Here's my latest finish to share.
The small wooden spool was to be used in the center but I am happy with using the buttons I pulled from my stash.
With the pin cushion is done, I am back on my guild SAL. I have two sections to complete before our September meeting to be back on track. I can do it! I need to step it up and get ahead of schedule as I am waiting for pre-stitching for an October class to arrive. Surely when it does, the SAL will take a bake seat. All and all I am happy with myself that I am keeping up much better than in the past with SAL's.
And naturally I started another small project - all from stash of course. A girl needs a take along project doesn't she? Both my SAL and my Rosewood Manor pieces are on scroll frames and stands so they are not the easiest to take along to stitching night.
Threadworm Primitives, Beggar's 4th. That really is the recommended blue stitched on the linen.
I managed to get everything back on the walls in my dining room before Mr. W. got home. Geez, he commented on the shutters in the upstairs windows that they were painted a different color.....duh! no, we had no shutters on the upstairs windows when you left. I had them installed while you were away. Oh, he says, but they don't match the other shutters. Oh Mr. W. how did you manage logistics for 200+ people, driving 9,000 miles in 8 weeks? All the shutters new and old were painted to match as well as the front door. I decorate for myself as he is not one that notices things.
Got my new shelf up. I think I am liking the display of family photos on the desktop rather than on the wall. Besides I just can't bring myself to put half a hundred holes in my freshly patched and painted walls.
