Finally a Finish

It's Saturday morning.  I've been up for almost two hours.  It's the one day of the week I should be able to sleep in.  Oh, well, if you're going to dream, dream big :)  But it's quiet.  And shortly Fons and Porter and Nancy Zeiman will be on and I can watch while I drink my coffee.  I'm going to make it a slow, relaxing start to my day.

It's raining.  And it's quiet so I don't mind.  I love the rain.  I love a good thunderstorm.  It's still fairly humid, but it will be a good day to be indoors catching up on all the things that didn't get done this week.  With my bum shoulder and a trip to Mom's, I didn't get as much done as I would have liked.

Once my chores are done, I'm going back to work on Shabby Roses Beauty.  I also have to prepare for Monday.  Sister is coming over for a day of quilting.  Can't wait.  She's going to try and it will be the first time she's trying something that I enjoy.  She's the one who taught me all about scrapbooking.  I will be forever grateful even though I haven't done much for awhile.

Finally a finish . . .

I started the stitchery of this project back in June, 2012.  I was on a business trip with Honey Do and he graciously let me visit two different quilt shops.  I found this pattern and purchased the background fabric and started drawing it off as soon as we arrived at our destination.  (The pattern is a Bird Brains design). 

Now a year later, I can finally say it's FINISHED.  It's not perfect, 

but . . . 

happy dance, happy dance, happy dance.

Wishing you a creative Saturday.

I know the feeling about not being able to sleep in but now I just think that is more sewing time. Your stitchery is beautiful.

I need to be as disciplined as you are. I caught up on emails, my blog and watched it rain :)

Thank you so much for your kind comments.

Your Saturday sounds a lot like mine, minus the coffee and the TV quilting show. =) Rain, stitching, sewing. Good day! Congratulations on your finish! It looks great.

My husband said - not such a great day out there, is it?

I told him it was the perfect day. Hope you got a lot of sewing done. I did a fair amount and even got to watch a couple of movies I borrowed from the library :)

thank you. I'm very pleased that it is done. Half the project is stitched with two strand floss and half was done with pearl cotton. That was a new experience.
