I'll Be Quick About It!

Just a quick update.....

I spent the weekend stretching and pinning a few finished pieces to some foam core. NOW what shall I do?

Playing Around This Morning

So, I've been "playing around" with Blogger this morning. It's been an "experience!" What do you think? Please let me know if it's "readable." Thanks!

...And Framed!

Look at Me! Two posts in June! I felt "the need" to show off a little. Here's Exemplar Dames "True Wisdom" framed. It wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be to frame it. "Thanks, Jackie at A Stitcher's Garden in Manlius, NY" for the beautiful framing! Photobucket
 Also, Laura Perin's "Independence Inn" all framed! Whoot! 2be18fc6

It's Wednesday..... Already!

Well, Hello,
I'm on a roll. I have another un-finished finish! This one was started around the same time as True Wisdom, but I actually worked like a slave on it. Then....I discovered that the front lawn wasn't going to match up left to right. Yeah... soooooooooooooo..... Long story short, I put it away - for over a year. Got it out late this Winter and said "Do or Die!" Here is Laura Perin's "Independence Inn" in all her splendor!

It's been a while... QUITE a while.... Okay, I'm "over" it. Here's what I've been doing.... stitching... I humbly offer up my finish. It took 3 years of semi-steady work, with HD floss. I don’t think I want to know how much I spent on the GAST and WDW cards! I can’t even afford to have it framed due to it’s 17” X 36” size!
