Whew! That was harder than I thought it would be! Oh, some have asked how the stripy effect was achieved in the grass. It was just stitched on the diagonal with two different thread colors. I really love the way it looks! I have the feeling I was supposed to do the same thing with the lake. Oh well.
Now that And They Sinned is finally done, I have another long running WIP that might or might not get done someday. ATS was the first long running WIP that I've picked up here and there and then actually finished. Well, here's the next one. I started And All Was for an Appil (by the Scarlet Letter, using DMC on 40ct R&R mystery linen) I don't remember when. (I should just look back on my blog entries and I would see!) For some reason, I can never get into this one! But I did accomplish a bit more on it at least.
Hopefully I'll pick it up again sometime.
In the meantime, I started a new project.

I have one more rose to stitch in the top border and then I can start the insides. (The one that's on the right is supposed to be like that for some reason.) If you'd like to see a finished piece, go to Marsha's blog here. She's the one who inspired me to want to stitch this one. So beautiful! (Scroll down and you'll see it!)
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes for both kids. The girl child has been busy furnishing her new digs on a tight budget, and has done a great job! The boy child is getting better all the time, but the healing process will take quite a while yet.
Mia has been very aware that something is up with her boy. She watches the dressing changes very carefully, and always avoids the wound area, not even coming close to it. But she still likes to cuddle up to her boy, nevertheless.
She especially likes being on that pillow. lol! And yes, some of this takes place as well.
Aren't they cute? :D
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. It's always wonderful to visit with you. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
