Finished!


The last stitches went into Acorns and Threads yesterday and I can hardly wait to frame it up!



Stitching this was a nice break in the action from the NRRs that have taken up most of my stitching time the last few months. But the next mailing date will be here before I know it, so I'll get cracking on that now.

But for today, the kitchen is abuzz with two birthday boys baking themselves a birthday cake, and dinner being prepared for a family celebration tonight. Kevin and Kyle are 14 years old today!
