Under Contruction and two finishes

Good Evening!!
I have time to post on a Saturday nite as the fishing season is now officially started. So while the boys are off to play this weekend, Kellie and I did some shopping and come home to paint. She is painting her room while I touch up my hallways, fun!!!!
Here is Princess Parade. The castle is now under construction.


Sorry!! I was too lazy to take it off the scrolls. I also forgot to get a close up of the little frog, the princess in the yellow is holding it, cute!! I hope she has a firm grip on that little fella.
I finished the deer ornament from the Prairie Lodge chart.
I even have a finished finish.
"The Little Sampler" by The Goode Huswife.
The back is leather. A little pricey, but I think it gives the primitive design an elegant look.
**This could be up for trade if you think you can entice me to give it up. Let me know what you have as way of something stitchy, charts, fabby, kit, floss, etc. either leave a comment with email or you can find my addy in the About Me. I will leave it open for a week and see what you can come up with.
Some added photo's of Easter weekend at my in-laws. It was sunny but the temp was very cool
They live by a pond that gets fed by springs and run off from a major highway. I don't know, but there is probably other photo's in my blog with better pics, it's pretty cool place for walks and picnics and oh yeah fishing, lol
For those who noticed you had a follower and shortly after that lost one. It was me. Everytime I followed or went to a blog I followed, I would have a lot and I mean alot of window internet explorer popping up over and over again. I had to shut down AOL using the ctrl, alt and delete buttons to make it stop. I ran my PC Tools, but it didn't fix it. Sorry!!!
I do have everyone in my google reader
Thanks so much for your visits, comments and emails.
As ye sew, so shall ye not RIP's

I have been having that very same problem with AOL or microsoft or internet explorer!!! And it only seems to happen when I'm visiting blogs...what the heck is going on??? I've been doing McAfee scans, so hopefully it fixed the problem.

Love your Goode Huswife finish...and that frame is awesome!!!

Deb said...

Just came across your blog and I do love your GH finish and the frame is really perfect for it even if it was a big pricey. And your Princess Parade is absolutely adorable too!

Your finishes look great.
The princess piece is cute.

Tammy said...

So far, that crazy open-a-million-windows thing has only happened to me once, and I was looking at Staci's blog. It happened to me on another computer while using internet explorer. Very weird.

Hi Renae

Marita said...

That is some lovely stitching. Congratulations on the finish, the leather backing does look great.

Your frame for the GH finish is BRILLIANT!! :D

Christine said...

I've had that gazillion windows opening thing happen to me when looking at blogs too, but not for a while (touch wood).
Great progress on princess parade and I love the reindeer ornament

Brigitte said...

Your stitching looks very nice, I love the princess piece. And of course the PS ornament (being a PS fan). That leather frame looks gorgeous, what a neat idea!
Very nice family pictures.

Patti said...

Can I make a suggestion if you use Firefox instead of MS Internet Explorer I think you will find that this fixes your problems. Now onto your stitching. I love your finishes, expecially the Goode Huswife one and your Princess Parade is coming along beautifully. Love Patti xxx

Julie said...

Super finish to the Good Huswif, love the leather look.
Your princess's are adorable, i too hope she keeps hold of that little froggy!!

Cute ornament finish, and Princess Parade is looking wonderful. Your sampler looks great finished, it does keep with the primitive style. As to The Goblins, nope not a bookmark, regular piece. I didn't know SB had bookmark size pieces, I'll have to go checkout their site for some ideas.

Oh good, it's not just me! I have that million-windows-being-opened thing happen when I don't let the page fully load and I try to click through it too fast. It's like the computer punishes me for my impatience. I have a thing scanning my computer 24/7 so it's blogger or IE rather than a computer bug. I think and hope, anyway!

Love your finishes! Your Princess Parade looks like it's coming along so nicely, too.

Meari said...

Your stitchy projects put me to shame *hangs head* I haven't gotten much done lately.

CindyMae said...

All your stitching looks amazing! Love each piece! Princess Parade is looking fantastic, that is such a cute design!

Found your blog off of Mear's and noticed your trade blog. I would love the Just Nan amethyst snowflake. I have three different Halloween patterns, LizzieKate My other car is a broom, Trail Creek Farm Halloween Treats or Grumpkin Patch. Please let me know. Thanks!

I simply love that princess with the frog. Hopefully she is holding him by the neck! LOL
Regarding my Bent Creek, I think it is an OOP kit however I did get my off of Ebay. You are more than welcome to my chart if you would like it! I am done with it so just email me :-) You could probably make a pillow and find the tags in the scrapbook section, eh?

Really pretty leather finish!

Picnics and walks and just anything we can do outside and under the sun, we all can't wait here in St Louis!

The Little Sampler looks great, makes me want to get my chart out and hop to it. Gotta love Goode Huswife! The leather makes it pop. Glad you had a good Easter weekend!
