Thank you everyone for the nice comments on my stitching. I think I finally figured out the email notification/reply thing it only took me what 1-1/2 years?
We are now having slightly below average temperatures. I had frost on my windshield this morning! Now, I know those of you that live north of the optimal climatic zone as was once written of New Hampshire in a turn of the 20th century travel guide will not necessarily find that unusual, BUT it's very strange here. I don't mind changing seasons but I really would like it to decide which season it wants to be and stick with it.
Stitching wise, here's what I worked on this week:
You saw the kit for this one, here is the roof minus beads:
Yes, you read correctly, I also had a finish!!
Marsh Marigolds on Logan's Creek is now hanging on the "wall of finishes" in the den. I can not get the fabric color to photograph correctly it is actually a very pale green - almost the color of young celery.
Last and certainly not least, I got this in the mail today:
Isn't it beautiful? Jo at Serendipitous Stitching stitched this for me. The flower is backstitched and then she colored in the background. I have loved all the others I saw on her blog, but not as much as this one! Daisies and pansies are my favorite flower and it got here just in time for my birthday. which I wasn't going to say anything about but since I just had to show off the card, the secret is out. My birthday is Sunday - I'll be slightly younger than the dinosaurs.
Debbie Mumm's Summerhill House has gone onto the scroll rods. I took next week off from work I declared a birthday week and what better way to celebrate? so I am really hoping to make some progress on it. I do have a few things around the house that I'd like to get done, but pretty much it's a do whatever I want to do week. And part of what I want is to start Chatelaine's Deep Blue Sea but I will wait until Friday to do that.
