Caved...

Hello Stitching Buddies and Friends! Long time, no post, huh?! I've been a bit under the weather. I've had the Respiratory Flu and I'm still in the fog a little bit, but I think I'm clawing my way up the other side of the pit.

Well I caved......I couldn't stand putting the Bee Man in the box and waiting to frame it, so I took a coupon and went on over to Hobby Lobby Frame shop and purchased a custom frame - it came in today, so I went and picked up that bad boy and framed it up....I'm in love......

Stitched on: 40 ct. Purely Primitive Silkweaver Newcastle Linen
using DMC fibers

Aren't you?! I can't WAIT to stitch something else from this series....I wish I had more hours in the day....Well my friends and buddies....not much stitching has been going on around here due to illness and mind fuzziness, not to mention - softball games, baseball games, band concerts, teacher luncheons, need I go on?....but I have a few secret exchanges coming up soon that I've been working on, so hopefully I'll be able to come back real soon and give you a looksie at those :o) But this is all I have for you today...

So Until Next time.....Love and best wishes, as you count your blessings and your stitches, from our house to yours! XXxxxx
