Myself - just about every project is in its completed state. There are a few that I want to tweak a bit - but they are mostly DONE!
I emailed a friend late last week whining that I wasn't in the mood to stitch what I had up in rotation. By the end of the email I had convinced myself that I wanted to stitch a couple of Bent Creek Designs I found in a magazine I had won from Paula.
|Here Comes the Sun & Full Moon Rising|

28ct Light Mocha Cashel
From BHG Cross Stitch & Needlework June 1998
DH gave me quiet the compliment the other day. I happened to be showing him my progress on Here Comes the Sun. He looks at it and tells me he couldn't stitch on linen because the holes are too small. But, he loves the look. And he thought I did a good job on linen. Ahh...that's why I keep him around.
I wanted to show you another couple of completions if you don't mind.
Not sure how well the color of the frame shows - but it was a 'hold your breath' kinda moment. I didn't like the color paint I had available here at home. So, starting with an orangy brown - I painted the frames then I got bold and rubbed black on them after the first coat had dried. Sometimes it just works. This almost became a pillow. But after another disastrous odyssey - I gave up!
Here's Thine is the Trick and the Treat - from last years SAL with Crystal.
Plans for the this weekend - Mom is taking us to dinner tonight. On Sunday, we are going to Menard's. She's never been to our local store. I might see if she'll consent to head further north to pick up a couple of goodies for my RAK. (Oops, the candy I bought earlier this week didn't make it to the box. I had a chocolate crisis and it was handy.)
Next week had promised to be a bad week - lots of firsts happening with Dad - his birthday is the 25th. I've invited Mom to go to a movie Friday night. I'm thinking Lincoln Lawyer - Matthew McConaughey. Yum yum! Any other movie suggestions?
I would like to say hello to my newest followers. And thank-you for the comments you leave. They are truly appreciated. You guys rock!
Also, if you would like to see all my new frames/completions head over to my flickr photostream. Just click on my slide show on the sidebar. Feel free to make comments if you would like. It's fun to hear how you finished yours.
