My Stitching Chair and I . . .

are seeing quite a bit of each other lately. I just finished the surface embroidery for the front yoke of the christening gown and will soon be heading back downstairs to my sewing machines.

For my weekend trip I kitted up a few little freebie designs to stitch while DH was geocaching. I drive while he navigates and searches, so I like little no-brainer designs for intermittent stitching. Unfortunately, I managed to mess up even this simple design, but feel I managed to redeem it well enough. :-) Not quite finished yet, but soon surely!

Wow Von your stitching is so pretty as always!! Is that Brazillian Embroidery on the Christening gown? I love that!!! Thank you for the blog today!! I am so glad to have that root canal over and done with!! I need more things like fillings etc but my ins. is used up pretty much for this year. I think I still have about 300.00 or a little less left on the benefit, but wow do they ever charge lots. He is a great dentist though and seems to be a compassionate man. Very glad of that!! I am doing great!! Debby :)
