Well I finished the heart this evening. This is a JBW Design, Amour, of which I stitched all but the word Amour. It is stitched on 18ct white aida, and with Victorian Motto floss called Pals Cherry Chill. This is the third piece that I have stitched with this floss, and I love it more with each piece. I think it looks so striking against the white of the fabric. I am not sure that I am going to get it finished this weekend, seems I have less and less spare time these days. But, stitching in those spare moments has been wonderful.
I have a picture of the flowers that my husband gave me for Valentine's Day that I should have shown you on Monday or Tuesday night. Keep in mind I took this picture this afternoon, five days after I got the beautiful flowers. I think they are holding up wonderfully. Also know that daisies are my most favorite flower, and were what I carried down the aisle almost 43 years ago. Also, we have a rose bed in our back yard, so we have roses in the house all summer long. Those two reasons are why I didn't get roses. I got what I really would love. Sometimes, Bill really does the right thing - LOL!!
With what little time I have left to stitch this month, I am going to work on finishing the bit of blue background on Peaceable Kingdom, and work on a new project. Yes, I am starting another new project. This one really excites me because it is for my very first exchange arranged over the blogs. I have done exchanges at the Pals convention, but never one on one like this. I am really thrilled that Michele (Just Another Stitching Blog) has agreed to do a Spring/Easter exchange with me. Whoooo Hooooo! So, there will be less pictures in March, but I still have some other things I want to get done. I will post my March goals next weekend.
Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and taking time to leave comments. It is quite a thrill to see comments from all over the world. What a great group of people us stitchers are!! Until next time have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
