Alyssa's Sweet Sixteen Framed and matted



Alyssa's sweet Sixteen gift is back from the framer.
This is the first time I ever had a piece done at
AC Moore. I was panicked when I dropped it off,
the women assured me it would be ok. They
did an excellent job. It was very hard to pick
out the matting colors, the women behind the
counter helped me. It looks beautiful.
It is under glass, which I don't do much. It
is only the second piece I have ever had done
under glass. It is hard to get a good picture
due to the glare of the glass. I hope she likes
it.

Spiced Tea Finished. 14th finish


LHN Spiced tea ornament completed. My daughter
Amanda bought me a kit for christmas. The design
is by Littlehouse needleworks. I made up a wish list
on 123 stitch for my family to order things I might want
for christmas. I am a Tea Lover and really like the design.
I changed some of the colors around and tweeked the
design. I added some crystals in the corner portion.
Are you a tea lover or a coffee lover??

My christmas ornament exchange arrived



I belong to a group called Hooked on Exchanges.
I came home from work to open open up
my christmas ornament exchange. This ornie
traveled across the seas to come live in my home.
Jayne did an excellent job on this ornament. This
is in the JCS 2007 christmas issue. I have wanted
to do this piece myself. What a great treasure.
Stitching gifts are the best. Thank you
Jayne :) Click on her name to visit her blog,

13th finish - For Alyssa's sweet sixteen




Finally I finished my Daughter's Sweet Sixteen Gift.
This pattern was in Cross stitch Crazy May 2008 Issue.
When I first saw the pattern if reminded me of my
daughter Alyssa. In the magazine they said you
can finish this in a weekend, they called it a weekender
project - NOT. Maybe if you started friday morning
and stopped sunday night without stopping at all. I
want to see someone do this in a weekend :)
The colors were hard to work with. I am very pleased
that it is done and with be taking it to the framer. My
daughter Plays the clarinet and also guitar, she is a free
spirit. She did not want a party so we went on friday
and bought her what she wanted, a new MAC laptop
computer and printer. My daughters like apple
computers. Her birthday is not until June 23rd,
but with the extra paycheck week in april I
purchased it when I had the money. I will
be taking her out to dinner and
also giving her this piece. Something she will
have forever. It's my 13 finish. Thank you to
everyone who leaves a comment on the blog.
I truly look forward to see what everyone has to
say. It make my day knowing I can share my
work with other stitchers.
