On the Wall!

Look what I finished! Not only finished but popped into a frame and put on the wall.

Lizzie Kate - Grateful, Thankful, Blessed
32 ct. Parchment
WDW floss

It looks so good and I just might leave it up all year! The color combination is lovely; even my artist daughter commented on the color choice. :)  And the sentiment is appropriate all year round.

I've received lots of comments from you readers about restarting projects of your own. It seems we have all had projects we were not entirely happy with once the stitching started. Size is a big factor in deciding whether or not to start over. Lucky for me this one is small and quickly restitched!

I finished this one mid-day on Saturday so still had time to pick up another project. Since Babe's Honey Farm was handy, I put in a little more time on it. Here's my progress so far:

Babe's Honey Farm Sampler - Victoria Sampler
Did you remember to set your clocks back? These days it's not the chore it was in the "olden" days. I'll admit that it is nice to wake up to a little light in the sky when it's time to get out of bed. But I think going home in the dark will be depressing. Good thing I have a Seahawks game to watch tonight! :)

I hope you had a great weekend! Back with more later!

So far, it is a very exciting game. On to stitching. It's great to have that pretty design up for Thanksgiving or maybe all year. We should all be thankful all the time so it would be appropriate!

That turned out just lovely, Von! I am surprised at how much I like those colors together, but they do work so well... And I love the sentiment--definitely leave it up year-round :)

That looks so great Von! ha! I just thought of YOU last night. I started a new seasonal stitch and after one hour realized it was not going to work. I will restart today on new fabric.

Looking good and the frame fits a treat.

Your beautiful stitching complements the sentiment. Truly worth hanging year round.

It looks so great in that frame. It was definitely worth restarting this nice design.
Nice progress on your Honey Farm project.

Lovely finish, I agree the colours are lovely, even seeing them on the computer screen,
HoneyFarm is growing well.
