A long overdue gift

Happy Firday!! Thank you to everyone who left such wonderful comments. It is scary to go through but we are blessed that everything turned out in our favor.Today it is a very wet and rainy day here in South Carolina, but even with that I am excited that the weekend is near and it is suppose to be BEAUTIFUL! Sun, Sun, Sun!!! Can you tell that I am excited to see the sun :D

It is amazing how much stitching you can accomplish when the weather is yucky. I started This piece on 2/25 and put the last stitch in it this morning. WooHoo. This is a long overdue gift for my Aunt. How I will finish it is still a mystery even to me. I am thinking maybe a flanged pillow?? I decided to use soft colors for this one and I am pretty pleased at the way it turned out.

32 count lakeside linens
Floss was a mix of DMC, WDW Lilac and Kreinik very fine braid #4 271

Hopefully I can get this finished this week and in the mail to her soon. Her birthday is in May and I think this would be a great surprise for her.

I am also going to be adding the name and birth info to that baby sampler I finished a few weeks ago. My friend had her son on 2/20. I am having a framed made for it by a stitching friends husband. I can not wait :)

I hope you have a great weekend and accomplish alot of stitching.

Thanks for visiting my blog your comments brighten my day!


  1. That looks great. That one has been on my list to do for a few years now. I give my mom an angel ornament every year.

  2. Stay warm and dry! Great finish...I am sure your aunt is going to love it!

  3. Congrats on the sweet finish! I think it will make a beautiful pillow.
    I was so excited to see the sun today that I walked 7 miles. I think I may have over done it a bit though. I'm feeling a little sore tonight.

  4. Lovely stitching! I"m sure your aunt will love her gift!

  5. It's beautiful and will be a lovely gift.
