I've been busy... very busy

Happy Wednesday --  How's your week going?

I've been Little Miss Productive.  I don't know how that has come to pass, but I'm not complaining.

Last weekend I dropped two things off at the shop for the framer --

That's an adjustment of a Wit and Whimsey pattern. I did it in Belle Soie, Waterlilies, and a silver Kreinik).  It was how I celebrated St. Patrick's Day.   Luckily we had that perfect green frame.

Then our friend Beatrix --

A close up of the frame -- which I am completely in love with.
I made a last addition to the piece--

I added the "RG" initials for Grandma Rose -- my friend's grandmother who has been so kind as to adopt me.  She's quite a woman, our Grandma Rose, still jumping rope every day at 96.  Bless her!

I finished another needlepoint this week.  Sorry, the picture hasn't happened this week.  And I hope to have another one done by the weekend.  Apparently I am on a roll.  Cross your fingers that I keep it up.  I'm not certain where the sudden fervor comes from.  I wish I could moderate it.  I planted myself on my bed and stitched all day Sunday.  Such a great way to spend the day, but I have to say that bed-sitting is not stitching optimal----I'm still nursing a bruised tailbone.  I really do need to leave Chez Hovel for someplace a chair will fit.   Oh, ok.  I have 4 chairs -- 3 are dining room types and are covered with dust, books, and sundries.  The 4th is my grandmother's rocking chair and it's coated in clothes.

In place of my needlepoint pics, allow me to share this amazing Sew Much Fun piece that my friend got back from the finisher's this weekend--

Isn't he adorable?  

Best wishes for a wonderful Wednesday.

Your framing is going to look fantastic! Good luck with the needlepoint. Just think how happy you'll be having those chairs all done and pretty! Your friend's animal is soooo cute!

Beatrix is looking very very good. The frame is so pretty - you've really picked up the colors in your stitching. Sitting on the bed seems to have been productive but don't you think a nice wing chair would be so comfortable and make your tailbone happy? They even make wing recliners! (At least that's what my stitchy chair is). Treat yourself - you're worth it.

Love the frames you picked out - they should look great! That alligator looks like a lot of work - both stitching and finishing - but he is awesome.
