Well would you look at that,
we are well into October
and what a summer we have had.
Many new adventures have occurred
and many more to follow I am sure.
As you know there has not been much action here
on the stitching front
simply because, well,
there has been a few other priorities.
And on the "flip side"...
The following picture represents
a couple of months of work.
(Lavender and Lace)
I began this piece at the end of May
when the Stitching Sisters gathered at Brentwood.
Spent a bit of time on a lily pad
with the local frogs
then moved on through the pond to drier land.
When I first thought of stitching this
I wanted to work it as a mirror image
of the original chart simply because
six years ago when Peaches turned 18,
I had stitched the "Quiltmaker" (Lavender and lace)
so I did not want "Sweet Dreams"
facing the same direction.
Since both were stitched for my daughter
and will hang together in her home,
I thought it would be nice
to have them facing each other.
More work, I know,
but with todays technology it was simple.
Here are the two together
and with the right spacing it
will look fabulous on the wall.
Same matts and frames with just a bit of imagination on the matting.
OK, now on to the priority:
Our little Peach has her hands full
with a new baby girl!
and in turn Grandma and Grandpa
are having a wonderful time
adoring, observing, and encouraging,
but most of all
Loving everything there is to love
about our little
~ Cheers to sharing a life of love ~
