Gorgeous finish Ranae - I love the sound of espresso linen!
Oh if only I could join the stitch in - I used to live in Barrington Hills IL, but now based back in the UK - definitely a bit too far to travel!
What a gorgeous grandson - love the name Dalton too!

What a cute finish Ranae! I just saw this at my LNS today and I went back and forth about getting it and I ended up walking out without it. Shame on me!! I just love it and even better it works up fast.

You finished that already?????? Bionic stitching!!!!

Those Reward of Merit charts are just the best! I started that old BBD freebie of the Eiffel Tower (or did I already tell you that?). I am using my new favorite material, Apple Brown Bindy, and that beautiful Plush Plum belle soie.

Your grandson is sure a cutie!!!!!

Hope to be able to meet you on the 2nd!
