I finished up Earth Sampler yesterday. Today I'm going to drive to Hobby Lobby and look for finishing ideas. I'm thinking box or a oversized black frame. If I can't find anything like that that I like, I'm going to finish it as a pin keep. It's less than 4" square. I'm hoping to have it totally complete in the next couple of days.
I love this piece and I want to stitch the Halloween and Christmas sampler. If any one wants to trade Earth Sampler for one of those two charts, let me know.
I also finished the stitching on my Gilded Dragonfly Scissor Purse. I'm all set to start beading today and I should finish that by the end of the day. I'd like to start on the needle bob today also. So I'm on track to get this one totally finished by the end of my vacation.
First day of vacation and the weather sucks. It's snowed last night but not nearly as much as the forecasts were predicting (3 to 5 inches). There is about a 1/2 of an inch of the white stuff and it should be gone by today. But the temps are predicted to be low for the bulk of my time off so I won't be able to do any of the yard work I was hoping to. This is the first year since I've been taking an at home vacation that I didnt' have amazing weather.
I need to work on an exchange piece this week and I'm all set to go with that. And get my start on house #4. I think I do that tonight while I'm watching TV.
The company pugs have settled in very well and we are all having a blast.
That's Aoife on the back of the couch, from the left, Seven (Aoife's sister), Mikey, Molly and Clancy.
Aoife, Clancy and Seven. Seven and Aoife really look alike and when I see them from their backsides outside playing, I can't tell them apart. They are having so much fun. I'm going to tell their Mom that Aoife and I are keeping her. :-)
And finally Mikey, his tougue is too large for his jaw and it always sicks out. :-)
