to my dear friends! We've reached the dog days of summer and the temperature and humidity gauge in good 'ol Indiana (and many other places of the US of A) is showing snarling hot temperatures. But the good 'ol weather man says that some cooler air is headed to Indiana and all I can say is, "Bring it on weather man, bring. it. on."
slipped the last few stitches in a fallish project that had me snarling like a dog, rather than fondly thinking of gourds and pumpkins. For the life of me, I couldn't stitch the top and bottom satin stitched bands correctly and I frogged them THREE TIMES. I very nearly wadded the whole project up and threw it in the corner ~ but thanks to the moon cycle, low hormone levels and a clear head ~ I prevailed in my efforts and here, without further ado, is my finish:
Designed by: The Goode Huswife ~ Anne Brown
Stitched on 40 ct. lambswool
Stitched with DMC
will go in my finish drawer for a future "great frame up". I've spent a lot of dough-re-mi on framing in the last two months and I don't want the mister to go stark raving mad over the credit card bills...so to the drawer it goes for a future date with a framer :)
well, I'll let you contemplate that as I start my next project. I'll give you a hint it deals with two of my great loves ~ Penny Rugs and America!
Until next time...
I'll be keeping my 'hands to work and heart to God' just like always! How about joining me?
Hugs and love,
