Happy Dance!


Rainy days have arrived once more. I did enjoy those warm sunny days so much! We even got outside and did some cleaning. DS cleaned around the front bushes while I cleaned out the birdbaths and filled them up with some fresh water. There is a lot more to be done though. DH and I talked about it all one evening and I was pooped by the end of our discussion! lol.

Looky, looky what I finished last night! I was so thrilled. Thankful Wheeler by The Goode Huswife done on 18ct. Aida in Natural with DMC threads. After I took the picture I realized I had forgotten to stitch the bird on the right side of the design. I am thinking I might leave it off and put my initials there instead.

Now to decide which WIP to pick up and work on. I am pretty much on schedule with my stitching. More so than in the past. One week a month for AAFG, one week a month for Independent Mind and the other two weeks of the month for whatever I please (and hopefully a finish). I was thrown a little off kilter last month because of all the excitement around here so I am leaning towards Independent Mind since it missed out on it's turn at the needle last month!

I hope everyone has a great day and thanks so much for stopping by! I always enjoy my regular visitors and it's so much fun to meet new ones! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Congrats on your finish, Sherry! Aren't TGH charts just the best? I wish she hadn't stopped designing. The big problem with rotations is that life just gets in the way, sometimes.

Congrats on your finish! I love GH designs. I hope that she decides to design again after she gets her life settled. Rotations have never worked for me unfortunately. I've tried but then I get caught up on a piece and then just finish it.

Beautiful finish, Sherry!! I love this piece. And how fun that you've scattered your orts out for the birds.

Way to go, Sherry!!! It's just beautiful! And I'm envious that it's nice enough to clean and fill the bird baths...

Congratulations! This is such a nice little finish. I just love The Goode Huswife and what a pleasure to see that she is re-issuing her designs which are so popular.
Your rotations seems to work great.

Okay, I know I am behind on my blog posting, but I didn't realize that I was THIS far behind!! I was reading your most recent post and thinking, "I didn't know that Sherry stitched Thankful!". And here it is, all finished. WOW!! YGG, it looks incredible!
