Some Stitching to share....

Our neighbors and good friends are celebrating their 25th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday, May 25th. So in honor of their special occasion, I stitched up this:


Designer: Little House Needleworks - Diane Williams
Design: Always and Forever
Fabric: 32 ct. Belfast my own personal hand-dye job
Fiber: Sparklies - Topaz
Finished as: Flatfold
I hope this brings them much joy! Every stitch was crossed with love and well wishes for them. The design is perfect and once again I've added this one to my own list. Diane just doesn't have a bad design does she? She's pure gold.
On a personal note, this is my kids last "official" day of school. They have their awards ceremonies, so being the mother of twins not in the same classroom...I have to run back and forth between their classrooms and doing hand signals to their teachers so that I can see what all they've been awarded. The twins have their ceremony first thing this morning. Katie's is this afternoon. And I can just sit and look pretty (my Grandma always said that...."all you have to do is sit and look pretty!").....LOL! brings a smile to my face thinking of her....Anyway...I'm excited to see what the Pfeiffer kids bring home this year. News and pictures to follow, I'm sure....
Until then, my friends, stitch with joy!

  7. Must have missed a post in there somewhere. My computer has been tempermental lately. I love the finish for the anniversary gift, but I can't let another moment go by without a comment on that bluebird. She is amazing! I love clay work. It was my childhood favorite way before I got into painting or drawing. The glazing is beautiful. That gift is a true treasure of a lifetime.

  18. You make me homesick for all the end-of-school year rituals that I remember from growing up. Here, there really isn't anything involved in it, maybe because the summer holiday is so short.

    That's a gorgeous wedding anniversary gift you made!
