Winston draws a name



Winston draws Margaret. "The Eye of the Sparrow" will soon be flying off to her. And then hopefully she will fly it to a different stitcher. I don't think I have your addy, so if you can email it that will help.

This is not the intended frame. I broke the one I had and then sat on the glass (it was on the couch, hehe) oh well it was not meant to be in that frame, so this will have to do for now.

Block #9 of The Villages is done

I really want to get this done, so I can start the autumn/fall one that's due out soon

Remember this??

I talked about doing it last year and this is where I am with it

"Happy Camper" by Raise The Roof Designs. I will leave it out and give it some attention. I am not sure where the buttons are, so I will be doing some stash diving for them.

It's been so gloomy here, the lighting is not so good today for photography

I started this last night for our BBD Wednesday night SAL.

"Beneath the Sunlit Sky" Loose feathers #26

Kajsa and I so far stitched "Summer House" "Sunflower House" and "Evergreen".

I think we agreed on this one anyway

I am so sorry I forgot to update on the last post about my mom. So many have asked.

Mom come home on Friday night, she was in there for 5 days and the docs decided it was her lungs and not her heart. She came home with an inhaler and they delivered an oxygen tank on Monday and hasn't used it yet. So yes! she is feeling better, Thanks!!

Don't forget to floss!!!

Congratulations Margaret!

Ranae, it looks great in that frame. Funny that you sat on the original frame because I once did that too!!! Was it my fault that the frame was on the chair when the phone rang and with-out looking I sat down? Well truth be told it was my fault but I still blame the cat!! LOL LOL

I am crazy about your Sampler (the Villages?) right next to the Starbucks flag on the right margin. I would love to know where to find this pattern. A group member posted your blog on our board (KYKrossStitchers).

Congrats Margaret!

I love the frame that it's in now! I'm not sure what frame you had initially had for it but this one works :o)

That's awesome! Do you just have three more blocks to go? There's an autumn one coming out????

You started Happy Camper! I was looking at my fabric just the other day :o)

Melissa said...

So glad your mom is feeling better, Ranae.

I like how Eye on the Sparrow is framed. It looks great. I'm sure you will love stitching Beneath the Sunlit Sky. The photo on the chart does not do it justice!

Have fun with all your stitching!

Kathy said...

Beautiful finishes and even more beautiful wips.

I look forward to your progress on the BBD piece. I have this one but haven't started it yet.

Carol said...

Glad your mom is on the mend, Ranae! I'm loving watching your progress on Villages. I got it for Christmas, but it won't be started for a long, long time I'm afraid. What fabric are you doing yours on?

Laural said...

I cannot believe that I am sososososo far behind!!

Sparrow is absolutely adorable and I like the frame that you put it in. Sorry about the other one though :(

Great job on getting block nine done!!!

I'm glad that your mom is doing better.

Siobhan said...

Congrats, Margaret! :)

Ranae, I'm so glad to hear that your mother is doing better. Your finish looks great in the frame! Love the WIPs, too.

Tammy said...

Your finish is beautiful!! Love the wips too. I have that BBD and the colors are SO beautiful. Your start on it is great.

Brigitte said...

I also stitch a BBD every year and was thinking of stitching Sunlit Skies this year as well but then decided on Their Song.
You have stitched so much already on Village. Great job!

Kajsa said...

Congrats Margaret! That frame is perfect, it must have been meant to be. BTSS looks great, I did start too.

Congrats on getting another block of Villages done. Eye looks wonderful all framed up, you'd never know it wasn't your original intended frame. Fun WIP's too. Glad your mom is doing better.
