Two Hearts finis

Two Hearts, Loose Feathers #34 - design by Blackbird Designs
32 Count Golden Harvest by Silkweavers
Recommended fibers

Lots to share today! I finished up Two Hearts over the long weekend and framed it collage style. I LOVE how it turned out. I really channelled my inner French girl. :-) Click on the photo for a close up. I did a hemstitch around the piece and there is a really pretty lace trim along the top and left side.

The weather while on the cool side was nice for getting more of my outside in order. The only project I didn't get to was putting in my vegetable garden. I'll have to do that this coming weekend.

I'm almost finished with House #5 of HoHRH. I only have a couple of the window frames and shutters to go. I have agility tonight with the pugs so I'll finish it tomorrow evening with several days to spare! The plan is not to waste a day in starting House #6 - the midnight house - it's a biggy.
For my commute project this week, I started the latest Loose Feather, The Simple Things. I'm doing mine on 32 count Antique Gold from Silkweavers. It's going to stitch up quick I think.

I was not able to draw names for the Plantation Sampler until this morning. On Sunday my modem died and I had no Internet connection. I was so lost without it!

The Pail of Destiny (a nod to Edgar for the Destiny part :-))

And the winner is: Tracy J. I have emailed you Tracy.

Murry my new foster pug was dropped off on Friday. What a sweetheart he is! He loves playing with toys and chasing the other pugs. I don't think he will be with me very long at all.

Margie, Two Hearts turned out awesome! I love how you finished it! What a great idea! :) Your HoHRH is looking great too. I haven't even started #5 yet - I just have no motivation to work on it right now. Love your new LF start too. Can't wait to see more!! I wish I could adopt Murry, he looks so sweet. I'm sure he'll get a good home fast!!

I like your finish of the BBD piece better than the original! Your HoHRH is looking awesome and that pug is too darn cute. Don't get too attached....

I love what you did with your Loose Feathers piece. You did an amazing job. You definitely got in touch with the French-y theme ~ it's absolutely lovely.

Your other pieces are nice too and that foster pug is adorable. You can tell he's a spunky little thing. :D
