On Sunday, Craig and Lake stopped by to enjoy the cake with us and have pizza for lunch.
And of course just trying to get a shot of the 3 of them was a bit difficult. We had a really nice time.. and after they left, the chair in the other room with the Ott light on was calling my name to do some more stitching. Very relaxing day it was!
At the hook in this week, Margo brought her rug that she has finished. It turned out just beautiful. She was working on a snowman trio she drew up. Hoping to get a shot of that next time.
Joan had also brought a rug she recently finished. Linda was checking out the label on the back, and I did get a close up of that too below.
The rug is Joan's thumb print. It is titled "Graphic Self Image", and was designed in 1985 when Joan was in Art school. The label below has a picture of her holding her portrait that she drew or painted. That I forgot to ask. Sorry about that Joan. So here it is transfered onto linen and hooked.
Also this week I received a package in the mail from Lori of HomeSpun Prims. She is also a member of AAPG. I am a Pear lover through and through. Love the look of them, love to eat them, just Love them! Here she gave me a bunch! The small ones she made and the large one was made by Renee of Crow (or crows) Roost Prims. They are soooo sweet! I love them Lori, and thank you again for such a sweet Birthday gift! Your work is amazing and so precise!
Joan gifted me with some beautiful hand dyed wool, floss and chocolate.. A hookers dream :). Thank you so much Joan. I look forward to using up the wool and floss.
And Nancee gifted me yesterday with some more beautiful wools, MORE chocolate (how are these people finding out that I love Chocolate... hmm??) lol. and also the sweetest little Singer oil can. Thank you so much Nancee!!
And besides spending time with so many friends and family over the past couple weeks, I have been so enjoying my time with stitching this piece by Stacy Nash. I only have a few more elements to add to the right side and then finish it off. I have some fabric that I will use. Will take a final shot when it's completed.
