Play Day Today And Stitchin' Pictures




All I did today was play outside with Josh. He helped me take stuff to the shed and I rode him around , around, around and around today on the lawnmower. He was doing all the driving. We had a fun day. Tomorrow is 2nd visit to dentist for part 2 of root canal. I know what to expect now... Raeanne and babies are going with me.



I do have some pictures of what I have been stitching lately.


My dad's Memorial Sampler. Designed by Midsummer Night Designs. I am stitching the pinkish red flowers at this moment. The letters are brown. They look reddish in the pix.




Next is the projects for my Olympic Winter Games of TV watching... I am going to work on 3. I joined an SAL group that will stitch and watch Olympics. I love the Winter Games. All the snow. LOL We don't have much snow in Alabama. I don't care for the Summer Games.




Here are Pictures:


This is a chart by Hands to Work from an issue of JCS magazine. Called This Is The Day. I have seen this one stitched on other blogs. I think it will end up on the wall in my Living Room. When I get it finished.



This is called Sailing Home. I am doing this for a Birth Sampler for Joshua. I also have the Girl Chart for Zoe.



This is Sarah Hartley 1827 Sampler. Designer is Historic Stitches. I just love this design.

Well, DH just walked in. I am making Pancakes tonight... Yummm

I like the saying on the memorial sampler, it is coming along nicely. You have some good WIPS you can rotate stitching on. Have a great evening April M.

You've got some great projects lined up! I think it's always fun to have a few projects to switch back and forth on.

Your Memorial Sampler is coming along beautifully. I love the verse...so pretty. The other WIP's are quite beautiful too. I especially like the Sarah Hartley sampler. I guess that I have a soft spot for historic samplers. Maybe that is why I majored in history! Thanks for sharing, April and I look forward to more progress pics!
