I don't have much stitching to talk about as my thumb injury still makes using a needle awkward. I did manage to put a few stitches into Shores, but not really enough to show right now. I am ready to get back to stitching on a regular basis.
My BabyGirl has been home from college on spring break and we've enjoyed having her here for an extended period of time. She's been on the go of course, but did get in some family time. A day with my mom going to yoga, lunch and shopping, and more shopping and lunch with me and my sister yesterday. BG knows how to shop!
My Goode Huswife "Fruitful Clusters" is back from being framed. I finished it last year, and just got it back from the framer. There is a little glare on the glass, but hopefully not to much of one. I really like this burled wood frame. It was stitched on 40 count Creme Brule with the recommended NPI silks.
Working on this piece made think of my own blessings, and so I modified the design a little. I added a cross on the smallest house. The red fox running down the side of design reminded me of Roxy, a dog BG and I found abandoned by a river and brought home with us. She was the light of my life (after family of course), but died almost two years ago. I stitched the fox without the charted white tipped tail to represent Roxy, who was indeed a blessing.
A beautiful weekend - hope you enjoyed it, too!
