I finally finished it! Here is Quaker Garden by Blackbird Designs. I began this on July 3rd as a SAL coordinated by Karen V. I did love stitching this, and this picture (taken by my husband) does pretty accurately show the fabric color. If you can believe it this is the first time I have ever added my initials to a piece of needlework. I am a stickler about signing my quilts and artworks, but have never signed a needlework piece. Go figure. So, it was kind of exciting to put my brand new initials on this piece. I will probably frame this piece, but not immediately. So, for now I think I am going to focus on some of my works in progress (namely Mystery 9) instead of starting something new. I am really itching to start my Little House Needleworks Liberty Hill Inn. I keep thinking about it and would really love to start. But, I should really clear up some of these other pieces first. I know I am not alone in wanting to start so many things, and to buy so many new charts! So, thanks Karen for organizing this great SAL – so many people have done such beautiful work on this piece too! This was my very first SAL, so I am happy about that too. That takes care of #93 on my 101 things list “participate in a SAL”. And I actually marked one other thing of my list this week – #1 “Begin contributing to my 401k”. It’s been a productive week. And since Blogger is cooperating and loading pictures for the first time in a long while, here is a photo of two of my three cats. Romeo is the black and white and Hamlet is the blue tabby Maine Coon. They’ve found their patch of sunshine in the dining room. Hope you are all having a great weekend!
I am grateful for my family.
