Got some more done on BC Valentine Row. Plans were to have it done by Valentine's Day, but got side tracked on the other heart design. Need to finish the tree trunk, the last 'e' , a question mark and a couple of hearts to finish it.
Along with the stitching that I showed above, i continued to do model stitching for The Sunflower Seed. Have been working on the sampler for the Shop Hop to be held locally later this spring. It is almost done, but I made a slight error and have to do a little frogging and put in a few more stitches and it will be done. Now, that Anita has gone to and returned from market, I can show you some of the things that I have stitched for her over the last few months.
First, is the big piece that I worked on late last year. It is called "Tall Seasons" and is on 30-ct R&R Antique Cotton stitched with Sampler Thread and DMC. It is a rather large piece and took me longer than it should have, but I worked on Christmas presents at the same time.
While Anita was gone to market, I worked my normal Thursday, then Friday, Saturday and Monday. Opened the shop on Tuesday and stayed and helped her get things in the shop returned to normal and began pricing the new stuff. Oh, and the new stuff was awesome. There is definitely some things that will be added to my stash, or 'store' as my sisters call it.
Have slowed down on my Vera addiction. Still watching ebay for a few things. Have received one more item since my last post and have one more coming. Maybe there will not need to be an intervention.
Spent Valentine's Day with my Dad and step-mother. Took lunch of Marinated BBQ Brisket, Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole, Corn and Red Velvet Cake down to them. (they are about 120 miles away). One of my sisters and her husband was there for lunch too. My other brother-in-law showed up after lunch and we met my other sister on our way home. My dad has bought another house in the same town and my sisters are making a weekend retreat/hunting lodge out of it. My Dad has not been feeling very well. He has had gout for a long time, but usually only in his feet. Now it is in all of his joints and he is having trouble getting around.Not much else new in my world. Time to go do lunch, go do a little shopping and then to the LNS for Monday night stitching.
