So good!
The boy child is still trying to decide on which college to go to. It's down to this college that he really likes or the music college he really likes. Tough decision -- he's deciding between two very different experiences. I hope he decides soon......
Here's something fun for you to watch if you're interested. This indie group, OK Go, has inspired the boy child quite a bit recently. They are really creative! I especially recommend the Needing/Getting video. And apparently this video was quite a sensation a while ago, Here It Goes Again. Love it! And yes, somehow things like this are a part of the boy child's decision making process. Hard to explain. :D
Mia seemed to sleep a lot for Easter. Here she is with the boy child's Easter basket of goodies.
Here she is later in the day. Can you see her? lol!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I love to visit with you all! I hope everyone has a great week!
