Well, it's a little crooked as I placed it to take its picture, but it's not stitched crooked! LOL
Here is the final phase of Carissa's little "Hopewell House," in her Neighborhood. A tiny surprise or two will be added before I mail it off to Bine tomorrow. I think I'll always remember this house, this time in my life, and this Neighborhood Round Robin.
The chart is from Little by Little, I have changed the DMCs to GASTs and fussed with those colors a bit. Some of the fancy stitches are my additions, as well.
This was a full day with writing and editing and sending out my Summer issue of our Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild (ANG) Newsletter. We have some awesome teachers planned for our Chapter this year: Joan Thomasson, Judy Souliotis, and a Susan Portra lessons--and others. Many of our members go up North for the summer, and come back to FL in October, which is when we start up our regular meetings again.
My newest stitching friend, Martha, from Punta Gorda....see her brand new blog: http://gonestitchininsteadofjustawishin.blogspot.com/ is having a Stitching Party at her house on Sunday and I can't wait!! She was so good to find me and invite me via email. We met this week in person and really hit it right off! She's just awesome!! It's going to be such fun having her in my life as a friend. Please welcome her into our circle. She's a gem. You are going to love her sassy, kind and gentle ways!!
I have some stash to show you, too. But, have to wait until later as stitching calls me tonight.
Sending hugs to all and thoughts to Isabelle as she continues to draw nearer to her wedding day!! Can you believe it!!?? So exciting!!
Keep well everyone! Especially you, Becky! :) xxoo
