Me again!

Since I am off this week from work, I have been managing to get some stitching done and enjoying every moment of it.

This is Ellen Birdseye by Good Huswife. I have wanted to stitch this for a very long time and I got to thinking about it on Tuesday night. I decided to start it. It will be my what is left of vacation project. LOL I worked on it for most of the day yesterday and I just love it. I did stitch with the threads it called for but not the fabric. I had this very mottled piece from Silkweavers for a long time and decided to use it. The fabric is gorgeous and I wish I had more of it to stitch other reproductions on it. I don't know the name of it so will have to so some searching. It is beautiful though.
Today the sun is out and dare I say it might be in the 60's. Ahhh Spring.
Here are a couple of happy faces that brighten my day no matter the weather.


Have a great day!

Your chosen fabric sets the floss colors and design off perfectly, Sharon! Keep enjoying your spring vacation, perhaps stitch in the garden on a warm afternoon. I love doing that when I can keep the weeds from mocking me. :D

This is gorgeous! Reminds me of Seven Sailors. Is it possible to still buy this piece, do you know?
