Finishes Framed....

I wanted to share pics of the way that my sweetie framed my finishes for me. I just couldn't be any happier with the work that he did. He always amazes me with his ability to look at a piece of my needlework and "feel" the way that a frame would accent it the best. (I especially love the lights that he drilled into "Deck the Halls" and his perfect red and white candy-stripes on the snowman box!) These are the gifts for my mom's neighbors...I must admit that it was a wee bit hard to box them up and send them away - I just adore them and think that I might just be re-stitching them for me eventually! :)
Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving! (I give thanks that calories don't count on turkey day!!!) :)

Some finishes for Christmas...

Here are pics of the last two finishes that I really needed to complete for Christmas gifts for this year. It feels SO good to have these under my belt! Right now, I'm working on Glory Bee's "Happily Ever After". This piece will be staying in our home!! :)

It's nice to know that I can move along on a couple of my WIP's (definitely want to get back to "Delicate Beauties" and "Come and Share" and maybe start a new project too!!! :)

Completed Projects Info:
LK's "Winter boxer"
28 ct "sand" linen
Christmas gift for one of my mom's neighbors

Shepherd's Bush "Deck the Halls"
28 ct "sand" linen
Christmas gift for another one of my mom's neighbors

To catch up on my last post...our homeschool "frog" adventure ...umm...didn't go so the words of the song say..."another one bites the dust". How should I put this? The best equation we could come up with was "tadpole in mailbox, left in hot Florida sun for a few hours = froggie funeral." Never mind that the words in bright red, BOLD letters on the box reminded the mailman NOT to place the box in the mailbox but to do door delivery - - grrr.....we'll be trying this experiment again once a "Florida chill" moves in later in the winter. In the meantime, we've moved on to studying geology...and I'm happy to say that nary a rock has been harmed thus far in our journey!! We're really enjoying this study and I'm sorry, I just can't resist adding this, "Geology rocks"!!! :) :) :) :)
Can you tell my health (though apparently NOT my humor!) is improving?! Thanks for all the love and prayers - - -
"Rock" on!!!
