Memorial Day Celebration

I would like to thank all the service men and women who gave their life to secure our freedom.  Also the men and women who have and are currently part of our Armed Forces.

Stitchin Update.

This is what I have been working on.  It is from Leisure Arts. I am using the recommend DMC colors. It is part of my WIP Challenge pieces.  Feels good to be doing these WIPs. I may get this done this week.  Maybe after this one is finished I will let myself start a new one. I have also started reading Breaking Dawn.  The last installment of the Twilight series.  I have had a productive weekend.  Got my mower fixed.  Mowed probably 1/4 of yard then ran out of gas.  Good excuse to stop and do some stitching or reading.  hehe.  I am going to get a small saw, work gloves, a gas container, and some dirt.  I am ready to work outside now.  I think I will move some of my perennials around.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Two new finishes and exchange pictures.

I have two finishes and a big happy dance.  I have been working on these pieces feels like forever.  The above sampler I started last year and it is a part of the WIP Challenge that I am a part of.  I almost put it back in the pile.  I am glad I didn't.  It feels good to get the darn thing done.  I had a head cold forever.  Finally got some antibiotics and I was feeling better but when I was almost done I broke out in hives all over.  Needless to say I did not want to stitch for quite a while. But now I am stitching like a storm now. 

I also was in a couple of exchanges.  My partners have recieved their pieces so I can show you.  I did not take a picture of my seasonal exchange  :(

This is my exhange from the seasonal one.  It is so cute.  A scissors fob that included a pair of scissors.  Wow.  It came in a pretty pink bag and she sent a card too.  Kathy always sends great exhanges.

This one is from the Lizzie Kate exchange.  Very very cute.  I love it.  Bonnie did a great job.  I love how she finished this.  Bright colors and even a carrot.  It will fit in well with the rest of my bunnies.

This is the piece that I sent to Bonnie for the Lizzie Kate exchange.  She said she liked it.  I am glad she did. 

Summer is here in Wisconsin.   Near 90s here.  We might not get a spring.
