Long Awaited Happy Dance

I have two finishes to share with you....

"No Frog Zone"

Stitched on 32 count Linen with DMC


This is the adorable chart that Graceann sent me. It had no color picture with it so I wasn't sure just how it was going to look but I think it came out really cute. As soon as I get to JoAnn's for some batting I'm going to make it into a "no sew" cube to sit on my desk.


And now for the biggie.....

This evening I finally finished "A Quaker Christmas" WOO HOO

"A Quaker Christmas" by By Gone Stitches

Stitched on 36 count Lambswool Linen with

Crescent Colours. Stitched 1 over 2

Started 12/23/09 finished 7/18/10


I can't wait for the weather to cool off so I can get it to the framers. Since this is for my sweet Tracy I'd love to have it framed by his birthday next month.

My next big project will be "Friends in Stitches" that Mel sent me. Just need to separate the threads and then I can get to work on it. I may do a few more smalls too.

Going to keep this short so I can get back to stitching so.....
Until Next Time......Happy Stitching

Rene,

This came out beautiful. It is definitly on my wish list. I must confess that I haven't touched Quaker Halloween for a couple of months. I can't seem to put down Train of Dreams
