april 27 - friday finishes


Well, I guess this isn't really a finish, but the stitching is finished! This is the photo that disappeared yesterday! We had a freebie kit exchange at Stitchers' Timeout, and this is the design that Cheryl sent me. It is a design from The Workbasket called Pink Flower. There were supposed to be initials on the right side, but I left them off. I love the colors in this one...it was really fun to stitch up. Thanks again Cheryl!


And this is my April ornament. I finished it up this morning before work. It is a design I found in The Gift of Stitching magazine (November 2010) called The First Day of Christmas by Nancy Pederson. It is stitched on piece of red linen with Weeks floss - "Holly". My French knot pulled right out, so I used a bead for his eye! This looks kind of faded...it's really quite bright!


I am so glad the weekend is upon us. The weather is supposed to be clear and a bit warmer I think. This afternoon I am going to a Memorial service...one of my co-workers lost her husband on Sunday. He had a massive heart attack. I don't think this will all really hit her for a few weeks. It is such a reminder of how fragile life is, and how your world can change in an instant. Hug your hubby extra hard tonight!

Thanks again for taking the time to visit. I hope you all get to your stitching baskets this weekend!

  10. Another co-worker? Not again! Didn't some of your co-workers lose her husband just recently? I am so sad for you and for her. It must be hard on her. And when I say recently, I mean recently in your blog's timeline. And yes, you have no idea, what tomorrow brings.
