I'm back to my blog! Work has been crazy and so has life. Molly went through a bit of a health scare about the time I stopped blogging. Her vet thought she had congestive heart failure, but luckily a dog cardiologist confirmed that she did not. Football season has kept me busy with trips and watching games.
Since July, I've turned in a few pieces for finishing, acquired a few, and stitched a few.
The first is the Labrador Inn that came back from the framer.
But I didn't like it. It was too dark. So it went back for new ribbons and a new frame.
And the I got this one on super sale at Chaparral.
Followed by these two from the Quarter Stitch in New Orleans. My family and I had a blast there celebrating my sister's 21st birthday! Spa trips, drinking, beignets, delicious food, and history all in one!
This is a Clementine Hunter design on canvas.
This next one is by the fabulous Melissa Shirley.
Pat O'Brien's for a delicious hurricane!
St. Louis cathedral
The apartment where Tennessee Williams wrote "A Streetcar Named Desire".
I've been really bad at posting pictures of finshed finished pieces. Here are a few that I've gotten back so far. Some of these were from the fall. I have three more pieces at the finisher including one at the framer.
This is the Princess and Me alligator that I got at Camp Allen. How it will be finished is still up in the air.
The Bama Girl pillow is back! Hard to photgraph but the fabric is black on black with black fringe. Love the look!
A valentine's pillow I got back in the fall.
This is one of my first pieces ever completed. It was purchased at Meribee Needlearts near my grandma on FM 1960. I got this one back in the fall too.
This is a Kathy Schenkle that I purchased at Bessie Kaldis' estate sale.
The Charley Harper basset hound!!
With the rest of the pillows!
For my mom for Mother's Day! A Melissa Shirley Scottish Santa!
