OMG She's Posting!

I have been stitching, honest. So, my friend Minnie at All XXs was an evil enabler! She showed me the Joan Elliott Faces SAL and I was hooked. I have finished the border and just finished the first box. Here are my pictures.



There are already two more Faces to stitch so I have a lot of catching up to do.

Another Finish

I finished Snowy Forest last night. I put all the buttons on too. It needs to be ironed, but here it is.


We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy today. It was great! It's a fun movie with plenty of action and laughs. Of course my favorite character is Rocket.



I love a raccoon with attitude.

Thanks for stopping by.

She is Home

I actually picked Red a few weeks ago, but we had a death in the family and everything has taken a back seat. My local LNS did the framing and they did a fabulous job. I wish you could see it in person.

Close up of frame and mats.
I also finished Snowy Reindeer, part 8 of Frosty Forest.


One last part to do and it will be completed. Hopefully now that things have settled down I can do a little more stitching.

Thanks for stopping by.

She Has a Home

Finished the Snowgirl's Cottage. It actually went a lot faster than I thought.


I've already started the next part - Snowy Reindeer.

Have a Happy Fourth everyone!

Anniversary!

Yesterday was our 28th wedding anniversary. We decided to wait and celebrate today because we wanted to do the Sunday brunch at the Gaylord at the National Harbor. We live across the river from it on the Virginia side. It takes us all of 10 minutes to drive across the bridge to get there. The other cool thing is they have opened the new Ferris wheel. It's big, holds a little over 300 people, and has air conditioned booths to sit in. So, here are the pictures from our day.

We had lunch at the Pienza in the atrium

Serenaded at lunch
There is a gift shop in the Gaylord that sells glassware, Pandora, and Swarovski. A few years ago Sam got me a little black crystal cat. Today he got me this little fellow. He is just adorable. Now that we stuffed ourselves silly at the buffet, I am going to plop myself down and do a little stitching.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pattern 5 done

First off I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments on Red. She's in the framing room and In Stitches. I get to visit her on Stitch Night. They have her pinned and she looks fabulous. Can't wait until the framing is complete.

Moving right along on Frosty Forest. I thought I was almost caught up but the next part came out so I still have two more to stitch before I'm caught up.


I have almost three quarters of the border done for the next square.
