It is gray. It is rainy. It is a good day to stay indoors and stitch. And that is my plan! Last night I got another house finishes from my Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart.
That was a big house to "paint". It took longer than I expected (but then they all take longer than I expected - LOL) to fill in all the gray green. I changed the design a bit here and there. I only put in 3 birds - one for me and one for each of my boys. And since I don't have any family birthdays in this month. I left out the initials and added more hearts. I love hearts on a piece!
And then I started the first block on the LAST row!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE that big pumpkin. It is going to be one of those white pumpkins - isnt' that cool? I'm hoping to get the house framed out today so I'll be left with the mindless fill in part for later in the week.
Here is a wide shot of the entire piece.
I feel like I'm in the home stretch. And right now I'm jazzed about getting this one DONE! I pawed through my stash of UFOs the other day and found several other BIG projects that I would like to release from their ziploc bag repositories. I will NEVER EVER EVER EVER run out of projects.....and I think that is a VERY GOOD thing!
Today is my youngest son's 23rd birthday - Happy Birthday Nick! He requested one of his favorite meals for dinner tonight. Marinated grilled chicken over penne pasta with alfredo -yummy! I got the chicken chilling and marinating and we have a cake all ready to go. Just gotta find the candles.
Hope there is some stitching in your Sunday!
