I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter. I had a very laid back day yesterday. I made our Easter dinner Saturday morning before I left for work. So I only had to heat up the "Cottage Ham"
A few months ago my girlfriend saw a stitched piece I did in honor of my mother.HERE She asked me if I could do that for her boyfriends best friends Mother. This friend of his passed away in an ATV accident and she thought that his mother would appreciate it. I finished stitching it last month and decided I better get it sewn up into something quickly because she was going over there this weekend.
I am still learning when it comes to sewing. But you know what they say? "Practice makes perfect" I think for the most part this turned out great. Two things I noticed, the solid red fabric was sewn a tad crooked on the right and I wish I would have used a different color, like green or tan in place of that solid red. Things you don't catch until it's to late. But all in all I am happy with it. We decided to barter for this. I make this and she in turn is going to paint a canvas piece for me. I am not sure what it will be but I know I will love it.
This is fabric for the back
I have some pictures to share on my next blog posting of my trip back home to Cleveland Ohio. It was a balmy 25 degrees when we arrived there on Friday Evening and stayed chilly untill Monday where it reached 55 and sunny HALLELUJAH!!! LOL We only went for 4 days but next time I am staying for a week. I need more time :)
Wishing you all a great day today.
Smile and stitch on!!
