Probably dear friends what she is hoping for is to see progress on a particular piece in my pile --- namely the one I refer to in my head as Eastern European Girls Go to the Fair
I yacked about it way back in this post of mine from March-- even had some of it threaded up. Sadly, she is to be disappointed since I have not yet stitched on it. I'll get there, I promise!
One of the things that interrupted the Girls Go to the Fair was Grandma Rose's rose which is now back from The Other Framer ---
The frame is a kind of opalized green. I think she'll be pleased. Now I just have to quell my desire to give it to her immediately and wait patiently until her birthday in August.
Also instead of working on So's canvas I've been, as I like to say, frying other fish. There's been a couple ornies I don't have pictures of. And there's been progress on Ladies Day. Here she is in all her glory:
I realize I neglected to ever post of close up of the final lady --
She's in two shades of Gum Nuts and 2 shades of Silk Lame.
now I've begun what apparently will be 3-months-worth fo sand infill--
Far cooler than anything I've done -- my buddy Jenn's witch's hat is home from the finisher --
How cool is that????? Kudos to Jenn the Magnificent .... and to the patience it took to do this over the course of 2 years I think (granted I believe there was a 6 month break while waiting for us to amass a shop-minimum order so the pumpkin charms could be ordered in bulk).
Anyway, Jenn's my needlepoint inspiration/bete noir. It's all her fault I started needlepointing-- I was perfectly happy in my xs life. Blame her for why I have weak xs updates right now..... ok, well mostly it is because I didn't get my camera in gear, but Jenn's a very responsible person, she can handle the extra blame... heee heee.
Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend -- relax however you see fit! See you next week.
P.S. Feel better now, So Many Books?
