Short Post

Well folks, I know I owe you some pics and an update. I still have that on the go, but I have been really busy. My DS decided to take on a new sleep deprived, constant eating, and new attitude personality. He is still cute, but I think he is practicing for the terrible two's.

I have a pic of a finish I completed last Friday, and just wanted to post it. I am going to try the flat fold finish after all. I will have a pic as soon as I acquire the final supplies (hopefully this week-end).

Lizzy Kate "A Sister"
 Here she is. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I wish I had better lighting so you could see the pink flowers in the background. They are tiny but set off the design perfectly. I am half way through the second one for Mama Lu's other sister and then I will begin "Daughters" by Lizzy Kate for their mother.

I used the recommended fabric, 28 ct. Joblean Lambswool by Wichelt and the DMC alternatives. My DS loves touching the threads as I work, so I need something washable. I stitched over 2.

Next week I should be able to down load the zoo pics with that wonderful pic of the frog that I know haunts my stitching. and an update on the Love Quilt square. I also have some grass in my yard and new landscaping I need to share (just because its been a few days and is still living - he he he). Type to ya next week. Have a wonderful, stitchy filled week-end.

Congrats on the finish Joy! I think it will look great as a flatfold! My Mom stitched this one as a gift for her Sister and I believe I finished it into a flatfold too :)
