Good News

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

I almost forgot to post this good news. Angie ( Thursday stitcher) phoned from Arizona earlier this week to report that her new grand-daughter Samantha arrived safe and sound on November 11. Mom, baby, both grandmothers , Dad and big sister Olivia are all doing fine.

Here is my finished teapot. I decided to not include the writing that was on the handle and the base. The sparser look suits me better. I expect it will become a tea cosy.
Kathy...are you looking? is the Queen. The backstitching is gradually allowing the pciture to have some definition. It is slow going though.
And finally my progress as of last Friday on Pretty Pumpkins. The colours in this design are fantastic!

That is the most lovely teapot! Congrats :)
And the queen is looking super too!
Those pumpkins are the prettiest I've seen!

Are the pumpkin colors really as vibrant as they look on screen? They're wonderful!

Beatrice said...

Happy dance for the teapot. Beautiful!!
Mine is no where near finished.
The queen and the pumpkins look gooood.

Congratulations on finishing your teapot, Ann! It will certainly make a very pretty tea cozy.

Lynn said...

A tea cozy would be a lovely idea! Your teapot is so pretty.
Wow, those colours are fantastic on the pumpkins!

You'll have to stop showing those pumpkins or I'll have to start kitting it and if I do that it's a start! I love it !

Boy, your progress is wonderful. Your teapot is beautiful and will make a wonderful cozy. Glad to see you are backstitching your Queen. It makes it so much more visually exciting. Your pumpkins are stunning. Have a wonderful retreat this weekend. Will miss you all. I will be there in spirit.
Hugs to you and Dan
