Another Finish!

Yesterday I showed you this finish - today I show you it is now a pillow. I love pillows - such a quick easy way to go!  


This morning I was able to finish my second start of the week. I happened to have this frame sitting around and it fit perfectly. Yippee!

Blossoms and Blackbirds
by LHN
Country French Cashmere - 28ct
DMC floss
Decided to start another patriotic pattern this afternoon. It also will be finished into a pillow. It happens to be a pattern I picked up for my upcoming give away. Since I was digging around in the goody bag I decided to add more patterns - lucky you. 

Tonight finds me having steak for dinner. When I quit UPS last December a friend there gave me a gift certificate for Omaha Steaks. I finally ordered them before Mother's Day thinking they would make a wonderful dinner. That got put on hold because we were remodeling. Now, finally, I get my steak dinner. Yummy! 

Time to go stitch - I am so glad I have my mojo back. Still not overly interested in working on Red Birds. But, the designer did ask me to send her a picture when I finished. 

Hope today finds you pulling a stitch or two!

Beautiful stitching! Just thought i'd mention: I cannot read your blog on my iPad. I can read what you wrote by google reader, but not on your blog. Maybe you can ask if other people have the same problem. Just thought you'd like to know.
