A New Finish and Back to an Oldie


Here's the finished Bugs and Blooms. I put the last stitches in today. Now we'll see how long it takes me to make it into a pillow - years, probably! lol I'll try to go to the fabric store in the next few days to get some fabric and a pillow form for it.

I pulled this back out and did a few stitches on it. I don't know if anyone remembers it. This is Little Moon Welcome. It is a freebie at www.brookesbooks.com. Click on "Free Stuff" on the left, and then click on "Cross Stitch Freebies" and scroll down. I'm doing it on 28 count Monaco, 2 over 2. I like the quilted yard!
It's been a quiet, peaceful, stitching day. DD left for the wedding at 11:30. She asked her new boyfriend to go and he said okay. But then this morning she couldn't get in touch with him. She got all dressed. And she looked so beautiful! She went over to his place to see what was going on and he was still asleep. I guess he's a late sleeper like Katie. Well, he jumped up and got dressed. They came by here on the way, because Katie had left the directions to the church here. Her boyfriend looked very handsome! I can't wait to hear all about the wedding!
My mom and I didn't get to visit my nephew and the new great nephew today. My mom is very sick with a virus. I talked to her on the phone last night and I got up feeling sick myself today. I told her she sent it to me through the phone. I think it's just "sympathy sickness." lol I worry so much when she is sick, and she won't let any of us come around her for fear we will get it! She's always been that way, and if you go over there anyway, she won't come to the door! If she's not better by Monday, I'm going over there and taking her to the doctor whether she likes it or not! That is, if I can get her to open the door! Well, that's about all I have to say. Have a happy day and may God bless you!

What a sweet new finish Vicki - so lovely and springlike. Also great that you pulled an oldie out again. It's a cute pattern.
How fun that we both stitched 'Watering Can' for a quilt. You are so right - the color combination was much prettier than I had expected.
Hope Katie & DBF had a great time at the wedding. Best wishes to your mother - hope she is well again soon.

Speedy recovery to your mum :)

I really like the things you are stitching. They are looking good. Glad Katie got the BF to get up and go to the wedding. Some guys wouldn't do that. Just take a crowbar when you go to your mother's and tell her you are going to pry the door open. If that doesn't work....I have no more suggestions.
