Well, I ALMOST have a finish to show... I have been working diligently on She Sells Sea Shells and am almost done. I have the sea shells to add on the bottom border, the white along the crest of the waves all the way across and some back stitching and the all the shells, the sign and the french knot buttons on the little girl's dress. I have really enjoyed stitching this and am now trying to decide how to finish it. Whether to frame it or finish it into a pin keep. I would love any other suggestions anyone has as framing is expensive but I worry about fading if I don't...
So, I thought I was going to work on this tonight but I got a a case of patriotic stitch-itis! I saw this freebie design on Just Another Stitching Blog (http://michele11wa.blogspot.com/) originally posted on Staci's blog (http://snippetsandstash.blogspot.com/) and have been itching to stitch it. So, I pulled some thread and fabric this afternoon and am going to start it as soon as Daddy gets the kids in the bath :-) Thanks for the great design Staci and bringing it to my attention, Michele!
We were away in NC visiting last week visiting my husband's family. We had much fun at the beach, on a Pirate Treasure Hunt, eating great seafood and spending fun times with our family there. It's good to be home and back into my stitching routine though!
Happy stitching! Meredith
