Stitching news...Last night, I put the final stitches in Little House Needleworks' "Blessed are the merciful" -- the second of four patterns I am stitching on one piece of fabric. Halfway done, woo hoo! Please pardon the wrinkles:
I'm thinking about making it into a pillow that will sit in a dark brown rocking chair. Maybe...maybe not...we'll see. My mind might change a few times before this thing is even finished. LOL
I started an iris by Just Nan a day or two before the end of May. I thought I'd have it done within a couple of days but nooooooooooo. You know how life gets in the way sometimes? Well, life is finally out of the way for a bit and I was able to put more stitches into it last night:
I can't wait until this is finished (surely this weekend!) so I can put it into the matching iris frame. It'll go into our bedroom which -- thanks to mine and my mother's stitching -- has an increasing amount of purple irises and lavender-shaded things. (Yes, my husband sleeps in there, too. He actually doesn't mind! LOL)
Today I passed by the nursery on the way to pay a bill. On the way back by, I just had to stop because something caught my eye. No, not a baby nursery...a PLANT nursery! ;-p Anyway, there were these huuuuuuuuuge planters full of assorted plants and they were drop-dead gorgeous. The prices were just drop-dead. (hahahaha) They were asking between $100 to $150 for them! *thud* Sooooooo, I made my own for about half the price. Whaddya' think?
I love it! It sits on Brad's side of the driveway so I hope he likes it. If not...well...it's too late now. Or maybe I could sell it for $150. HAHAHAHAHA
Happy Friday, happy stitching, and don't forget to count your blessings. *hugs*
