Better Late than Never!



I don't have any big stitching news to share right now! It feels like a let down of sorts after last week's shower of framed finishes. I have been working on AAFG some more and it is slowly coming along. I don't why I just can't make myself work more on this piece. I am ready to pick up on a new start but I can't decide which one it will be!

While digging through some old boxes in my attempt to do some Spring cleaning and decluttering around the house, I found two older pieces (framed) that I stitched for my son when he around 2 years of age. I loved the verse on the one shown but I don't why there is no design. Was it like this in the pattern or did I just leave it off in an attempt to hurry up and get it done? Afterall, I did have my hands full with 2 little ones wanting my total attention. Either way, I am really thrilled I found these. There is one more older piece that I did for one of my sons that used to hang in his room but he took it down when he got older. I am hoping to find it in one of these boxes. I plan to hang all these older pieces up again but on a different wall.

Sometimes I play around with backgrounds while I have my morning coffee so some of you have seen a lot of changes the past several days. Too much time on my hands! lol.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

That is a sweet finish! I like to fool around with my backgrounds too, but I always seem to pick ones that others have and I hate doing that, so I go back to what I had.

What a lovely piece that is. It's so nice you found it packed away like that. I hope you find the other piece you're looking for!

What a lovely saying! I have often wondered what I will do with some of the pieces that my sons have in their rooms now...hopefully they'll want them some time in the future for their own little ones!

Oh waht a lovely finish. I love the saying on it. It's always fun to rediscover something wonderful that you had out away and forgotten.

I can see why you would have liked "The Fifth Day" what a beautiful blog. I loved your Show and Tell. It is amazing how much time can be spent searching for something new for a background.
Be always in stitches.

What a pretty piece..I have my youngest daughter's birth sampler I need to frame again, and she wants it to hang in her daughter's room, but I remember a time when she thought she was too old to have it displayed for her friends to see.
