The Labrador Inn and St. Francis

Happy Easter and Happy Passover!  This weekend has been so lovely.  Lots of time with DH and Molly and lots of sunshine!  I have been busy stitching the past week and had one finish!  Chewy!!!  I was so excited when I finished him in Wednesday's class that I completely forgot to take a picture.  His little teeth were so cute too!  I will snap a few pictures when he comes home fully finished.  While on the subject of finished pieces, my "Babies Sleeping" sign has not come back from the finisher.  I am a bit concerned, but hopefully I will hear something in the next week or two.  In the mean time I am plugging away on this new piece (I know, I know...).

A close up of the background is below.  This has been the most difficult stitch I have done to-date because I cannot find a pattern.  I know there is one, but for some reason, I cannot see it.  The stitch guide was by Emily at Chandail, and I love it!  I needed to stretch my needlepoint wings, so I am glad for some hard stitches.  

I have also been working on him.

I love this Patty Paints St. Francis piece because of it's simplicity, the dogs, the religious element, and because I got it on sale at Chaparral.  I have been having a good time stitching it too.  It's a lot smaller and the stitches are so unique yet easier than the Labrador Inn.  I love it!  

I leave you with a picture of my Labrador!

  1. The Labrador Inn background looks great. I always figure out the pattern right before the last stitch. St. Francis looks good. I always wanted to do St. Jude(patron saint of lost causes). Can't wait to see your finishing. If you are frustrated with your finisher, I have a very reliable one. Happy Easter!
