Things have been going very smoothly with my latest project - a Little House Needleworks freebie called "Thankful." I've been stitching it over 1 on 28 count linen and it's been a very enjoyable little piece to stitch up. And I mean "little" literally!
I've finished everything except the words. The design says "Thankful for Ewe" but I haven't quite decided if I want to stitch that phrase or something else depending on what I put in the finished tin to give to my sister. Hm. I haven't decided yet on what exactly to make the tin for. I need to give that some more thought. In the meantime, here's the design stitched up without any words:
I've really enjoyed stitching this 1/1. It's been very tedious but the effect is fantastic! It's so precious. I can't wait to give my first tin finishing a try.
Lately it feels like the weekends have been busier and crazier than the weekdays! Last weekend we had a memorial for my FIL, the Easter vigil, and then Easter. This weekend we had a mass and funeral for my FIL yesterday and then DH's cousin had her first Holy Communion today. I need a weekend just to recover from my weekends! Next weekend Cuddle Bug and I are going to visit my twin sister in Illinois. It's "siblings weekend" on campus where my sister is in graduate school. DH will be sleeping in next weekend. I won't be so lucky. But he was kind enough to let me sleep in late this morning and he even made me breakfast. They don't come better than my hubby :)
