Home Sweet Home Finished!

I finished it up yesterday at Martha's stitch-in, which was a blast by the way! I was so excited to meet Deb (Lavender Rose) and see Martha again. The stitching, food and company was wonderful and I can't wait to go again! :)


Country Cottage Needleworks "Home Sweet Home"
Fabric: 32 ct. Cream Belfast Linen
Threads: Crescent Colours, GAST, and DMC
Started: 10/1/07
Finished: 10/8/07


I also worked on "Happy Haunting" a little bit. I got some more of the grass filled in...



Now I am almost wishing I had used the original fabric. Deb asked why I changed and looking at it in the natural light of Martha's sunroom I couldn't tell her why. I really liked it in that light. Oh well, I don't think I plan to rip it out now - maybe I'll sleep on it! :) Well, not much else going on. Dh just left - he got an extra day off because of the government holiday. I miss him already, but I'm doing much, much better than before. No more crying - lol! :) Write later!

    Aren't GTGs wonderful? I'm glad you had a lovely time.

    I'm glad you were able to spend an extra day over the weekend with your DH.
